2004 ford fiesta zetec 1.4 14v diesel...cutting out!


engine cutting out is a sensor probably the timing sensor. needs replacing. as for braking would think you have a leak in the air line. even with the engine not funning you should be able to apply the brakes upto 3 times.. think this model is not fitted with abs like my sisters. when engine is running rev upto 3000 rev's if it starts to judder. also listen for hissing sound, if you find one repair it. most problems are down to a leaking air line.

Speedo will cut out when driving


Sounds like your "speed sensor" is failing. When it fails it will cause irregular shift patterns and engine idle speeds.

Ford tick over problem


The battery could be slightly weak, making the computer go on the fritz, try a fresh battery!!!! The rev counters bounce often with a weak battery.

Leave feedback good or bad.

Rev counter jumps whilst idling and then engine cuts out


Your problem sounds as if the thermo sensor....which controls the air fuel ratio when engine is cold....is faulty. It is a common fault on this model.
This is not an expensive part, and takes only a short time to fit.
Good luck

Revs ''hunt'' on tickover, sometimes revs drop so low car cuts out


Thanks to some advice I have fixed the problem with my Granada. The pipe work from the exhaust manifold to the inlet manifold has a short piece of plastic pipe which needed replacing. This seems to have done the trick.

I would like to thank you for running this site. Without it I would still be re-starting my car each time I stop at a red light!
