Question about 1993 Ford Festiva
I currently have a 91 ford festiva with the 1.3L automatic shift, When i'm driving around and start to stop, the engine sounds as if its about to stall out, then comes back to life, it repeats this the whole time i'm stopped. If anyone has any idea what would be causing this, please let me know. thanks larry i have the same thing but come to find out the fuel filter was in upside down. i turned it around and it runs worse. i will try cleaning TB and r&r PVC if this works i love you guys . if other ideas come to anyone ill try anything right about now
Hi there. First make sure that your engine is idling fast enough. If the idle is too low (below 750rpm), it is likely to stall on idle. You should also check for vacuum leaks around the intake manifold and associated black rubber hoses. Some people use carb cleaner spray to spray around the hoses and seal areas to check for leaks, because the engine will speed up if a leak is found. I rough idle can also be caused by a bad spark plug wire or fouled spark plug or even a overly rich or lean idle fuel mixture. So remove the plugs and check that the plugs are burning clean (no black soot or glazing). The plugs should be near white clean. If you find a bad plug, then follow the wire back to the coil. Verify wire is good such as testing with an ohm meter and comparing the reading to the others. A big difference would indicate a problem.
