Please bear with me on this? but with engine running? stationary not in gear does the engine respond ok ? ie will it rev up with no problems ? i assume it starts fro cold/warm no problem ? please say which engine fitted and is it the carburettor type ? as for the screeching if car has power steer ? may well be drive belt loose so as you turn the pump load causes belt to spin on drive pully if this has been for a while then may i suggest you renew belt as it may be impending a premature failure/snap so no power steering! when you least need that to happen ? hope this helps

Fiesta started making noises either gearbox or clutch? clunks going in to reverse, shudders driving off in 1st gear


sounds like your clutch is going out, is it hard to put in gear with clutch all the way depressed? could also be the sinkronyzer going out, could be the gears in the transmission also going bad. need to check the fluid in the transmission.

It seems like fuel pump gear is in wrong position. You need to remove drive belt and turn pump gear 360 degrees. Before you do that, you should know that there is 3 marks: first on flywheel, when 1 and 4 pistons is on top, second at the end of the camshaft and third in fuel pump gear (16 mm bolt). If you never do that before, I suggest you to go to mechanic, otherwise, you can do seriuos damage, like folded valves.

Press on accelerater and nothing happens. shut


There is a sensor in the accelarator pedal that is going bad. This should also trigger the check engine light so the mechanics can scan it and see the problem. Take it to the dealer, it should be covered under warranty.
