Car cuts out

Since Fiesta diesels are a pretty new release I would take it back to the dealer under warranty, assuming it is still under warranty. It may be a blocked fuel filter, or contaminated fuel as it sounds like it is starving. Being so new I doubt that'd be the case, unless you've accidentally put petrol in it?? My daughter filled her new diesel up at the petrol bowser on the second fill and paid quite a fee to have the system drained and reprimed with new diesel fuel.

Skoda Felicia 1.3 choking/struggling when accelerating

Hi mate, This is not a solution, I don't want you to get your hopes up.

I've had the same problem for around a month now i've got an N reg felicia 1.3 glxi too. Was told to book it in for a service but after reading what you have put, i'm sure that won't fix the problem. Do you have the same problem when the car is idle? When I turn my car on and i'm on the phone for 5 mins it will start doing it then too. I've run out of idea's too!
