Question about 2007 Ford Fiesta 1.4

Open Question

Hard to start after sitting more than 20 minutes

Hello everyone and thank you for this forum At the beginning when I changed the chain (belt) distribution at the ford slowed my car to change the car does not idle, I returned to my Ford asked it changed the fuel filter, the filter air and Bougier, but still the same problem so they cleaned the air flow meter, but the idle problem has not disappeared, after I lost two coolant hoses Radiator one side and the other heating side after idle problem disappeared is all alone, but it created another problem, the car will not start if I leave parked more than 20mn. it's been more than six months that I have this problem with my hot start ford fiesta 2007 1.25 Duratec 16V petrol, let me explain the problem, cold car starts normally, because I think that helps the car starter to start, hot and stop directly after the engine started if I want to start it as normal but it should not exceed 15 minutes I or 20 minutes, if I stop the car more than 15 minutes or 20 minutes after I circulated can not start the car unless I press the accelerator for the help, I enconre back again to ford it changed my fuel filter spark plugs and cleaning the throttle (air flow meter), they conducted a scanner the scanner shows no errors, but the problem persists, I remmener at a garage I tried another coil ignition harness another fiesta and my coil in my other vehicle coil works very well in the other fiesta, he told me that I have a problem in the Butterfly (air flow meter). I do not know what to do everything is normal in my fiesta acceleration even cold start, warm start except after I leave the car stopped 15mn to 20mn or more Prayer helped solved this problem, I even changed the battery. As soon as both if it starts then stops immediately, sometimes I have a great timing as if I walked into a wall, accelerating and I bad at idle when I change speed 1 and 2 , 2 and 3, 3 and 4. Now I think the position sensor camshaft, but the scanner does not display any error Help me stp Help me Thank you very much

SOURCE: surging while driving

This is a notorious problem with the Windstars. There are oodles of ground straps in them. Make sure they are all clean and tight. ESPECIALLY THE STARTER GROUND STRAP. If it's loose, the car may just die when you turn up into a driveway or parking lot or just go over a bump. If you notice the "Check Engine" light comes on momentarily, at the time of the surge or the engine kills completely, it's DEFINITELY the starter ground strap! My engine used to kill at odd times -- even when on the freeway going at 75!-- Then we'd go over another bump and SURGE_O_RAMA, the engine's running again or I'd restart it and it would be fine for a while. What's happening is the loose ground strap loses it's connection when you go over a bump in the road. The next bump jogs it back into the connected mode, albeit tenuous at best. All of the computer techs couldn't find the problem. It took a 70-year old seat-of-the-pants mechanic to make the SIMPLE fix. It took so long to find the common-sense mechanic, however, that the down-shot of all of the surging tanked my tranny, which I had to have rebuilt! AND then, after I drove away from the 5-star AAA BBB "transmissing" shop, I found that THEY HAD NOT TIGHTENED ALL OF THE GROUND STRAPS! I took it back. They had no knowledge of ALL 9(?) ground straps and had to take it to THEIR mechanic who tightened them ALL down! It's been 5 years since then and I haven't had another problem with it. RULE OF THUMB: EVERY TIME YOU HAVE THE VAN SERVICED have them tighten-down ALL of the ground straps! If your mechanic doesn't know what you are talking about, go find a new mechanic. Generally, the AAA "Top Shops" are your best bet. They fix things right the FIRST time. I still haven't found a manual that has all of the ground straps listed, by the way.

SOURCE: Ford Escort 1998 fuel pump not working.

good old ford lol, try looking at the crank sensor its located at the front of the engine tucked in right hand side of exhaust manifold and gearbox, two pin plug, i have also known these to have no end of faults with the fusebox.
easy to remove, and solder the connections inside they all suffer eventually, if your not to handy with cars i recommend taking to a auto electrician, easy if you know how. Good luck Davelee

I'd be looking at removing IAC valve, and cleaning it out with throttle body spray cleaner, and checking mounting gasket as well. Usually some success with cleaning it & spray ports it came out of, but if not you may need to replace it.

Well it sounds like you ran the belt the wrong way. Water pumps will not work properly so then it will get hot. And as far as electrical is concerned....hmmmmm maybe run the belt correctly then remove the battery cable for about 10 or 15 minutes to see if your computer will reset itself. Does the engine crank and not start or does it do nothing when you turn the key?

Timing on a 97 wrangler

Hi Jake. With the hood open and the engine at idle, find yourself a 3 or 4 foot long small wooden dowel. Then have some sit in the jeep and slowly bring up the rpm's, when you here the noise beginning, press the end of the dowell onto the different parts of the engine, while keeping the other end of the dowell against your ear. When you find where the noise is coming from, you will be left with no doubt.

When to replace timing chain on 2003 Camry V6?

Replace the timing belt at 90,000 miles.

It will not damage the motor (bend the valves) if it breaks or jumps time

Finally, if you do change the belt, make sure that the water pump is inspected very close for any evidence of coolant seepage at the impeller shaft weep hole. If there is ANY evidence of wetness or leakage, replace the pump then. Easier to change the pump when the belt is off, than to have to do the whole job if the leak gets worse, and, if it leaks down the road, coolant on the timing belt will damage the belt, and you will have to buy a new belt, too. Change the plugs at 90 K miles, too.
