Question about Cars & Trucks
It has a 1.3 ltr (4G13) carburettor engine in it. Under heavier loads, accekerating from low revs, or climbing a hill, mainly half throttle upwards it bogs down, surges, the odd backfire e.t.c, if you manually pull it into 2nd gear to raise the revs ( decrease the load) it will accelerate with little bit of surging. I notice today that i could hear a clicking noise somewhere in the dash that seems to be it time with the car surging. I have been told that these feedback carby systems do have a reed switch somewhere, I have no idea what it's for or where to find it. Any help would be great as I haven't been able to find any info on this particular model. Thanks

pretty complex problem there man! sounds like it could possibly be something with the transmission. at the part when you say if youre pulling at 55 and it wont speed up, does the engine rev up but it doesnt do anything or no change in engine speed? if the engine sped up, it sounds like a transmission problem, if it didnt make a change in the engine, then it could be as you said a fuel problem. also as a last thought, it could also be a sensor malfunctioning. you might want to take it to a ford dealer and get it diagnosed
