Ford Fiesta Problem

I have a 2005 Ford Fiesta that normally runs great but has been cutting out in the cold weather when you take the rev's off. Also temperature guage doesn't seem to work - constantly shows 'normal' not even cold in the frosty mornings. Help please??

You need to replace temp sensor. the computer sends fuel to the engine based on engine temp. when engine is cold it needs extra fuel to stay running.

The gauge can very well be "lying" to you.

As a precaution, I would do a routine cooling system service on it. This includes completely flushing the coolant, replacing the thermostat and radiator cap (believe it or not, a bad cap can cause issues too).

On the few Fords I have owned, mine were always in the middle, or to the left of the middle.

Motor homes should run cooler actually, beings as they tend to have heavy duty large capacity cooling systems.

You may have an air pocket in your system which some times happens.  One way to get rid of it is to take the upper hose off on the engine side,  fill your system with water until it runs out from your engine block, replace the hose, start your car turn you heater on and set to hi keep the radiator cap loose until the temp start to rise then close tight.  Once the air pocket had been remover you can drain some of the water from the radiator using the lower drain plug and add antifreeze.

pull the instrument cluster out and check the printed circuit and connector to it from harness, plug it in and out three or four times, this may cure the problem.

SOURCE: my mercedes e300 (1989) starts and runs ok but then cuts out.

I had a similar problem with my 1986 300e , which got progressively worse until the car was no longer driveable, I changed out the fuel pump relay and the problem went away.

I would be looking for a vacumn hose leaking. The cold engine needs a rich mixture and braking uses the vacumn booster causing the mixure to lean. A warm engine races with the extra air.

Check the coolant temp. sensor (It controls warm up RPM, open loop ECU mode) And change the fuel filter every 20,000 miles to prevent water in filter from freezing ( fuel starvation).

Ford fiesta heaters blow cold i rev the car and get warm why is this


The Ford Fiesta certainly isn't the most affordable small car, but especially if you consider the Fiesta's stylish appearance and surprisingly stout feature lists, it's one of the better ways to downsize-without feeling like you're moving downscale, that is.-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2005 voyager runs great when cold but as soon as it heats up it won't go over 3 thousands revs.


You have a cracked head, are they are cast, when cast metal is cold it shrinks, now I am meaning really cold outside like almost freezing, and when it gets hot the crack opens, don't know if they are cast or aluminum though, but that is one of many tthings it could be. I wish I could be alittle more specific for ya

Ford tick over problem


The battery could be slightly weak, making the computer go on the fritz, try a fresh battery!!!! The rev counters bounce often with a weak battery.

Leave feedback good or bad.

Ford tick over problem


Hi there!

A few more things to check for you.-

A vacuum leak in any of the vacuum hoses will cause the ECU to make random guesses at what's going on.

Have you replaced plugs recently - or at all? This is probably the main cause - and certainly worth a try.

Fuel filter should be replaced at recommended intervals - about 3 years.

Clean your leads and HT gear really well with a degreasant. Any losses will be more noticable at tickover than high revs.

Lastly.........wear on cam lobes or timing belt.

Hope it's cheap for you!
Please spare a moment to rate as fixya! if any of this information proves useful. Thanks (I don't get paid for this)
