Ford Puma cutting out

Hi, my Ford Puma has suddenly starting cutting out at junctions when first started, the problem goes away after she has warmed up? She fires up straight away until the next slow down or junction? Please Help!

Please note this is a Puma (S) Reg (not on list?!)

Many thanks
Julie

I would say its the idle control valve I had a KA that done the same and a new sorted it out. Was told that you can clean it but would not last long. So I went for a brand new one from ford and it was fine after that :)

There could be a number of places the water could be coming from does the leak start from front and work its way back?
Try the following -

. A faulty seal at the bodywork joints below the reinforcing panel may allow water entry in the area of the side trim panel and bulkhead.
Check the area for faulty sealing. If necessary, seal the bodywork joints with sealer.

start with the easiest.

Ford Puma Cuts out...


There are 2 things that can go wrong one cheap and the other around $100-200. The first problem could be the fuel filter if it is getting plugged up it wont allow the fuel to flow through to your engine sufficiently, but at faster speed it will still allow the fuel to flow enough. The other problem could be the fuel pump, this is the more expenive route. This will have the same effect on a car as the fuel filter. If I were you I would try replacing the fuel filter first to see if that made a change, this should only cost you around $5-20.
