Impreza just had a full engine rebuild. The car choked whilst overtaking.Garage say timing belt jumped, reason because fuel was low,starved engine making it judder and the belt moved.Is this possible

Hi Angie:
Sounds very strange to me.
Anything is "possible", however, since it was just rebuilt, I would suggest that the reason given is not "probable".
I would be asking that the person who did the rebuild do the repairs, and unless the problem was proven to be totally unrelated to the re-build, I would be asking that it be done at no charge.

Changed timing belt on my 2001 ford focus 2.0 dohc and now it is idyling high. I read somewhere that I have to drive around for 20-30 miles for the car to relearn the idle. They said after driving around...

That's rubbish, when the fan belt is changed as long as it's not to tight or to loose everything will be fine, the fan belt operates the power steering, air conditioning etc, if that's all working when fitted an easy way to find out another problem your not sure of is to pop into a garage and have a didiagnostic test.

Speedfight 2 runing problem

If it's dying when you let off the throttle, just turn the throttle adjustment screw in a little till it keeps running without your foot on the throttle. I don't know just where this throttle adjustment screw happens to be, but that's what needs done.

I have an L reg Ford Fiesta Ghia we have a re-accuring problem of when you first start it up the choke doesn't automatically cut in and as soon as you put it into drive or rev it splutters and cuts out...

Hi, This seems like the automatic choke is not working best & easy way is get a choke cable from scrap yard & and use that and ignore the automatic choke. I dont know how many miles your spark plugs have done but if over 10,000 then it's worth changing the spark plugs at same time. Please leave me feed back: Malcolm Campbell, Thanks.
