Hello News Group I have a problem with my P reg 1.25 16V Ford fiesta. I was
driving the car and the engine cut out I now have the problem that the car
will not start it just makes a clicking noise. A mechanic told me that the
engine may be gone but I dont belive him I thinking that the problem may be
linked to the throtle control does any body know ???? what the problem may
Thanks In Advance
very difficult to say with so little information, "cutting out" could mean
did it suddenly cut out, did it slowly die, does the engine turn when you
try and start it, and what makes you think it has anything to do with the
let us know........
Well the original problem was to do with the Mass air flow sensor but the
garage told me the problem I had original of the car just losing power when
travelling along was to do with the throttle position sensor. The car just
cut out and would not restart when I turn the key now I just get a clicking
is the clicking from the starter motor 'cos the battery is now flat?
if it is flat, is it 'cos you've been turning the engine over and over or
'cos the alternator wasn't charging (no power = no engine electrics = stop)
