ford fiesta - misfiring, now all the time
hi, ive now got a new problem with my diesel fiesta now.
when its cold, as in after ive left it overnight when i start it up in the morning, down to about 5c, so its not as if its gone below freezing.
1. its a pig to start, sometimes it will start, fire a couple of times then die, yet other times it will start fine!
2.why is it that i have to press down the clutch pedal to aid in the starting of it?, with the clutch pedel not depressed it sounds like its "draging", i never had to do that when i had my petrol engined car.
3.if i just let it tick over, it sounds like its misfiring & its also making a "pinking" noise & has got rough idling?
when it gets warm it fine, anyone got any ideas??
