Hi there

Just bought a cheap run around last week, as my current car is also off the road pending repair. (I know. Great isn't it!)

The car is a Ford Escort L reg. 1.4 LX. Turns over fine, and then noticed that it is misfiring when drving at low reves (say in traffic and slowing down).

But on the other hand, when it is low of fuel it was really bad trying to get over 3000 revs. Then when I filled it with petrol, it seemed to drive more smoothly! Going to check spark plugs and HT leads tomorrow but is anyone aware of any such problems, as I don't think my basic tinkering will sort it out. : Cry:

Any help, greatly appreciated.

Many thanks

Phil

Sounds like trash in the fuel tank, replace fuel filter and clean gas tank.
