Engine Performance problem
1981 Ford Fiesta 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 33000 miles
Hi, I have a Mk1 fiesta 1981 1.1L, the problem is: when I start my car and drive away from cold it will pull away lovely with just a touch on the accelerator, the pedal feels nice and light and responsive and the car revs freely and pulls along lovely, then as the car warms up it seems to bog down and needs to be revved harder just to get it to pull, and feels like I only want to use a light acceleration and change up as soon as I can because it seems to be killing it if I try and drag each gear out. I have changed the points, rotor arm, leads, dizzy cap, plugs, condensor, air filter, oil and oil filter, set the dwell angle with a dwell meter, set the timing but it still wont play ball, I am convinced it's once the car is warmed up that is causing the problem.
