Fiesta 1.6i Sport water through intake

Post by [email protected] » Fri Nov 27, 2015 9:06 am

Posting on behalf of a friend's colleague.
He drives a 1.6i Sport Fiesta same shape as the RSI.
Apparently the car got some water through the intake, he drove home and drained everything (not sure what procedure he took or what exactly he drained) car drove fine for a while and idles fine but as soon as the revs goes over 2000 the needles bounce and car doesn't sound good.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Did he change the spark plugs and drained the oil?

Could also maybe be the throttle position sensor

Unplug the throttle position sensor. And see if it does the same.

Danger Boy had the same issue on his RSI on a random morning

So last night he unplugged the throttle position sensor, car reved up to 3500 and the needle started bouncing again.

Great that you got sorted. Same thing happened to my dad a month ago after washing the engine.
