Trouble starting my 2005 Fiesta 1.6 from cold. Fires briefly, but no reaction when accelerator depressed. It just dies. Soemtimes a trickling noise. Took five attempts to start this a.m. Starts fine when hot. Should also add ; get a sign 0/0 OFF alongside engine symbol.
Hello Mike - thanks for your answer. Haven't got round to trying all your suggestions yet. Had a go with the spare key and the car started on second pull - better than the five the other day. Trouble is we bought the car from a relative and can't really go back to her. Just to add to the sum of your knowledge - the sign alongside the engine symbol is O/D off, not O/O as I thought. Handbook says it means overdrive off - a small switch on the gearstick apparently. Anyway I'll press on and try to find a solution. Incidentally, some of your suggestions don't explain why the damn thing starts when warm with no probs. Can't be fuel suppl can it?
