Brand new beemer, how i roll!

Naw lmao, jokes! Got a Ford Fiesta S reg for only £300. Bargain

Only problem is that the car jumps slightly and in 2nd and 3rd gear, person who i bought it off said that they had the coils or something done and it was fine? anyone know how to fix it?

What do you mean by jumps? As in the car jerks when you change from 2nd to 3rd?

It's Purple btw..

If no one mentioned it....

Jus' Sayen..

Wack whip.

The coils(springs) would have no effect on a car jumping in certain gears.

Kangaroo Petrol!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sounds more like a gear box problem - for something as common as an old Fiesta, probably be cheaper & easier to just change the whole box.

Just had another thought - what are the engine mounts like?... When worn they could make it feel like it "jumps" as you change gear.

S reg is 1998.

My calculator says 2009 - 1998 is 11.

When your coils go it jumps from first turn of key or randomly, Not when changing gear.

More likely Gearbox or Clutch problems

Look's like the £300 wasn't such a bargain...

I don't see how a car that attracts 17 year old girls can be considered a bad thing :thumbsup:

Sorry for not replying, been in bed all last night, feel like crap! Yes it's purple and for £300 it's a bargain, in fully working order, and it's only a minor problem that it jumps occasionally, it's stops doing it too when the engine warms up!

And my mums friend does body work and is going to spray it with me for free aslong as I pay for paint!

Keep it purple, you will just create yourself problems otherwise.

I am surprised you bought a car with an undiagnosed problem.

oh it will go just spiffing with your purple tutu :lol:

Sounds like he didn't fix it then, 2 months is not a long time.

I not surpised that Dean did so, however I would be surprised if anyone else bought a car with a known problem that they don't know how to fix.
