Intermittent electrical speedo failure and engine cut out.

Asked by Mar 14, 2014 at 02:07 AM about the 2008 Ford Fiesta

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Speedo arm does not move off zero, then next start-up, everything normal. Engine can just die on long hill ( with A/C on). Not steep. Shut everything off, restart and all goes as usual. Cyclical metallic 'ter-tink' sound about once very two minutes. Not related to speed of engine. Has been like this a long time and has not varied or  got worse/better. Car just driven for short hops and parked on slight slope.

1 Answer

I'm probably wrong, but if the engine dies on a long hill with the ac on, check the fuel filter.
