What might be the problem of my Ford Bantam 1.3i xl rocam

Asked by Guru9ZML6S Dec 20, 2020 at 05:58 AM about the Ford Bantam

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I bought a new battery for my Ford Bantam 1.3i xl rocam.
After replacing the top gasket and putting everything in order
few days then it started having cold start problems.. It's
making that sound like when the battery does not have
power. While driving and it comes to rest it shut downs. When
I put it in neutral it will idle but reving it will causes it to go
off.. What might be wrong with it.

Check the vacuum pipes that go between the branches of the intake manifold. These are for the EVAP system that channels the fuel tank vapours from the fuel tank breathing system to the intake manifold. Check for any intake vacuum leaks , like the brake booster as well. Check also the Throttle position sensor and wiring.
