Cars Q&A

Hi Shiva, i have ford ikon 1.6 2003 model. Recently, i have noticed that, when i start the vehicle, sometimes it jerks the whole body of the vehicle, not a smooth start as before. I took it to Metro Ford, they repaired the wirings in engine compartment, which were damaged by rats. But, still the problem persists. Thanks, Alok

  • Expert Hi,
    For the starting problem the problem could be with fuel supply or timing.For jerking of whole body, the problem could be due toworn out engine bracket/support which results in transmission of excessive vibrations to body.It should have been inspected by service during repairs.Please get the same checked

  • If the jerking is only when the car is started, have the starter electricals checked out. If all is well with the starter and it's electricals, checkout the engine seatinf and foundation.
    If the car jerks when running also, check out the spark plugs and their connections.Next check the distributor electricals and timing.
