1991 Ford Fiesta XR2i 1.6 EFi from UK and Ireland
A high performance masterpiece
Nothing as of yet. (only owned it a week).
Small puff of blue on cold start, slight wearing of valve seal guides, nothing to bother about yet.
Although I have only just bought the car, I have carried out some work just to make sure it will be reliable.
They Are: -
Flush out water system (full of brown rubbish).
Change spark plugs.
Spray carb cleaner through throttle body.
Clean idle speed control valve, and set base idle speed.
Top up battery water.
Check cambelt (could be due for change later in the year).
Check oil, although I may change it for piece of mind, and use flushing oil 1st, as this quietens the valves down a lot.
In my view a steal at £1300.00. The car runs like new and the white paint work has no marks or dents, and everything works, even the A.B.S.
The interior is immaculate, although the standard speakers could require replacement soon, (just component standard replacements, no sub or 6x9 rubbish).
The engine pulls superbly in any gear at any speed, and the exhaust note from the standard pipe sounds great.
The styling is still as fresh today as in 1991, with the four spot lamps, body kit and the 13" alloys.
This car will definitely be with me for a while.
When buying one make sure that no mods have been done, not even wheels or engine parts, that way you know it'll be a good one that yobs haven't thrashed.
If looked after and cared for, they'll go on forever.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
