Okay I noticed this last night.
when I'm driving the engine feels like its stuttering, i mean it hesitats and then comes back.Kinda like I hit the clutch for a slight second, it disengages and re-engages. kinda like I'm slipping on ice for a second and then get grip.

I have a manual btw.

anyone have any ideas about whats happening.
I'm also going to be phoning ford today to see when I can take it to be checked.

Yeah, almost guaranteed the DPFE. I had the same symptoms as you list and had the DPFE replaced. Solved the problem, but 10,000 km's later and I think the problem is surfacing again.

I really need to get a new engine.....hmmm, 2.3L anyone?

You'd want to search in Team-tech or problems rather than the tuning forum though.

Moving over to Team Tech. Thanks.
And good luck.

Do a search for DPFE and you will see what the problem is.. Take it in to the dealer and have them look at it. It's a VERY common problem.

I took the liberty of doing the search for you.

DPFE
