2000 1.8 lack of power - Kovert
I have had my escort van for 2 months now. it works fine ish . Untill i come to a hill sometimes i have had to drop down to first gear Which I know is not right . I was wondering if anyone knew what this problem could be . Also i have a weird knocking noise on 1 of the back leaf springs . I solve this by spraying wax oyl on the problem and it lasts for a couple of days . is this a big problem and does it need sorting .. many thanks Oliver

I would start with a service - new filters (air, fuel & oil), oil change, new plugs etc

Sounds like a knackered bush in the leaf spring - a minor job
