About the Puma
A subcompact three-door coupe, the original Puma was a vehicle that lasted for 15 years and was built exclusively at the Ford Niehl plant in Cologne.
Engines offered were a 1.4-liter, 1.6-liter and a 1.7-liter all with 5-speed manual transmission.
All Pumas are front engine, front wheel drive vehicles with four seats fitted with alloy wheels based on the Mark 4 Ford Fiesta.
In total, over 133,000 Pumas were manufactured with huge popularity found in the UK (at one point there were over 50,000 Pumas registered with the DVLA. Following the success of the Puma in the UK, a number of limited editions were sold to include Black, Thunder, Millennium and the Ford racing Puma. Of the latter, only 500 were created between 1999 and 2001 and were initially unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show.
Emphasis was placed on the fact that this sporty aesthetic was more than just chassis deep with Ford taking technologies from race and rally programs and inserting them into a road car.
Bodywork on the car was lighter using aluminum where possible with the addition of a strengthened gearbox.
Internally, the standard front seats were replaced by high grip bucket seats to help with fast cornering, and the Ford Racing emblem could be found embroidered within the cabin.
Some usual fault codes for this car are:
- P0171 – A commonly seen error code, this means there is either too much oxygen or too little fuel in the exhaust.
- P0141 – Showing a problem with the O2 Bank 1 sensor relating to the heater circuit. Deemed a generic code, the sensor responsible for determining these readings can be found behind the catalyst on the back of the engine.
- P0443 – Showing a malfunction with the purge control valve, this generic code is registered by the engine control module.
- P0365 – Not enough voltage from the camshaft position sensor B moments after the engine is started.
- P0410 – The ECM has not registered an increase in the O2 level in the exhaust.
