Hi guys ive just bought my first ever fiesta st 150 2007..i have no clue about yte car and it has one of the loudest exhausts ive ever heard but ive notices on cold starts and revving the car hard it smokes alot and has really strong fumes, also when doing full acceleration pulls the clutch pedal will stick in for a few seconds..only does it when changing at max revs but is completeley fine otherwise...are these nofmal issues or should i look at geeting it into a garage ?
Any advice would be ideal

Do you mean on cold starts and high revving later on when driving... Or high revving from cold start?

A de-cat might explain the strong fume smell as you won't have a cat filtering the fumes out :) Sounds like you may have one if it be popping and crackling

Yeah the engine its self actually sounds pretty smooth its just the puff of smoke when it gets red lined and the sticky clutch pedal ...probably just shouldnt rev it hard n itl be fine lol

Yeh at high revs its going to be dumping out more unburnt petrol and probs best to lay off the rev limiter lol you may want to get the clutch looked at though as mine does not stick

Clutch pedal sounds like a possible Slave Cylinder issue. May be worth bleeding everything first.
