I am new to the forum and hope someone can help ?
My Mondeo 1.8 Zetec 2000 year model developed a problem where it wouldnt rev higher than 2500 rpm when driven but would rev higher when in neutral and if you try to get the revs higher it just sounds asthmatic like its starved of air so we suspected a blocked fuel fliter. It was overdue a service anyway so we changed the plugs, air filter, oil, oil filter, and fuel filter but it made no difference. It was due its MOT so while there i had the EGR valve cleaned out which i hoped would fix it, but it didnt.
Then i noticed today that when i start it from cold and drive it hard it will nearly red line on the tacho but as it warms up it wont rev above 2500rpm again. Other than this it runs fine, tickover is normal, fuel consuption has not changed and emmissions where fine when it went for its recent MOT.
I would appreciate any help and advice as i dont want to spend money wastefully,
Many thanks, Bob.
