Hi!
My puma over revs sometimes and it's really annoying. If the revs have been at lets say 3000rpm for about a minute, if i take it out of gear or put the clutch down the revs will go up to about 5000rpm for about 30secs before returning slowly to a reasonable count. It's been on the diagnostic but no problems were found. I've heard of a few pumas having the problem, but haven't heard any solutions, does anyone have any ideas/ know more about it? Any help would be great thanks :)

I had a similar problem and had to have a lambada sensor replaced.

the fault is the speed sensor on the gearbox.Easy fix.

I will fix it!
Sounds like the idle speed control valve or potentiometer. Again easy fix but depending on your year the part could be costly!

[color="#9932CC"][size="2"][font="Arial"][font="Arial"]Hiyah Val - This happened to me last week - it turned out to be the air inlet control valve, we took off its 2 bolts,cleaned it with WD40 and wiggled it about the next day - car worked perfectly. Of course it could be any of the other replies too unfortunately but they're not hard to fix. Jane B) [/font][/font][/size][/color]

I've had the same problem with my puma, and I've had to disconnect the speedometer from under the bonnet (speed sensor????) and the over revving has stopped!! I just don't know how fast I'm going!?!???
Any ideas please.

You need to refit a speed sensor as driving without a speedo is a motoring offence.
