Ford Owners Club - Ford Forums > Ford Models > Ford Escort Club
Hi, I dont know if anyone can help, but my beloved R reg Escort estate seems to keep rev'ing when I stop. This is mainly noticable when the car is started up from being cold. Its as if I am reving the car, but my clutch and brake are only being pressed. The pointer moves up and down below 1 on the counter. It's like the vehicle is losing power. I can also hear the engine making rev'ing noices as well. Other than that she runs like a trooper.

sounds like a problem with the cold start/choke system.
