hi again all...hope u r all having a fab holiday season.
i am having a problem trying to solve an issue i have with the idleing speed on my escort...my mechanic is very busy at the mo', so i am trying to make sense of it myself.
the problem.....for example, when i am waiting at a red light and have just taken my foot of the gas pedal, the engine is still revving at just under 2000 revs for about 10/20 seconds...when it returns to about normal, it is still a little erratic.
my car is a 1.8 ghia, but when pulling off, it seems " laboured". i have had a lot of 1.8's in my driving career, the power does not seem correct for a 1.8....when i take my foot of the gas pedal while moving, after a second, the car lurches back..it is really starting to annoy me now!...i dont think its the accelerator cable, but i am no mechanic.
i have put new "pro-spark" ignition leads, and motorcraft plugs in...still no joy.
might it be the points?.
i hope i have explained the problem clearly enough, and hope you guys and gals can help.
many ta's and happy new year to u all.
