      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. High Revs When Idle

    I'm new to the forum so I hope you can help and please forgive my lack of knowledge. I have a 2002 focus 1.6 petrol. Recently I've noticed very high revs when the car is idle i.e. when my foot is not on the accelerator. This does not always happen but will do most of the time, with revs around 1500 to 2000. Sometimes it corrects itself and revs lower to normal, other times I can lower the revs by lifting my foot off the clutch somewhat and the revs will, on occasions, stay low. However, it is clearly a problem. I had some advice on the issue and have tried replacing the throttle position sensor and idle control valve, but neither has made any difference.
