    Escort Mk6 Estate auto
  1. escort 1.6 zetec surging

    Hi, Can anyone help me in identifying what he means by "The problem with the revs was caused by a little air valve front r/h side of the engine was blocked. I cleaned it out with break cleaner, and it's now running perfectly." My Mk6 Escort auto (Zetec-e) suffers from throttle surging very occasionally when I take my foot of the accelerator. It continues to accelerate sometimes for a few seconds, over times a bit longer. It doesn't do it all the time and its seems to tick over happily. Its only covered 26,000 miles and wasn't used much be its last owner. I've been told to look at the vacuum pipes but as its not doing it all the time I'm guessing it something sticking. Any help appreciated. Thanks
