  1. Hi there, wonder if anyone can help? I have a 03 1.6 Streetka that normally runs ok but yesterday started this issue of revs not dropping off when you take your foot off the pedal. This morning I try it and it runs fine again. No doubt it will return again when it feels like it! Likely causes? What to do? Although she normally runs real sweet, she has had the engine light on for a while. The local indy took a look some time ago and suggested it might be one of 2 sensors on the exhaust, but that one is likely to break off when changed and if that happened it might mean replacing the exhaust. Is it possible to check a sensor? This morning I have pulled Obd code P0420, which is clearly to do with the exhaust but not sure of the best plan of action? Could this be something to do with the revving issue or have I now got 2 separate problems to sort. Any thoughts or advice would be greatly appreciated. Jeff
  2. After changing gear and slightly pressing on the accelerator pedal my car makes a loud excessive revving noise, the accelerometer ticks over yet my car doesn't speed up excessively and when i'm setting off in first makes me sound like I have my foot flat on the accelerator pedal. It is a problem in second and third gear too. If I put my foot any heavier on the pedal it doesn't affect the speed of my car just lets out a loud revving noise, makes it very difficult to drive, is anyone aware of what could be causing this problem? Thanks
  3. Hi guys, this is my first forum post and hello to everyone on this forum 😊 To start things off I am having some trouble with my car lately and the problem is forever getting worse by the day, I will start off in first gear and everything is normal, acceleration is normal and the clutch bites instantly, but when I hit 2nd gear if I do it quickly the revs will stay up at 4500 - 5000 rpm, so I have to depress the accelerator to bring it down to its right revs, as soon as I put a little pressure on the accelerator it revs right up to 4500 or higher again. The only way I can accelerate is by dabbing at the accelerator which is very frustrating. I have done a few clutch tests, such as putting the car into 3rd as I am stopped and releasing the clutch so stall it and it does stall when I do this, I ain't very knowledgable on cars myself, any help on this or recommendations would be brilliant, getting very stressful now, thanks a bunch guys, I an upload a short vid clip to show you better to
  4. Revving Up!

    So...i have a fiesta zetec s, its a diesel 1.6 59plate, i normally drove to work this morning takes about 10 minutes stopped the car still no problems but as soon as i put it into neutral and took my feet off the pedals it reved up continuously and didnt stop, so i turned the engine straight off, left it a minute turned it back on an it was fine! Very strange anyone had something like this before? Thanks charlotte
  5. Speedo & ECU - My Story Jan 2013 - Bought: Ford Focus - 1.4L - Mk. 1 - 2001 - 110k miles. Right from purchase the speedo would occasionally cut out. When cut out this effected the ECU. When speedo cut out car would stutter with its fuel injection because ECU is confused. When speedo comes back to life, car is fine again until speedo cuts out next time. Feb 2013 - This speedo starts to cut out every journey + the stuttering. The fuel injection stuttering starts happening even when speedo hasn't cut out. At the same time the engine begins over revving itself when car is stationary. At the same time the engine struggles to accept fuel when putting foot down in gears 1, 2 & 3. I research the issue, bought and fit a new speed sensor: bit.ly/1125vvW Speedo ceases to cut out, happy days. However the fuel injection stuttering/over revving/ engine struggling to accept fuel remains. Perhaps I left problem for too long: confused ECU has damaged something else? Very common Ford problem. Does anyone know of a solution to the problem?
