Hi Ive just had a replacement engine fitted to my Mk 6 Escort, problem is - it constantly ticks over at around 1500 revs, with a cloudy exhaust. There are no air leaks (new gaskets - and checked) I have been told that the temperature sensor is broke and that the ecu now believes that the engine is cold ALL the time, so making the mixture rich. What sensor is this and where can I find it? Please help
