Odd Problem With Revs

5 posts in this topic

Hi,

I have a strange issue i haven't encountered before and hope someone can help.

When i come to a stop and am completely stationary, the revs go to to about 3000 on their own for a few seconds before coming back down. My foot is nowhere near the accelerator at this point.

Has anyone else had this happen?

I've not heard of it on a Ford engine...Fiat, yes...but not Ford

Does the engine have an Idle Air Control Valve (IACV), if it does I would be looking at that first, i.e. disconnect completely and restart the car and see how it behaves.
