Rev needle slightly erratic when cold

3 posts in this topic

driving the fiesta (MK6 1.25) I noticed that we stopped a few hundred yards after a cold start at lights and saw the rev counter needle appeared to be jumping up and down a little around the 1,000rpm mark (not running lumpy or anything) , I presume this is the car settling down as it's warming up and is normal to see it fluctuating like this? once fully warmed , seemed to settle ok where it should be.

cheers Pete
