Hi guy's

I have a problem with a 1.8TD Di that picks up revs on its own! :blink:

When coming to a junction and you dip the cluch the engine will rev on its own to about 2000-2500 rpm.

Since this is a Di it has an electronic throttle so no cable to get stuck.

I think it may be something to do with the electronic side of things because if you turn the engine of then start up straight away everything is ok!

have any of you had a problem like this?

Cheers

Hi,

I have an escort caby, but the problem that your describing is happening to my nasty peugot. Its a 2lt xsi and when you stop at lights it revs the same amount as yours and also after you have changed gear up or down the revs remain the same then rise. We changed the air fillter but no change and we think it could be a sensor somewhere.

If you can find out what it is please let me know as the problem is embarassing especially at traffic lights when the car revs everyone stares at you thinking you cant drive lol

Thanks
H

Hi himi, thanks for the help :D
that sounds about right, just look straight ahead & avoid eye contact when at the lights!

any idea where this valve is & what it looks like? I might take it off and see if i can clean it up!

is yours a diesel engine with the electronic throttle?

cheers

Hi,

We tried spraying carb cleaner in ours still no better, still look like I cant drive or want a race. Dont go into town in that car as to many boy racers.
