In Topic: My Escort MK6 revs fron high to low to high again

10 April 2010 - 01:47 PM

Hi everyone, we have this same problem on our daughters R reg 1600 Zetec Escort, ive got a Haynes manual for it which shows you what the ICV looks like and it says its on the inlet manifold but i cant find anything that matches what the Haynes manual shows, has anyone else had this issue and where the hell due i find the ICV and how do i get to it, can it be reached from the top of the engine or do i need to get under the car the access it?
Many thanks, Bob.

I eventually sorted this problem, in the end the car was undriveable and i couldnt get home from work so i called the AA out, they diagnosed a blocked Cat in the exhaust. I drilled some holes in it and it worked fine thought it did sound like a turbocharged hair dryer.
So a trip to the exhaust depot and 139 later its all fixed and revs fine.

the only real difference between cold running and warm running is the mixture. i would say that during warm up when the mixture is made richer, u have no problem which sound to me that the mixture could be too weak when the engine is warm. uve already checked the intake ie the air filter, try for leaks in the pipe from the air filter box to the engine. also cleaning the maf sensor that is on this pipe monitors and adjusts the mixture. try this link.


i know this is a tdci reference but the position and cleaning method are almost identical.
try it as it costs nothing!

Thanks for the response and link, when looking up info on cleaning the MAF sensor it seems you need to be careful what cleaner you use, so i went to Maplin and bought their PCB Cleaner as it says it leaves no residue (it did leave a little but you can simply blow it off).
Unfortunately after cleaning and reinstalling it is still the same, looking up this kind of problem in forums highlights that this is a reoccuring problem on lots of makes and models :((
