1996 ( N )

On cruising its fine but any light touch of the peddle or general acceleration and the car just bucks , like its kangarooing. You can drive it but its very unstable. Doesn't matter if its cold or hot!

Mine 1.3i N reg... does the exact same... at a loss... if i find out before you i'll shout :)

In Topic: over revving

My 1995 ghia used to do this also, she started at 2000rpm and came down to about 1200rpm after about a minute... I think it is the idle valve myself. Mine now does this to a lesser degree because she also seemed to have "kangaroo petrol" and the rev's randomly went up and down so i had the air bypass valve replaced... that knocked the bunny revs on the head and it calmed the start up revs for a year or so but now it does seem to idle high again so will look at replacing this too :)

This is useful to me too as my 1995 ghia always had excellent heating until recently and now it seems to blow freezing air constantly, so much so that it freezes any condensation inside the car! We had thought it to be the stat valve... I can't live without heating a day longer!!!
