Engine revving


Recommended Posts

I have 2004 Ford Ka, 1.3


engine is revving by itself when idle. engine management is on. engine sounds like its struggling to breath (intermittent)


once I drive the car, it can drive steadily without my foot on the accelerator!!.diagnostics suggested 02 sensor.

been advised to put fuel treatment in it

the car is getting a little unnerving to drive at times

Could be the ICV.

Idle Control Valve stuck!

Could be throttle cable or throttle position sensor or a serious air leak - that would be a nice easy fix with some WD40 but usually its the ICV - Easily removed and cleaned.

Sometimes a good removal and clean can fix it if you are lucky - other times a replacement is needed!

here is what your looking for

2 bolts to remove and a simple clip wire. give a good clean with wd40 and refit.
