Same problem fixed by local jaguar specialist by fitting a heftier return spring to the throttle return. Just need to get used to pushing the pedal more.

Engine revving high on start up


I would definitely have your Idle Air Control valve checked/replace....I've had them stick at around 3000 rpms, even while driving, and couldn't stop the car without turning off the ignition first....

How to fix this problem?


A big vacuum leak will do this it can be from a open PCV valve sticking open EGR valve to a sticking a IAC (idle air control valve) sticking open. You basically have something get stuck and closing.

I have an unnerving repeated knocking (louder than clicks) sound coming from my engine. the mechanic changes the main engine bearings but it won't go away. it goes away at high revs but very loud at lower...


I'm assuming your mechanic changed the rod bearings also. There is also a thrust bearing which keeps the crankshaft from sliding back and forth as it spins. Also check your flywheel/flex-plate, depending on whether your vehicle is auto or stick. Sometimes they crack and can cause a knocking sound.

My 01 Accent cuts out on me when I come to stop and dash board lights up. But vehicle starts up with no problem. What causes the car to die?


It may be that the idle speed of the motor is set to low.A stick shift should idle at about 600-700 revs,an auto at about 750 revs.If the air con is used there is an idle/up device that brings the revs up a fraction because the air will make the engine idle slower.the problem may just be a small adjustment.Hope this helps

A fairly consistent tapping noise from the top of the engine between 50 - 70 mph. After 70-75 mph in seems to quiet down.


sounds like a lifter is bleeding out or starving for oil at low revs
check oil level and oil pressure
if thats good lifter or tappet clearance next to check
is engine seviced regularly?
slugde build up can cause problems also
if V6 petrol see a lot of worn valve guides causing noise worse when warm and noise comes in and out at 1200RPM
tappet clearance issue noise would be there all the time
lifter can also come and go while holding revs up

Over revving


I don't know the year but it could be a defective IAC solenoid. If its an older truck then it could be a throttle cable.

Engine high rev at stop and slowly goes to idle speed.


I've got Hyundai Lantra 1.6 year 2000. It's take time to start when it's hot. When I start my car it revs at about 2k-3k rpm. It also does it when I come to a stop. When I come to a stop it will stay at a higher rpm than that of idle speed. It drives ok when on freeway but uses more petrol. I have changed the water & petrol pump but no luck
