    After not using my vehicle for a few months, charged the battery and started the car. The idle is running at 1500rpm instead of just under 1000rpm. The accelerator pedal is stiff and unresponsive, when pushed down the revs do not change. Any ideas? :)

GO TO A KRAGEN OR AUTOZONE AND HAVE THEM RUN A TROUBLE CODE TEST, THIS COULD BE A TPS PROBLEM, VACUUM LEAK OR STUCK/WARPED THROTTLE PLATE.

2004 fiesta zetec 1.4 idling over 2000 revs.have to turn on a/c to bring it down to 1800 revs?


This is caused by only a few issues, first and most common is an engine vacuum leak, you should be able to hear the hiss if you have one with the hood open, the second is a sticking idle speed control valve.

2005 AVEO - at idle the engine revs up and down (1000rpm to 1500rpm +-). If it is idling smooth you can turn the AC on and it starts reving up and down. Think I got some bad fuel which began the problem,...


check your fuel cap when they start to go bad the pressure in the tank won't read and it will make it do that. and if it still does it then try cleaning the throttle body and the mass air flow sensor when they get dirty they can cause the same problem

Power/reving up issues


The engine has a rev limiter to keep from blowing engine up with too much rpms at idle.
