Question about 1998 Ford Escort
I have a 1998 Ford Fiesta 1.3L Encore and ever time i press the clutch down, the engine revs just build and build as though i am pressing the accelerator. Also, when coming to a stop at a junction, by putting it into neutral, the same thing is happening. my car sometimes overrevs when the clutch is pressed and the only way 2 sort it is to put it in neutral, wait a few seconds and suddenly the revs drop rapidly; they then get so low that the car usually stalls unless i give it some throttle. this is an infrequent problem tho - the main problem with my escort is when the engine is cold, it stalls every time i press the clutch in - sometimes i can save it by bumping it, although if this happens at traffic lights, roundabouts etc, I'm stationary by the time it stalls so I have to restart the engine which is most embarrassing as it makes me look like I don't know how to drive without stalling - I've had loads of cars and quite a few escorts but never had this problem before.
Hi, Im haveing the same problem with my ford encore r reg 1.3 model its over revving when im pressing the clutch down so would this be the idle speed control valve on mine aswell? I did take it down to the garage but they could not diagnoise it because it was'nt doing it at that point but dont want to pay out for a new clutch if its not required.

This sounds like the idle speed control valve
