Question about 1978 Ford Granada
Hi i have a 53 reg seat alhambra 1.9 tdi pd s. recently the car has began to rev itself. there are no lights coming up on dash, have tryed a scan tool which returned no faults. it will rev itself and as i accelerate and then come off the gas they will still climb sharply and drop themselves it will do this and then stop doing it by itself intermittantly, also ive noticed the temp gauge isnt functioning properly aswell, maybe its linked? for example even when the car has reached optimum temp the guage will still sometimes show its still cold but then again it too will intermittantly go up and down by itself. im at a loss please help me someone!!!!

pull the instrument cluster out and check the printed circuit and connector to it from harness, plug it in and out three or four times, this may cure the problem.

SOURCE: Revvs itself up for no reason
mmm spay some flammable liquid around the inlet manifold whilst its running see if it revs up ..if it does may be an air leak. note dont spay near air filter..

SOURCE: power loss and black smoke?
I had a similar issue to this after I got in a VERY small fender bender (literally) in an 87 Turbo Supra. In my case, my pasenger fender got pushed in JUST enough to crack a charge pipe and cause a boost leak.
Basically, what was happening was the turbo would spool and build boost, the mass fair flow sensor would read all this air coming in and tell the ECU to dial up the the appropriate amount of fuel. When the air reached the cracks in the charge pipe, it would escape out of them. Thus there was a much lower air-to-fuel ratio, causing less fuel to combust, which lead to power loss and black smoke out of the exhaust.
My guess is either an oxygen sensor, or more likely a boost leak.
Good luck mate.
