You were a bit vague in your problem ( now it does rev at all while idlling) Did you mean it doesn't rev at all now, Answer: 1st check all vacuum hoses from brake booster to carby if one of these has come off it will cause it to rev high, Do this before playing with your choke or carby. also check to see if the Carby is bolted onto the manifold tightly as they can rattle loose causing a vacuum leak there. Have you touched anything before this problem occured?

My choke light stays on my 84 pontiac trans am. Why does this occurr and how can i fix this problem?


I bevieve that year is 305 or 350 with Throttle body injection so remove air cleaner cover start car allow to warm up then see if plate below main injector opens when engine is revved ..if it does then be sure it is partially open at idle .. check wiring underside of air cleaner / loose / heat damaged -----Or if Aftermarket air cleaner then unplugged wires from factory must be looped to create all ok signal .....The Throttle plate at base of unit or old style carb can wear creating unstable idle or choke light signal due to inconsistant air flow ..

My 2001 ford escape suv doesn't go more than 40 miles p.h. when i mean to go faster


Is the engine revving high at 40mph? If so then chances are the trans has not shifted. Is engine very sluggish, or won't rev high, possibly with a hissing sound? If so then you may have a restricted exhaust system.

My Ford Mustang 2002 Idles high at start up. Why does it do that? It even idles high in gear when i am not pressing the gas and the idling is causing it to speed up more on its own when Im not pressing...


Hello and welcome to FixYa!

All EFI (electronic fuel injection) engines idles high during start ups. It serves like an auto choke to regulate the vacuum supply and most of all to lessen the wear and tear of the engine. Please drive the car only when it reaches the normal operating temp.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Hey


The limiter in which you are referring to is in the trans. I really don't know how to remove it. I take all my internal trans work to my tranny shop. I just never had a reason to learn how to build transmissions. I really wished I could be of more assistance.
