Question about 1998 Ford Escort

1 Answer

Intermittent high revving!

When i am going along or at idle, my car has started to rev really high. I might be idle and it sits for a while then the revs go up on their own to about 3000 revs! This also happens when I am driving along. I should be at 1500 revs at 30-40 mph but it goes higher into the 3000's, so i am driving sometimes just using my brake, it goes along on its own! Please help!

I have a citroen xsara 1.4 revving to high in idol mode how do i adjust revs


AT IDLE, IT SHOULD ONLY BE APPROX 650 TO 750 RPMS. I WOULD HAVE IT SCANNED WITH A GOOD SCAN TOOL, NOT ONE OF THOSE CHEAP ONES, USUALLY AUTOZONE OR ADVANCE WILL SCAN YOURS FOR NO CHARGE, BUT IT VERY WELL SOUNDS LIKE IT MAY BE THE IDLE AIR CONTROL VALVE, AS THATS ONE OF THEIR SYMTOMS THAT HAPPENS WHEN THEY GO BAD, ALSO COULD BE A MASS AIR SENSOR, BUT A GOOD SCAN TOOL, SHOULD SHOW WHAT THE PROBLEM REALLY IS.....

My 1992 Chevy Blazer S 10 is revving really high when it starts


i have an s10 that would rev up high. i hooked up my scanner and it didn't give me much information, so i started researching. it took a while. i got my manual out and looked up all of the sensors in the fuel system. i even paid some web site $10 for help {wasred my $10} and they were no help. so i researched all of the sensors and found out their symptoms when they malfunctioned. the culprit turned out to be my water temp sensor. here is how it works, when you first start your engine the water is cold, the sensor sends out the information to the brain [warm me up] so your engine idles high to help reach operating temp quicker. when the sensor malfunctions it will send the wrong info to the brain [i'm cold] so the brain revs up the engine in an effort to get warm .i replaced the water temp sensor and the engine is back to normal.
