Escort engine revs high until stopped. - car killer
I have an M-reg ford escort 1.3 and about 2 weeks ago it developed a problem. The engine revs too high until the car has come to a complete stop for about 3 seconds. Even if the car is just rolling slightly in netural or clutch in it will rev to about 3,000 revs. It keeps reving even when the car has stoped but after about 3 seconds it is ok. This never happen before i had a new battery put in but straight after the new battery this problem started. Could this problem be connected to the battery or is it just a coincidence. Any help on this would be appreciated.

Not an uncommon fault. Disconnect the battery for a couple of hours then reconnect and start engine WITHOUT TOUCHING THE THROTTLE. Let it tick over UNMOLESTED for about ten minutes then take it for a run for about 15-20 miles. Should settle down to normal speed then. If not get a diagnostic check done.
