Zetec 1.25 - Grease_monkey
When i start my car from cold it revs up to just over 2000rpm then slowly drops down to above 1000rpm. Surely this can't be right. any suggestions?

Probably....I will check the next 1.25 I see......but I don't always get to see them cold.

Sounds a little high to me, but I wouldn't take the tachometer as gospel, anyway.

Cheers DL. A engine starting up from cold i know will rev alittle bit but surely not as much as mine does. I dont want it doing this when it is for example -10 during winter and there is no oil in the oil galleries because the engine has not been used.

IIRC, there's a previous thread on this problem. Can't find it at the moment though, but from vague memory the ECU just needed a software upgrade from Ford.

Thanks Dave but how much is a ECU software upgrade?
