Ford Fiesta Encore 1.3L - over revving - Moby
Hi all

My missus has a Ford Fiesta Encore 1.3L (1998) that has been over-revving whilst depressing the clutch. This problem happens more often than not, occurring both during hard acceleration through the gears and braking from speed when approaching roundabouts. The over-revving engine can usually be brought back down to lower revs by tapping the accelerator.

We had the opposite problem around 12 months ago - in this instance we had to buy a new ISCV (cleaning the old one didnt solve the problem).

My question is this; is it likely to be the same problem, or could it be something else, maybe the throttle position sensor? Maybe a good clean of the ISCV will solve the problem?

I will be getting may hands dirty tomorrow morning on my day off... any advice before then would be most appreciated!

Thanks in advance,
M o b y

Quick forum search reveals:-

Some of these threads relate to other Ford engines, but I imagine it's a common fault.
