High REV problem

Hello all!

Thanks to all who helped with the p/s problem. That has been fixed. It was the idler pulley (bearing had ceased).

NOW - the car runs fine EXCEPT whilst idling - revving at high RPM (around 1200-1500) and takes a long time to come back to the normal mark (600rpm etc). AND while engaging clutch during driving, the rev meter (tach) goes up again....
its worse coming to the lights, engaging in first gear and the needle just shooots up (the tach).
p.s. throttle cable is new.

Any suggestions? Please help
Many thanks.

That could be a variety of problems, possibly it the throttle body is getting stuck open then it eventually closes? that or maybe the automatic choke is a bit dodgy and needs to be fixed/replaced

correct me if I am wrong but if the O2 sensor is dodgy/fouled carboned that apparently causes the idle to return very slowly....hope you find out..good luck sounds a bit scarey.

Mine used to do the same and this is a fairly commen problem with EA's, two things to check out, your TPS and ur ISC.

My throttle cable was stuffed so I replaced that, reset the computer, did the learn throttle position procedure and she was fine again, problem has never come back since which has been at least 2 years

Thumbs up Many thanks

Hi guys,

Thanks to everyone who helped/suggested about the high revving problem.
Its fixed now - i just hope it stays that way.
I reset the computer and let it idle for ten minutes and then drove around the block.
Its seems fine now - idling at around the 600mark.

thanks once again!
have a good one.

hello

lol rollin, i just found that mine works the other way. If I need to get away from the holden crapadores or etc, and i pust it a li'l you know, it starts revving high after. But when I drive it like a grandma, she's fine.
I guess a problem that needs attention.
soon.
see ya.
