Ford Escort 1.3 Encore

Hi all and thanks for letting me join the forum,
I own a 1.3 Ford Escort Encore, at the moment it is over reving when i slow down after i have been driving for a while , when you pull up you can hear the engine reving up then lowering back down again fuel is not lasting as long as it should I could really do with some help. I have checked the basics like air and oil filters plus spark plugs and all look ok.

Thanking you in advance Ronnie.

Re: Ford Escort 1.3 Encore

Hi
1.3 engines are known to have TPS and wiring loom problems that cause the rpms to stay high between gearchanges. Sometimes this won't even log a code (unless the TPS is faulty). Test your TPS and if it's good look for high resistance in the connectors between TPS and PCM. Hope this helps, cheers
