    Default Ford Ka

    Just looking for some advice. My wife is in the process of acquiring a Ka from a friend. It's a v reg 1.3. The car only has 42k on the clock and is in good condition. New tyres new exhaust. At £170 it's a steal.

    The only issue with it is that after driving a while when changing gears rather than the revs dropping it seems to rev right up but is fine in gear. Apparently it's been in a couple of times and they can find anything. Just wondering if anyone had any ideas what it might be. My car experience to date has been diesels so petrol engines will be a new experience.

    Cheers

    Is the parked idle speed ok? I don't know if its got similar systems, but on my old fiesta, the power steering pressure sensor wiring had broken, which caused it to over idle alot whilst driving (ie when changing gear) and cause the standing idle to be raised by about 100 - 200 rpm

    Problem:
    Engine idle speed high during gear changes
    Impression of sticking throttle

    Cause:
    Incorrect throttle position (TP) sensor signal due to poor multi-plug connection

    Remedy:

    the killer on low milage cars is lack of servicing, change the plugs and oil & filter ASAP if I were your, plugs can end up snapping in the block if left for years.

    Rear subframe bushes go, if they have its about £230 to have them changed iirc.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Poke round the fuel filler, the sills, the A pillars, intact anywhere metallic before spending any money! Soak the plugs in wd40, the endure E's like to snap them off. Probably the throttle body gummed to b*ggery however.

    Finally picked up one of these today. Hopefully fit it tomorrow.

    3 wires and a plug = £53 hope it does the trick. Lol
