    Default should i not have done this?????

    a couple of weeks ago ( when the weather was dryer), i gave the v6 a good wash, dry, polish etc, decided to clean all the crap from under the bonnet, did all around the wings and under the bonnet.
    i also had a great idea of spraying a de-greaser all over the engine bay and washed it off with my jet wash........
    since then, occaisionaly when i first start my car, it revs at approx 850 rpm (v6 diedel - usually 600 ish) if i press the loud peddle, no change in revs.this will last for about 30 seconds -
    any ideas anyone??????

    possibly soaked the airflow meter mate...whip it off and give it a good douce in contact cleaner or other moisture repelent.

    Hope its something simple, probably water somewhere if you were stupid enough to pressure wash it without protecting the electrics. If its something expensive, prepare for it to be very expensive.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
