yes i know, what a stupid idiotic thing to do, and now i seem to have killed my car... i am gutted!!!
i jet washed the engine bay... i know.. it was stupid and i deserve a slap.
The problem i have is after i did it, the revs shot to red line.. i switched off the engine and re started it. the revs were still high until i put my foot on the clutch or the brake and they dropped to 800rpm, taking my foot off either they red lined again.
I dried out all i could see, sensor wise and noticed that the "motor system control failure " sign came on the dash.
i re started the car and the revs seemed to be near normal although the warnig was still on. i took it for a drive and it felt like a 1.1 fiesta. when i got home it returned to erratic and dying a death. it seems when its starting from cold the revs go high till the choke goes off, and then the accelerator does not do a thing!!
i know i have done something serious, or maybe you good people might know if it is minor ( i doubt it is) i am gutted gutted gutted.. can anyone please help
