Holding the pedal, but revs fluctuate
I asked this before and got no response. Hopefully I explain it better this time.
When the car is not in gear, if you hold the accelerator at a certain point, the revs should stay constant, correct ?
Well mine do except for if I try to hold the revs at around 1800. Then every 2 or 3 seconds the revs dip as low as 1400 then struggle back up to 1800, then dip again ad nauseum. It happens, as I say, from anywhere around 1700 to 2000 rpm. It stops happening at higher revs.
Is this some kind of blockage or has anyone else experienced anything like it. It does happen when the car is moving too, she shudders at that rev.
It is more of a worry than an inconveniance, and it has been happening for ages now without any dire consequences, but I would like to get it fixed if someone out there knows it's a simple job.
Any feedback muchly appreciated.
A labour of love or a love of labour ?
