2.0 TS Engine Self Revving

Only had my TS a couple of days, just noticed today that when clutch is pressed in and car is moving the revs 'blip' between 800 and 1500 - though when I stop it idles perfectly? The car runs great and goes really well, just a bit confused

Re: 2.0 TS Engine Self Revving

If it was the MAF would the idle when stationary also not be affected - I don't how moving at 10mph would make a difference?

Re: 2.0 TS Engine Self Revving

i would suggest a trottle clean and reset via a scanner..

if that doesnt work replace your trottle actuator and do a reset via a scanner.

Re: 2.0 TS Engine Self Revving

My 2 litre TS used to wobble its revs between 800 and 1300 when dipping the clutch as I was coming to a stop.
If I then blipped the throttle it then used to settle down just below 1000.
I cleaned the throttle body with an old hanky and some carb cleaner as was rather black which helped.
I did mostly town commuting and the car had been reprogrammed which probably didn't help.

Re: 2.0 TS Engine Self Revving

Yep, carb cleaner all over the throttle butterfly and some gentle cleaning is probably all you need.

have a search for throttle body cleaning, there are loads of posts (although oddly not many recently).
