Driving back from work this morning and the car decided that the revs were not high enough whilst I was in second gear so pumped 'em up to about 3000
. Anyway, I pulled over and as I was doing so the revs shot up to over 4000 and stayed there
, good job I'm calm in a situation like that otherwise I would have ended up rear ending someone elses pride and joy
You all know the story so far with the revs being erractic and all so I wondered whether these high revs holding there until I switched the ignition off would point in the direction of something more specific or are we still looking at "could be anything"
Took me a good 15 seconds to start the car again but then she ran as she has been for the past couple of months with just the normal ups and downs in the revs.
I've got an diagnostics scanner coming tomorrow, hopefully, but would like some further input before then if at all possible.
Maybe one last thing to point out is that I seem to be getting a hell of a lot of output from the exhaust - white though, not black! I would assume that if the car was overfuelling then this would be rather blacker than normal, or am I wrong
PS: Bet your bottom dollar the scanner either doesn't work on my car or it doens't read any faults
