Can anyone give me a starting point to diagnose my baby? I've recently
taken on the responsibility of doing all of the repair work myself. I've
had a couple of successes, but they were small jobs. Now I fear something
more complex is afoot and I don't want to start tearing it apart until I
know where to begin.
I have 93 Escort LX - 5 speed - 1.9L with a slight problem. After traveling
70MPH for more than a few minutes, I exit the interstate and come to a stop
light / sign. With the clutch all the way to the floor and /
or the stick
in neutral, and no foot on the gas, my engine revs back up to 2-3K rpm. I
can put it in gear again and continue driving at lower speeds, but with the
revs kicking back up whenever I push the clutch in. If I turn the car off
for a while (go into a store), the problem goes away.
Thanks to anyone with some help!
