[Engine] engine "racing"
#1
Hi all, having a slight problem with my XTR. After accelerating quite hard when I take my foot off the accelerator the engine seems to keep working at high revs, ie doesn't respond to the fact I have taken my foot off the gas. It only lasts a few seconds but the car is nearly 3 years old so if there is a serious problem or something likely to get worse I would like to get it sorted whilst still under warranty, assuming it would be covered.

Anyone come across this before/any ideas. Thanks in anticipation.

Potentially this is a serious safety hazard. Sounds as if the throttle cable/linkage is sticking. I would get it looked at asap. :eek:

Thanks chaps, as an old codger who would like to continue getting older I will get this looked at asap.

Cheers.
