High Revs?

Recommended Posts

For the last couple of weeks my 2009 diesel Verso has been revving whilst stationary at 1200 rather than the usual 900. Along with this has also been a marked increase in fuel consumption by about 10%.

Today, with temperatures a little higher it is back to normal. I've never found this problem with other diesel cars, so is it a fault or typical of this model?

Anyone out there experienced the same problem?

It's normal, it's to get the engine up to operating temperature quicker. If you turn off the heating inside the car it won't do it.

In mine it seems to be linked to the aircon rather than the heating.

I very rarely use the aircon, if I turn the temp down the revs drop back to normal.
