engine runs fast slowing down

Asked by Aug 05, 2009 at 08:25 AM about the 1999 Ford Ka

Question type: Maintenance & Repair


1 Answer

That is actually the transmission downshifting to a lower gear, which causes the RPMs to jump up. Nothing you can likely do about it since the transmission control module dictates the shift logic to the transmission. Buy a manual car next time.
