Mine is doing exactly the same thing. Is your check engine light on? Mine is constantly. What I have discovered is:

1. One of my Oxygen sensors is bad (bank 1 sensor 2, heater circuit) whatever that means. That's what the code is in the computer. 2. It does not shift into overdrive. Make sure the overdrive switch is on. If it is on, then there may be something wrong with your transmission. My overdrive switch is probably bad, because not knowing any better, I used to sit at red lights and flick it on and off repeatedly, very fast, not realizing that could ruin the switch. So now it never goes into overdrive, but the weird thing is, the dashboard light that says "O/D off" never lights up, and I can't figure that one out.

I ordered an OBD-2 scanner off of eBay to keep an eye on the codes for the check engine light. Any time they've ever been checked, they've always said it's because of the Oxygen sensor. It's $50 for me to get the codes checked, but I bought a scanner off eBay for $20. I also ordered the actual shop manuals off eBay as well. A little more expensive, but i think they will be worth it.

So my advice is if the Check Engine light is on, get the codes checked, but if it's the same problem as mine, it's just not going into overdrive.

Hope this helps.

bank 1 sensor 2 is the oxy sensor located on the exhaust pipe under the car just past the engine is fairly esy to change yourself

Most likely revving due to a dirty/clogged air filter.

park it in the garage until you work out what problem you have

The antipollution filter on a 207 peugeot comes as an indicator that the car has to be cleaned by reving it.

how do you fix constant reving on a ford transit 2003

Slipping, over reving, sounds like rocks in the trans.

throttle plate stuck, accelerator cable binding, vacuum leak, tps malfunctioning.

its called a rev limiter. It keeps the engine from over reving and breaking.

User Avatar

Assuming you have an automatic, suspect low trans fluid level. If it is a standard, the clutch is slipping.

I'm not sure what you mean by "Hard" but if it's reving high adjust your idiling screw.

The anti-pollution fault appears in peugeot 207 because it implies that the car has to be cleaned by reving it.

under normal operation, and without lugging or over reving engine, 30-40 mph

User Avatar

Can be a multitude of things. First see if its from inside the engine bay and occurs while in neutral reving the engine. From there check your headlight assembly.

Most of them, the consumers of so called "pocket rockets" like the high reving & sound a two stroke makes, especially as they wind it out the freeway.

Check your EGR valve..if its the XUD9TE engine then it is a green clip to the left of the battery

If a Honda Civic is over revving than there may be a problem with the ECU. One of the functions of the ECU is to prevent the engine from over revving.
