Clutch Question?!

it seems when im pushing in the clutch to change gears around 2k to 2 1/2K itll rev right above 3k everytime without even touching the gas yet but when i change around 3k itll rev slightly above 3k it only does this when im changing gears but not if im idle and press in the clutch! any ideas?? thanks!

are you sure your timing it right aka you take your foot off completely before you press clutch?

My Car does the same thing. first i thought it was the clutch going bad but its not. i beleive its probably has something to do with inertia of the flywheel.. but not sure.

hmmmm...you go off the gas on shifts right?...like is normally done just cruising? maybe you are disengaging your clutch faster than you are letting off the gas. could be timing. This certainly doesn't happen to me esp since I have a lw fw and when I let off the gas my rpms want to drop fast.

I get my kicks on EC.

I do it and so does the rest of my family, which most are truck drivers. i mean you save the clutch and less stress on the engine i guess.
