Hi folks – thanks for providing this forum. I've just bought a 2002 Focus 1.8 turbo diesel (Duratech) and, after a BMW M3 believe it or not, I really like it :D But… when I change gear, the engine races briefly before dying – just to be clear, I accelerate up to 2000 or 3000 or so, and as I lift the throttle and depress the clutch, it's as if I’d left my foot on the throttle briefly, as the engine does a little rev. Then it dies in time for me to let the clutch out again. All very quick, but very noticeable and moderately annoying. I'm just wondering if this is a known issue, or if you think there's something wrong with mine? Occasionally it's hard to start when cold, if that might be relevant. Any help much appreciated.
