Clutch issues?

Recommended Posts

Hi - recently bought a focus estate and was told it had a recent new clutch, there wasn't any paperwork but I know the mechanic who did the job and he said it was on his time cash job so that was why.

Anyway, it stalled a lot when pulling away in first but he assured me that was just due to it being new and it would bed in. So 4 months later and the stalling has stopped but I've now noticed a real stutter/wobble at the high rev end of each gear and that when I take my foot off the accelerator the revs dont drop immediately (this is when i'm changing gear or when i'm coming to a stop) - is this a clutch issue?

Cheers

No it's not the clutch, I have the same experience, the accelerator is not mechanical but electrical operated, and reacts a bit late to the release of the accelerator.

It doesn't actually react late. The throttle is programmed to close slowly to reduce emissions. In the old days with cable-operated throttles a damper was fitted to slow down the butterfly closing for this purpose.
