First of all if you have over 60,000 miles the car is asking you for a tuneup but take it to auto zone and they will put it on the tested for free so you know what you are dealing with.

Why does my rpm gage bounce when i push my clutch in?

May be an iac motor slow to react to change in load. RPM will change when shifting or engaging/disengaging clutch. Does not sound serious yet ... If you can, compare with similar vehicle and see it it does the same.

The problem was not a problem at all, apparently it was the fact that when my vehicle was parked in the driveway which is on a bit of a slope. That caused the fuel to shift in the tank causing my problem. When I backed the vehicle out of the driveway and got on level ground the problem corrected itself and everything was fine. This is the only time I have ever had this problem since I've gotten the car. Also another indication I did'nt catch initially was that the low fuel light came on when I tried to start the vehicle earlier.
