Your clutch release mechanism is failing,,take it to a repair shop and have it looked at.
If the system fails all together while driving it could cause you grief.

Have you done anything to it. When was the last tuneup. And why the hell are you racing the engine to 5k. That's just wrong. It should idle around 800

Why does my car sometimes idle high with the clutch engaged but return to normal when vehicle comes to a stop?


The TPS can play funny tricks like this. Also sounds like a throtle linkage problem as well. Do u mean disengaged rather than engaged?

Hi, I have a 1999 Chico/Citi Golf. The revs stay above 1000 and do not want to drop, I do not even have to pull the choke out. How do I get my revs to drop back to 1000? It use to Idle just below 1000,...


Check that the choke accelerated idle cam is not stuck. Check that the throttle cable has not dislodged and the outer casing is riding on the bracket. Check that the throttle linkages are free and the throttle returns to the idle adjustment stop. If all these are correct, adjust the idle adjustment to obtain the correct idle speed. 700 - 800 rpm is about the right speed.

98 accent loses engine revs when clutch pressed


I think you will find the clutch plate needs replacing. Your symptoms sound like a slipping clutch. You will need to take it to a mechanic, this is not a job for a handy man.

Runs erratically


The idle air valve (located below the throttle body) provides the control for constant idle speed. In order to set the correct air valve opening to achieve constant idle speed, the fuel injection control unit uses information from the air mass meter, throttle valve switch and the ignition control unit (RPM signal) to regulate the output current to the idle air valve. This means that the idle valve is not affected by air leaks or a jammed throttle valve.
