Excessive revving when clutch peddle is de-pressed

Hi all, I have got a Focus and when driving car is great but as soon as I depress the clutch the revs go sky high 4000ish RPM ! I've taken off the inlet manifold cleaned put back with new gaskets including the throttle body, replace the pipes, replaced the idle control valve, speedometer sensor, throttle position sensor, re-placed the clutch switch, unpluged all the electrical conectors and re-fitted and cleaned all 6 earth points on the engine and still this has not worked Ahhhhhhh Any help will be welcome.:)

When i push in the clutch,the engine revs up.


If I am hearing you right, the engine revs ONLY when the clutch is depressed?
I would have to doubt that is what is really happening, tho. Is it possible that the engine is revving from the time that you start it, until the time that you shut it off?
This would be more likely, as depressing the clutch doesn't really have any effect on the engine, other than dis-engaging the drive-line...
IF it is revving at start up, see if it isn't only 'idling down' when the weight of the vehicle puts a load on the motor. In other words, does it idle down, or does it only SEEM like it is, because now it's pulling the car? Do you have to give it gas to go on a flat surface? If not, then it's still revving.
Then, if you decide that it's revving ALL the time, you will need to check it for vacuum-leaks or mis-adjusted linkages, or carburetor (throttle body, if it is injected).
Do yourself a favor and buy a Chilton or Haynes manual for your vehicle (at most any auto parts store), if you plan to keep it for a while. They will generally have troubleshooting sections, to help you eliminate variables until you find the actual issue. It's the best $20 you can spend!

Me and a mate have been trying to bleed my clutch on my 80 series for 5 hrs and carnt get anywhere. What the hell am I doing wrong? I can do everythingt else other then 1 of the simplist job


Just follow the procedure in the right order. Fill the clutch reservoir on the master cylinder to the max and leave the lid loose. Fit a transparent plastic pipe on the bleed nipple on the clutch slave cylinder bleed nipple. Put the other end of the pipe into a jar to catch the waste fluid. Put some thick grease around the base threads of the bleed nipple, this stops air being sucked in via the threads whne the nipple is slackened off. Loosen the bleed nipple by 1/3 of a turn. Have your mate slowly depress the clutch peddle. When he has reached maximum travel have him hold it there while you turn the bleed nipple a third turn back to tight. Have your mate release the clutch peddle, clutch fluid from the master reservoir should now fill the the master cylinder. Have you mate press the peddle a quarter way and then release the bleed nipple a 1/3 of a turn. Have your mate depress the clutch peddle all the way to maximum travel. Again tighten off the bleed nipple before releasing the clutch peddle. Keep doing this process until no more air bubbles can be seen in the fluid in the pipe attached to the bled nipple. Every four cycles or so check on the fluid level in the master reservoir and keep topped up with fresh fluid. When everything completed tighten the bleed nipple, it is not necessary to tighten the hell out of it as at some point you may need to do this again. Wipe everything down pump the clutch peddle a few times to be sure of correct operation and no leaks.

No sorry to be the bearer of bad news but i think the fingers on the clutch are worn to excess and when the clutch is depressed fully the bearing is going through the fingers of the clutch causing the noise you can hear .Eventualy it will need a new clutch which is not expensive if you do it yourself
