Hey guys, I recently had the clutch replaced in my manual transmission car and I don’t know if I am overthinking this or what but I never noticed this until now.
Whenever I am about to stop in traffic, if I put the gear to neutral I can see the engine’s rpm hovering around 1080’s rpms, and it only drops to the “idle range” of 700 - 800 rpm if I stop the car completely. I did a test going downhill in neutral and I can see the engine rpms going up a little bit if I let the brakes go. I plugged my obd scanner and used OBD doctor on my phone to keep track of the rpm graph. Here is a pic… you can see the rpms going 1000’s steady and then dropping abruptly when I completely stop the vehicle.
So, is this normal? Thanks.
