Alright bringing this thread back from the dead a bit. I replaced my leaky clutch master cylinder last weekend ( which is leaking again so I have to replace it again, great). Now when I press in the clutch or drop into neutral, the rpms surge for about five seconds before dropping down to regular idle.

Since I had to move the hose hooking the TB to the air box, could I have cracked the hose that leads from to the intake manifold? Not sure what else was causing it. I thought maybe I didn't bleed the clutch enough, but that seems unrelated and all the gears shift smoothly with no problems. Any thoughts?

Poked around a bit tonight and found that the TPS was a little loose on the TB. Think that could be it?

If you get a tune from Tom doesnt the "ECU learning" thing get turned off?

I just started having issues after changing my battery also, it was going on 5 years and before i started having any issues i just replaced it because i know these cars are bad for burning up alternators.

I thought my IAC was causing problems so i unhooked it but i still had issues. It wouldnt start correctly when it was cold but with it unhooked the idle wouldnt jump around like it had been.

I have an AEM A/F gauge installed in my exhaust and i notice when the car revs up during idle my gauge is showing lean. It goes from normal where it bounces around 14.7 down to around 12

Ive cleaned my IAC, MAF, and the Throttle body. First was the IAC then put it back in but i never thought about the gunk running down into the IAC i may need to check it again.

I wonder about the TPS though, how long do those things go before they need cleaned or replaced?
