Default Xing: High rev when pressing the clutch during gear change

My car is Santro Xing 2007 model and has clocked 25K kms so far. It is majorly used for city driving alone.

I am facing this strange problem that when ever I press the clutch to change the gears, the engine rev goes up. Is there any good explanation for this? I have tried the following:

-> Petrol: I suspected the petrol and hence tried petrol from different bunks. The problem still persists. I now need to try the Speed version and see if it makes any difference.
-> Took the car to the service station and he said he will fix it. But it is partially fixed. During the day, I have no issues (at least not much). But the moment the headlights are on, I get the same problem.

Hi
The valve near air intake needs to be cleaned, if the problem persists then restart the car. I face the same problem for my zen. Its common for MFPI cars.

You're prob delaying coming off the throttle.

Do a test, when you're cruising, release the throttle completely and then press the clutch and see if the rpm rises.

Is this intake valve or throttle valve?

I had similar issue with Baleno. Later on highway drive, I tried to drive the car in relaxed manner. First go off the throttle completely, then press clutch, gear shift.
Here the rpm would not go up. Before heading to a service center, try to change gear after fully lifting off the throttle.

Generally this problem is faced by many and they end up in service center, come out without any result. My friend who drives Zen also thought there is something wrong, but the problem was that he tried to change quickly in city driving that lead to this rpm rise. IMHO, there is nothing wrong with your car.

Wow! Seems to be a really common problem on Xings. Even ours has it.
In fact there are threads already on similar topics but I can't find them now.

I ave visited the service centres 3-4 times and still am facing the same issue.
Till now they have once changed the cleaned the throttle body, adjusted the clutch settings and have even suggested changing the clutch pedal. However I don't think my clutch has worne out and have not done that.

In my case, the rpm rises on just depressing the clutch fully irrespective of gear changes.

Have you changed your shoes recently? The Xing has a pretty sensitive accelerator and I have seen situations where a change is shoes has led to friends losing estimates of how much to depress the pedal.

Thanks a lot for the many replies.

@Uday, I have got the car only a week back from service and I had asked them explicitly to clean the valves. So dont think it is a problem with the valve.

@Shan2nu,
Normally I let go off the throttle before engaging the clutch. So not sure about that also. The thing is that I face this problem only in the low gears.

@meghan,
It's the same problem for me also. Basically I touch the clutch only when I have to change the gear and hence clubbed the two in the same sentence. The behavior is that I engage the clutch and rev goes up!!! Looks like a behavior issue with Xing

Let me check with a different petrol. Perhaps will go to a Shell dealer and check. I read in one of the threads here that Petrol seems to have an effect on the rev.

Default High rev

Happens to my Santro too. A restart normally helps. I used to think the accelerator was getting caught in my shoes, so i switch off, press the clutch and accelerator a couple of times and switch on. Funny thing is, it works, although I don't know if its the pressing or the restart which fixes it

Add me to this list as well. Have been noticing this problem occuring on and off since the past 4 and half years of my ownership of the car. Car still runs smoothly today even after 57,000 kms

Hi
I have a few questions before giving you some explanation & tips!
Have you used a higher wattage bulb?
If yes then I think it is a cause of concern

Secondly the computer module settings in the car might have been disturbed due to different operating situations (eg. different load given to engine system / electrical load / riding on the clutch etc.)

I heard on radio that a Hyundai Free car care clinic is happening at all dealerships. So why dont you make use of that!

Adios!

I recently bought a used Santro LE (2001 model). The first day of driving was _mostly_ okay until I started driving with A/C when this exact same problem cropped up.

I do see many suggestions from the experts but does anyone know what exactly is the problem and what is the proper fix?
