Not a problem as such(I think) but I've noticed that when pulling to a stop with the clutch depressed, sometimes (not always)the tachometer 'pulses' from 750 rpm to 1000rpm.

Has anyone else noticed this happening, like I mentioned, the car brakes fine and doesn't have any problems but I've never had a car that has done this before!!

Yeah noticed this a few times on mine, only when it's cold I think, and assumed it was down to the tuning box I am running.....

My old Fabia used to do the same with a tuning box applied...

Mine too!!!!! seems to me to be that its like it auto chokes? also tends to hold the revs up as well, ie when you are driving at say 2000rpm, and you put in the clutch, the revs 'hang' around 1200 rpm as if its expecting a gear change.

yeah, its all jiggery pokery by ford, you have the anti stall that ups the juice when you are reversing or something like that, and i'm sure i read that it does something with the fuelling when you clutch-in to help give smoother gear changes!!

I remember reading somewhere that they had done something on more recent cars re the revs between the gears to give the Dual mass flywheel an easier time.
