Hi
Am I right that the TDCI has a sensor linked to the clutch in order to keep the revs up whilst there is a gear change?
How can you tell if it is working? With my 04 TDCI the revs seem to drop straight away to idle everytime the cluch is pressed. If this sensor exists, should there be a short period of time when the revs are held above idle whilst the gear change takes place? :innocent:

According to the Haynes Manual, the amount of fuel leaving the injectors is momentarily reduced when the clutch is disengaged.
They reackon this gives a smoother gearchange.
