Just noticed this issue two nights ago on the way home and wondered if if it's something I should get looked at. I drive a Mk3 Mondeo, 2004, Petrol 1.8 with 60k on the clock. After changing gear, my rev counter will sit at 1.5k revs, sometimes 2k revs, before settling down to the normal idle (just under 1k) after a couple seconds. So when I pull up to a pedestrian crossing, I put the car in first and keep the clutch in, the engine revs up (scared an old lady this afternoon!), but it also happens when I put the car in neutral. Even when I'm tootling along and changing up or down, it will head for 1.5 or 2 when I push the clutch in, rather than 1k like normal. A week ago my clutch started squeaking intermittently. Related, or just a coincidental squeaky pedal? I'm fairly inept when it comes to cars (I can change tyres and fluids - I'm ok with DIY, just never done much with my cars) so curious as to whether it's something I can take a look at, or should I take it along to the local mechanic (in which case having an idea what the problem is might help me not get ripped off)? Thanks for any advice you can offer.
