landrover td5,(2006)defender when changing gear & depressing the clutch the engine carries on reving for a split second before before the revs drop (if it was a mechanical accelorator you would think it was sticking).Nothing shows up as a fault on diagnosis,any ideas?
Hello I'd suggest checking the state of the clutch position switchthats located in the drivers footwell at the top of the pedalthis sends a signal to the ECU to help control the fuellingits a simple 2 wire device so a regular multimeter will do the trick to check its workign as it should
