Hi my name is ***** ***** am here to assist you Today what happens in reverse does it jump out of gear.
Can you feel the ABS pump working.
A strange noise from the engine bay.
That will be the ABS pump check the ABS pick up rings on the drive shafts see image.
I see you have another issue / question regarding low RPMs is this issue related to the question we are discussing now.
Does the engine warning light come on see image.
Could be a throttle body issue but you need to check for air / vacuum leaks first.
Is that you in reverse just lifting the clutch up and not touching the accelerator pedal.
And if you are in stop start traffic you do the same just use the clutch to slowly move forward.
Other than that are the RPMs fine.
The revs drop as you are putting load on the engine that is normal.
Are you understanding the load you are putting on the engine as you ride the clutch in traffic / reverse just normal conditions.
If you need me just get back to me regards Gavin.
It is not a problem it is normal the smaller the engine the bigger the effect on RPMs in stop / start traffic / reverse.
You might prefer an automatic if it is a worry to you.
I am not saying anything about your clutch control the RPMs going down that is normal as the engine is going under load as you crawl along in stop / start traffic or in reverse.
