    over reving

    my car was revving to about 3000 revs when i put the clutch in to change gear. my foot wasnt touching the accelerator at all before you ask and the accelerator cable seemed fine under the bonnet.

    what could have caused this problem? it isnt doing this now. could it be the petrol. I put in high octaine unleadded.

    cheers

    dont know exactly how it works but this can sometimes be the cause.
