    is there something wrong with my 06 wrx?

    i posted this on another thread too but i think this is a better place to post this thread.

    i have a 06 wrx sedan with 800 miles.

    When i am driving around 3500 rpm and depress the clutch, the tach needle drops down like normal and bounces back up to about 1200-1500 rpm, then back down to normal idle speed.

    If I am driving at lower rpm's and depress the clutch, the needle will only bounce back up alittle (maybe bounce up 200 rpm and fall back down to normal idle speed).

    is this normal, or maybe just happens during the break in period?

    thanks for your help

    Like I said in your first thread, the second issue you posted is normal. As for the first one my 06 never does this after it's warmed up........oh and this thread will get far less traffic in this forum then the first one.

    thanks for the reply 302.
    the first issue and second issues are kind of the same. Just when I drive at higher rpms the needle will bounce higher back up. if i drive at lower rpms, the tach needle will not bounce back up at all or maybe just alittle.

    I also have this other problem with my 06. i can hear the rear brakes being applied when i hit the brakes. does anyone else hear this? it can only be hear when it is really quite out (like at night). i took it in for service for the brakes and when they went for a test drive, they could not hear it since there was so much noise out. they said to drive it for a while since there was some rust on the brake disc. They said that could be causing the noise when braking and shoould go away.

    thanks for the help =)

    Sounds normal to me.

    Yeah, it's normal for all post 04 wrx's to jump rpm when the clutch is pressed.

    As for the rear brakes, I can hear mine after it sits for a few days or after I wash it. The rotors rust up pretty quickly, but after you press the brakes a few times it should be gone and it should be back to normal.

    i know how to make this issue happen every time now.

    when i am driving and depress the clutch, if i leave the car in gear, the tach needle will come down like normal to idle speed. If I depress the cluch and put it to nuetral before the tach needle drops down, the tach needle will go down like normal but then bounce back up to 1250rpm, then go down to normal idle speed.

    can any else test this with their car to see if the same thing happens?

    i have an 06 sedan.

    thanks =)

    i hope my car is not messed up
