Question 06 vue ecotec

my dealer can't seem to fix my problem.my 2006 vue 5 speed mtm ecotec has this problem.when shifting,as I put the clutch in,the idle goes up,instead of down.any ideas? I work at a Chevy dealer,so I can get things fixed,if I just have an idea of what is wrong.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

How much does it go up by?

If it just goes up by a little or stays more or less constant- that's normal. Welcome to the wonderful world of "throttle by wire". And I think there is actually some benefit to having the revs stay high between shifts.

My ION did it too. Yep, one of the "benefits" of throttle by wire.

I simply got used to it.

2003 VUE 2.2L
Default Re: 06 vue ecotec

Has it always been like that since day one? or is it worse now?

Ie: when in park, and you push the clutch in to get it into drive (or reverse) does the RPM's go up? if so to what level?

Sometimes I wish mine had a bit more idle than it does after driving it.

When parked for a long time, and I start it up, I can get it into 1st gear without touching the gas pedal (even up a incline)... but after driving for for a bit, and I try to do that, it will chuggle and pretty much stall if no gas is applied via the pedal.

I remember reading something about it being beneficial for the emissions control system, but I could be wrong. Definitely an effect of electronic throttle control.

I let off the gas,push in the clutch,it spikes up 800-1000 rpm,then goes down.worst between 2-3,and 3-4th.

2006 VUE 2.2L
Default Re: 06 vue ecotec

I've had a hard time getting used to it. But I now have to let off the gas almost a full second before pushing the clutch in to not have the effect you are seeing. It sucks in Jersey traffic because you damn near get rear-ended going from 1st to 2nd because you have to let off the gas for so long.

I want my wire back GM. I can live without cruise control and my emissions might be a little better if I weren't wasting so much fuel between shifts...

James, you're not letting your motor warm up sufficiently after being "parked for a long time". I don't move my VUE until the RPM's are under 1K (usually takes about a minute after start-up). When the motor is cold, turning your key and immediately taking off is not healthy for your motor. Let that puppy warm up a bit and let the RPM's come down before you take off.
