Rpm sticking

Have a manual 01 v6 and I know that my throw out bearing is going bad, but when I push in the clutch and coast my rpms jump up to like 2,500 or 3,000 and stays until I come to almost a complete stop, then it drops to like 1,000. Could it be the clutch? Or my dads friend said something about a vacuum leak, someone helpp pleaseee.

Its easier and cheaper to check for a vacuum leak, I'd start there first.

Sounds like a vacume leak but ive seen this happen with an exhaust leak as well something about the back pressure. Do u smell exhaust in the car? If not id start checking ur vacume lines. If so trace ur exhaust and look for damage or cracks or holes. Its prolly vacume though.

Re: Rpm sticking

Nope it has to do with your IAC. I would get a restrictor plate or make one and bolt that baby on. It's not uncommon for the 5-speeds to do this. I had the same thing on my mustang till i made my restrictor plate. Worked like a champ.
