Manual Honda Accord RPM jumps when shifting Sign In

I bought a 2011 Honda Accord 4 cyl manual transmission (76,000 miles) this year and noticed that when shifting, especially 3-4 gear and 4-5 gear, when the engine is under load accelerating or going up hill the rpm will jump as much as 500-600 rpm. I have never had this happen with a manual transmission vehicle before. I was told this is normal for newer Honda cars with manual transmission. Is this true? If not, what could be the cause/remedy.

Have you attempted to clean the throttle body plate and bore and reset the PCM? You may need a factory scan tool to perform the PCM reset. Reset clears all the learned values for the electronic throttle system.





Since we volunteer our time and knowledge, we ask for you to please follow up when a problem is resolved.

? Used standards. Have you ruled out a plain worn out clutch? RPMs go up but speed doesn't is a strong clue. Granted, hard to know if you can't look right at the wearing parts how good clutches really are,
