Is this a problem?

I now own a 2006 cobalt ss sc.... Now when i rev my car a little high it drops back down then lingers around 2k for a couple seconds (without me being on pedal). Is this an issue?

Also I don't plan on revving it, just wanted to see if there was noticeable noises.

Kind of hard to understand what you mean, but what I think you are saying is the when you flog it in neutral, and let the revs go back down, they dont immediately drop but stay at 2k for a bit and then drop??

Mine does the same thing too if that is exactly what you are trying to describe. I believe it has to do with the safety features of the ecu so you don't leave extra fuel in the cylinders from reving it constantly. That and the stock flywheel is REALLY heavy. From factory I believe it is almost 25lbs? So a little 4 cylinder is going to have a tough time spinning it first off, but also controlling it to drop. But its good for gas mileage.

Yeah I just mean sitting there in neutral and hitting the gas hard to rev up the engine. I noticed it does it too if I run it super hard and then push in clutch and leave in clutch when i was high rpms.

Thanks for the response! I love my new cobalt!

Good to hear that you like it. Perfectly normal that you have this issue. Just part of the car. Try not to rev it all the time because you can blow the motor
