    I just turned 17 and my old chevy pickup doesnt get the greatest gas mileage so i traded one of my older motorcycles for a 1999 escort zx2, is in really good shape, but it idles high randomly and when you push the clutch in it idles up to 2-2.5k when driving and going to shift up you push the clutch in and the rpm will stay at where it was for a second or two then drop down like it should but this delay bugs me, and it does bog down if you are romping on it between 4.5 to 5.5 k then the power kicks in. Any help would be appreciated.
