Rpm Counter Question

hi guys, just a quick question, my engine light came on so went to subaru, they plugged it in and a misfire on 1 and 3 cyl was detected but they couldnt find a problem, anyway touch wood its been ok since but ive noticed since then that sometimes say when im at 3/4000 rpm in 2nd or 3rd nice and steady driving go to change up a gear the revs seem to stick for a split second at say 3k or even rise up a tiny bit for a split second?????? any ideas..cheers

That symptom is usually called flare and can be caused by a variety of things from a worn out track on the throttle sensor to a duff spark plug.

When mine was doing that it turned out to be a bad coilpack but unless someone backs me up that could be 1-100 its that.

Im sure someone will come along and help you better than i can m8.

cheers pal, coil pack/spark plugs would make sense as ive had my engine light on twice in a month with a misfire on 1 and 3 first time it was a loose wire on coilpack, second time subaru couldnt find anything... been ok for a while but just noticed this rpm thing....?? cheers
