try 5th gear, that should stall it. if not then i say new clutch time.



next time please put this in the correct section, this is a general problem.

alright, thats fine.
So 5-10mph and put it in 5th and see if it stalls? if stalls then a new clutch is needed?

probably you do. if you try to give it gas from a standstill or rolling going from nuetral to 5th, the engine should lug a little and stall. if it revs some and keeps going thats the clutch slipping.

well i thought just about in any gear, if you slip it enough and fifth gear requiring a lot of slipping to get going, you could take off in any gear. On flat ground that is.

the point is to NOT feather the clutch alot, in 5th a such a low speed the engine should be stalled by the transmission.

The other way is is when you give it gas in 2nd-3rd and it over revs on its own then its slipping and its nearing the end.

To me when my clutch was about 99% shot, it felt like something was "stretching" when I went to accelerate. Engine would rev when I pressed on the gas, car would barely accelerate, then as the RPMs started to drop a bit it would get moving a bit more.

yes well 5th gear should always kill the car, make sure and try it in 4th also, the engine rpms shouldnt be able to raise while the car isnt accelerating.

Well then I do believe its time for me to replace mine as well. It sometimes doesnt want to go in reverse. And I did that test and rolling at 10mph I put it in 5th and it didnt stall.

Go in really low speeds 20-25 put it in 4th or fifth. If the rpms go up and the speed is not increasign then your clutch is slipping. I know my clutch is a littl ebit worn out since girl was drivign it but it doesnt slip or anything > 60K

if you give it gas in 5th like that, does the engine rev but car not go anywhere?

Pull your e-brake. Throw the car in second and do a normal get go launch. If the car revs up and the tires don't spin the clutch is gone.

That in itself could blow your clutch. That can be good for it?

No. It just steadily speeds up. Really slow but it does not stall.

well otherwise does it feel like the clutch is slipping? i mean does the engine rpm feel porportional to the speed at which you're accelerating?
