Clutch problem?

Everytime I shift when flooring the gas, the next gear never wants to engage and it makes the engine rev up even higher. Also, when I rev up then dump the clutch, ( I know it's really not good) the clutch engage at 1st gear but once I shift at 2nd it slips like hell. Last autumn I changed the clutch master cylinder and I'm wondering if they just sold me an el cheapo brand or maybe my clutch is starting to go. So what are you thoughts?

Sounds like it's only slipping when you abuse it...Unless you're ready to drop your trans and put in a new clutch, go easy on your clutch man.

Troof, 50% of the time, it works every time










Your clutch is already toast, and your expediting its death. Good job, keep going.

Re: Clutch problem?

Alright that's what I thought. I guess I'll change the flywheel and the clutch when I'll do my H23a swap

Re: Clutch problem?

Uh, will that be next week? Because your clutch is done, Finito', Gonzo, Au revoire, Goodnight everybody! Get a cheap one from eBay or something. Check out your master/slave cylinders too, dumping clutches.
