01Blulude is on a distinguished road
Put new clutch, but it's not grabbing after a drive on highway.

So i just put a brand new clutch on my 2001 prelude base.
The first 700 miles ot was fine.

But 3 days ago, after i drove 30minutes on the highway.
Back to city driving, the clutch is not grabbing, its was just reving hard, no acceleration.
Luckily barely made it home.
I let it sit overnight, the next day was fine drove the car about 1hour, but no highway.

And couple hours ago came back from work, 30minutes highway.
The clutch started to slip again !?

I checked all the fluids, they are all good. In case a leak drop to the transmission.
There is no clutch burning smell.

Any idea whats wrong ?

The clutch i still warranty at the garage for 2 more weeks.

Thanks.

Take it back ASAP while warranty is still there. This is a no brainer. Probably pressure plate related. Whatever it is they need to crack it back open and take a look.

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.
