Well, I think my clutch is slipping.
When I accelerate a little more than the minimum needed to keep my engine going, my tach goes up, and I don't see the speedometer go up nor do I feel it going any faster. And I'm pretty sure it's the clutch, just wanting to get an affirmative before I drop $150 on a new one.

Thanks man. I have had problems with the clutch pedal before, and I fixed them. I double and triple checked everything, and the pedal is just fine. I guess that will be $150 more sidetracked on my last woofer. :crap:

I kind of can, but if it slips, wouldn't it rub against the flywheel and smell awful like a normal burning clutch?

to an extent...

the clutch might be so far gone that there isnt much left to burn
if it studders under a load then it is most likely your clutch, something might even be adjusted wrong

Well, I think I'm gonna tear my transmission apart and do some tinkering before I buy a new clutch wheel.

Is it a hydraulic, or cable clutch?

It's a hydro, and I got a new one put in. As it turns out, the flywheel was also badly mangled, so I had to get another one of those as well, which is a real PITA because it cost me $545 after everything, and before that, I was scraping pennies for a ******* Type Argh...
