so i took my car to the shop at 8:00am today for the rear wheel bearing didn't have the tools to do it plus looks real difficult. first time i haven't done something to it by myself. is it normal for a car sitting for a while to lag in accelartion i floor it in 4th and nothing happend i let off and reved high up to bout 4500 and then droped to a idle at 2000(this was on the way to shop) my dad said it sounds like my clutch plate is slipping.

any ideas

got her back right now very smooth ride no grinding noise anymore and i don't think rear wheel wobbles anymore either, but still no power when flooring it.

4-5 months but it was down to the when the red light lights up on the gas gauge so yesterday i put some shell "V-Power" in it just 2 gallons thou(2 gallons only cause i used a gas can) so i could drive it to the shop

i don't think its the clutch cause it hasn't been driven. Maybe timing?

about your bearing. Did it sound like metal scraping back there? I just ordered a bearing for my car and was hoping that was it.

It's stock. WHAT!
