do u know if the person you bought it from had added any type of performance chip to the car?

other than that it could be the spark plugs?

Mine slips the clutch from 1-2 and 2-3, but you'd notice it a lot more in 2nd and 3rd if it were a bad clutch.

the clutch was jus recently replaced... i doubt it's the clutch... but like t_venom said, it feels like when u put the car in high gear at a low speed...

after a few seconds.. 10 or more when it picks up a little more speed, thas when i start feeling the push... it jus seems weird cuz there is such a big difference in the response between when i shift from 2nd to 3rd and from 3rd to 4th.. shifting to 4th is jus so sluggish as if the car doesnt want to move...

whas this ecu programming that venom is talking about? how much do u think thas gonna run me? and can local garages do it or would i have to take it to a dealer?
