sup guys...yesterday i noticed while i was shifting, as my car catches 1st gear it vibrates a little as if i were in too high of a gear...then, while shifting from 2-3 or 3-4 etc. i dont feel the power...could it be time to change the clutch? my dad told me before he gave me the car that the clutch was almost done...its been like 4 months and a lot of miles...and since im dropping it off next week i might as well have that guy throw in a clutch too if needed, thanks....

Darkmage is an unknown quantity at this point
heres a test for you to do, as I asked in a different forum if my clutch was going bad.


Some guy told me to go about 25-30mph preferrably uphill, then shift it into fifth, and if the RPMs go up, but you really aren't going anywhere, your clutch is pretty bad.

Mine didn't do this, but my mechanic said I have about 6 months, depending on how I drive it. (Meaning about 3 months)

When I pull hard on 2nd, the whole car vibrates.

clutches are one of those things that go either suddenly or you get tell signs of it going. when mine went it was slowly. i could tell that it was wearing down little things started to pop up, but the performance was good,, then one day boom i blew about 2 teeth off the pressure plate..

all i can tell you is that if you think (you will know best how the car feels) that the clutch is going than start saving up and/or purchace your new one. then ride out the one you have.
