    Default Can you Help ~ Loss of Power, High Revs

    I need your help in trying to figure out what the problem with my car is.

    Symptons

    Travelling at a constant speed on a flat road the revs start to get higher and higher.
    When pulling away and working through the gears the revs are there but there is hardly any power
    Genereally alot less power than usual.
    A distinct burning smell
    No warning Lights etc

    All the above was happening today in drifts and drabs..

    So any ideas?

    i would think net q would cover it but you need the dealer to check it over they may say they need you to pay for them to strip it ..that is normal if it found to be a faulty part they will warantee it but if it is found it is your driveing they will charge you for the job ...

    Well seeing as most of my 12k has been motorway they would be hard pressed to say it was MY driving ( i know it was prob the other driver) But still
    36K and needing a new clutch is INSANE!
