So I have a 2005 hyundai elantra, it is a manual transmission. I was having problems with the rpm’s going higher than normal at random times while driving, then I noticed that the fluid in the clutch fluid reservoir was low. I determined that to be caused by a bad clutch slave cylinder that was leaking fluid. So I replaced the slave cylinder and that seemed to fix the problem, but now I am noticing that the car lacks power when I’m going up any sort of hill or trying accelerate faster than normal. When going up a hill the rpm’s will go up and I have a hard time maintaining my speed. When trying to accelerate fast, as in pulling out in front of someone or similar situations, the car seems slugish and it seems like I need to shift because the rpm’s are high but I’m not going fast enough yet for the next gear.
Wondering if anyone knows if this sounds like it would be some sort of problem related with the clutch going bad or could the leaking slave cylinder have damaged the clutch. Or does this sound like more of a different problem, maybe something with a fuel filter or somthing?
If anyone can give me some advice it would be appreciated.
