Manual transmission


#1

engine revs but does not accelerate as well, esp. in lower gears, but also in 3rd, 4th and 5th.


#2

If your foot is off the clutch pedal, and the engine revs without acceleration correctly, you probably need a new clutch.


#3

The problem might be with a slipping clutch. Try putting the transmission in 5th gear and then slowly let the clutch out. If the engine doesn’t stall when doing this, the clutch is worn out.
