You need to ask the questions box. I only see part of the title.
Hi. I Have A Corolla With 5 Spd Manual with about 180000 km on it. For Few Months Now It Is Getting More Frequent That When i Shift And Try To speed up the clutch slips and the revs go up a little bit. it happens more in higher gears. when it is cold outside and the engine is cold it seems to work just fine but when it is warmer and/or the engine is warm then it starts slipping. i had the transmission fluid replaced 2 years ago during an oil change and notice no leaks. i have not replaced the break fluid in a couple of years. is my clutch up for a replacement? your help is greatly appreciated.
That is what it sounds like. If the slipping is most noticeable when the engine is under a load, that is most likely the problem. Try this... While driving up a hill, make you way into 5th gear. Push the clutch in and release it while hitting the gas hard. If it slipps, the clutch is bad. NOTE: You will notice more slipping the higher the gear because there is more of a load on the engine/trans.
Let me know what you find.
thanks for your answer. when i go up a hill it does not slip most of the time, at the odd time when i push the gas in hard, but rarely when the clutch pedal is not pressed. if it slips it does so only very briefly and then i can push the gas in as much as i want and it usually does not slip. what can that be?
It sounds like a worn clutch.
thank you for your help
