Transmission problem
1987 Subaru XT 4 cyl All Wheel Drive Manual 85,000 miles

I noticed while driving and shifting gears the clutch wasnt grabbing very fast it would slowly change gears and slowly catch. While driving all of the sudden my car went into just idling. And as I would shift gears nothing happened. It seems like it goes into gear but nothing happens like it is not catching ant gears at all. Is this the clutch or transmission?

Hi there,

it sounds as if the clutch is failing, I would get a mechanic to test drive it with you and they will know straight away by how it reacts to driving conditions if it is faulty,
