My car is not going as fast as it should or as it normally does, even with my foot to the floor, however my revs arent affected. Initially I thought this was a clutch problem, however after reading so many articles online about clutches, Im now not so sure. My car isnt showing any other signs of the cluthc going eg slipping or smelling etc. HELP! : -)

Ensure the floor mat is not restricting the limit of accelerator movement.

Is the MIL indicating?
