About two weeks ago I noticed the engine's rpm's were higher than usual when stepping on gas. The car was not going along with the engine. It shifts ok I'm only driving a couple of mile at a time keeping the rpm's down. Is this a need of a new clutch or could it be something more simple. What would be the cost. Who could trouble shoot it properly with out soaking me. It's a nice car otherwise

To diagnose it, go to ahill and short shift the trans, in other words go into 4th or 5th too soon and hit the gas, if the rpms go up and the car doesnt go the clutch is slipping, if the car bogs down the clutch is grabbing. At that mileage I would guess you are ready for a clutch. Youare problaby looking at about 150 or so for the clutch kit and around 6-7 hours of labor to replace it.
