Hi,

I have recently experianced a revving problem when I get to about 2.5k rev's. Once I accelerate past 2.5k it acts as though the clutch is engaged until it gets to about 3.5k and then it feels like the clutch disengages and accelerates rapidly. I'm not sure what could be causing this as the car seems to have no other problems e.g. sounds fine running idle etc.

Any help with this will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Clutch is slipping, how many miles has the car done?

Try the classic test. Stop on a level surface and then try pulling away in 3rd. If the revs go up and it goes then the clutch is probably slipping. If it stalls/would stall then the clutch is probably ok.
