Hey

How can i check if my clutch is working perfectly and not slipping?

Also, will a standard clutch slip a lot if you give it 3k revs from a standstil and dump the clutch?

Am wondering if my hesitation is clutch related and know very little about them

:dunno:

Assuming you're really dumping it, it should grab. Are you sure it's slipping, or is it the traction control bogging?

Hi, thanks for the reply.

I dont have TC so think it is the clutch

It sounds like it is slipping but only when i pull away (most likely time i guess)

Put the car in 5th gear, put your emergency brake on and try to go forward. If it stalls then yourt clutch is fine. Its should rock a bit, meaning the clutch would catch and if it does then you know your clutch is ok.
