Yes it is the clutch slipping, in high gear the greatest load is put on the clutch so that is when they slip the most.

My 1995 sentra shifts fine in all gears but when i accelerate in 4th or 5th gear it the rpms wind up and the car doednt real respond feels like its in the accelerater do i need a new clutch


Sounds like the clutch is slipping. If the clutch is bad, it will slip in high gears (4th & 5th) but seem to work fine in lower gears. Clutch probably needs replaced but have a mechanic check it out first because it's a fairly expensive job. If your clutch is actuated via a cable (not hydraulic), it may just need adjusting.

I have a 1988 4X4 pick up 4 cylinder. When i start to pull a hill the rpms go up and you can hear the engine revving up but the truch won't pick up speed. I thought the clutch might be slipping but I can...


I would suspect the pressure plate and clutch need replacing. Your truck is 22 years old and if it has never had the clutch replaced you can almost bet it needs a new clutch and pressure plate. It slips in 4th & 5th gear due to the fact the the ratio is high and it takes more pressure to hold the clutch in place.

When driving in 5th gear should the RPMs run at 3000 RMPS. Mine is a 4 cly 5 speed


You don't provide much information to go on (type of vehicle, type of engine, 2wd or 4wd, etc.) RPM is always going to be based on the speed you're traveling with a standard transmission. My 4 cyl 5 speed Nissan pickup in 5th gear runs at 3000 RPM at about 75mph.

The clutch is slipping, eventually it will fail completely. The reason she notices it in 5th gear is because 5th or overdrive uses the transmission the most IE low rpms high speeds. Soon it will affect all gears. Sorry the only way to fix it ts to replace it.
I think they make a clutch kit for this model
Good luck
Hope this helps

I have a 90 toyota pickup i noticed that i lose power when i shift to 5th gear, it is lifted 4x4 when i went home there was gear fluid leaking out somewhere under from the transfer case please help thanks


Old cars do bad things, transfer case leaks don't slow em down unless the fluild is low or gone and been run dry a few times. Lifted means to me big tires The stock gear ratio and the bigger tires can overgear the truck. Fifth gear is now too high. Or this problem just accored and it was pulling high gear and now even thoght the tires are fully inflated and the brakes aren't dragging anf the engine is not missing and A bubba tunr-up hasn't set the timing too low or too high , Maybe the exhaust is clogged up or the converter (exhaust) is. Auto tranny not likly to be 5 speed so a manuel is likely, Is the clutch slipping? Lots of blnks open on you question V6 or 4, Size of tires and when dir the problem start afer you raised it? Blocks alot more wind raised and the stock setup with stock tires is geared super tall as in there ann't no more.

1995 nissan pickup manual transmisson slip


sounds to me like you have a clutch issue. quick test for you to perform. put truck in 5th gear and pull / engage the e-brake and try to take off, just like if you were in 1st gear. If truck does'n stall, clutch is weak and you will need to check it. good luck.
