Question about 1996 Toyota Celica
I was coming out of a slip road from the services, and needed to get upto speed to join the traffic flow, short slip road so accelerated in 2nd upto around 55-60 then shifted upto 3rd and then 4th and finally 5th, bout 3miles later i went to overtake someone so i accelerated from 70 to75mph and noticed the engine was over revving as i hit 75 (still in 5th) so after i overtook i slowed down to 70 to prevent anymore engine over-revving til i got to where i was going.
Anyway I was driving around the town (with the normal urban speed limits 30mph/40mph) where I was and was being really careful not to rev the arse out of each gear and was driving like an old man, after bout 5ins of driving around town I accelerated reasonably gently from a junction and the engine started over-revving again like it had earlier and then all of a sudden it stopped and now its revving like normal like nothing happened, can anyone tell me whats happened please?
If the car rev'd up but did not speed up at the same time the clutch is starting to slip. Check the adjustment and recheck driving. When the clutch starts to wear this is how they act, only most people ignore whats happening and keep driving till adjustments won't fix it and the clutch has to be replaced. Have adjustment checked and keep an eye on it and hopefullty you won't need a clutch yet.
