Question about 1984 Mazda RX-7
While driving my car for a short time the drive train started jolting, like it had an electrical intermittent, and then stalled when I came to a junction. Tried to re-start but would not fire. I then held the accelerator to the floor and tried gain. After about 20 seconds there was a load squeal and the engine began to rev up, but only to 3000rpm. It was coughing and spluttering but I put it in gear to see if I could move. With the accelerator to the floor the car crawled along at about 10mph for a short distance then suddenly the engine rev-ed up to 6000rpm and took off. After I parked the car I restarted it (no problem) I checked the exhaust looking for clues. There was nothing visibly unusual but the exhuast was very hot.
I had something similar happen, my clutch was just worn out. The car stalled on me, (for another reason), and couldn't turn it back on with the key (flooding), so I left it alone for a minute or two, and then I was able to turn it on. I had the clutch replaced and everything was fine.
