Tell me, Mr. Anderson, what good is a phone call when you are unable to speak?
My clutch sticks!
I was racing a vtec lude tonight and after each time I'd shift, (just in 2nd and 3rd), my clutch would stick and would stay at the rpm I shifted at for a second or two and then finally drop back down. Like it wouldn't catch the gears immediately.This is really hard to explain. But if anybody could help me, that would be great.
same thing happened to me.. your clutch is worn out..
it stays at just over 5k, then goes down and grips and starts rising right? and u cant chirp into 2nd anymore..
i just replaced my clutch and now its all good...

YEAH!!! lets just throw parts at it!!! while youre at it, replace the taillights and the headliner too!
I meant stuck because it seems like it's harder to shift out of it, as if it stuck there. Using extra force, I can shift but it only happens with 2nd gear.
does the car sorta 'jerk' as you pull it out of gear? this could be a bent linkage or something internal. i know you dont wanna hear that but... describe it a little further...
It rarely does this. But when it does, it does it when I'm racing and shifting fast.
That's exactly what I'm talking about. But, the b*tch that sold me the car *SAID* the clutch had been replaced. I guess not
she probably did, but when you were racing on it, you managed to put some hotspots on the flywheel and PP and caused it to lose its efficiency. this would make sense because you also say it happens when you race (i.e. when you heat it up).
