      Clutch Slipping?

      Hi all,

      I am having a problem with my esteem vxi 2006. Whenever I try to accelerate the car by flooring the accelarator pedal the RPM shoots up but the car does not gain speed. This is more prominent in 2nd and 3rd gear. In 4th and 5th it seems fine. On occassions it misbehaves even in 4th and 5th.

      What could be the problem here? Is the clutch gone? The clutch was changed at about 60K km. Now it is 96K km. I have done only one hill drive in between to Kausani (Uttarakhand). And the usual stop and go traffic on a daily basis.

      Please help me out with suggestions.

      Thanks
      Manish

      Sounds like a slipping clutch. Get it replaced.

      Is it normal? I mean, is this the life of a clutch, 36K km? Please can you suggest me which clutch brand is good for replacement and how much it should cost.

      Clutch life depends majorly on how you drive and where you drive. Stop and go traffic can reduce its life but unless you rest your foot on the clutch pedal, this is slightly early in terms of replacement.
      Sometimes, It is better to count our blessings than think about what we didn't get.

      Check if Exedy is available if you want a performance clutch. If not I can help you procure it.

      Or try Ceekay/Valeo for stock performance.
