Hi all!
My '92 Loyale just started doing some bizare things! I'ts a 5 speed, it's just front wheel drive with 207K miles on it. In 2nd and 3rd gear you can here and see (tach) the engine rev up a little, then go back down. This happens in the 2-3K rpm range. This JUST started! Are their any tried and true methods of checking for clutch death....or simple adjustment needed??


Many thanks, Ted

Clutch test. In theroy! If you are in 5th gear at about 2-3k rpm. When you step on the gas your speedometer and tach should move at the same rate. If your tach moves faster or much more your cluth is slipping.

I think I remember another version of this! Be in 5th gear, as in start out in your driveway....let clutch out....if car dies quickly, you have a good clutch. If tach rev's, you have falling clutch?? Does this sound familiar??

Many thanks, Ted

Yeah, but I think you are supposed to do it in 2nd gear with the E brake set or something like that..
