did you not do the new engine and the clutch and flywheel yourself? i dont know how you wouldnt have a clue... see thats why i always do my own shit. i HAVE to have a clue about whats going on with my car. i never trust it to anyone else.
when does it eventually find its grip? in 2nd gear? or what? does it blow through all of first, then catch in second? or what? of course when a clutch slips the rpms will go up but speedo wont. because the engine is moving but the car isnt.
additives and other shit is not going to solve your problem bro. there is no way that a chemical called stop slip will help a clutch slipping.
"Lucas Transmission Additive was formulated to stop slip in automatic transmissions."
i dont know where you would have added it... in your engine oil or your tranny gear oil? either way its wrong, its made for auto tranny. its for when the torque converter starts to slip on an automatic.
the way a clutch works on a manual tranny is that it is DRY. there is no oil on a clutch and there is no tranny fluid.
it could be a few things...
-bad master cylinder
- - replace that if its old.
-bad slave cylinder
- - replace that if its old
-a leak somewhere in the system
- - take a look around
-really low clutch fluid
- - fill that shit up
-oil leaking from that side of the motor
- - look for oil around the bottom where the tranny mates with the motor
-clutch is going bad.
- - only way to tell is to take it apart and have a look at the disc.
dont put shit in your car that doesnt belong in it. you drive a standard, dont put in automatic tranny fluids. i dont know why someone at an autoparts store would suggest that. if THEY suggested that you get that, bring the bottle back and tell them you want your money back because they gave you a completely wrong suggestion. If it was your own dumb self that picked up that bottle and just went and paid for it, then dont trust yourself around cars ever again.
no just kidding, just ask someone first when you see something that you think might work.
