my clutch is original, my car has 200,000 km
the clutch does not seem to slip, this is the test I did to see if the clutch is slipping:
test 1: in 2nd gear, accelerate sharply to 6000 rpm: the car accelerate smoothly with a constant increase in speed proportional to the increase in RPM, no jerk nor slip
test 2: hand brake engaged, put the tranny in 3th gear, try to move the car, it stalls right away so the clutch does not slip
test3: from a dead stop, in 4th gear: tried to accelerate the car by releasing the clutch slowly, the car accelerate and catch up in speed with a bit of vibration but does not stall
test4: move the car up a steep incline from 1st gear: no problem at all
the above tests indicate the clutch is still good right?
