Question How can you tell if your clutch is slipping?

Whats an easy way to tell if your clutch is slipping or not?

I don't suspect my clutch is but I was wondering if there is a simple way to find out.

I tried testing the accleration, watching the rpms, but I don't know if I'm experiencing a slipping clutch or just turbo lag.

If the car is in gear, the rpm's are rising like your accelerating, but the car isn't moving anywhere, there's a good chance you're clutch is slipping. It will feel odd the first time it ever happens, you'll probably think you just didn't put it in gear all the way or something, what exactly are you experiencing that you think might be your clutch slipping?

Basically I put my car into first and the tach went to about 3K before I even started moving.

Plus, lately when I go to put my car into first I don't get any "notchiness" or resistance like I always did before.

With a good working clutch, you should see the rpm rise at the same rate as your speed.

If the rpm is rising faster than your speed given the respective gear, then your clutch is probably slipping.

Whats a good speed to test the car at?

Cause at lower RPMs the RPMs are gonna rise faster than MPH cause of turbo lag.

Any speed should work as long as the engine/clutch is under load

The more I read your responses to posts the more I think you have no clue what you are talking about.....

put the trans in 5th and put on the e-brake. Slowly let out the clutch and see if the engine dies. Do not give it any gas. If it dies, the clutch is fine, if not.. the clutch is going bad or is bad.
