Default Dying clutch?

Last night I decided to give my car a little push. When I got into 3rd gear (clutch was all the way up) my rpms stayed at 7k and slowly went down as the clutch grabbed. It's the first time this has happened to me. I can still smell my clutch a little bit today as I'm driving casually.

if you think your clutch is slipping, put it into 3rd gear and go WOT from 2k or 3k rpms. if the rpms go up fast and the car barely accelerates, you need to get a new one

In 3rd gear at 2k rpm I'm going 26mph. And at 3k rpm I'm going 39mph. Not going to accelerate very fast at all at those numbers lol. But no the clutch didn't slip @ WOT... Again at those numbers I don't really even see a bad clutch slipping. Maybe you thought I have a 6-speed. 02 WRX.

If you clutch is slipping, your rpms will shoot up really fast, that's what he means. If your clutch is good, it will hold the rpms and take a while to accelerate.

Cory,

When I first noticed my clutch slipping, it was in the 3-4k range. If the clutch is in fact slipping, it'll only get worse over time. The fact you could smell your clutch definitely means you've got a problem. Mine had around 100k before it started. Had to replace it within 5k miles...

It could be that valve that prevents excessive drivetrain shock from dumping the clutch. I had something similar happen to me the one time I tried to launch my car, and it looks like you tried a very hard 2-3 shift at redline.

You should fill out your profile so we know what car you have, and can give better advice.

I didn't dump it though. Once it started to engage, I added throttle and let off the clutch evenly
