rpm gear/shift/gas issue

Recommended Posts

I'm opening a new thread on this issue with my 02 996 C4 cab, standard trans, 41k miles. I am not sure how to properly diagnose or get an idea of what is happening with my 996....

When I apply gas evenly and not aggressively, and shift, the car seems to do fine. Just like normal. When I give her some gas and drive more aggressively, the car seems to "lose" its gear and just RPM. I take my foot off the gas and she "finds" the gear again. This is predominantely happening in 3rd, 4th, 5th gear around 4k rpm or so.

Could need a clutch at 40k miles? Doesn't seem related to the clutch. Almost like a fuel line or feed issue. I am not very technical and just learning these things.

any ideas, suggestions are most appreciated.

Hi if you are getting RPM but no go then the problem is the clutch. 3rd, 4th, and 5th are the highest torque demand gears as they are wide ratio and you accelerate with them. I would call this issue worn disc or failing pressure plate. 100% either or. Good luck

Thanks for the quick response. Its probably time for that new clutch.

I was worried because the other week it snowed lightly - and I took her to work. I turned the corner in a residentail area, and slid over the median - taking the front drivers side wheel over the curb with a big bump. Not sure if it was related to that either. Stupid me, i left the SUV at home....
