1998 1.8 over revving - elsapel
Hi, i've recently purchased the above car, and it seems to have a 'rev' issue. whilst it doesn't happen all the time im still a bit worried. The revs seem to jump from 3000 to 3500 when accelerating, then take a while to go back down again. it doesn't do it whilst changing gear or slowing down though (so far). When i say they jump to 3000 upwards, it happens if i accelerate fairly quickly, but can be from idle to 2000...
I'm stuck and a total focus novice - any ideas?!

thanks!

If the revs suddenly jump when in gear, but the car doesn't go any faster, then a slipping clutch comes to mind.

Bought trade or private?
