Clutch or Tranny??

Hey
Driving on the highway i do 75 and my RPMs are usually at 2800-2900. Lately, they have been up by 3100 to keep the same speed. Could my higher Rpms mean my clutch is starting to slip, or could my tranny be needing a flush? Any ideas? thanks!

Transmission flushing is for automatics transmissions. With a manual your gears will not slip "a little", they are either engaged, disengaged, or making noise thats lets you know you definately have a problem

Is it periodically, like under heavy load, winding up the RPMs? Or does it just always stay at 3100? This is a manual right?

Hey,
You might want to invest in a new clutch, you are slipping

Hey

I took it to my mechanic and ended up getting a new mufler, tailpipe, radiator, thermostat and a full tune. when i first bought it, i had to replace the cat. the stone broke apart, and it was clogging up my muffler. there was a bunch of crud all caked inside, and basically no air was getting through so the pressure was building up when i'd accelerate. clutch and tranny are fine. i was most surprised at my radiator. its only 6 years old with 38K on it. Anyone else had to replace a radiator this soon?
