I was wondering what would make the revs jump? I was in fourth and accelerating when the revs jumped from ~4000 to 4700 and then back again. I tried doing it again and they did not jump. Is this just dirty fuel as the tank is nearly empty?! :ponder:

She had a full service in January, timing belt, sparks etc and just had service two weeks ago, 64,000 miles on clock. Do you think clutch needs replacing? :roll:

Well, if it continues, then I'd say yes, sorry. I had no problems accelerating up through the gears, but if I wanted to overtake I'd suddenly find the car would rev without much power coming through to the wheels, it only happened occasionally but progressively got worse. Managed to get the clutch changed in the nick of time - the old plate had hardly anything left on it :D

It was happening to me mainly in fourth, the power was quite erratic, so I became quite nervous about overtaking manouvres... sometimes the power was there and she'd fly, then other times she'd just redline immediately and you'd have to pull off the revs and take it easier.

Which ones are disappearing? Your personal avatar - the scooby - or the ISDC member tag? everything looks fine here... :ponder:

It's not in the ISDC site. I mean just in general, for my personal links on my web browser. You know if you have Voda and the little red comma is there for a while if you save it as a link but mine goes after a while and the e on a page just appears.

Sorry Anton, I can't help you there... I use a Mac and have trouble-free computing 99% of the time :smokin:

No worries, I think its just something to do with the cookie security setting on my computer :thumbsup:
Thanks for the help re: clutch, looks like I need a new one. How long do they normally last?! :(

...about 64000 miles??? :ponder: Seriously, it depends how you drive, they can also burn out quick if they haven't been fitted properly. So in this case it pays to go to someone who knows their Scoobies :thumbsup:

On the cookie issue - I think the board might behave differently when you are logged in than to when you aren't. :computer:

Is that good or bad? I thought they would normally go after 60-65 of over normal driving
