[DML] Re: Revs increase but no more power



How to check for slipping clutch disc do the following.  Rest the front of your DeLorean up 
against a fixed object like a tree or a wall.  Put your transmission in the highest gear, in 
your case 5th gear, and slowly let out the clutch pedal.  If the engine wants to die then 
your disc is grabbing well but if the disc continues to slip then it needs to be replaced.
I heard this on a helpful radio show called Car Talk in the U.S.A.  Here's their web site

Hi Guys,

Took the Delorean out for a drive yesterday and noticed a strange problem.

When driving in third or fourth gear at around 2000rpm, if I accelerate hard
the engine rpm climb as the speed increases up until around 3000rpm and then
suddenly the rpm increase further to around 4000rpm with no increase in
speed.  After the sudden jump the car continues to accelerate gradually
until the speed meets the rpm of the engine.

It does not happen every time but is happening often enough that I think its
a problem that is going to get worse.

Any ideas.
Paul.
