Anyone from the North-West?
Leroy has suggested I re-post my problem here, will copy/paste from the Engine forum.
I bought a V reg RXE Estate today (yesterday now) (16V petrol engine, manual), when I test drove it a couple of days ago it was fine, today I drive it home and when I go into third gear the engine starts to race, by the time I`m in 5th its racing away altho doesn`t seem to be acceleration as the car doesn`t want to go faster, just sounds like it needs to be in a higher gear.
Someone has suggested to me it may be a slipping clutch, tho having read a thread here on that it doesn`t sound the same.
I live in Salford, I did what Lereoy said and put the car in first, hand brake as tight as I could and tried to pull away, the car stalled.
I got it privately so have no recourse to a warranty etc.
Hoping someone can help me out.
Currently in Jesstiggs's garage:
