Slipping Clutch


Recommended Posts

Car is a 1.8 Avensis 1999 V reg. 96,000 miles on clock. I have owned it from 65,000 miles as 3rd owner. Covered 30,000miles in last 2 years. Problem I have is that in gears 2/3/4, if you accelarate anything more than gently, then the engine revs go up but the engine speed doesnt. It is as if your foot in resting slightly on the clutch. Which it isnt. Does this from cold or hot engine restart. However doesnt do this all the time. But more often that not. The car is due an annual service and I will mention it then, but any clues?

How hard is it to replace the clutch? I'm thinking of doing mine but wondered how difficult it was and if you'd need any special tools..
