Hope someone can help with my problem. Last week i had my car services, got a new timing belt and other parts replaced including break pads. I had the car for a day and a half, everthing was fine. But after trying to drive off from a traffic light i noticed a stiff acceloration. It doesnt matter what gear I am in, my car seems to take a lot longer to accelorate. Turning the steering wheel also feels heavy. Its like driving with worn tyres and I know how that feels as I have done so in the past but I have since had new tyres.
So i took it back to the garage (veloces) and had someone drive it to test it, they said they did not notice any stiff acceloration or stiff handling but this person did not drive my car previously to know the difference. They did a diagnstic and found nothing.
I am now at a loss, I dont know what to do, my car use to accelorate nicely and nice it feels like its sticking to the road.
I dont know if this will help but ive been told i need a new clutch and gear box. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
