Help! Clutch slipping when changing high gears.
I`m on my second Alfa. Owned a 156 and now own a 159...much to my husband`s annoyance(love it!!).
He hates the car and his first reaction when I said its clutch was slipping was to get rid of it.
Anyway, garage had it to change the clutch but it didn`t slip no matter what the clutch guy did so it didn`t get done. Now, some 2-3 months later, I`m on the motorway and going through the higher gears whilst passing a lorry...the clutch slips and the revs are there but I`m not really going any faster. I`ve been carefully driving it since ...not wanting to break down on the M4! It`s fine from a standstill and even on hills but still loses power , not every day as I`m driving it like it`s a baby, but when I push it a bit. I try not to do this now but believe that if I did push it, it would still be slipping.
Any ideas, please?
