Gears slipping when accelerating Inspection $79.99 - $99.99 Get a Quote

Hi there. Check the clutch to see if it is slipping. When a clutch slips, the engine will continue to operate but the transmission will not drive under a load. If the clutch is new and the noise is still present, then there is an issue with the transmission internally and needs checked for damage. I recommend seeking out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you diagnose your transmission and clutch.
