Q: when shifting gears release clutch feel like it's still engaged

asked by on

When shifting gears it feels like the clutch is still engaged after I release the clutch motor we'll just Rev up and barely move I can't get above 30 miles an hour

My car has 155152 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.

This is a symptom of a slipping clutch disc. You should have a mechanic verify the clutch linkage is not binding and quote the replacement clutch.
