Hey I have a wrx sti 2000 ra, when I bought it I realised the clutch was slipping and the guy reduced the fixing price from the sale price etc.
I just wanted to confirm what I am noticing is due to clutch slipping:
put the car at high gear say 4, at low speed and give full race, the rpms rise very quickly to 4-5-6 k but the car doesnt move as fast, then the rpms come down and speed picks up. burning rubber smell after driving.
The second issue is that when the car is idle it seems that the engine shakes slightly every few seconds. Its not much but it can be noticed when car is idle or it is driven at same speed. its a very slight shake or jerk , if you know what i mean... is it spark plug or something else?
the third problem is when i press the brakes there is a scraping sound... break pad worn out?
