    Question 02 wrx dead clutch???

    I have an 02 wrx wagon 115k cobb stage 1
    I think its safe to say I am a driving enthusiast,
    That being said, with the amount of miles on my car I expect the clutch to be nearing its end.

    I have felt what seems to be the clutch slipping, happened in 5th gear two times, while cruising (not accelerating at all or going up hill). and once in 3rd

    I live in upstate new york, temperatures have been near 0 when this has occurred
    I don't really think temp has anything to do with it, usually colder makes clutch stick i think

    the slip doesn't fit what I know as a classic clutch slip, its more like a jerk, and the rpms don't really rev.

    I do get on it, and have some fun, almost daily...but no problems under abusive acceleration.

    Am i correct in thinking this is the clutch??

    My clutch went a couple months back and it doesnt sound like your car has a bad clutch id have it looked at, a good way to know is first and easiest if you let out on the clutch and your rpms go up but your speed doesnt match it, is it harder to put the car in gear than usual, as far as the temperature i live in northern japan and when i drive my car in the morning the transmission feels pretty bad but its because your fluids need to warm up. but like i said your past the mileage point where clutch;s usually go so have it looked at by a mechanic hope this helps

    The RPM won't necessarily shoot up when it first starts to go. You may just notice a few jerks like you did. I'd expect it to happen when accelerating or going uphill, but not necessarily. It all depends how the car was being driven before it happened, how long it had been driven, was the clutch being used a lot, etc.
