    Is it my Clutch?

    Ok I had a new exedy clutch put in about a month a ago and has worked perfect on my 02 wrx, but today I was heading out and out of no where my car wont move, well, I can take off and switch gears just fine no problems but right after take off the car wont excelerate or it excelerates very slow as my rpms shoot up, think its the clutch?

    If the rpms are climbing but the car is not accelerating, yes.

    Damnit it was a brand new clutch, it switches gears perfectly and engages perfect but the car wont accelerate at all so I limped it back to a friends house.

    Its the clutch.. Is not engaging.. If it was something else.. it was the tranny it wouldn't shift.. Rear did.. Car wouldn't be running well at all.. Did you replace the flywheel with the clutch?

    yes the clutch and flywheel were changed with an exedy clutch and has been working perfect and with out warning, no sound nothing it just revs up and no acceleration well it accelerates very slow so I have to switch gears to keep going faster but very slow acceleration as the rps shoot up, so ya it still shifts perfect and no problems getting into gear or at a complete stop just under a load.

    ok heres what I just found, my passenger rear axle is is moving freely and its almost popped out of the diff, so its either stripped out or the diff is bad and it moves all around very easy as if it broke or stripped out

    hehe... I was actually thinking this when I read the first few posts (too bad I got here too late):

    If you ever get problems like the clutch slipping, exedy says to check the "retaining clip on the inner end of the rear axle shaft." You can diagnose by throwing it up on a lift, letting out the clutch in first with the car on. You should have 4 wheels turning, 3 means this problem.

    Just make sure you put the retaining clip back on correctly after you push the axle back in.
