    Losing Power! HELP!

    Hey guys, I'm new on here and I have a major problem. I am losing almost all power to the engine in my '98 Impreza WRX. When I accelerate the car does not move until around 4500 rpm in first and I have to continue to rev at high rpms in 2nd-5th in order to reach even minimal speed. If anyone knows what could be causing this I would appreciate it. Thanks.

    I bet your clutch is done.

    But do you have any mods? Any CELs? Anything else going on?

    We don't have any of the GC generation WRXs here. US didn't get the WRX until 2001, with the MY2002 bugeye WRX.
