'09 Mazda 5 w/ 2.3 l Duratec and 5-speed manual, 136K km. I don't drive this vehicle often. I was test-driving it Saturday after replacing a wheel bearing and noticed that the engine revs were getting ahead of the vehicle's speed - that is, when I shifted into 2nd or 3rd, the RPMs would go up before the car seemed to respond. I'm thinking the clutch is on the way out.
Any thoughts on how I can be sure? I don't want to undertake an unnecessary repair!
Thanks in advance.
