    Question Clutch problem maybe???? I DONT KNOW!!

    ok well heres the deal i have a 96 trans am 6 speed, and about 2 weeks ago i was driving in 5th gear and gave it some gas and it reved up real high and kinda started going fast slowly and acted like it was slipping, well it didnt do it until a week later in 2nd gear. So i went to the track and dragged race and when i took off it reved up real high and took a second to take off and i used to be able to scratch all the way through 4 gear but it doesnt even scratch anymore and when i was racing every gear acted like it took a second to get up and go but was reved up pretty high and then would grab eventually and take off, but it got to where it wont even scratch the gear anymore whenever i popped the clutch out....so what could it be? clutch? pressure plate? i have never done one before so i was just needing to know what to do or whatever!! so please let me know

    well chances are, with the beating you have given the slipping clutch you will need a new clutch, pressure plate and flywheel.

    Cheapest kit I know of is the LS7 kit. AS for difficulty I would put it up there with moderate and a need of a bit more then basic hand tools as you have to drop the trans to do it. Other then that its not to bad. Other things that should be done while in there is replace the rear main seal on the engine, the front seal on the tranny, the throw out bearing, the slave cylinder and flush the system. I would say expect it all to take the better part of day if you have never done it before. one important tool to have is a clutch alingment tool.
