Someone please help me reading this thing!! >_<


a few things here.

1. When did you do your new clutch? You know you have to drive NORMAL for at least 500 miles before you start smashing right?

2. Who did your clutch?

3. Your Battery is going out. Starter needs enough power to crank engine. So you have to check 3 things.

1. is battery good
2. is alternator good
3. check fuses. Battery fuse. specially the alternator fuse.

this happened to me where I was driving and my rpm's would go crazy and my head lights were dimming. Turned out I had a Blown Alternator Fuse. Little freken fuse.

You didn't know about the 500 mile thing because your mechanic didn't inform you how to break in a clutch. Automotive engineering huh...


check all your fuses one by one and report back.

my cousin told me about it i think thats whyy my dad aint say nothin

checked all the wires they seem fine in good shape ima get an amp wiring kit and capacter however you spell it for 80 bucks from walmart too reduce battery drain

had radiator hose replaced new clamp and the sensor that controls the speedometer because when we took the tranny out the wires for the sensor came out and we didnt know where the colors went

only problem i think we have now is my stereo and the battery
