Unwanted reving during hard acceleration

Hi guys....

I have a 52 plater WRX trubo and recently it has been reving at around 3k during hard accelleration it only revs for about from like 3k to 4k and revs up then drops and everything continues as normal.... it does this in every gear bar first. It is kind of like the clutch slipping but i am not sure if that is the actual problem

does anyone know wat this could be my friend diagnosed this to be a cam sensor fault on the electrical diagnosis....

any ideas~????

thanks
neil

Doesn't sound like a cam sensor problem to me. Cam sensor would usually cause problems starting and possible an erratic idle. Do you have either of these problems?

You sure it isn't the clutch?

sounds like clutch slip to me, 3k is about the hardest pulling point in the power band so thats where you'll see it

stick it top gear 5th for some 6th for others and from low down in the rev range accelerate it hard, clutch slip shows more in higher gears.

Hey bud, its not the end of the world, speak to Harvey or Bob's on scoobynet and they will sort you out. As for fitting, it shouldnt be too expensive, dependent on the specialist.



PS Apologies if there is a trader on here who sells clutches, I just know the guys i mentioned are not badly priced.

Re: Unwanted reving during hard acceleration

tbh i find going direct to a tuner is cheaper (unless your fitting it yourself of course), where abouts are you based?
