have you checked the fluid level ?
have you ever had the fluid changed?
No but the car was serviced and MOT last month
I really do not know since I have only had the car for 2 months
thank you for replying.
the first thing to do is to check the fluid level if it is low it can give the impression of a clutch slipping.
there should be a short dipstick on the front of the transmission if it needs topping up then use dextron 2 transmission fluid .
If the level is ok then i would consider have the fluid removed and replaced with new as the fluid can deteriorate over time and may not have been changed before.
if you need more advice on this then reply to this .
