Question Transaxle question?? Is this normal:

I've got my car up on jack stands right now, wheels are off, the parking brake is not engaged, and the transmission is in nuetral. I start the car, release the clutch, and the rear hubs start to spin slowly. I pull the parking brake and they stop and the RPM's sink slightly. Is this normal???

Then I think back to driving the car, and I remember that whenever I was sitting at a stop light I'd put the car in nuetral, release the clutch, and the RPM's would drop. Push the clutch in and they would rise slightly.

My car has been running great, the clutch feels strong and it shifts smoothly (well as smooth as can be expected).

Justin

Thanks for the reply, I drained and refilled with Swepco last year, but maybe I need to do it again.

Thanks,
Justin

check to see if the clutch cable is rubbing the throttle cable by looking through the inspection panel beside the pedals. my car did the same thing because of a loose clutch cable clip.

hmmm. This is interesting. Does it do this when the car is up to operating temperature?
