ur in gear u gas .. the rpms go up and ur still crusing like its at 2000 rpm but actually ur like at 6000 or sumin.. i advise u not to drive around nemore with the clutch slipping like that it'll end up costing u a grip.

back then when i had my 91 integ, the clutch would slip every once in a while.. i'd press the gas, but the car would just rev up to 4k with no power. i didn't realize what it was...

then finally one day the clutch broke while i was driving in the street. i couldn't step on it anymore.. and the gears could move alone.

better it it replaced before it fails on you on the freeway..

like people said...you try accelerating...generally at full throttle in a lower gear and the car doesn't engage....it will shoot the rpms up but the car isn't going nearly as fast as the rpms are rising.


also you can smell the clutch generally.

Check the fluid in your reservoir and make sure it's full and not really dark (if it's dark change it) - I think bleeding your clutch is kinda like bleeding your breaks, when pressure gets low it helps to build it back up.

I was on the freeway when my clutch failed, I went from about 70mph to 0 in about 50 feet - it locked up the wheels for some reason. Needless to say it was scary as fuck, so I'd suggest changing it soon if it needs it...
