when driving along its fine but if i put my foot to the floor the revs quickly goes up and then sink down a little , is this the clutch slipping?

 

 

something in my mind makes me wonder if its to do with the twin cam set up as not had alot of experience with escorts and not to sure on the engines or how they run :cheers:

ive noticed my car does leak oil but i geuss it would only be internally if it was the case ?, cars done 98k now and not sure when the clutch was last replaced

 

 

as Stu said, rear seal dropping oil into the box bell housing and onto the clutch plate, the same oil would then leak out of the often bad joint on the boxs lower plate..... wether that or clutch dying normally, either way the box needs to come off to 100% diagnose :thumb:

yeah i know what u mean mate , i am mechanical minded and im considering giving it ago , just need a little advice on removing the box etc , got a haynes but that only mentions how to remove clutch etc

 

i would take it to a garage but then i'm worried it is the leaking seal , how much would that roughly cost to be done as the clutch fitting is going to cost about £300 at a guess ?calling up tomorrow for quotes.

 

as i dont want to take it in for just a clutch change and it turns out to be megga money bill

Im sure a clutch fitted is more like the £200 mark?
