Hi I recently bought a Honda Accord Exec 2010 2.2 i-dtec 210k km, I own it for about 5 days now, I have been driving with it everyday, but since yesterday, A weird problem start to occur, When I am accelerating from gear 1-2-3 everything is fine (manual transimmision) but If i go to 4th gear and accelerate from 2000-3000 rpm, The revs are going up but the car does not accelerate, the same happens for gear 5, but gear 6 is back to normal, It looks like a cluth is sleeping but it's fine for lower revs and lower gears, The clutch seems fine, Any one had a this problem previously?? or knows whats the cause?
In conclusion This was the clutch slipping, I have asked a mechanic friend, about this strange behaviour, He said that sometimes dirt/dust? (I am not very good at this stuff, but I think that's what he meant) builds on the clutch, Thats why the clutch was fine on lower gears and not on higher, He told me to "burn the clutch" a little bit in gear 5,6, Strangely Enough this worked and the clutch does not slip anymore. I have driven 400km since that "fix" and not onces the clutch slipped. He also said that this is very common in Honda Accords.
To be honest I'm still confused on How this have worked but it did, any further explanation would be appreciated.
