I have noticed an issue today when driving and was hoping someone might have some ideas. Car is a 2008 PEUGEOT 207.
I have noticed that sometimes when I floor the accelerator at 4th and 5th gear, the RPM will shoot up to 3-4 rather than the usual 1-2 but the speed will not increase in tandem. This does not always happen and seems to be random. If I bring the accelerator back up and then gradually increase the speed, it tends to be fine.
From what I've seen online, a lot seems to indicate as to a slipping clutch or something. Would I notice any other symptoms if this was the case? The clutch feels normal and there is no grinding noise, nor no odd smell which I've seen people say are also symptoms of a slipping clutch.
I know I have a leaking CV Boot (leaking grease into the passenger side wheel). It's due to go into my mechanic this week - could this be the cause of my problem?
Thanks in advance.
