Strange slipping happening with the clutch (I think??)

Ok Peeps,

I tried searching, and found some similar problems, but this one is a bit weird.

I have a Monster Stage 2 clutch with about 37,500 miles on it now. Ever since it was installed it still chatters. Anyway, not sure what's going on with that!!!

Help me out with a weird issue when I'm driving. I was getting onto the Highway last week and was in 3rd and shifted to 4th and gave it some gas, and noticed that the engine revved up a few rpms before the car began to speed up, and I thought maybe my wheels hit a slick spot on the road, and just broke loose or my drive-shaft was slipping somehow at the doughnut, but I didn't think it could be clutch related , because I didn't even have the clutch pushed in at the time it was slipping

The next morning I was going to work and tried to get it to slip again, so i ripped thru 1st, 2nd , 3rd and it grabbed like a sunna bitch, (I have a Monster stage 2 clutch)!!! I was cruising in 4th about 45 mph and the rpms were about 2k or slightly below and then gassed it some, clutch fully disengaged , and engine revved up some (slipping till I guess the clutch grabbed and started speeding up again(takes about 1-2 seconds before it grabs. I did let it slip longer before I got off the gas and did notice it smelled like burnt clutch for a while. Same thing going to 5th and 6th!!!

What would cause the problem I'm having, it will pull hard off the line in 1st, 2nd , and 3rd and no slipping, but in 4th,5th,6th if the speed of the car is lower then the shifting speed it tends to slip. Thanks for any info!!! I don't know if its the clutch or it could be the pilot bearing going out!!!

That's not the clutch, something further back in the drivetrain is slipping. Could be an axle or the diff.

Is there a way to figure it out? I have 57k on the rearend(stock). I noticed while doing a burnout at the track i had to counter steer more and more to stay straight. Only had 3 runs but half way throu 2nd gear i felt the slip and got out of it and left .I took it easy driving home cuz it was a 2hour drive.

Got the car here and apart - it's amazing how quickly a rear main seal leak will end a clutches life.

Out with the old one and in with a new one!

Back of block seal off


Make sure you clean off the back, a little RTV helps the seal


According to Helms 106 inch pounds for the oil pan to cover bolts and 18 ft lbs for the cover bolts

Thanks WRP. Do most leaks come from the rubber seal or the oil pan cover bolts.

Not much of an expert on that. I am guessing the seal failing is the place most of the leaks comes from

Yea it is amazing how some oil leaking on the clutch will cause it to slip. Good as new, with a new clutch and new main seal. I had a combination of things happen to cause the clutch to slip. The main was leaking, so the oil was on the clutch, causing it to slip. Killed 2 birds with 1 stone, and should be the last clutch I put in my car.
Thanks Steve for great service and lighting fast turn around. Feels great so far, still breaking it in, c'mon 500 miles.
