before cambelt change and service no problem-then 3 weeks on it starts to happen,mech did say fly wheel was showing some wear-miles on car 126000 hope this helps,would it be clutch even when iam accelerating over 3 thou with foot off clutch revs drop?

 

VW Mechanic: Cardoctor74, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 years ago
Yes honestly it does sound clutch related . It will happen with foot off the clutch and regular driving when it does slip. The mechanic should of recommended doing this at the time he saw the flywheel and this way you do not have to pay all that labor again. Unfortunately the next step is to replace the Clutch , pressure plate and bearing and either replace the flywheel or have it resurfaced.

Hoped this helped.

Positive feedback and bonuses greatly appreciated.
