holding back
my gts seems to be holding back on me! for some reason when i drive and reach the 5000rpm range it seems that the car pulls back. i mean my engine does get louder but i don't feel like i am accelorating as fast as i should when i reach that rpm. before i reach the 5000rpm rage i do feel the fast pick up but then the car seems to start holding back what could that be? also what is the mechanical name for lift bolts and what id number is it because my toyota service department is filled with dumbasses

yeah if the rpms keep racking up but you dont really seem to be moving then it is very possible your clutch is on its way out. if you know anyone, who knows about cars in general (local mech, ect.) have them drive it around the block and they can let you know. as for the lift bolts their mechanical name is flange bolts (their are two of them) but even if you refer to them as a flange bolt good luck because the numbnuts at toyota might still not have a clue. btw: their part number is 90105-06293
