That makes me want to think something with your clutch is on its way out or something, if it was moving forward without you letting off the clutch. RPMs all over the place coulda been the clutch slipping from whatever the same issue was

but i was completely in gear, cruising on the highway

i thought it seemed electrical and thought maybe the dealership flashed my ecu when i brought it in the day before, which caused an issue, but they said they didn't touch the electronics

In gear cruising on the highway and the RPMs went up/down?

That's what a slipping clutch would do... Mine does it from time to time.

really? hmm

it's not like the revs just varied a little, and that was that; these were very drastic jumps (after the slight ones); and then the car literally was not able to go above ~2k rpms. those are typical symptoms of a slipping clutch?

Yeah but I'm not sure why it would lurch forward in gear if the clutch was to the floor.

what do you mean? also, do you think it would just be because it needs an adjustment or a wholly new clutch?

With the clutch pedal down, the motor still wouldn't go above 2krpm? That's not a clutch issue.

Generally what happens with a slipping clutch is you'll step on the gas and the engine will rev higher but the car won't move faster, or if it does, not by much. If there were other issues it was probably something different. Not sure what could be doing that though. And a slipping clutch definitely wouldn't make your car move in gear if the clutch pedal is down, that's pretty much the opposite of what you could expect from a slipping clutch.

the clutch pedal wasn't down when the revs were hitting that wall; it all happened during highway cruising

lol @ voided warrenty. Coming from someone who worked in a dealership. its pretty hard to void a whole warranty, If you "flash" your pcm, you will void the powertrain warrenty but that cant create a denial for a suspension issue. You get me? there are actually laws against that kinda thing.


Find another dealer, they are idiots

So my neighbor just knocked on my door and told.me last night around 930 3 guys were casing my car. She also told me that her husband is away is concerned. I told her I was a cop and that I'm armed in the house and to call the police first if she she's anything again. I also told her if she has any issues to call me cause I'm right next door.

So I'm leaving a note on my car tonight:

THIS CAR IS PROTECTED BY A REALLY LOUD ALARM SYSTEM...

... and a Smith &Wesson 9mm
... and a Taurus 24/7 40 Cal
... and an AR15
... and 2 shotguns

PLEASE WAKE ME UP!!!

Yay or nay... as I don't want them to vandalize the car.
