I am posting this at steds request. He says he has a problem with his car that when he starts driving, he has no power in 1st or 2nd gear but as soon as he shifts to third, the car is fine as normal. Any ideas?

Need more details. Has he recently fitted/removed anything? Is this problem constant or just when hot/cold?

his car does have a very strange smell of eggs every now and again, but net thought that was his battery, apparently his battery smells like that when its on its way out.

From what I gathered, the problem is constant, and he has not removed or fitted anything.

smell of eggs tends to point towards the CAT (catalytic convertor)

How many dying batteries do u get to smell stedmeister? Sounds like ur CAT but i didnt think it affected performance that much,
It sounds a bit like what a dying clutch does. one way to test it is to try and wheelspin. If the revs stay hish and the car slowly pulls away the clutch is worn, also try rolling along at about 15mph in second then flooring it, if there is a rise in revs-then a slow rise in speed the clutch slipped with the shock of the power, try to take it easy and get it into a garage for a mechanic to look at it, im sure you will get a free quote for a new clutch/cat. Whatever is at fault

Could be the oil seal leaking all over the clutch plate. Take the cover off the bottom in the middle (go under the car), it's held on by a few bolts. Have a look inside for black deposits.

It may be ur crank case seal mate, I went through a clutch in 12 months cos of that, U need a new clutch for sure mate and a replaced seal or two.

The clutch may be good as new just covered in oil but they cannot be cleaned! it will never work again

Make sure the leak is fully fixed and they dont cover the new new clutch in ****e

I see 140 notes leaving ur bank account mate
