2001 Subaru Forester Base 4Cyl2.5L - Transmissions & Drivetrains
car does not accelerate well
I have a manual transmission. It shifts properly but then only accelerates slowly. Pushing down more on the gas only makes the engine roar. I'm thinking my transmission is going bad but am hoping maybe it's something less expensive.

    Hello
    It sounds to me like your clutch is slipping, in other words worn out.
    Hope this helps
