Question Clutch Problems - 93 Stealth R/T

So i just got my car fixed and running. I drove it home from the shop and i noticed that my clutch is slipping? It has a brand new clutch. Pressure plate and throw out bearing... I cant seem to figure out why it is slipping. But its slipping extremely bad. By the time i got home (which is about a 10 mile drive) i had nothing. I couldn't even move the car. I could smell the clutch.

Car has a brand new transmission so it cant be that. It goes through all the gears. When i started out driving it today from the shop. It really didn't have any slip at all. Until i got on it a little. Even then it still picked up speed pretty damn fast like it almost should.

By the time i got into town which is about 2 miles into the drive. I still had some grab but i noticed the rpms starting to rise like it was an automatic car. Slips that bad...

Could you make a suggestion on what it is? And or what i should do

No. If the clutch wasn't bled enough you'd have a spongy pedal. The pedal needs adjusted.

Re: Clutch Problems - 93 Stealth R/T

I tried starting out doing what the video told me. I try pushing with just my thumb mucsle and i get resistance right away. Its hard from the start. I noticed when i drive it. When i let it all the way out is when it starts to catch. If i could just make it to where it catches halfway from the floor that would be great. Is that what this movie shows pretty much?
