Ford Escort

You are accelerating in your ford escort 1.6 16v but your rev counter is going sky high before the acceleration starts why is this?

That sounds like the transmission is "slipping", meaning that

the clutch isn't engaging at the right time, allowing the engine to

race when you're trying to go. If you can't tell that something is

wrong, and just put your foot into the pedal without regard to what

is going on, not only will you end up with a clump of useless metal

where the transmission WAS, you'll also end up with a clump of

useless metal where the ENGINE was.
