right my 2010 plate with EGR off map had started to experience occasional clutch slip under hard driving, for example coming out of a round about in 3rd or 4th then flooring it from about 2k revs, wouldnt happen every time but was becoming more common.
So i put back my standard map last night took the car for a spin and couldnt seem to get it too slip...
What i want to do is know i can replicate the slip so i can go back to honda and get it changed under warranty

i know people say goto a hill put car in 5th at 2k revs and floor it, does that mean from a standstill?

Doesn't even need to be a hill, this just puts more load on the clutch so it's more likely to slip

Any of the higher gears 4th,5th or 6th; drive along at just under 2000rpm then put your foot to the floor

If your clutch is slipping it will rev up to approx 3000rpm without any/much actual acceleration of the car

good luck :)

Thats what it was doing with the map on, now its back to standard it doesnt seem to want to slip as it doesnt have the same power!!....
maybe i just need to to have a heavier foot!

i take it the car was undamaged then?
?? was that to me??
i just been out and tried it and the standard map just accelerates no sign of clutch slip, will try the elite stage one with egr ON and see if that causes anything... standard map feels so tame! on certain roundabouts i drive all the time i was flooring it at the apex and whereas with the Stage 2 egr off map id be starting to break traction and accerating at a vast rate, i was still able to sit comfortably on the apex with full traction accelerating at a steady pace haha... :)

From a standstill put your car into 5th gear and try to pull away, if the car doesnt stall and starts moving then your clutch is more than likely slipping already or about to start... thats what I was once told anyway...

Sounds daft to me (no offense meant mate!)
Releasing the clutch in 5th while not moving is going to put alot of strain all over the place, not saying you're going to snap a shaft, but it's not healthy :rolleyes:

If you can't replicate the slip on OEM map then the clutch is on it's way out but not quite there yet, the added power just highlights this :(

Used car dealer :facepalm:
I don't even let them look at my car; let alone give me 'tips'! haha (or offers!)
(Currently working at EH Ford with a big Used department)

The best way to check for slip is mentioned above, it's not too much (sudden) strain on any components and assuming you dont hold it flat out and promote slip alot it wont cause TOO much damage to the clutch/flywheel, obviously it will wear the plates down over time more prematurly
