    Curious if anyone can shed some light on what I can fix with the
    following. When I accelerate from a standstill and get around
    25-35mph the engine slips and the rpms go up big time. If i
    accelerate faster this generally doesnt happen. Any thoughts?

  2. As you probably know, engines don't slip, clutches and automatic
    transmissions slip.

    If it is a manual shift car, then either the clutch pads are shot or the
    tension on the plates is too low or both. This problem is agrevated by
    people who ride the clutch (leave their foot on the clutch when they are
    not using it),

    If it is an automatic, the first thing to check is the transmission
    fluid level. If that is OK, the it may be bad news. Loss of fluid is
    normally do to a leak. Most people see the wet spot on the ground where
    it is leaking before they notice slippage.

    I am not sure, but I think that all XCs are automatics.
