Get your car rolling at like 2.5krpm in 4th and then floor it. I think that's how you test for slipping clutch.

I thought the serpentine belt only drives the accessory stuff like alternator. Why would that affect how the car performs?

Alternator provides the electricity for your ignition system, ecu, etc. Kinda important.:chuckles:
I mean if the car is running and has electricity. Unless the belt is slipping so much that it's dropping the voltage at the plugs then I guess that'd cause the car to be slower :shrugs:

that's what the tC is.
Nope the tC is a Camry coupe. tC has the Camry engine. Corolla has the 1zz.

It's not like a light bulb that remains on dimly as power drops.:laugh:


If it's below a certain voltage, it just won't turn on/stay on.

The tC weighs more than 3000lbs right? And the Corolla was around 2600lbs.

So we agree that a slipping belt is not the problem with Oscar's car :shrugs:
