98 MT Integra LS Clutch Issue
 
I recently bottomed out my car in a parking lot. I had to realign the exhaust after that, but also noticed my clutch slipping on the highway. I was going 55 MPH, but hit the next sign, 60 or 65 MPH, and tried to make a pass on the left. My clutch wasn't catching, and shot up to 4500RPM's before it caught.

I have no problem driving in the city. The clutch hasn't been slipping in lower RPM's, just when over 3000 and trying to accelerate from that point.

I don't know much about clutches. What do y'all think the issue may be?

If it were me, I'd take it to a trusted shop.

I actually thought of doing that. Just need to find a good place to safely do it.

@tekneek, I am taking it to a shop a friend of mine knows the owner that specializes in Honda/Acura on Thursday.

I just want to get it fixed because I want to drive from VA to Western New York in about a week.

Thanks for the replies guys!
