    Good Afternoon,
    I have a question regarding my 1991 Volkswagen Vanagon with 2wd manual transmission with a 2001 VW Jetta 1.9L TDI ALH engine swap with a rebuilt transmission using a 4.57 Ring and Pinion (sigh, I know that’s a handful). I have had some issues with the transmission slipping. I upgraded my clutch to a heavy duty SouthBend Stage 1 HD clutch kit. After doing so, it was still occasionally having a similar issue with RPMs jumping +/- 500 rpms and leveling back. My mechanic replaced the clutch cylinder which was a good fix about 5k miles ago. Do you have any thoughts on any possible reasons for the occasional slippage?
    Thanks, Matt
