I was driving my brother in laws 5 speed 1990 civic. And the car wasn't accelerating so I pull over and see whats wrong. I don't hear anything, but it smells like burnt rubber. Then try and take off again and the car won't go anywhere. It'll rev up, but not move. I need to check the trans fluid levels. But is that sounding like a clutch or transmission? Also I can take my foot off the clutch while it's in gear and the car won't stall out.
