when accelerating, my rpm guage climbs to 4000 pretty quick then seems to get stuck and the engine seems to lag too for a second or so, then it gets back on it...it usually happens in second gear, not saying thats the only time, but thats mainly when i notice it...any suggestions?

which model car is it?

Does it feel like the clutch is slipping?

the clutch feels fine, it just kinda gets stuck in the middle of the tach at about 4000

by stuck i meant the engine's sound and the needle
not the clutch

I'd check the throttle plate and linkage.

Is it time for a tuneup?

I've only had it for a few months, so im not sure when the last complete tune up was...I have done the scheduled maintainance, but maybe ill take it in and have someone look at it
