Not accelerating normally

When I floor my car it will rev but won't increase much in speed. I know that because sometimes it will actually catch and whip your head back but most of the time it's slowed than a v6. Lol. It makes a high whistling noise when floored. Could that be the vacuum lines? Could I have a leak in one. How would I check that?

What would be wrong with the clutch to do that? It does stall occasionally when braking when the clutch is in if that matters to. At like even 40mph

Yea it sounds like your clutch is slipping. I would look into that first, take your car from a dead stop put it in like fourth and try to go and see if the car stalls or it try's to stay alive.

If it stalls does that mean it's slipping?

Could be, not 100 percent sure. But when the clutch is in like that is the car in gear? Could be slipping back into gear and your not giving it enough gas to keep it going it could stall.

In a manual transmission car, anytime you press the accelerator and RPMs increase but speed does not and the transmission is in gear, a bad clutch is the first thing to suspect. How many miles on your car? A clutch can wear out from high mileage or be very quickly destroyed by incorrect/abusive use.
