    Is it a loss of drive or loss of power? The two things are very different.

    If the revs stay up then its a loss of drive, if the revs go down then its a loss of power.

    I'm presuming its a manual from the way you state "knock it in neutral" - in which case you are looking at a clutch slipping.

    It could be a slipping clutch. Or if it's been converted to FWD, it could be the splined link in the gearbox.
