I couldnt find the answer anywhere so i will ask it.

In my car when i try to do a burnout standstill my gearbox will just rev out and not kick the rear tyres. It use to but has recently stopped, but use to easily smoke up the rears.
The engine has got about 240,xxxkms i was wondering if its time for a rebuild.
