Hey guys here's what happened:

I was driving in 3rd just shifting to 4th and all of a sudden my engine made a strange noise, a bad clutch-y or burnt smell was apparent, and the rpm's fell to 3000 and stayed glued there. I tried braking/pressing the gas... no luck. I tried downshifting.... no luck. It sounded like my engine was dying. Finally I put it in neutral and just braked.... FINALLY some succes. The problem didn't come back since this morning but I'd love to know what the hell happened :confused:

nobody has any clue? The only thing I could thing of was that maybe 4th gear didn't engage completely, but that wouldnt explain why it stayed at 3000 rpm and didnt fall, even when I popped it in neutral and started braking.
