clutch slipping.. and re-biting!!
I noticed about 3 weeks ago that the clutch in my 156 1.9 mjet started slipping in 4th and fifth when I dropped the boot to overtake... going from about 2500 revs.
So I did what anyone would and went to alfa dealer for new clutch, assuming I was on borrowed time and the clutch was worn out.
Thing is, the Alfa dealer said the clutch was fine and he couldn't make it slip!! Its not any worse now and I've put about 1200 miles on the car since. I commute in it every day. It still slips the same. It's no worse and no better?!!?
I would have thought, if the clutch was burning out it would be gone by now, and if not, it would be a hell of a lot worse with each day.
One other point is that when it starts to slip it the revs will jump about 500 to 700 rpm but then it bits again. Any suggestions? Is there an adjustment on these clutches that's not self adjusting?
