Thermostat swaped & now the clutch judders
I just chnaged my thermostat on my my JTS as I the temperature was always low and I had low MPG. That all appears to be sorted.
However, I went to move off yesterday for the first time and the clutch was juddering when I changed gear. As the gearbox is below the thermostat i presume the drained coolant has landed on it. However how can that cause the clutch to slip?? The clutch linkage might be there I suppose? I am tempted to poor warm water in the area to removed the coolant, as coolant doesn't evaporate. Or carb cleaner? The problem does near enough disapear when the car warms up though.
Any other thoughts?
