Clutches...talk to me
I think mine might be knackered! My musings started on Monday, when upon arrival at the cinema (after driving in convoy) my landladys other half said "well one of you has got a knackered clutch we could smell it at the traffic lights" However I should explain...Joe overtook both me and wayne, because i couldn't move due to OAP's crossing in front of me. It was then that wayne could smell it.
So anyway here goes
2.4, 56,000 miles
My bite point is right at the top of the pedal.. (which would seem weird anyway..wouldn't it be a self adjusting clutch these days?)
I did a test, and hammered it coming home out of a junction tonight...guess what..foot to the floor, it jumped up to 2300 rpm, then back down to 1800 before climbing again. Acceleration in 5th and 6th is now non existent. but the rev's aren't running away...just feels like theres no power...
Also I can't help but this might explain my previous issue of put the foot down, the boost climbs then falls, then climbs, then falls repeatedly until you hit 2500k
What do we think...and how long does it take to drop the engine out...i've got the e-learn manual.
