Puzzled: clutch issue
I have an intermittent clutch slip.
It started slipping slightly in October so I drove like a granny for a few days / week.
Then it was ok, wouldn't slip at all, no matter how hard I tried to make it slip.
Three weeks ago it started slipping again so I bought a new clutch and CSC, whilst waiting to order a flywheel I was lift sharing to work so I never drove the car at all for 5 days.
Well yesterday I took her for a spin... Once again, absolutely NO slippage... No matter how hard I try to make it slip under load, to try and justify buying the flywheel and clutch.
Do the 2.4 engines have any known problems with the crank seal and bearing???
Thinking that maybe it's passing some oil and with it sitting for a few days it has dried up giving me a positive bite again...
