5 speed MT clutch not slipping?
Posted 09 February 2005 - 12:36 PM
About a month ago I posted my clutch was slipping and the RPMs flaring on just normal acceleration. Since the weather is just a litttle warmer the clutch hasn't been slipping hardly at all lately. I added Lucas transmission additive shortly after it started but I don't know if I can fully attribute the less slippage to Lucas or not. I was calling the dealer to price a new clutch install but maybe now I can put it off until i hit 250k miles. Any thoughts

Why would a transmission additive affect the clutch?
Is that your original clutch?

Hopefully I can "nurse" it till the spring. Want to trade up to a newer (95-96) OBW with a 2.2 or an Impreza/OBS.

If it ain't broken, don't fix it!
Opening an engine/gearbox, especially one that has racked up the miles, always involves a little risk. What might break during disassembly? What other things will you find wrong with it?
