i'm not super familiar with clutches. drove one of my XT6's that i never drive today. push the clutch pedal in and after a little bit of movement it gets really loose and goes to the floor. put it in gear and let the clutch pedal up and it catches really high. so it needs a new clutch and i have all the parts. my question is that when i used to drive manual trans XT6's (i drive all auto's now) the clutch would go out and start slipping. why does this one seem to grab crisp and not slip? what's the difference?

I had a 93 golf that was the same way. it never slipped so there was really no problem

I would try to adjust the cable 1st before I tackled a clutch job, just to be sure.

adjust what? where it catches, take up slack? i've pulled transmissions and replaced auto trans and motors...but not in manual trans so i'm not familiar with the clutch adjustment. though i have the FSM. fairly straight forward i assume?

its a matter of adjust the nuts on the end of the cable on the clutch arm on the transmission.
