Update on 17000 mile clutch slipage
My clutch started slipping at like 17,500 miles and I resolved to take it in for warrenty repair the following weekend. So all week I treated her sooo gingerly and I didn't slip after the first day (got like 27 mpg too keeping my rpms so low)
well after the week was over I drove it to the shop on saturday. On the way I decided to make sure I could still reproduce the clutch slipping problem. I used to just have to gun it in 4th gear and the rpms would surge then the clutch would catch and I would be on my way.
by the time I got to the shop I still had not reproduced the problem, it was no longer slipping. I have been driving like normal since then and it has not slipped once... What gives? was it cold weather? (it does not get colder than 20 degrees here in texas)
I imagine it will get bad again, but I would just like to get it nipped in the bud
