    Re: Clutch slipping issues

    I've always kidded my wife I can't change her oil. The car never cools down long enough to do it. Some exaggeration there, but not a lot.

    Years ago, she went away for a week with her mother. Her car sat idle. When she returned, it wouldn't run. It coughed, spit fire, backfired, but didn't have power enough to move. After days of trying to go to work, and figure out her car, I tried one more time. A big backfire blew charred acorns out the exhaust.

    The muffler had been new with lifetime warranty. They gave me a new one. It was utterly packed with acorns.
    An optimist is usually wrong, and when the unexpected happens is unprepared. A pessimist is usually right, when wrong, is delighted, and well prepared.

    My buddy said it was filled mostly with bits of carpet padding, some carpet fibers, and a little bit other natural fibers. Amazing what crazy places Micky and friends will congregate.

    Looks like maybe when it was started with the clutch disengaged, which is a normal procedure, some nesting was forced between the fingers and the housing by centrifugal force probably resulting in increased free play and decreased clutch engagement.

    I bet it has a nice aroma to it, especially warmed up from the clutch moving...

    Was it really necessary to pull the engine to service the clutch!
    If yes then let me know what vehicle it is so I don't ever buy one!
