is my clutch gone ? how much it gonna cost?
Dunno-Very strange. Were u idling in heavy traffic for long periods?
That can often cause the clutch to get hot and not be it's best. If it feels ok now, would not worry about it :)
i was at top of long hill and had been in traffic with 4 people in the car , car was full of petrol and was full of people. so yeah i would think its warm , would that make it slip?
If you had been in traffic queing and moving foward bit by bit, the car would be hot, and especially with 4 people in. :)
