Joe05GTMT Posted April 25, 2005 Share Posted April 25, 2005 I would like to start a new thread to separate the partial clutch engagement issue from the stinky-clutch issues. I know a number of people have the partial engagement issue, but it's been mixed in with CDV and Clutch-Stench posts. For me the partial engagement is a serious safety concern -- but can't be replicated at will to a dealership. Here is the detailed description of the partial engagement: On a moderately fast start (i.e. rpm over 1k) the clutch pedal decides to come up only half way (same experience you would have if your clutch system suddenly had a hydraulic leak). The result is that the engine will just rev up (until your reflexes back off the throttle) and the car hardly moves. Once you push the pedal back in and let it out again, it returns to normal. The only remaining indication of an issue is the smell. The clutch-stench appears wide spread. I would like to see how wide spread this intermittent partial engagement issue is to build a case to get noticed by SOA (who won't do anything if it can't be replicated by a dealership). Please post if you have the exact symptoms described above. Thanks, Joe Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
