maybe your e-brake locked up slightly, or it could be the gas you put in. or maybe your running a little lean.
WD, that's the self-adjuster mechanism inside the rear caliper piston, right? I thought that would self-adjust whether you're going forward or back.WD40 said:Clutch and brakes (burning) are very similar in smell. It's hard to tell the difference.
Course, if you smell it at the back of the car and not the front, that definitely points to the rear brakes.
I mean it started to do it after I punched it a little not hard just a little 2nd gear run through.
That sounds like clutch to me.
Watch the tach next time.
If the tach goes up, and your speedo stays steady, that's a sure sign of a slipping clutch.
You can adjust the ebrake by pulling up on it while backing up.
I just coast backwards down our driveway, and pull on the brake hard to come to a complete stop.
Usually, that'll give me about 2 less clicks to get it to grab after that.
