Temporary loss of clutch resistance?

829 Views 11 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Roland07
So on my way to work today, at a balmy 17 degrees f, I grind the crap out of second gear. Not normal. Then I start paying attention to my numb, shivering limbs and realize that my clutch isn't offering up any resistance for 85% of its travel. As I would expect to go along with this, I was having to ride my synchros pretty hard to get into each gear.

While I was listening to my stomach drop at the notion of replacing the clutch myself in this lovely weather, the clutch slowly but surely got it's groove back, and I was clutching and shifting normally by the time I pulled into my office.

...what the what?

Good to know. I'll check the clutch fluid as soon as I can go outside without my corneas crystallizing, and top off if necessary.

I -do- want an excuse to replace my clutch and install an LSD, but I don't have the cash or the weather for it right now!

Catching air?

*takes Focus over some sweet jumps!*

Thanks for your input, gentlemen. I'll put it on the "next summer or until the clutch fails" list. XD
