Re: clutch repair recommendations
Like Patric said. Test it proper. Get up to highway speed in 5th gear (4,000 RPM or so) then slam on the throttle. If it slips then you need to consider a fix. Slippage in the lower gears is usually a function of acceleration before the clutch is fully engaged. Never exceed 1500 RPM when launching from a dead stop in first until the clutch is fully engaged. Any higher RPM work on a feathered clutch will cause subsequent slippage in the next gear. Just the nature of a dry clutch. Oh about $2,500 and up at the dealer and about $600 in parts is you do it yourself and replace EVERYTHING.
