Speakign of clutches below, what sorts of things will kill a clutch? I drive manual but am not really familiar with the inner workings of a clutch.
Also, what sorts of tell-tale signs can I look for in one that is nearing the end of its life-cycle?
Does normal everyday driving contribute significantly to wear? UMP mentioned "brisk" driving. Is that like launching off the line of just shifting quickly? I've know "slipping" your clutch is bad, but don't know the reasons...
If anyone has some info, lemme know. And how long should I expect it to last? Thanks!
John L.
