  • I broke my car again

    After 17 years of ownership I was under the impression that I have broken my car in every manner possible. Most part have been replaced once, some parts have broken twice. Some parts have broken many times,

    One the way to lunch last week the clutch stopped working.

    It was not slipping it just stopped working. The clutch fluid did not seem to be low. The pedal went up and down normally but no clutch function. I think I am on clutch number 6 or 7, but this particular failure has never happened before.

    I drove it a short way to find a good parking lot.

    Its in the shop.

    I will update you later,

      Time for a nice reliable silver car.

      Will be watching this thread to see what happened. Hope it is something simple and inexpensive.

          It was still on a lift on Saturday. Was wondering what you did to it this time.

            I heard back from the shop today.

            I fused the clutch to the flywheel in a manner that they had to chisel the clutch off the fly wheel.

            So the plan is to replace the clutch and pressure plate.

            While the transmission is off the synchromesh will be replaced and any other tranny problems fixed.

            a little this a little that and she will be back on the road soon,

              I may have achieved the goal of breaking the car in a manner that has never been achieved before.

                  Nice to know your red car can be first at something.

                    Any guesses as to how this was achieved?

                      That is certainly a new one for me. Were you using a strange clutch material?

                      I look at this like stepping on the brakes and having the pads fuse to the rotor.

                        You might be replacing a flywheel too if they really had to chisel it off.

                          I have been using an aftermarket clutch and pressure plate from clutch masters. This particular clutch has been on the car about a year. I was starting aggressively from a stop at a light and it happend in first gear. I was not drag racing I was making a left turn.

                          I plan lane to resurface the flywheel or use a different one. I have a driving style that seems to eat clutches. Also eats transmissions and many other drive train parts.
