Clutch, maybe slave cylinder

Recommended Posts

Ok, first thing, very easy to check, is there any brake fluid in the reservoir (frunk)?


I would guess 1.) you have air in the brake/clutch system, 2.) your slave cylinder failed, or 3.) you have failed clutch parts (transmission has to be removed and parts replaced).

Say about 2 hours trans in, 2 hours trans out, 1 hour replace clutch parts, new clutch kit retail $700-800 (450 ebay).

5 hours @ say $125 hr yes 1500 is in ballpark.

If they've done IMS before sure have that done too, especially if yours is a single row car.

83K on a flywheel is a lot of miles. If the flywheel surface is really worn out, your new clutch may not last as long. Resurfacing dual mass flywheels is not something most shops will do. That being said, if the flywheel springs check out and the surface is not terrible then I can't see why you couldn't keep using it (aside from the new clutch disc not lasting as long).
