Worn clutches...

Hello,

So I was thinking. People say that your clutches can be worn out just like brake pads and etc. So say for example that my clutch is worn out, wouldn't that give me a chance to get some aftermarket clutch set?

So say that my clutch have been worn, what is the best price/performance parts can I purchase to replace the worn out clutch?

Thank you.
Alex

The installation for these, easy?

Which one would you recommend? And when do you know if you clutch is worn out to a point of replacement?

of you can put it in top gear at a stop and try to go, and the engine just revs then the clutch is gone... if the car stalls then the clutch has a little life left at least...

also try putting it in top gear going about 30 and floor it...

if your RPMs go up and your car doesnt accelerate then the clutch is gone...

you can feel it slip...


and i wouldnt recomment DIY unless you have a lift and air tools...

i wouldnt recommend wut spaztikid recommended cz ull ruin ur clutch like that in less than a few seconds.
if you put it on 6th gear and try to drive off from 0mph, ull burn the clutch in a matter of 5 seconds completely. you can notice when clutch is wearing out. the ignition point for the clutch will change, ur revs will drop lower when shifting, ur clutch will slip. ur car revs but the car doesnt go while driving.
as for clutches, there are many different ones like listed. it just depends wut you need it for racing, ...
changing clutch isnt like changing ur oil. you have to unbolt the tranny off the engine, take the tranny down, replace the clutch, put everything back together. you need jack/stands, power tools recommended. long work.

OO ok, cool, have not tried out those suggestions yet, haha.

But what do you guys mean by "ur clutch will slip."?

If I just use the car for daily driving, which clutch is best?

slip means doesnt hold. for example when driving 15 mph on 1st gear, you revs will just high and ur car wont accelerate like you pushed the clutch in and pressing gas. then all of the sudden revs go lower and miles increase

dont get the blitz, very expensive and has very loud clutch chatter. if you just want a replacement clutch just get a stock one, that or TRD

Get the act clutch thumbsup As far as clutch burning out I just had this happen, its simpler then above stuff, if you put just the weight of your foot on the pedal and barley touch and it jumps 500+rpms before coming down your clutch is screwed, mine I could jump it from 2200 to 7800 with a little pressure on the pedal
