    can you say clutch slipping, the tranny is right under the intercooler, or you could have oil dripping on it too, causeing the smoke and slippage but more than likely just you need a new clutch how many miles you have on it..

    If the clutch is slipping and you are seeing/smelling "smoke" suspect either the clutch itself and/or the motor's rear oil seal leaking onto the clutch. In either case I'd have someone look at the car locally.

    I know it's been awhile but what ever happened. Did you find that your clutch was worn or that your clutch wore out faster?

    How much smoke was it? Must have been enough smoke to cause you to worry about it.

    What did you end up doing. Or did you end up doing nothing at all and the car and clutch still seems to function?

    Thanks
