    is my clutch bad?

    I went to launch my car the other day. And the motor was revving and I wasn't going like it should have and all of a sudden it started to pull hard at the end of first through the rest of the gears. Then I smelled something like it was burning. Ever since if o take off a little rough I get that smell. The clutch is the stock oem clutch and has 64k on it. I'm not too sure if the clutch is completely gone any ideas on wat I can do I'm kinda tight with money right now. Also wat kind of clutch should I buy.

    to check if your clutch is going back, while driving in lets 3rd gear @ 30mph, hit the gas & see if your RPMs jump. if your RPMs jump but your car doesnt go anywhere (physically accelerate) that's usually a surefire sign that your clutch is done.


    as far as what to replace it with- you didnt give us any info about your car at all.

    if youre stock or at least stage 2ish- an OEM replacement will be fine. (do a search for exedy)
