clutch grabbing

84,000 miles Tj sport 4.0 5 speed manual. I was trying to teach my daughter to drive a stick over at the rodeo grounds dirt parking lot. She did good but it was a lot of slippin and droppin. On the way home I was driving and starting off in first gear I could hardly get it to not grab/buck. First I thought the clutch was over heated but it's doing it again today.

Will this go away or am I pretty close to needing a new clutch ?? Thanks.

Maybe there's just a rough spot on the clutch disk that will go away after a couple more days of driving. If it doesn't, a good complete replacement disk kit made by Luk is only $140 ($150?) from Dial-A-Clutch - Your LuK Clutch Kit Specialist

When you have a choice, buy American.
