Yesterday, when I was trying to get the Jeep parked in a lot of snow (it was the only place available), I had the impression that my clutch was slipping. There was an aufull smell, also (the burnt clutch smell - you know).
It is not the first time that I smelled that. It happened also sometimes when I was pulling others out of snow or on the trail. What's weird is that sometimes it smells, some times it doesn't.
Dos it mean that it needs to be replaced? The Jeep has only 80K miles on it. Is it normal that the clutch wears out so easy (my ex-YJ was 100K miles when I sold it and had no clutch isues whatsoever)?
Is Crown clutch good enough (it is half the price of a Centerforce)?
People report their clutches lasting well over 100k miles even with heavy use and lots of smoking.... are you saying it has the smoking smell when driving normally?? I would be surprised if the surface was not catching even at 80k miles but if you are concerned a new LUK clutch is only about $160....
