In my experience you have to give it a tad more gas than idle revs to get the clutch engaged without killing it. Like I said, it's more mass to move. I shiver at the thought of slipping the clutch for any length of time, but in the equation of clutch release vs throttle, you can't really wait to apply any gas until it bites, not most of the time anyway.If you clutch slips with the pedal all the way out you need a new clutch. Period. If you smelled it while accelerating with the clutch partially out the you are being too hard on it.
WOT switch yes, most everything newer than 2000 has that feature.Very briefly, is there a AC cut-off switch on the compressor when we mash the go pedal?
Well then, I guess we will have to wear it out before our 100,000 mile warranty is up.WOT switch yes, most everything newer than 2000 has that feature.
Anyhow, from first hand experience - this clutch isn't gonna last long even if you only do highway driving. The disc is extremely thin, yes the brand new one, and doesn't have hardly any room for wear.

From my reading of the warranty literature, I think a few clutch parts are covered out to 12 mo, but after that you're on your own... and I don't think the clutch pad was included in that. I know I'll be quite disappointed if my clutch wears out quickly, but I'll just need to set aside some money for the possibility of that and other automobile fixin's.Well then, I guess we will have to wear it out before our 100,000 mile warranty is up.
Necroposting to point out for future readers that you don't actually know what you're talking about.Like I said, learn how to drive a clutch. Don't rev the engine then let out the clutch and slip it it until motion occurs. You are burning it. Instead, let out the clutch until it starts to bite, then give it gas. Minimal slippage, smooth takeoff.
