    juddering when pulling away

    i think my clutch is on its way out and was wondering if it would be slowing me down any as the car seems a little slower than when i bought it

    anyone know?

    cheers

    If your clutch is on its way out it will slip, your car shouldn't be any slower.. My clutch judders a bit more than is normal I'm sure.. but i'm told its because my flywheel is slightly loose. (I had an engine change a few thousand miles ago and a new clutch fitted). Have you noticed it slipping at all mate?

    Mine judders all the time, i had a new clutch fitted 4 days after i bought the car as it packed up, that was 2 years ago and around 20k.

    TBH though i think mine mght be the engine mounts on the out, well the rubber bushes

    Could be a friction plate problem, or it has become contaminated with oil.

    You'd bloody know about it if your flywheel was loose.
