Cooking a clutch
Couldn't make it up an off-camber wet, muddy hill yesterday full of roots. Tried 30 times. Then my jeep started smoking - a lot. Smelled like death. I've had my clutch hot and smelling, but never to the point where it looked like cheech & chongs bus yesterday.
Shut it down. let it cool for a while, still smoked some. drove home. shifted okay - but a little grabby.
My question - is it done? Do I need to replace it or the flywheel? It was the first time I had this happen - so I am a little worried.
