However, last weekend, same scenario. Hot temp. and slow traffic, so my clutch failed yet again. This time, I had to be pushed about 1/4 mile over the border, where I had to wait over an hour and a half. This time, it didn't get better, and eventually I had to have my car towed over 150 miles back to my church. When we got there and the guy took it off the towbed, it worked fine. Again, the dealer is telling me that unless it is doing what I described when I bring it in, there's not much they can do to help me, and my warranty is about to expire soon.
Now the fluid is dark, and smells burnt, and I just recently had a 'major service' at Nissan where they were supposed to inspect/change all fluids where necessary. I can't imagine it burnt like it did in one episode at the border. I keep insisting that something's WRONG w/the car, but they blow me off like I don't know what I'm talking about.
Someone told me it could be my slave cylinder, or that I need something installed to cool the clutch fluid. Another person thought I might be somehow getting air in the lines. If so, how could that be if the line is sealed?
Any advice you can offer would be appreciated!
have the same problem?
