2008 Toyota Corolla 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 28600 miles
Assuming I never ride the clutch. If the clutch in my car 'burns out' at 28,000 km, what else could cause that?
I never ride the clutch and have had no problems with my car until yesterday I came to a stop at a stop sign, and when I went to continue I had next to no power. I immediately pulled over and could smell a faint burning smell.
The car was towed to my nearest Toyota dealer and they are saying I must ride my clutch to cause it to be burned out like it is.
I don't, ever. There is a little foot rest by the clutch I use when I am driving to keep my foot.
Also, why have I never smelled it before or had any problems with the transmission until yesterday. It seemed to be sudden.
And it was just in for maintenance last month and they test drove it and said everything was a-okay.
Thanks for any thoughts. Donation will go to anyone who offers a problem that turns out to be the real one. If in the end none is found I will award based on which I think is the best. (Unscientific, I know. Sorry)
