I think I'm having problems with the clutch also. However my problem isnt really with grinding the gears, however it seems as if my clutch isnt releasing. For example if I floor it from a stop the car acts like I still have the clutch somewhat pushed in even though its not and if i try to give it more gas its very sluggish, and I can smell the clutch. It really only happens when I floor it from a stop and it doesnt happen all the time but it does happen a majority of the time. Ive tried launching from 0 rpms and at 2k rpms and its the same thing, which really sucks. From a roll when i floor it (anywhere between 25-45) it flies but off the line it is having this problem. What do you guys think this is? Should I take it in? Do you think they'll give me a rental car if i take it in or am I going to be without a car? What should I tell the service department? Should I tell them I'm floring it off the line and this is happening or should I just tell them that the clutch seems to be sticking when I'm driving it? Any and all your guys help would be appreciated, thanks.
