clutch died?

i knew it was coming. but it came on my way back from school. sucks ass. i guess it's the clutch at least. i don't smell clutch, the engine revs up but it doesn't pull nearly as hard as it should (mainly in 1's and 2nd gears.) I guess if i drive it more the clutch becomes more worn, then begins that terrible smell? Right now it's still pretty drivable - it just acts like the car is loaded down with weight. Sound familiar to anyone?

i'm just asking because i want to make sure it's not my transaxle. the tranny does make a clunking noise every time it's thrown into gear - but it's always done that. there aren't any grinding noises or anything.

input please!

Clutch is dying

time to replace - looks like yours is wearing out rather than the rubber disk destroying itself

Don't know why a clutch job on a 968 should cost so much. The 968 has a two piece drive shaft and a large access hole in the bottom of the bell housing. Don't have to drop the trans or pull the torq tube back.

Could this be the cost of the special clutch?

Depends if you need a flywheel or not. Driving any Porsche that has a dual-mass flywheel with a slipping clutch is not a good idea. If the face of the flywheel is heat damaged you will need a new one. That's where the $2400 quote came from. The $1400 is without the new flywheel.
All prices depend on the local labor rate and what parts are included in the estimate, so unless like to like is compared the price means nothing.
