Re: 4KCSQ and Clutch
I have an '87 4kcsq with just short of 155,000 miles. It goes in on Wed
for a new clutch. Everyone I talk to tells me that because it is a
hydraulic clutch there are no adjustments possible. Mine started
slipping under acceleration about 8 months ago. First in 5th, then 4th,
now its slipping in 3rd gear under heavy acceleration. Probably should
have replaced it last year but I was too stubbron (= cheap) to do so.
Its starting to get expensive. LAst month it got new rear struts, ball
joints and lower tie rods. This month a clutch. Oh well, still cheaper
then car payments and the A4 1.8T is nowhere to be seen.
