burning a little oil..

Yes, go with a good synthetic like redline...

Ours puked finally at about 180k miles...

when I asked people on this net last year most had never done
a clutch on thier 4000q, but the group was smaller back then.

btw, I had a shop do it for lack of time, it was $700.  Apparently its more
labor intensive to R&R a clutch on a AWD then on a 2wd.
