    dont ride the clutch would be a great start, that is probably whats happening, it gets hot then sticks

    try not riding the clutch at all and that will tell u if you need another clutch


    also pound on the car WOT in first gear and if the rpm's go up and you're not really going anywhere/ they come down after being at wot , then u would need a new clutch

    i was actually thinking that was the prob. you need to update it to the 01-02 model...and do the drill mod and of course drain the fluid..and i bet it will work as good as new.

    Nope...don't bother with an 01-02 model. Mine has been doing the same thing. You gotta pump it a few times to get it going again, but once you get moving it's ok. Rush hour traffic drives me insane. My peddle sticks almost constantly. Been debating on a new clutch too, but don't know if I need it all, or the slave, or what. Kinda just keeping my fingers crossed that it holds until I can afford a new one.
