I didn't change my clutch when I changed my gearbox and the clutch must have oil on/in it from when my other gearbox died, so when ever I push it hard like over 6psi it just slips unless I back off and let it grip then I can floor it but.
Any ideas on what can be done without getting a new clutch? I was thinking of flushing it with kerosene, would this damage the clutch? it might get in the throw-out bearing :(

If it has to come out I may as well get a new clutch plate :/
why? if you can just clean it and save yourself $150+ why wouldnt you do that, if the clutch otherwise is fine. [I mean, if its beat to hell anyway, then yea get a replacement]. Clutch replacement isnt THAT big of a deal... are you doing your own work?

i know it's still bad....but better a worn seal in a transmission than your rear main seal that can cause other havoc...lol

I'd rather it be the rear main...don't have to take parts of the transmission.

exactly. take off the oil pan [so that you can ensure a good seal] and bam, its cake. done, and done. probably as easy as a throwout bearing replacement.

[at least on the mr2].
