    Question Clutch stinks...

    Hi,

    I have following issue with my Vectra C, Z18XER motor: after stopping and turning engine off, when I get out, clutch stinks. I drove it easily, didn't get to more then 2500 rpm's, etc. - but it stinks after every drive.

    What could be reason? Is clutch at the end of its life? What could be the problem? Did you have similiar case till now?

    I thought first at breaks, but rims are ice-cold after drive.

    Thanks in advance.

    Best regards.

    Your clutch is slipping and on its way out better start finding a replacement

    you sure its clutch and not a binding brake?

    rims can still be cold with a binding brake.

    The only option seems to be to take it to local garage and check exact source of this smell.

    On my previous cars, even when clutch is at the end of its life, it didn't smell.

    Best regards.
