Question about 2009 Porsche 911

1 Answer

Burned clutch I burned the clutch on my 6-speed manual today. Did i damage it? Burning smell is awful, still lingers. Also, do I need to depress both clutch and brake pedal when starting the car? I had trouble tonight; car groaned and would not move in reverse; handbrake was released.

Why are shifts noisy with burning smell?


You do not say whether it is auto or manual, but I assume manual, and by the sounds of it the clutch is slipping due to wear.

There is a test you can do. Start the engine, put it in 3rd gear, apply the foot brake, and let the clutch out. The engine should promptly stall, and if not, you need a replacement clutch.

Hard to move gear shift 6 speed manual


That smell is your clutch material burning up from the engine reving and the clutch being partially engaged. When a clutch gets that hot a few things happen, the clutch disk material wears down giving less grab and the pressure plate overheats causing warpage, erratic engagement, slippage and weakening of the metal spring or flanges that apply pressure to the clutch pack. The clutch might be damaged, your (or the previous owners) driving habits may be wearing it at an accelerated rate or there could be a master/slave cylender issue.

Gears arent going and no acceleration and burning smell


You need to have a look at your clutch. The burning smell is the clutch slipping.

After changing thermosat car is now smoking a lillte from the driver side radiator area


Smoking where.? tail pipe end.?
over heats, when, moving at 60mph
or only stopped.?
if that smoke is during a hot running motor, and is steam
the head gasket blew (or worse)
oil smoke burnt lingers a long time, steam goes away fast like tea pot.
smoke smells like burned oil, steam smells disgusting sweet due to
the coolant is 1/2 Glycol.
over heating has many reasons.
only stopped?, bad rad, bad pump, bad stat, bad fan clutch.(or elect fan)
fails to over heat moving, usually is bad fan (action)
steam at tail is coolant burning.

2000 BMW 323CI clutch smell


The smell of a burned clutch is one that permeates the car for quite sometime after the incident. It may take as long as two weeks for the smell to alleviate.

Meanwhile if the car is shifting normally and not slipping I would say the clutch is ok.
