    Clutch slip when cold td42ti

    Has anyone ever had issues with clutch slightly slipping on take off when the car is cold? Once it warms up its fine.

    Is the slave cylinder disengaging properly. A forum member recently had trouble with the fluid being compromised and thickened by the heat from the exhaust. There was a heat shield missing.

    Is there any oil dripping from the bottom of the bell housing?

    Also make sure the fork is operating correctly.

    Not sure mate but you've given me some idea where to start.

    I wouldn't have thought the heat from exhaust would be doing harm as it seems to be working normal once hot.. its when its cold it is the issue

    You will need to take a look while some one presses the clutch while it is cold. The slave cylinder rod should retract enough to let the fork make it to its rest position.

    Try bleeding the clutch fluid. It will give you a starting point and might get rid of any air or bad fluid.

    Over time the heat from the exhaust, especially one modified to 3" will 'cook' the fluid.
