Sounds more like oil contamination than wear.
Oil won't 'dry', but it will soak deeper into the clutch lining material.MrSifter said:to follow up, i have had the van off the road for about two weeks after the clutch seemed to have gone. Today I went to gently drive it somewhere i could drop the engine and strangely everything seemed fine. I couldn't make the clutch slip if i tried...
Does anyone have a theory on why it was slipping so badly on that trip and now i come to drop the engine it seems perfect??!
sticking pressure plate, lever? oil dried?? wtf?
