I did a search, but couldn't come to a conclusion.

I just bought a 95 and was learning stick on it. Got the hang of it in a short while(5 mins). Then all of a sudden, the clutch isn't gripping all that well (supposedly replaced recently) and a screech started whenever the clutch pedal was pressed.

The thing is, both of these started at roughly the same time, and showed NO signs earlier. I did smell a slight burning odor from the clutch? afterwards, though.

Didn't feel as if I was doing anything to put extra stress on these as I got the hang of it pretty early. The only possible thing I can think of is that I was shifting into first at ~2250 RPM. But anything lower than that would cause the motor to halt.

I'd appreciate any help. Thanks in advance.

-Dave
