MY F'N Cluth blew today
So I shifted into 1st as I was getting off the freeway and I felt a pop and smelt a burning. I could'nt shift after that. Car turns on just fine but doesnt shift...I was told chances are my clutch is gone. Anyone know a ballpark of how much this is gonna cost? 2000 Mitsubishi eclipse in Cali...

Depends if they gotta take out the engine to drop the transmission or not. My guess is yes, and thats about right for all new cars. Hours alone is whats going to kill you, not the part cost.

i mean what do you think price wise its gonna cost? I was told anywhere from 400-700

Youre looking more in the 500-850 range.

you shifted into 1st as you were getting off the freeway????!!!!!! thats abou the easiest way to ruin your clutch. NEVER want to shift into anything past 2nd unless youre starting off. Easiest ways to wear out your clutch are to 1. ride the clutch
2. shift into 1st from any speed other than a dead start
3. start your car from 2nd gear repeatedly instead of 1st.

When you say ride the clutch you mean hold the clutch down while decreasing speed? I just learned how to drive a clutch 2 years ago and don't know the rules...hehe

my only advice is not to buy a mitsubishi again hahahaha. they are poor quality like most chrystler products.. as far as price you are looking at anywhere from 400-1200$

Man, I was about to buy some presents for myself too. Oh well I just paid 95 bucks for a hour of diagnostics....they will give me the full quote later today. Anyone know a site that has info on how to properly treat your manual tranny? Heh seriously I think I must be too hard on it.
