I have a 2009 toyota matrix with 150k on it. I bought it used but I believe the clutch is the original
Yesterday it felt very soft. I could slip it in 5th with full throttle, and it wasn't grabbing when shifting. I figured it's time for a new clutch and these are the signs.
This morning, it feels completely different. It grabs harder at starts and in shifts, and I couldn't slip it on the highway ramp in 5th.
Being a 2009 I assume it's a hydraulic self adjusting clutch - is this correct? If so, what could be going on here - can a cold morning put that much life back into a clutch?
