Based on a recent question I asked, I'm looking to have a shop replace the clutch in my 2008 Mazda 3i manual transmission with ~130000 miles on it.
Before I do, is there anything else I should / could check on the car, that would be an indication it is a bad idea to repair the car at all? Essentially, I don't want to replace the clutch only to have another big ticket item fail in 4 months, so if an inspection could see signs of that item about to fail, that'd be great to know. But I don't know what to inspect.
At the same time, is there anything that might be good to replace at the same time as the clutch, given what will already be taken apart for the clutch job?
