So I finally hit 21,000 miles on my 06 4.0 6er...and I think my clutch may be going bad. I used to do a lot of city driving, and my clutch was getting a little soft. I changed jobs (which explains why I'm not on very much anymore, I'm always working) and now I'm doing all highway driving. My clutch hardened and put a smile on my face. But now it's getting soft again. One things for sure though, now that I get to open 'er up on the highway a little...my engine seems to be running much more efficient...so that I'm happy about. I won't be extremely heart broken about the clutch going bad, it's still under warranty...but it would be a little disheartening with a clutch going bad after only 21,000 miles. Any thoughts?

if your really riding the clutch maybe its bad

Don't ride the clutch. First 3 years/36,000 miles isn't bumper to bumper? Even so I bought the extended powertrain warranty which does include clutch.

My buddie's sister had a clutch go bad. Along with a few other things...so she sold it. But they did replace everything that went bad.

you could check it out the fingers on the pressure plate or the springs in the plate may possibly be bad or have gone bad
it is akward though as my clutch lasted 7yrs no problem

I mean at first I may have been riding clutch because it's a new car and had to get used to it. I don't really race at all..maybe once every other tank of gas. Like I said I did a lot of city driving...stop and go. But my foot is off the clutch whenever possible. So that being said..that's where I'm at. I appreciate all the input...I was just seeing what the problem might be. But it's off to bed...early rise for another long day at work.
