    Post Can the clutch be causing my issues?

    My jato 3.3 has been giving me issues lately... making a whining sound when is moving. So i looked a little further into the sound today. i believe its coming from the clutch. If there is something wrong with the clutch would it immediately stop my engine if i gave it BARELY any gas? I can get it to run and start up very easy. but as soon as i give any slight throttle it conks out.

    last week i was having trouble with it conking out while driving if i gave it throttle. is this the same issue? At first i thought maybe it was a tuning issue... but i couldn't even get it to roll 5 feet today.

    Yep I'd take that clutch apart and see. Could be a broken spring or two.
