clutch slipping, soaked in diesel
I put in a chip from php about 6 weeks ago. AWESOME. right away in horsing around i noticed the clutch slipping in high gear, high torque situations. top two gears at first, now also in the the next lower gear. throughout, i've not been able to make it slip in stock setting. I don't doubt it's time for a new one, 135k on the stock clutch, but i've been troubleshooting an oil leak too. it suddenly dawned on me it was coming from the valley and has soaked the bellhousing and presumably the clutch. turns out it was actually my drain**** o rings leaking fuel, fixed it today.
my question, if my clutch is soaked in diesel, now that i've stopped the leak, will it dry out and function properly or is the damage done?
