Caught in heavy traffic on a steep hill coming home due to a set of temporary traffic lights. The hold up was about 1/3 of a mile long.
Anyway, as I was slowly stop/start creeping up the hill the car didn't feel quite right, so once I got back onto open road I tried putting my foot down to see if all was normal. When accelerating heavily in 3rd the car was revving heavily but didn't have the pull it usually has, which to my limited understanding suggests the clutch was slipping. The pedal didn't feel as tight either (but I could've been imagining that)
What I'm wondering is whether the clutches performance will go back to normal once it's had a chance to cool down, or whether any potential damage done on the hill is irreversible!? I don't really understand how they work so sorry if it's an obvious question
A3 2.0 TDI 170 with Stage 1 remap. 100K on the clock, still on the first clutch as far as I know
