Anyways, I continued to drive it and while it ran good and the smell lessened, something didn't seem right. At 600 miles I took it to the dealer and they took it for a roadtest to diagnose possible clutch failure. Needless to say, it failed. Now i have a new clutch, pressure plate and everything associated with it going in this week. It helped that i had informed them right away.
Yep anything that might be clutch related best to let your dealership know right away, being that its a wear item you want to give them the opportunity
to get it all fixed up
