So that fixed it, then it recurred, I did the "controlled burn" again, and it fixed it again.

I'm thinking it's probably just buying me time. Until I burn away the remaining clutch material, or the DMF completely fails. Maybe it has multiple springs and one of them is shot, so it's more sensitive to material deposits?

I don't know. Just going to tread water with this repeating cycle until I'm forced to actually deal with it, I guess.

What's disconcerting? That your car is going to kicked out of its home away from home soon to make room for new blood?
