Q: Clutch appears to be burnt out.

asked by on

In Novemeber the clutch started slipping on an across the state, that resulted in it getting replaced over there. Fast forward to the end of December the clutch stated showing signs of slipping again, on my way home from work that day it went out completely. You are able to still start the vechile, however if you put it into gear, it goes no where and there is a strong "burning brakes" smell. My room mate, who works as a mechanic recommended I purchase a new clutch kit and flywheel, however I am unsure if this is all the parts that would be require or if it is even the correct approach to this issue,
My car has a manual transmission.
