The slower the engine is turning, the more of a beating they get. Starting and stopping the engine gives the DMF it's toughest challenge.

At least we don't have engine stop-start systems to gaurantee problems. :roll:

The 5 pots will pull hard from 1100rpm so it's quite easy to unintentionally labour them.

Tell that to Mrs Welly who upon here first 'go' in the car pulled out onto a main road in 3rd Gear :shock: ....it just hauled itself along somehow....that's when she said it had a 'cronky gearbox' :roll:

I would like a 'meat' at some point but I'll be too dead from other commitments on that same weekend.
Cars in my care:

2005 Volvo S40 T5 a bit pampered
2010 Citroen C4 1.6 HDi turbo de' explosions
2010 Renner Twingo refreshingly simple
