Toyota LandCruiser: clutch 'shudder'

Asked by Chris Welch

My 1996 Toyota Land Cruiser 80 Series has done 180,000 km and still has the original clutch. Around town it is fine, but when towing our 2500 kg van, especially from a start, the clutch feels like it is struggling. There's a bit of shudder, but no slippage. Would you advise getting a heavy-duty clutch fitted?

If the shuddering isn't getting worse I would probably persist with it until it starts to slip. If it slips, then definitely replace it.
