The best clutch to buy would be one from BMW, but that would be expensive. So if you go with a pirate make sure it is a well known brand and that you get a garuntee.

My 1996 olds mobile cutlass supreme wont take off in drive, it will take off if you put it in first

Sounds like one-way clutch in transmission is bad. With the slippage noticed also, I would say that it is going to need a replacement transmission.

My check engine light is on on a Mercedes S 320 1996. The Computer says it is the Secondary Air pump. My mechanic said it might be the valves. Does anyone know what is the real problem ? If I replace the...

First what he needs to look at is whether or not the secondary air injection(air pump)is turning on. Works like an A/C compressor with a clutch. Commonly what happens is that moisture builds up in the pump itself and cuases it to sieze up. Have him check the pump first then make sure the check valves are good working order. He should be able to hook an OBD 2 scanner to this and be able to retrieve codes. If he says that's not possible, he does not know what he is doing. It's a '96. The OBD2 compliance became standard in '95. If you need further assistance, please let me know. These are great cars!!

Go to any Advance or Autozone Store and buy the Chiltons Manual for your vehicle. They are around 19.99 and this will have every repair that you will ever need to repair anything on your car. I love theses books. They have pictures and step by step instructions. Hope this helps.

I have a 1998 accord 4cyl coupe manual trans. The

A clutch issue youtend to have more of an engagement problem with 1st and reverse gear for a small time period before you notice other gears.You want to check the clutch hydrolic system for any leaks(clutch slave at transmission,clutch master,which you look for leakage on interior above clutch pedal)and at fluid also want to double check condition of trans fluid. strongly recommend using only HONDA BRAND MANUAL TRANS. FLUID when doing maintinance,fluid should be replaced every 30k on this car.The Honda brand fluid is like night and day on these cars,it WILL make a difference in shifting!!TRust Me on this point! Sorry now back to your main clutch issue,when driveing and you go to shift gears and normally notice grinding,with clutch pedal in shft out of gear and before engageing it into next gear do a double pump of clutch pedal then see if when continuing to next gear if it engagees smoother.if so you know you have without a dout a clutch pressure plate/disc problem. I can tell you that in twenty years the only manual transmissions themselves that ever had problems were due to outside influences(gear oil in transmission,improper driveing,etc.)let me know what you find and we can go from there..JOEL

Replace the clutch on my 1990 acura legend coupe, or sell the car

Sounds to me like someone wants you to get rid of the car because of the milage thats on it, that is alot of miles, but a new clutch is not goin to wear down the engine, someone is just afraid its not going to stop with just a clutch that its going to nickel and dime you to death. what you got to understand is someone is looking out for your best intrest, you got to weigh out what you want to do spend the money for a new clutch, or put that money towards a newer car, its not sentimental any more its economics.

1996 MX-6 V6 5 Speed: Clutch suddenly goes to the floor but....

It sounds like a fault with the clutch master cylinder or possibly the slave cylinder at the gearbox. With the age of the vehicle and the cost of the parts I'd recommend replacing both. This may not be something you want to tackle yourself, groveling around under the dash removing bolts for the master cylinder is not much fun, and clutch systems can be difficult to bleed up when they get air in them. I'd recommend taking it to a brake specialist (they do clutch work as well) and getting an estimate on costs before going ahead. Get a few estimates from a few garages to ensure that you are getting a good deal.

Hope this helps.
