Be careful with the pedal adjustment. aside from the bleeding the hydraulic clutch should "set itself". also the clutch booster might be having issues.

I have had some problems with that as well. Two things that it might be one is air in the lines. Make sure that the air is properly bled from both valves. Start with the bottom first. The other if you have the 91 300zx that was made before August of 1991 then it might have the first Master Clutch Cylinder which has a smaller bore than the upgrade made by nissan in the later part of 1991. The upgraded CMC has a larger bore and works alot better with Aftermarket Clutch system.

Your problem seem to be that it doesn't get enough fluid to make preasure for the clutch. When DOT 3 fluid gets warm it expands but loose density which means it cant supply the preasure need to hold the clutch. Getting air out of the system which will block the line or increaseing the size of the bore on the CMC you can get more preasure which should improve the status of your clutch.

Oh yeah don't forget about the Pedal Adjustment. That sometime needs to bew done as well.

How to tell if a flywheel is bad


most flywheel faults are heat related caused by a slipping clutch . Remove the transmission and inspect for , blue color heat spots . small cracks. scores caused by a worn out driven plate, run out check with a dial gauge. most flywheels can be machined as good as new . All ways fit a new replacement clutch kit with a new throw out bearing.

I was releasing my clutch and heard and FELT a "snap." It's a 1993 Geo Metro with a 3 cylinder engine and manual transmission. After the snap it felt like it wasn't quite "grabbing" when I released the...


Try a new cable, and make sure the funky suzuki weak pedal
is not cracked or the spline at top end is not stripped.
there are 2 parts here. not counting the shift lever that can fail.
1: the pedal actuator and cable.
2: the clutch actual.

if the clutch lever moves (at bell) 1 inch the (no play) then the clutch is bad.
see that simple test? the 1 inch?
you step on the pedal and the lever on the throw out moves 1inch.
that is all the curator does.


the cables is only good for like 100kmiles, (more if lubed)
and like to break in the center where you cant see, they fry there
and prevents you from setting up free play right.
see the problem here? if the cable is bad , you had tension on the
bell lever and the clutch slipped and burned up.
the cable is the cheapest part and the lowest labor.
why folks replace it last , is a wonder. but see that all the time.

do you understand the free play rules here. on all clutches.
(cable or lever type)
it must have free play, 1/2 inch at the pedal or 1/8" at bell lever.
if not the throwout burns up.
if not, (worse) the clutch slips.
if not the PP fingers overheat and the spring fails, (anneals)
free play.
and changes to tighter as you drive and clutch wears.
if you cant get the free play right ,its a big issue.
the #1 reason is bad CABLE. $25 and its out.

Clutch only lasting 5000- 8000 miles been replaced twice on warranty original clutch was good for 68000miles what could be problem? citroen saxo had car from new 52 plate 1.4i not driven any differently


Are they replacing/resurfacing your pressure plate when they replace the clutch. Is it possible you have an oil leak that is causeing the clutch to slip?

My clutch feels loose and does not allow me to change the gears, is my clutch worn out ?


Not necessarily. A worn clutch usually does not prevent gearchanging, it causes the clutch to slip instead.

You have instead described a failed clutch actuation system. If your clutch is cable operated then it probably needs adjustment or a new cable (they can stretch/fray over time) or if it's hydraulically operated then there is probably a leak in either the master or slave cylinder. Note that your problem can occur independently of whether the clutch is nearly new or worn out. Another, rarer, possibility is a worn or bent clutch release arm: to repair this part requires a complete clutch strip down and so it would be entirely normal and best practice to replace the remaining clutch components at the same time unless they're known to be almost brand new.

Almost all clutch fitting centres offer free clutch adjustments in the hope of finding chargeable repairs. If they claim the car needs just a new clutch then ask them why and take the car elsewhere for a second (or even a third) opinion.

Hi, I'm interested in buying a 1985 Land Rover Defender V8.Owner says the clutch is slipping when engine is warm. What is required to fix this and what would approximate cost be?


aftermarket clutch kits for this vehicle run $500-750 and about the same for labor to remove transmission and service clutch and plate...allow $1500 for this repair.Dealer price for parts and labor could double this estimate...good luck

Peugeot ae ****


1) CHECK THE ADJUSTMENT OF THE CLUTCH PEDAL, CHECK ITS FREE PLY.


2)ALSO THIS CAN HAPPEN IF ENGINE, GEAR BOX OR SELECTOR SHAFT SEAL IS LEAKING

3)PEUGEOT OFFERS A WARRANTY OF 1 YEAR FOR THE PARTS FITTED. EVENTHOUGH THE WEAR & TEAR PARTS ARE EXCLUDED, IF YOU HAVE FIXED GOT IT FIXED EARLIER WITH IN THE PEUGEOT NETWORK & IT REALLY IS THE DEFECT OF THE PART, YOU STILL HAVE A CHANCE.
