Ford probe drive problem

I refer to my drive problem.I had a new clutch fitted the car has been fine for about 100 miles but last night I pulled away and there was a loud clunk and I lost all drive when you rev it high it goes nowhere but you can hear a grinding noise.Could it be a problem with the new clutch as I find I can put it in gear without my foot on the clutch without any crunching from gearbox.

Sounds like the clutch disk broke. Only way to know is to pull the trans.

Hi i drive a 03 ford transit when you press the clutch pedal it feels fine but you cant select gears only 5 gear when you try to get first gear its like the clutch is not being pressed


Your clutch disc may be worn out, when the disc wears completely down the pressure plate goes over center and that causes the clutch to slightly engage when the pedal is depressed and you grind gears, most clutches last about 75000 miles.

1997 Probe Gt, 5 speed, 2.5 L V-6; 77,750 miles: replaced clutch master cylinder 11/15/2010. Clutch free play okay, pressure to push clutch pedal down- okay (these conditions apply to vehicle after...


THe problem can only really be with the clutch master cylinder. What you describe sounds like the master cylinder is not relieving pressure and this is building up in the salve cylinder, applying pressure to the pressure place and causing the clutch to slip. Can you make the problem go away even temporarily, if you open the bleed screw on the slave cylinder? You say that the free play is correct, but is the master cylinder returning fully to its released position?

If hydralic, it sound like you have air in the hydralic line. You need to bleed it off at the slave cylinder (gearbox end of the line)

If cable type, then you may need to reset the ratchet on the clutch pedal.

Peugeot 106 1.5D. the clutch was slipping so new clutch fitted 2 weeks ago. It was still slipping so that garage replaced the clutch again. Guess what? It is still slipping. Any idea what is going on?


Yes clutch pedal should start to drive about 1inch off the floor and when driving keep your foot away from the pedal,/ also when new clutch is fitted did they fit a complete clutch assy /and did they surface grind the flywheel as if it was badly worn on the 1st one then the new one wouldent last very long.
as when the clutch starts to drive 1" from the floor clutch is good /when it engages right out its buggered and slips so ask about the f/wheel

Ford probe


the front drive axle on one side may have not been installed all the way in to the transmission, check to see if it is loose and have some one look under front end with engine on, front end jacked up, emergency brake on and in gear to see if a axle is turning. if one is and yhe other is not put the car in park and turn\ roll the wheel that was not turning by hand if it rolls your problem is most likley to be the axle has come loose from the transmission
