SOMETHING WAS DONE WRONG, TAKE IT BACK TO THE SHOP AND MAKE THEM FIX
WAS THE FLYWHEEL TURNED?

FixYa.com claims they have factory repair manuals, they have nothing of the sort ,this is false advertising, we experts are not employed by FixYa.com, we help free of charge as much as we can with the general automotive knowledge we have learned while working as auto technicians, I think allot of people don't understand this.

    I am sorry to hear this, but you are going to have to tear it down and figure out what went wrong, sounds like the pressure plate is defective or the clutch is no fully releasing, make sure it is before you take it apart, there is a chance it is the clutch release that is at fault.

Freelander clutch


check out the operation of the clutch system .IT is difficult to rationalise a hydraulic clutch because if it is slipping that means that the pressure plate is being held off and not fully engaging but it also means that when pressing on the clutch the there would be no problem changing gears . But if you have a cable clutch operation then it is possible that the cable is jamming inside the outer cover and holding the pressure plate off ( slipping) and gear problems. If it is cable then replace the cable first. If hydraulic then it may mean box out for a new clutch kit.

For car not changing gears it can be shifter assembly issue, or it can also be transmission issue. Get the shifter assembly inspected with ignition OFF.

My stick Audi A6 Quatro had some gear slip when I shifted, then a lot of gear slip, and now the car doesn't move. I can shift into any gear without using the clutch. The RPMs go up, but car does


Your friction plate is kaput. Replace clutch system. Sounds like the pressure plate needs attention as well. No idea of price but get prices of "clutch kit" on the web and you can have an idea.

There is a slight vibration on my lexus 300 GS 2007 on gear 1 immediately after moving.I have changed the shaft and mounting chairs are brand new ...what could the problem be?


If the problem is in 1st gear as as you take off and as speeds get greater and shifts into second gear sometimes it's a slipped belt in rear tire and as speeds starts to get above 10-20 mph problem starts to fade away sounds a lot like a slipped belt in a rear tire

My clutch works sometimes and sometimes it don't. I was driving came to a stop, tried to go it sounded like the clutch popped out of gear or something broke. My car wouldn't go so I got towed. but...


A clutch that's failing doesn't behaves like that - it slowly starts slipping until it fails completely and definitely. If it would break suddenly (like when the pressure plate would snap) the noise and the vibrations it would generate would be unbearable.
No, in your case something is failing inside the transmission/gearbox - most likely in the command forks and their locking pins. The gearbox will have to taken off the car and dismantled to investigate and fix that, and it will be expensive.

I have a 1997 Toyota Tacoma 4x4 3.4L with a 5 speed manual transmission with 98K miles. I just bought this truck and fairly new to Tacoma's but am mechanically inclined. I have a vibration that is mostly...


Sounds like a clutch related problem to me.. a few clues you gave.. the vibration.. sign of a worn pilot bearing.. clutch not engaging until top of pedal.. worn clutch lining.. the next thing will be slipping or grabbing..

At some point you will need to replace the clutch and pressure plate.. have the flywheel resurfaced.. insist on a new pilot bearing and inspect the clutch master and slave while all this is going on.

With good stick driving habits..and good components.. it could last a lot longer than the original.. if should go a lot longer.

Timing belt- your overdue by 8k miles if it hasn't been done.
You may want to replace the water pump, thermostat and drive belts while your at it.

Best of luck!

The clutch slips in first gear when it is hot.


You need a new clutch again. Sorry to give ya the bad news. This time make sure they put a new transmission seal in so fluid can not leak onto the clutch plate and ruin it.

Gear Box


You need to check the adjustment on the shifter, I think that may be the problem, do that before assuming the gearbox is defective.
