Question about 2001 Chevrolet Cavalier
Ok im going to give you details because i want to see your input.
its a 2002 cavalier 2.2 and has about 127000 km's on it, about a week or 2 ago i have been noticing that when shifting into first sometimes when releasing the clutch it stutters and slips maybe 1 out of 5 times i am wondering if I have a burnt clutch or pressure plate for the clutch but before i resort to buying a new one would like some of your inputs, is it possible that the transmission needs new fluids, it is also winter here is it possible the release bearing for the clutch is getting worn and needs to be lubed or replaced etc. any input would help thanks
You can test your clutch, by putting on the parking brake, start car, put vehicle in 5th and release the clutch slowly. If the car stalls, it is likely ok. if it does not stall then your clutch is worn and requires replacement. It sounds like you have maybe an oil leak possibly from the front seal of the transmission, which is leaking onto the clutch plate. this will also require replacement of the clutch and the front seal. also while it is out check the flywheel is not damaged. This could have a dual mass flywheel which are also prone to failure giving clutch problems.
