How come my 91 mr2 turbo losses clutch pressure after sitting in fifth gear on the freeway for an hour or more, then works again after being pumped several times. never fails otherwise?

Hi, you just see if the pistons in the cylinders that actuate the clutch are very old... If so they cant build up that ahigh a pressure to move the clutch. They ll lose compression. Also chceck for the fluid loses in the hydraulic circuits. Get the clutch assembly inspected.

IF the oil level is above the hot oil mark when cold then your problem is frothing of the oil from excessive oil . This causes a loss of pressure in the gearbox pump and the pressure is not there to activate the clutches and bands. Correct the oil level to where it should be and if the problem persists have a pressure test done on the gear box.

Why does transmission take so long to shift into drive when it is cold out?

The Transmission operates on Hydraulic pressure, when it's colder the oil is thicker so takes more to pump the fluid through so it takes longer, You can get additives to put in your trans for colder climates which will also help prolong the life of the trans. Ask at your local auto shop.

I have a 2004 Nissan Xterra. It is not cooling like it should. I changed the two filters behing the glove box. I checked the pressure and it is good. The compressor is coming on and sounds like the clutch...

When you say you checked the pressure did you connect gauges to the high and low sides to get both pressures, this sounds like it may be low. also what is the temp coming out of the vents. note on really hot days and humid the ac system doesnt cool as good unless the truck is moving down the road or highway and does take a while to cool down. at a stop or sitting or in traffic the ac temp will rise as the condensor needs to be cooled like the engine does, if its not cooling then the temp will not be cold, check the front of condensor for blockage, also make sure the fan is running with ac on. this fan should run when ac compressor is on,maybe clean condensor with water hose blowing from radiator outwardto front bumper, then make sure the hot/cold blend door is closing all the way,a quick test is to turn a/c on, turn temp control to hot and see if it gets hotter then back to cold and it should get colder. this sounds like the system may just be a little low. have an a/c tech check it, you may find its low or nothing is wrong. good day.

Why do i lose power to my fuel pump and injectors after my 1997 Hyundai Elantra gets hot?

If your fuel pump is damaged, when the car is cold, the fuel pump is also cold so it works with a greater pressure, but when the car is warm, a damaged fuel pump will loose pressure. So if you replace the fuel pump the problem will dissapear.

I have a 5.8L V8 that loses oil pressure at highway speeds and I am wondering the possible causes?

this can be cause a couple of ways you can have a faulty gauge ,a faulty oil sending unit,oil pump (you can check the pump by connecting a oil pressure test gauge to the engine were the sending unit comes out ,this will tell you if the pump and sending unit is working properly) or the engine is getting worn out, as parts in the engine ware out the tolerances get larger and larger and oil pressure will decrease, most of the time when you first start it on a cold day the oil pressure will be fine and as the engine gets hotter the oil pressure will decrease ,if it has a lot of miles i would say the engine and or pump is gettting tired and installing a pump can be costly,in that case i would suggest using a heavier weight oil if you use 10w30 try 20w50

It sounds like your Slave Clutch Cylinder has gone bad but here are a few more possibilities: Your Primary Clutch Cylinder is normally more stout but are you bleeding out on both ends? Have you checked for leakage from your Slave Cylinder to your Primary? Are you losing any fluid ? Did you break any fingers on your Clutch Pressure Plate?

My car will take a while to turn over when it is really cold out. just replaced the batter and it didn't help a much.

rotate the fuel pump relay with the horn relay. the fuel pump may not be getting good voltage which cold weather could affect.
Also try cycling the key three or four times before you crank the engine, This will prime the fuel line better and maybe it will start right up.
These simple test might pinpoint the issue towards fuel related.
Also under the same cold conditions if you were to spray a little brake cleaner in the throttle bore and it starts right up then you would know its a fuel issue.
The colder it is the more fuel is needed on cold starts.
Things that affect this are clogged injectors, low fuel pressure, weak spark plugs or wires, bad fuel pressure regulator. And in some cases a bad mass air flow sensor or air and water temp sensors.

Using a diagnostic scanner can eliminate alot of the guessing.
