Re: Manual transmission slipping
Did you have the flywheel resurfaced when you were having the clutch replaced. Not resurfacing the fly wheel can cause slippage and premature clutch failure. also did the release bearing run smoothly on the input shaft sleeve. sometimes the sleeve can get a burr on it preventing full release of the pressure plate. mike

Karina, it sounds like the "Clutch is Slipping" several things can cause this. (1) The clutch could be slipping under load going up the hill because it has oil on it, "Due To An Oil Leak". (2) The Slave Cylinder could be going bad or it could have air in the system due to a seal leak or low on fluid.

I take it that this has a manual gear box and clutch operation. If so the problem is that the clutch is slipping. Check that the clutch slave cylinder is fully releasing the clutch bearing ( faulty master cylinder). If all is ok then the clutch pressure plate is weak allowing the clutch plate to slip under load. In that case the fix is to remove the gear box and replace the clutch assembly with a new clutch kit.
Sounds like a slipping clutch or transmission depending if its a manual or an automatic geared car. If its a manual with a slipping clutch it will slip worse when in a higher gear going up hill. It will sound like the car is reving higher the the car is moving. If it is the case the clutch assembly will require replacement which involves removal of the gearbox. If its an auto and does the same thing check the fluid level at the dipstick.Top up if low and rectify leaks, If its not low and the fluid smells burned or is brown you should take it to an automatic transmission specialist to have it checked out.

Sorry, there are no adjustments on your vehicle., The clutch is activated via hydraulic pressure. The master and slave cylinders are "self-adjusting". If the clutch is slipping, you are going to need to pull the trans and replace the clutch assembly. Changing the hydraulics will not help a slipping clutch at all.
Manual transmissions do not slip ie. when the gears mesh, there is no slip unless they strip out and make an awful noise and will not pull henceforth.
You probably still have a slipping clutch plate against the flywheel. You need to adjust the clutch petal linkage shaft to allow the pressure plate to be release from the thrust bearing, ie shorten the shaft length.. If you and most likely you do just have the clutch release slave cylinder that releases the clutch when you apply the petal. You need to bleed the slave cylinder of any excess fluid or air that may have entered the line if you opened it at any point. You need to bleed it as you would a break cylinder and this should fix ya. good luck. good luck
