Question about Cars & Trucks

My clutch on my toyota corrola seems to shudder and vibrate.

I've had my car for a few days now, when test driving it seemed fine, when selecting first-gear and getting to my biting point the car seems to shudder and vibrate. And when selecting the gears the car always makes and jerking action, could this be the clutch going?

SOURCE: The bite point of my clutch is very low and it is

You will not gain anything from "double clutching", The thrust bearing is not fully seated. Normal wear would indicate a high catch point on your pedal. Check the fluid level for the clutch cylinder, check the reservoir cap, look for any moisture under the cap. If it has gotten below the add mark, you may have air, any moisture, flush, refill and bleed. Any of these would create a low pedal...Lube your clutch linkage.
Tip: you can purchase and install aftermarket lubrication kits for
the thrust bearing that will help clutch operations and extend life...

Good Luck....i hope this helps

SOURCE: Clutch shudder and loose gears

It sounds to me like the clutch is slipping or it was not properly adjusted. I would take it back and tell them to take it out for a drive around the block. If they still refuse to do anything about it, take it to another garage and get their opinion. Better yet, get a written estimate. Then take it back to the garage that put the clutch in and tell them either fix the problem for free or you are going to take it elsewhere to get it fixed and sue them in small claims court. I do know that when i replaced my clutch, you need to have about a 100 mile break in. But still, the gears should not be loose and it should shudder. If anything, a new clutch will grab hard with very little play untill it is broke in.

SOURCE: Jerks going into 3rd Gear

You the beginnings of what is known as the reverse slam. If caught early enough it is fixable. However, most times a rebuilt valve body is in order. I do it for around $200. For the record any late 1992-2002 valve body will work, those are the type II. Type I won't work and is 1992-early 1992 years.

You don't need to change your clutch!
All you need to do is replace a simple shaft which can be done by any mechanic!
Cost you much less!

1996 Ford Thunderbird LX V8 Automatic Transmission shudder

Check rear emergency brakes if you have 4 wheel discs. When soot and brake lining fall to bottom of assembly they jam and shudder until wheels start rolling fast enough to scatter debris.

Also if posi equipped there is a needed rear-end additive to help clutch plates work. Perhaps clean rear-end lube and additive is needed.

Trouble starting (on hot days?)- seems like a power issue, but battery and starter are OK.

You may be making this too complicated.
When the air temp is high, the battery can become weak. So a battery that tests "good' today may be "fair" when it is 90 degrees.
Heat and lack of water are the biggest killers of car batteries.
And a starter can take twice as much current to operate when hot than when cold. Dampness and humidity are also factors in electrical circuits.
I would disconnect the battery when the truck is going to be parked for more than a few hours until you find the problem. That way you will know nothing in the truck is draining it.
Also, you should have the output of the alternator checked. A failing alternator would not have anything to do with the check engine light on your truck. The alternator can be charging 5 amps which would be enough to knock out the battery light, but not enough to handle the heat and the load of running the ac. It should be able to charge 40 or 50amps at road speed when needed.
The check engine light and rough running stuff does not involve the starting system. Only the battery, starter, and cables.

1991 Toyota Pickup 3.0 idle problems

I would clean the idle speed control valve (IAC) and the throttle valve and bore with CRC brand throttle valve cleaner, use about 1/2 of the can, hold the idle up so it won't die while you spray it into the throttle valve. After you are done disconnect the battery negative (-) cable for 5 min's and then drive it for a few days so the system can relearn the idle strategy for your driving habits
