It sounds like you replaced the slave cylinder. It could be master cylinder or clutch pedal bushings(MORE)?

It's common for a clutch's hydraulic system to get air inside. Mechanic's fix this by bleeding the lines briefly. Good Luck!-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Clutch stays down. Slowly will take of with clutch fully pressed. Does not slip.dont understand


It sounds as though the clutch pressure plate has become weak.

When you press the clutch pedal the release/throwout bearing presses against the centre of the clutch pressure plate. This causes the metal 'fingers' -the springs- on the pressure plate to flex and release pressure on the driven plate - momentarily disconnecting the drive from engine to gearbox.

The link below is of generic clutch images
how clutch works Google Search

A weak pressure plate isn't fully releasing the driven plate. If you're going to do any replacing of parts - a clutch should be replaced in 3 units: Pressure plate, driven plate and release/throwout bearing.

Why does it drive well for 30 minutes but after that will go into gear but wont move?


I suspect that the full engagement of the clutch pressure plate is not being achieved
if a pressure plate is held at reduced application pressure , it will continuously slip marginally and this build up to a point where the clutch plate will not absorb any more heat and so it fades and slips completely ( same affect as brake fade from worn pads and too heavy brake application -like long down hill runs )
the area I would check is the clutch master cylinder as it appears that the compensating port is blocked , and holding pressure in the clutch line which with increasing heat from the clutch builds up more pressure and compounds the pressure plate problem
this is identical to a heavy truck clutch problem where full testing produced no problems , yet at 100 miles and on a range the clutch failed completely but when cooled down again tested as good
on replacing the clutch pressure plate and clutch plate it was revealed by a clutch specialist shop that the pressure springs were actually weaker that specifications and were in fact allowing the clutch top slip and so go into the fade situation

Why does the clutch slip intermittently on my Audi A4 2009 Diesel in high gears


Agreed. The clutch disk is likely worn. The pressure plate is self adjusting so there is no adjustment available on stock Audi pressure plates or indeed in most pressure plates.

Another possible cause is a leaking rear main engine seal that is allowing engine oil to seep and then be thrown around the bell housing and work its way onto the flywheel/clutch/pressure plate.

Test you clutch in 3-4 gear acceleration from a slow speed...if the engine speed flares faster than the car accelerates, you have a worn/bad clutch.

I have Honda Accord 2001and I put the scanner this Code come out p1768 what this means


Possible causes
- Clutch Pressure Control Solenoid Valve harness is open or shorted
- Clutch Pressure Control Solenoid Valve circuit poor electrical connection
- Faulty Clutch Pressure Control Solenoid Valve

Has to do with the solenoid or wiring to the solenoid inside the transmission. You should have the problem addressed at a transmission shop.

Losing pressure from my clutch


What type of car, what year, what is the mileage, what type of clutch? You could have a worn out clutch, you could have a bad slave cylinder, a bad master cylinder, the springs that create the pressure between the clutch and pressure plate might be failing or an overheated/warped clutch pressure plate.

A/C turned warm and got a loud clicking noise from under the engine. Small amount of initial visible smoke and smell. Noise goes away when A/C turned off. Is it the A/C clutch? Can that be replaced...


Hello, It can be the clutch but you need to test the residual pressure in the system as is. The clicking sound indicates the clutch is being switched off and on by the pressure switches. The smoke and smell can be the Freon escaping from a hole in the lines. Or the last gasp of the Freon created ice deposits which melted on the exhaust pipes and is now gone.

A quick explanation of the pressure switches and clicks. You have both a low and high pressure cutoff switch, the ideal pressure is theoretically in the middle of these 2 pressures and kepts the clutch running the longest. With too much Freon the pressure gets too high and the high pressure switch cuts off the clutch; with too little Freon the low pressure switch cuts off the clutch.

You need a tool to test pressure. The low pressure switch is on the freon line close to the black oblong cylinder. If you unplug the wire to this switch and make a U shaped coated jumper wire, you can make the clutch engage by inserting the wire into the connector while the engine is running. Do this for less than a minute if you are not prepared to add Freon, then remove the jumper.

You now know the problem is low pressure if the clutch turns on. Remember to have the dash controls set for the A/C. If the clutch did not engage, check your fuses, then blame your clutch.

Many of the autoparts stores have tool loaner programs. Check with the parts store for the A/C clutch and what tool is needed to change it. There is some room under the hood of a Grand Marquis and it may be possible to replace the clutch without removing the compressor or lines.

If the problem is low pressure and not the clutch, you must find the leak. Get a can of Freon with leak detector, jump the low pressure switch and add the Freon to the oblong tank by the Firewall.
Then repair the problem identified and purge and recharge the system. The autoparts stores loan out the Vacuum dryers.

There is no pressure when i press down my clutch, I just had it replaced about a year and a half ago. It didn't feel like the clutch went?


clutch master or slave cyl. could have gone out so you are no longer releasing clutch thats why no pressure on pedal. look for Brake fluid leak -clutch uses same type of fluid. or master cyl can leak or bypass internally and just not build pressure.

1998 ford contour 2.5 ltr manual,stuck in second and have to hold the clutch in to move it.how do i solve this issue?


SECTION 308-00: Manual Transmission/Transaxle and Clutch - General Information 1998 Contour/Mystique Workshop Manual DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION Manual Transaxle and Clutch Manual Transaxle and Clutch - General Information This section covers general procedures for diagnosis and testing the clutch system. For additional information, refer to Section 308-01 . For specified clutch system service procedures. For additional information, refer to Section 308-02 . For a complete description of the manual transaxle. For additional information, refer to Section 308-03 .
The clutch system includes:
  • Flywheel.
  • Clutch disc.
  • Clutch pressure plate.
  • Clutch master cylinder.
  • Clutch slave cylinder.
  • Clutch release fork.
  • Clutch release hub and bearing.
The clutch master cylinder transmits fluid pressure to the slave cylinder, which in turn moves the clutch release fork and the clutch release hub and bearing.
The clutch master cylinder uses brake fluid and shares a common reservoir with the brake master cylinder
The clutch is a single plate, dry-friction disc with a diaphragm-style spring clutch pressure plate. The clutch disc has a hub which is splined to the input shaft. The clutch disc has friction material where it contacts the flywheel and the clutch pressure plate. Torsion springs on the clutch disc help absorb the engine torque pulses. The clutch pressure plate applies pressure to the clutch disc, holding it tightly against the surface of the flywheel.
In the engaged position, the diaphragm spring holds the clutch pressure plate against the clutch disc, so that engine torque is transmitted to the input shaft. When the clutch pedal is depressed, the clutch release hub and bearing pushes the diaphragm spring center toward the flywheel. The diaphragm spring pivots at the fulcrum, relieving the load on the clutch pressure plate. Steel spring straps riveted to the clutch pressure plate cover pull the clutch pressure plate from the clutch disc, disengaging the engine torque from the transaxle and enabling the gears to be changed.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Inspection and Verification - MTX-75
The following checks should be carried out before repairing or replacing the transaxle:
Poor gear shifting
  1. Check the operation of the clutch: Lay a block of wood approx. 25 mm thick under the clutch pedal and depress the clutch pedal as far as the stop. If 1st or 2nd gear can be selected with no problem with the engine running and the parking brake applied, the clutch is OK. If the gear cannot be selected, repair the clutch.
  1. Check the selector mechanism:
    • The free play in the gearshift lever must be no more than 15 mm.
      • If the gearshift lever free play is too great, check the gearshift cables and replace them if necessary.
    • If the gearshift lever free play is OK, adjust the gearshift linkage. For additional information, refer to Section 308-06 .
  1. Check the transaxle fluid level and top up with Automatic Transmission Fluid ESD-M2C186-A if necessary.

Clutch slipping when it get hot


Check the adjustment of the clutch push rod. It is the rod that connects the clutch pedal to the clutch master cylinder.
