Honda ballade luxline auto 1996 does it have a clutch.while i am driving it is busy sliding when changing gears


It does not have a clutch in the true sense of the word, it has a torque converter which are two two dishes with vanes in them and the one drives the other by means of fluid. If the fluid in the torque converter and the transmission is low or the linkages or downshift cables are out of adjustment, you will have the symptoms of a "slipping clutch".

The clutch is not engaging correctly- if you let clutch petal up, it slips (if you give gas it's worse). If no or little gas given, clutch slowly engages after the clutch petal is all the way up.


sounds like you may be able to adjust the clutch and correct the problem, look at the clutch cable and and adjust it some and see if it helps, if it does then adjust it til you feel it is right.

My transmission seems to not shift properly. I


forget the manual and throw it into back of garage ,now this expert ?? me only works on manuals because us spanish wouldnt give an auto box house room.Now if its not clearing properly when changing gear or its a job to get into first or reverse when stationary then its a new clutch job,some model cars have an adjustable clutch lever arm but if it gets to that stage where you have adjust it right out to get it to engage then its a new clutch time .Now hondas are not adjustable as such because they are hydraulic operated ,if it has clutch fluid then it sould work ok, but if the master cylinder is scored inside or the rubber is badly worn then could cause the problem ,get assistant to push clutch down and check movement on clutch arm ,if the arm starts to creep back when held down then the master cylinder needs changing ,but if it stays down then the clutch is worn even if it is not slipping ,the diaphragm spring clutch is going weak and the clutch plate isnt clearing ,or the clutch plate has heat distortion and its grabbing

My Clutch won't engage into gear. Need advice!


Did you check the clutch reservoir under the hood mounted on the firewall, driver side? Make sure level is up where it should be. If it's real low, you may have to bleed the system to get the air out. If you need to add fluid, use brake fluid.

Manual transmission


It sure sounds like a clutch problem, You describe needing more RPM's which indcates a slipping clutch. If the shifter goes into each gear but the car doesn't move your clutch is gone or the linkage is stuck or inoperative. hope this helps, Chuck
