Evo VIII Slipping clutch

2004 Evo 8 - 25,000miles. Only had car 12mths and the clutch has starting slipping at about 3,500 rpm, dealers haven't looked at it, but have decided it's definitely got to be replaced - at a cost of £1100. How long should the clutch have lasted.?? (Female driver - approx 10miles a day), and could this possibly be an oil leak..??? Please help.

It's common for Evo 8s to need a new clutch at around 20k - 30k. It happens more when the driver clutches often, drives in traffic a lot, etc.

What are the causes for sienna transmission slipping

You have a failed transaxle--- your done

That will be a $3,500 repair

I do not have the time here to explain the answer why

The main reason transmissions slip-- is that no one changes

the trans fluid at all or every 2 to 3 years (that is a death sentence)

The fluids main job is to remove heat

It breaks down after two years & so goes your your slipping

clutches that get fried

90 % of all transmission problems can be prevented

If you drive correctly & most folks don\'t

If you change the fluid & no one does

If you stop using it when you first notice something & have

it checked out,you have some hope it will go for a few years

Transxles only go about 85,000 miles

Most all new transmissions have known faults, the manufacturers

do nothing about it ,that gets resolved with updates in the field

or aftermarket,not at a dealer though- seldom

Your vehicle is 14 years old

I would guess your on your second trans

Only rear drive last for 18 years or 200,000 & not

many-- as they never see that new fluid

There are NO Sealed transmissions & the dealers have

nothing special going on there, on any subject

You never need a dealer- unless you care to part

with extra money

I have a 1999 Suzi katana 600 and it started slipping in 3rd 4th 5th gear at about 5 or 6 thousand rpm. I took the cover off an looked at the clutch plates and there purple like they're burnt out. Does...

it is possible that the clutch plates are worn or the pressure cover is weak. Most bikes have an oil filled clutch to prevent overheating and plate wear. Check the manual for this or talk to a service dealer.

If a manual then the clutch is slipping (check adjustment) or if auto the torque converter clutch or bands and clutch packs are slipping.

How do i know my clutch is gone out

You can do a third gear test.. Try and start it in third and ease out on the clutch. If the car stalls your clutch is ok. if it slips most of the way, you know its not in good shape.

Other signs of a shot clutch is while its in gear you can floor it and the rpms will shoot up and the mph will not rise as fast, this is the clutch slipping on your flywheel.

Rpm goes way up when driving4000 rpm then back down to 2000in 5 seconds

sounds like either your trans is slipping or you have a bad Throttle Position Sensor. A bad TPS will give the feeling of the trans not shifting properly and will make it hold onto to shifts too long.

Clutch slipping m4 golf

Best check for this is to get the car around 30mph, put it in top gear, and floor the gas. If the clutch is going to slip, this is when it'll happen. If it slips, you'll need to replace it. If it doesn't, there's likely no issue with the clutch and you'll have to look elsewhere for the problems you're seeing.
