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.

5 speed manuel rpm goes up but dont wanna go

I understand that your engine accelerates fine to high RPM's but your car won't move. Since it is a manual transmission car, the problem may be in a slipping clutch. Probably your clutch is worn and slips.
You might need to replace your clutch.

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.

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
