Question about 1998 Isuzu Amigo

98 amigo v6 new clutch set up

The throwout bearing fell apart so no doubt it was time for a clutch while I had it apart. I installed the clutch kit and reinstalled the trans but the set up does not look right. when I installed the slave cylinder and bled it, I had constant pressure against the T/O bearing. Is this correct? I followed the manual and assembled the new as I disassembled the old. I had never removed the inspection cover prior to this event so I can't be sure if this is as it should be.

Thanks for your help!

There should be no pressure on the T/O bearing hence why it died in the first place.

at a minimum the pressure plate but not changing everything while in there would be silly

my rodeo had the same problem i corrected it by bleeding the slave cylinder. and is located on the driver side on the gearbox you will find it if you follow the line from the master cylinder down to the gearbox and if that helps but happens again it might have to be replaced.

Sounds like the wrong pressure plate. I got a kit from Autozone and it was the wrong pressure plate. My old one was obviously thicker. With the new pressure plate, the shift fork was almost at full travel before any resistance. That's no good. I had to pull the transmisssion again and use my old pressure plate. Luckily, it was in good condition. Then, the clutch slack was easily adjusted and works great.

SOURCE: Where is slave cylinder for clutch on 1994 Isuzu pickup 2.3 litre

To determine which type of clutch you have, servo hydraulic or cable.
Look down past the engine bell housing and determine the existance of a hydraulic clutch slave cylinder.(a piece of casting with a rod facing towards the rear of the vehicle pocket into a bracket protruding out of the gearbox bell housing. As well as a pipe and bleed nipple to be crude)
(which I believe you have).The hydraulic fluid for this unit is sourced from the brake master cylinder reservoir via a sneaky pipe partially obscured to the clutch master cylinder on the internal firewall.If you have no clutch slave cylinder near the bell housing there would be an obvious bounden cable running from the firewall down to the outer of which will be stopped at a bracket hanging off the engine.The inner will continue to a bracket protruding from the gearbox bell housing.

Throwout bearing repair


Well, the gearbox has to come off. The bearing probably needs replacement rather than repair. Unless the clutch is very new, you may as well replace it too, and the pressure plate. Examine the throwout fork very closely for cracks, as they can fail that way.

Throwout beardin no good...can it be replaced only or whold clutch


Yes, the throwout bearing can be replaced individually. However, it still requires removal of the transmission to replace it. For the low cost of a clutch kit (which includes a throwout bearing) why would you want to go through all that work and not replace the clutch also?

I have a 1990 jeep wrangler, the throwout bearing in the clutch has gone out for the second time. Is there a way of using the linkage from a new model to eliminate the doughnut hydraulic throwout?


try using a bearing that is in a metal casiing and not a plastic piece of junk that comes in the clutch kit nowdays ,they always end up going wrong where bearing melts the holder ,unless you can fit a thin telecamit tube and a grease nipple so clutch bearing can be greased every few months like on a good old fashioned commercial vehicle

The cutch pedal should have about an inch of free play before contacting the pressure plate. otherwise throw out bearing will run continuously . It wont last long. Adjust at firewall for 1 inch of free play at the top of pedal stroke.

Replacing the clutch on a 1998 Saturn SL1 we encountered a problem after installation, The clutch would not disengage. The hydraulic clutch system and slave cylinder seemed to be working fine, we even...


It is very difficult for you to disengage the clutch by hand or with any leverage you can get outside the transmission. There is over 200 lbs of force clamping on the clutch disc.

If you replaced the clutch and took the slave cylinder out of the transmission without putting a brick under the clutch pedal or disconnecting the pivot arm from the pedal then you ruined the hydraulics. Buy a new PRE-BLED system from a local auto store. Generally this is the problem.

Either that or the clutch fork is bent or you installed the throwout bearing backwards (or simply fell off the fork which is not all that uncommon).

Cant put my 98 Hombre in gear.


There are 4 parts to this system. First is the clutch master cylinder, second is the slave cylinder, third is the clutch throwout bearing, and last is the clutch pressure plate. These are all the parts that can be the issue. The master cylinder is the part that pumps the fluid to the slave cylinder, which pushes on the linkage to the throwout bearing, which pushes on the fingers on the clutch pressure plate, releasing the clutch. If you drained the fluid out, first you need to make sure that all the AIR is out of the system. It's just like brakes, it will not pump if it has air in it. The hydraulic portion of the system rarely gives problems, so here's a question. How old is the clutch in your truck? If it's over 100,000 mi, then you should start suspecting the throwout bearing. Did the truck make any groaning noises when you pressed the clutch recently, and then perhaps it stopped on its own? These are signs of throwout bearings going out. Here's the bit of troubleshooting that you need. go under your truck, and find where the slave cylinder attaches and pushes on the linkage that goes into the bell housing on the transmission. Feel this linkage; it should have very limited to no movement. if it moves significantly, then your throwout bearing went out, and you will need to replace your clutch and throwout bearing. If not, then it's the hydraulic portion of the brakes, and you'll have to troubleshoot between air in the system, master cylinder failure, or slave cylinder failure.

94 chevy s-10 clutch won't release comepletely after replacement


two things to mind, sometimes when you get a new clutch it comes with blocks in pressure plate there put in there from the factory for shipping purposes, they have to be removed otherwise it will do what you discribe. secound if you got the wrong length throwout bearing will do it to. most likely its one or the other. if you sure everything is right as far as clutch, pressure plate, and throwout bearing, than the only other thing i can say it could be is slave cyl. bad. hope this helps.
