When you are trying to drive the vehicle does the engine rpm's rev high such to overcome the brakes? drive the vehicle for a moment and then get out and walk around the vehicle with the back of your hand touch the wheel not the brake directly and see if an immense heat is coming from one or all the wheels, if not then the problem is your clutch. once you do this let me know, the clutch problem is a separate problem and i can help you there too. good luck

Ok well to start, there is no such thing as an emergency brake on a car.
Now, on some cars, the hydraulic reservoir that feeds the clutch slave cylinder also feeds the brake master cylinder, so to answer your question, yes, it could be related.
I suppose if you wanted to you could check this by first jacking up the front, with the parking brake off and the transmission in neutral, see how easy it is to spin the wheels. If the brakes are dragging, you'll definitely know.
Do the same to the rear.
Alternatively.. take it ack to the mechanic that did the job and make your concerns known.

If you release the clutch pedal and it revs up before it goes and while driving the rpm gauge goes up and down is that the clutch slipping


If you are getting that amount of slippage, it is unlikely that a simple clutch adjustment will cure it. Your clutch pedal should have roughly 1" of free play from the top of the clutch pedal, and absolutely no more than 2" free play.
If you have zero free play, it "may" be possible to eliminate the slippage by adjusting the clutch, but you would have to be very lucky to get off that easy.

The slippage means that your clutch disc is most likely worn too thin and possibly glazed, as well as glazing of the flywheel and pressure plate friction surfaces. When the pedal is released, the clutch engages by sandwiching the clutch disc between the flywheel on one side and the clutch pressure plate on the other side. Strong springs in the pressure plate keep the clutch disc tightly sandwiched between the flywheel & pressure plate. Pushing on the clutch pedal releases this tension/pressure.

It's never "just a flywheel". That mechanic is bogus. All 3 parts are affected by worn or slipping clutch. Usually you don't need a new flywheel, as resurfacing it is usually fine & the normal procedure.
But you will need to replace the clutch disc and pressure plate anytime the flywheel is resurfaced.

Resurfacing a flywheel is similar to resurfacing brake rotors on a brake pad replacement (brake job).
Naturally the transmission has to be removed to get access to the clutch components, which is really the biggest part of the job.

Here's a pic of the basic clutch components:

The clutch relies on the pressure between the pressure plate and flywheel. If the pressure is too low, due to weak springs, or worn surfaces, the new disks will be prone to fail. Oil from a bad rear main seal will wipe out clutch components, as well as an improperly adjusted clutch, or bad driving (not you though)
On the hind side, overloading the clutch will wear it also. Shifting too early, bad brakes or bearings. Towing, or the wrong replacement parts. Do this, in high gear, on the highway, step on the throttle. Does the clutch slip? Too weak of pressure. Vibrations or chattering? wrong parts, Oil, or overheating from load. Burning smell? Something is loaded on the driveline or you need to get advice on clutch use. Just sayin for a newbee. Did you turn the surfaces when you changed the clutch? New pressure plate? Clutch disk? Proper Adjustment so it is not engaging? Parking brake not stuck? bearings or brakes hanging?

Why does my clutch suddenly feel like its slipping on my merc capri xr2 turbo, engaging way to late after release of clutch pedal...hydraulic? mechanical? does it need a simple cable adjustment or flu

Got 300zx thats sat for 8 yrs car starts and runs good but clutch is staying engaged.I have heard i need to check slave cylinder if so where is it located


Slave cylinder is located on the side of the transmission behind the main flywheel housing and points towards the engine. Follow the clutch pipe down from the master cylinder. The slave is about 12cm long by 4cm in diameter with a bleed nipple on the top. You may want to change the fluid after 8 years! What can happen if the car has not been moved is that the clutch disc becomes bonded to the flywheel by corrosion, exactly in the same way the brake pads can seize the rotors. Make sure the wheels are free to rotate. Lift a rear wheel clear of the ground and chock the front wheels, as you start the car the differential will transfer the power to the lifted wheel. With the foot hard on the clutch take the engine up to about 2000rpm, hold the accelerator at that speed and pull the hand brake on and off slowly. With luck the snatch of the handbrake biting make break loose the clutch plate. You will know when it breaks free as the engine will rev freely. When you do get it free, slip the clutch for a while to scrape clean the friction plate on the flywheel. Likewise when the car is moving ride the brakes to polish the rotors of corrosion.

How get to flywheel bolts


In the Toyota Pick-ups/Land Cruiser/4Runner 1989-1996 (free register) can find several graphics about this.

Driven Disc and Pressure Plate - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

(see Figures 1 through 27).

cc66ac3.jpg


CAUTION The clutch driven disc may contain asbestos, which has been determined to be a cancer causing agent. Avoid inhaling any dust from any clutch surface! When cleaning clutch surfaces, use a commercially available brake cleaning fluid. Never clean clutch surfaces with compressed air.
  1. Remove the transmission.
  1. Matchmark the clutch cover (pressure plate) and flywheel, indicating their relationship.
  1. Loosen the clutch cover-to-flywheel retaining bolts one turn at a time in a crisscross pattern. The pressure on the clutch disc must be released GRADUALLY.
  1. Remove the clutch cover-to-flywheel bolts. Remove the clutch cover and the clutch disc.
  1. If the clutch throwout bearing is to be replaced, do so at this time as follows:
  1. Remove the bearing retaining clip(s) and remove the bearing and hub.
  2. Remove the release fork and the boot.
  3. The bearing is press fit to the hub. Turn the bearing by hand while placing it under some pressure; check for freedom of motion and lack of grinding or resistance. The bearing is permanently lubricated and cannot be disassembled or greased.
  4. Clean all parts; lightly grease the input shaft splines and all of the contact points.
  5. Install the bearing/hub assembly, fork, boot, and retaining clip(s) in their original locations.
  1. Inspect the flywheel surface for cracks, heat scoring (blue marks), and warpage. If oil is present on the flywheel surface, this indicates that either the engine rear oil seal or the transmission front oil seal is leaking. If necessary, replace the seal(s). If in doubt concerning the condition of the flywheel, consult an automotive machine shop.
  1. Before installing any new parts, make sure that they are clean. During installation, do not get grease or oil on any of the components, as this will shorten clutch life considerably. Grease or fingerprints may be cleaned with an evaporative cleaner such as the type used on brake linings.

To install:
  1. Position the clutch disc against the flywheel. The long side of the splined section faces the flywheel.
  2. Install the clutch cover over the disc and install the bolts loosely. Align the matchmarks made. If a new or rebuilt clutch cover assembly is installed, use the matchmark on the old cover assembly as a reference.

Whenever the clutch disc is replaced, replacement of the pressure plate (clutch cover) and release bearing is highly recommended.
  1. Align the clutch disc with the flywheel using a clutch aligning tool. These handy tools are available in many auto parts stores at a reasonable price. Do NOT attempt to align the clutch disc by eye; use an alignment tool.
  1. With the clutch aligning tool installed, tighten the clutch cover bolts gradually in a star pattern, as is done with lug nuts. Final tighten the bolts to 14 ft. lbs. (19 Nm).
  2. Apply molybdenum disulfide grease or multi-purpose grease to the release fork contact points, the pivot and the clutch disc splines. Install the boot, fork, and bearing on the transmission input shaft.
  3. Install the transmission.
Hope helped.

Skoda fabia 1.4 MPI fitted new clutch, pressure plate, flywheel and bearing. Clutch drags. Difficult to engage gears at rest. Fine when moving. Have taken gearbox out and checked, all fine. Still the same...


bleed out the clutch fluid, to the slave cylinder, it uses the same fluid as in the brake system and takes it from the brake fluid resevour, so dont let it drain low- keep toping it up as you bleed the clutch line, if problem still persists, you must be sure you put the clutch friction plate in the right way.

Clutch problem


Its is totally acceptable to reuse a flywheel as long as it was machined to where a new finish was achieved.A machine shop will cut off about .020"-.050" to achieve a new,machined finsih.Same concept as turning brake rotors when performing a brake job.Have the clutch hydraulics checked,as this is what applies and releases the clutch when actuating the pedal.The clutch pedal engagement point is also adjustable up under the dash.One thing to remember when driving a manual trans vehicle is,for example,when sitting at a stop light.apply the brake and sit still.I can't tell you how many times i've seen people sit at a stop light,and rock the vehicle back and forth by applying then relasing the clutch pedal,causing the vehicle to pull forward a couple feet,then roll back a couple feet,pull forward,and roll back.This severely shortens the lifespan of the clutch,as it gets TOO hot.If at a traffic light,just apply the brake and sit still.There are correct and incorrect ways to drive a manual trans vehicle,all of which is determinate of how long the clutch will last.
