How do I line-up the flywheel timing marks and where are they. I fitted new clutch and had to remove the flywheel


There should have been a dowel pin in crank flange so the flywheel would go back in the same spot. Is it a new flywheel? Was it balanced? There are no timing marks on the flywheel. Does the gear on the starter line up with the flywheel teeth? Does the engine turn over? Would like to help.

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:

My clutch on my 1985 Toyota truck has these problems the gears are hard to engage when truck warms up and now when I Release the clutch it moves less then a half an inch and the truck wants to take off can...


I suspect your clutch and pressure plate needs to be replaced,when you depress your pedal to disengage your transmission from your flywheel the pressure plate is not engaging enough to seperate the two it still has a little contact on your flywheel so it is going to be difficult to change gears and your relief is going to be shorter.If you change it out always remember buy a clutch kit with a clutch plate and pressure plate and pilot bushing and slave cylinder all in one kit.Always remove your flywheel and get it resurfaced that is a must ,the flywheels surface will become uneven over time and minimize your surface area on your disc,by getting it resurfaced it will assure your disc has 100% of the flywheel surface for hook up and when you depress your clutch it will clear your flywheel good luck

How do u change a clutch in a 1990 nissan pickup rwd 2wd four cylinder


You'll need to remove the driveshaft, and transmission crossmember, and then the gearbox and bellhousing from the motor. The clutch disc is between the flywheel and pressure plate. Remove the pressure plate and remove the clutch. You should get the flywheel resurfaced, especially if there are heat spots on it. Also change the throw-out bearing.

How to remove the flywheel ford ranger 3.0 tdci 2008


Hi:
If you already have your transmission removed enough to see that your flywheel is burned and needs resurfaced, you have come along way. To remove the flywheel, you just need to remove the series of bolts that are arranged in a circle, nearer to the center of the flywheel. You need to hold the flywheel still to break them free, and most auto parts stores will sell or loan you a tool to do this.
If you need step by step instructions on your truck, a good investment is a subsription to: www.alldatadiy.com For About $20 you can have everything there is to know about your specific vehicle, and it is a big help to me when I use them.

Clutch shudder and loose gears


It sounds to me like the clutch is slipping or it was not properly adjusted. I would take it back and tell them to take it out for a drive around the block. If they still refuse to do anything about it, take it to another garage and get their opinion. Better yet, get a written estimate. Then take it back to the garage that put the clutch in and tell them either fix the problem for free or you are going to take it elsewhere to get it fixed and sue them in small claims court. I do know that when i replaced my clutch, you need to have about a 100 mile break in. But still, the gears should not be loose and it should shudder. If anything, a new clutch will grab hard with very little play untill it is broke in.
