1992 Toyota Camry - Burnt Out Clutch

I received the above car as a gift, so no money spent yet. The engine runs good and the car ran for about a day. The clutch was slipping and after driving it at too high of a speed, the clutch is completely gone.

My question is this: Is it ONLY the clutch in these cases? Slipping (reving up while in gear at higher RPM's - okay when you took it slow), clutch pedal goes to floor and was staying there. Does it need a new pressure plate, too?

Any help, suggestions, or references would be most appreciated.

Yes, you should change the clutch disc, pressure plate, throw out bearing, pilot bearing (if equipped), and have the flywheel "surfaced". Usually, the clutch disc, pressure plate, and throw out bearing can be obtained as a packaged set or "kit". I would also check the clutch slave cylinder and master cylinder for leaks. Changing the clutch is a big expensive job when done by a shop and is a difficult (but less expensive) job for a do-it-yourselfer---even for somebody with the right tools at hand. Probably why the car was a gift. But if that is all that is wrong, you are still getting a good bargain!

the best suggestion is to give up on replacing compressor clutches and have the system done by an accredited ac specialist shop
excessive pressure from excessive gas is hydraulicing the compressor and making the clutch slip burning it out
next flushing the system removes all of the compressor oil in the system leaving the compressor running virtually dry
next when a system is opened , moisture laden air gets in and that has to be vacuumed out for a period of 2 hours minimum or the water in the air turns to ice and blocks the tx valve
freon gas ( if that the gas that is supposed to be used as many now run r134a) is inserted ,not by the can but by the low pressure and high pressure readings on a manifold gauge designed for that purpose
I would say that by now you would have spent more money than what it would have cost you at the ac specialist shop

So you can race the engine in neutral, and no problem with it trying to die? If that's so, I think you need a clutch job. A clutch disc contaminated with oil or grease will cause jerking and slipping.

Could be the auto transmision. Check the trans oil at the dipstick. If it is brown with a burned nutty smell the transmision will need overhauling or replacing. There are other possible faults such as overheating or not running on all cylinders. You may have to get it checked out by a mechanic.

How to adjust the idle in 1992 toyota camry

sounds like you got water in the throttle position sensor.
that will mess it up.
look on the intake where the throttle cable is connected and on the other end of the intake is the throttle position sensor is located.
if you get water in them they short out and don't work very good anymore.
time for a new one.
if your check engine lite is on then it is most likely the problem
