That sounds like the engine mounts are broken, or well on their way to it. Just look at the rubbers inside the mounts, if they are cracked or damaged, they need replacing.

The Clutch disc and Release Bearing for the TD4-Freelander, were replaced recently. The Pressure Plate was still in a good condition.Gears difficult to engage.Please advise.Tks.John.

Most likely still has air in hydraulic clutch slave system. Many transmisions will have dificulty shifting if clutch doesn't full disengage. If air is in system it won't allow full disengage thus difficulty in shifting even possible grinding gears

When i start to drive in first gear, i experience extreme shaking

If you have a manual gear box there are two things that you can check. First is the engine mounts especially the rear one to see if the rubber has broken away. Check all engine mounts for the same problem.. The second is a failing clutch or if you have a cable operated clutch it points to engine mounts. What appears to be happening is when you engage the clutch in first gear the torque reaction of the engine is rolling the gear box away from the clutch actuation arm or lever. The clutch slips ,the engine rolls back ,the clutch engages , the engine rolls and so you have a bad shudder. When you are moving the reaction is less as you move up through the gears . If all is good then have a qualified clutch and brake specialist do a check on the clutch itself.

Stripped clutch in truck

The clutch cannot be stripped as it has no teeth so exactly what do you mean? If the clutch is slipping when you take you foot of the pedal. IN this case check for clutch bear throw arm clearance to slave cylinder piston.(change the clutch master cylinder) If you cannot engage gears because the clutch is not releasing then check the fluid level and bleed the clutch system. If you mean that the vehicle shudders when you are trying to move off then replace the clutch

How do can you roll start a 86 samurai

Engage two wheel drive. Switch on the ignition. Pull out the choke? Engage second gear and release the hand brake. Depress the clutch pedal and get the vehicle up to about 6-8 mph. Release the clutch and the engine should be turned by the rotation of the wheels - and hopefully start. Once the engine has caught, depress the clutch and keep the engine running in the normal manner.

Car shudders when taking off

If this is a standard transmission, I would bet money that what you are experiencing is clutch chatter. The clutch may still seem to be working ok, but it will definitely get worse. if you have an automatic transmission, please clarify.

TRAns prob.. 93 mitsubishi eclipse..

This usually indicates a pressure plate spring is bound up and/or throwout bearing. Here are a few things to check...You are certain there is no air in the system, including slave cylinder....The pedal free play adjustment is important as well. On the Galant there is a locknut you loosen, then turn the pushrod until the freeplay is correct.
Did you move the release bearing lever to engage the release bearing with the wedge collar on install? Clutch plate facing the right direction? Did you have the flywheel resurfaced? Input shaft on transmission ok? Will the car roll in gear?
Good luck..i hope this helps.

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.
