  • Anonymous May 12, 2009

    wll, i just got the clutch and pressure plate changed when the problem started. I also did the emissions test and the car passed so the cap and seal is not faulty. I noticed that when i put car into first in the morning, the car will struggle slightly to gain momentun unless i start revving high before releasing the clutch. Is there a relation to the problem??

    a loose fuel cap can set a check engine code regarding evaporative emissions. did you check to see if it was loose when you started having the problem?

Clutch stays down. Slowly will take of with clutch fully pressed. Does not slip.dont understand


It sounds as though the clutch pressure plate has become weak.

When you press the clutch pedal the release/throwout bearing presses against the centre of the clutch pressure plate. This causes the metal 'fingers' -the springs- on the pressure plate to flex and release pressure on the driven plate - momentarily disconnecting the drive from engine to gearbox.

The link below is of generic clutch images
how clutch works Google Search

A weak pressure plate isn't fully releasing the driven plate. If you're going to do any replacing of parts - a clutch should be replaced in 3 units: Pressure plate, driven plate and release/throwout bearing.

94 Camero manual trans shifts but when i give it gas to go the engine jus revs car moves at 3 mph or so in all gears even reverse. Any suggestions.??


The clutch driven plate is slipping on the pressure plate. I am afraid the heat caused by this will have damaged the fly wheel ,clutch and pressure plate all will have to be inspected repaired or replaced. If this has just happened you could check out the free play at the clutch slave cylinder rod to the clutch engagement leaver ,the free play should be around 3 mm.

  1. Remove the transmission or transaxle as outlined.
  2. Insert a pilot shaft or an old input shaft into the center of the clutch disc, pressure plate, and the pilot bearing in the crankshaft.
  3. With the pilot tool supporting the clutch disc, loosen the pressure plate bolts gradually and in a crisscross pattern.
  4. Remove the pressure plate and clutch disc.
  5. Clean the transmission and clutch housing. Clean the flywheel surface with a non-oil based solvent. Wash your hands before installing or handling the clutch assembly parts. Hold the clutch disc by the center hub only.

Before assembly, slide the clutch disc up and down on the transmission input shaft to check for any binding. Remove any rough spots with crocus cloth and then lightly coat the shaft with Lubriplate.
  1. To remove the throwout bearing assembly: Remove the return clip and take out the throwout bearing carrier and the bearing.
  2. To replace the throwout arm use a / 16 in. punch, knock out the throwout shaft spring pin and remove the shaft, springs, and the center lever.
  3. Do not immerse the throwout bearing in solvent; it is permanently lubricated. Blow and wipe it clean. Check the bearing for wear, deterioration, or burning. Replace the bearing if there is any question about its condition.
  4. Check the shafts, lever, and springs for wear and defects. Replace them if necessary.
  5. If you hadn't planned on replacing the clutch disc, examine it for the following before reusing it. Loose rivets. Burned facing. Oil or grease on the facing. Less than 0.3mm left between the rivet head and the top of the facing.
  6. Check the pressure plate and replace it if any of the following conditions exist: Scored or excessively worn. Bent or distorted diaphragm spring. Loose rivets.
  7. Insert the control lever into the clutch housing. Install the two return springs and the throwout shaft.
  8. Lock the shift lever to the shaft with the spring pin.
  9. Fill the shaft oil seal with multipurpose grease.
  10. Install the throwout bearing carrier and the bearing. Install the return clip.
  11. Grease the carrier groove and inner surface.
  12. Lightly grease the clutch disc splines.

The clutch is installed with the larger boss facing the transmission.
  1. Support the clutch disc and pressure plate with the pilot tool.
  2. Turn the pressure plate so that its balance mark aligns with the notch in the flywheel.
  3. Install the pressure plate-to-flywheel bolts head-tight. Using a torque wrench and, working in a crisscross pattern, tighten the bolts to 11-15 ft. lbs.
  4. Install the transmission or transaxle as outlined.
  5. Adjust the clutch as described in the following information.

Will not continue running


You'll have to figure out if it is a fuel or ignition problem to proceed.
Is the check engine light on ? Have you checked for trouble codes ?
It could be a relay, the ignition module, coil, fuel pump blockage, or a list of other things. Is the oil pressure light on ?
If this is a vortec engine, it requires 60psi or more of fuel pressure to run. Have you checked the fuel pressure and is it enough ?

I would suspect the pressure plate and clutch need replacing. Your truck is 22 years old and if it has never had the clutch replaced you can almost bet it needs a new clutch and pressure plate. It slips in 4th & 5th gear due to the fact the the ratio is high and it takes more pressure to hold the clutch in place.
