Yes, replace it. It wears out just like brake rotors do. If it is too thin the clutch will slip.

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.

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:

Need to know how to replace clutch on my 2004 kia


Hi there,

I hope below steps can help...

1. Remove the transaxle.
2. If the pressure plate will be reused, paint or scribe the alignment marks on the pressure plate and flywheel for assembly reference.


Do not allow oil or grease to contaminate the clutch disc facing Even a trace of oil or grease may cause clutch grabbingor slipping. Handle the disc by its edges and do not touch the facing.
Loosen the pressure plate bolts one turn at a time to release the pressure plate spring tension evenly. A failure to release the tension evenly could cause distortion of the pressure plate.


3. Remove the pressure plate bolts, the pressure plate, and the clutch disc. While loosening the bolts, use SST to prevent turning of the flywheel.

Clutch pressure


Hi there. Sounds like your clutch pressure plate has broken and whilst the clutch feels lighter, under load, especialy when the car is heavily loaded, I think that you will find the clutch will begin slipping. My advice is to have the clutch pressure plate replaced and at the same time replace the clutch plate and most likely the clutch release bearing too. You could keep running the car, but if the broken pressure plate part falls out, you could have an even more expensive repair. The quicker you have the clutch stripped down and repaired the better. Hope this helps. Scottech.

Clutch problem on 1997 neon


It sounds like the clutch is slipping which means replacement. If the engagement occurs 3/4 of pedal travel it means that there is enough movement to fully compress the clutch plate. The plate must be worn severely. Get more than one estimate and they should include clutch plate,pressure plate and release bearing. Good luck.
