With 118,000 miles on the clock the clutch is a cert unless the previous owner had one fitted recently

Did the car have a service history log , Did you get a warranty or a 14 day return

If you bought it cash and "as seen" then you are to put it politley "Stuffed"

406 estate 2ltr very loud squeeling noise when change from 1st to 2nd gear ok once in 2nd and above is this the clutch ? can smell a slight burning smell when under the bonnet


Might be the clutch but unlikely if only confined to a single gear and it is usually possible to make a faulty clutch produce noise when stationary to help diagnosis.

If the clutch will transmit the full engine torque without slipping there is unlikely to be much wrong with either the centre plate or the cover. Problems with the release mechanism can often be felt through the clutch pedal and clearly be heard to be in sympathy with clutch pedal operation.

I suggest you check the transmission oil level and then look around for other possible causes if another "look" at the clutch produces no results. Auxilliary belt perhaps...

Have a 94 altima manual transmission I have clutch pressure but when I shift into gear tires don't spin i assume it might be the drive axle


the clutch might be burned, i would get close to the opening where the clutch cylinder is located and see if there is any burning smell first

Lost forward gears


You have lost the 1st, 2nd, etc. in DRIVE? If you put the car in SECOND does it move forward a little bit? Put the car in Manual 2nd, can you shift into DRIVE and feel the third gear? This happened to me. The 'forward clutch' needs replacing. The transmission clutch plates in that part are glazed over because the fluid is burned. See if your fluid is brown.

Just replaced trannie(auto) in 1993 escort, it has a little hesitation when shifting gears and the new oil smells burnt and is frothy on the tip. the level is low could the low fluid level be the problem?


YES! But your tranny has a BAND for first gear, and clutches for 2nd, third, and if equipted, 4th. The bands are usually the cause of the "burnt smell." The foam is cause by fluid aggitation. DO NOT JUST ADD FLUID. Drain the fluid in the tranny case, and replace the filter, and the fluid. I suspect that the salvaged tranny may have a burned 1st gear band.

Sounds like you may have smoked high gear clutches. Check your fluid and see if the color is darker than normal and smells burnt...
