1984 Porsche 944 Clutch Slipping

I have a 1984 Porsche 944. I just replaced the clutch and now after a day or so of driving the clutch starts to slip. I can fix the problem but only for a day or so by bleeding the hydraulic lines, there seams to be some residual pressure left behind in the lines when I am having the problem because when I crack the bleeder valve on the slave cylinder it squirts out some fluid. For some reason it seams that the slave cylinder is not returning all the way when the clutch pedal is released so it is not allowing the clutch plate to fully engage. Do you have any ideas what the problem might be?

SOURCE: 1985 944 porsche speedometer stop working

There is a gear in the speedo that breaks. This is plastic gear on a metal shaft. The last fix I did was to remove speedo and open it up. I super glued the cracked gear to the shaft because I was unable to find a new one. It worked again with no future problems. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: 1987 944 clutch pedal stays on the floor

look, if the clutch pedal is to the floor, there are about 3 different things that could be wrong. First check brake fluid to make sure full, see if there is any leakage under steering wheel and below transmission. Next could be the slave cylinder, it could be faulty or not bled right. Last it could be the master cylinder. If when you bleed the slave cylinder and have no movement in the arm inside the transmission then most likely the master cylinder is broken. Look under the steering wheel and see if everything looks entact. Watch the movement of the pedal and see if movement looks normal and see if fully attached. Good luck. Check for any problem in which you want to fix yourself. Great free site.

SOURCE: clutch

Ck for return spring at clutch lever. Check to see if spring pulls back slave cylinder rod by havung someone push the clutch pedal down and release as you watch it function below. Then open bleeder at slave and check for residual pressure. The rod at the master clutch cylinder may be adjustable, shortenten it so the cylinder is fully relealeased with little to no pedal pressure. Good Luck

Stop driving the car now! The clutch master cylinder has an adjustable pushrod, it is set up too long now. Take it back to where it was done and tell them if they don't know how to set up clutch free play, they shouldn't have attempted the job. This may have cost you a $3500. clutch job. Get it adjusted fast.
