Yes, its time for a new clutch.

you could also have an oil leak(rear main on engine or front seal on trans) that is getting on the clutch causing the slip.

please, don't forget to rate my solution.

THANKS

If it slips u need a new clutch. not a home mechanic job unless you have a complele set of tools, a heavy duty floor jack and safety stands, the car will need to be at least 3 feet off the ground.

2005 holden rodeo RA DX 2.4L ute recent power loss when driving, over revs when changing gears would i need a new clutch installed or cable tightened?


is this a stick shifted car?
the clutch slip is easy to detect, (m/t) the rpm rises, and speed not. (ive burned up many a clutch racing, so know them, and fixed them all self)
yes, adjust the clutch free play , if cable system it gets way off
as you drive, tighter and can cause slip as free play passes ZERO.

Yes probably, it is causing it to slip. The longer you leave it, the quicker you will burn out the clutch.

What weight of oil does the my 1995 Honda Accord with five speed manual transmission required to havein it?


many modern transmissions use a 30 grade straight mineral oil in the box but experience shows that a 80-90 grade OEP oil is still the best for long transmission life
However incorrect oil in the transmission will not make it leak or slip as that section is a clutch problem and if you have oil from the bell housing and a slipping clutch it indicates an over full transmission blowing out the input shaft seal and destroying the clutch
the original occasional slipping clutch indicates a problem in the clutch master cylinder or clutch cable and would have been a cheap fix but by allowing a person who is not trained in procedures , the fix will be in excess of $1000.00 as you now require a new clutch kit and front seal in the transmission

Can the clutch be adjusted in a 2002 Ford Laser KQ?


No it is a self adjusting hydraulic type. If it slips or the pedal has no play the clutch disk is worn out.

I have a 1988 4X4 pick up 4 cylinder. When i start to pull a hill the rpms go up and you can hear the engine revving up but the truch won't pick up speed. I thought the clutch might be slipping but I can...


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.

2000kia sophia clutch slips


If it's slipping it's near the end of its life and you'll have to change it. Make sure to inspect the rear main seal - most of the time a clutch slips because of wear but a rear main seal leak will allow oil to leak onto the disc and it'll slip. In either case you'll need a new clutch but if the seal is leaking it'll ruin the new one too.

1999 carrera c2 feels like my clutch is slipping.


On the old 911's you could adjust the clutch. The new ones are hydraulic and self adjusting. Sounds like you need a new clutch.

My clutch is slipping on my 1993 toyota truck. Are there adjustments I can make myself. I am fairly handy, but not a car repair expert.


Sorry, there are no adjustments on your vehicle., The clutch is activated via hydraulic pressure. The master and slave cylinders are "self-adjusting". If the clutch is slipping, you are going to need to pull the trans and replace the clutch assembly. Changing the hydraulics will not help a slipping clutch at all.

Thanks for choosing FixYa for advice!

Need to replace the clutch myself on a 2006 hyundai tiburon gt


why wont Hyundai fix it
you should get close to 200,000klms from a clutch my car is on its second and its done 352,104klms
Hyundai should warrant there cars they do in Australia
the only reason they wouldn't is if the car has been misused or used in an aggressive meaner
replacing it your self may void your warranty
