Thinking its the clutch.

When driving to work this morning I noticed that when I hit the gas the engine rev's but the truck doesnt respond and accelerate like it should. I was thinking the clutch is gone...? Any ideas?

Hi there. Sounds like you have a slipping clutch and it’s most likely one of two main problems. The first is you need to see whether the clutch can be adjusted. If a self adjusting clutch, then the clutch plate may be worn and requires replacement. I’d have the problem checked-out quickly at either a Dealer or Clutch Specialist, the longer the clutch is slipping, the more damage you might be doing to either the flywheel or clutch pressure plate. Hope this helps, Scottech.

Revs on it's own when clutch pushed in


It sounds like you may have a vacuum leak, or 2
Check all hoses around gearbox and engine to ensure they are all a snug fit and do not appear worn or split. You can check for vacuum leaks by spraying a mist in the direct area and watch to see if it gets sucked in. Move each hose around while at idle to see if the revs change.
Good Luck I hope it helps

So a 1994 mazda mx3 with a manual tranmission. When you hit the accelerator when the car is in gear the car will rev but not actually move. We can push the car without an issue so not a brake locked up...


Colybear18,
All the indications you stated above give a clear indication that the clutches are worn completely. What is required is that you get the gear box serviced - changing the clutch disc will make the diffence you are looking for. The burnt smell you noticed was the complete failure of the clutch plate. Hope this helps.... Do have a good day.

Clutch


It does sound like a clutch, but deserves to be more thouroughly checked out, Does the clutch pedal feel normal? is there a little free-travel at the top of the pedal stroke? do you see oil dripping under the car?
Clutches usually go out slowly, they start to slip under heavey load first, then gradually slip even under light loads in low gears. If an axle was loose, it could have spun in it's hub, with the hood open ans an observerstanding beside the car looking down at the axles, slowly let the clutch out (engine running, in reverse gear, ) being careful not to hit your assistant, if the axles turn- one of them, but the wheel doesn't this is your problem. If the axles don't turn with the clutch out, and engine still revs, well it's time for a clutch or transmission, Good luck, hoe this helps

2000 Ford Taurus not getting gas


If your in gear (D) for example and you hit the gas, engine revs, but car doesn't speed up, it's a problem with your transmission, and the first thing you can do is have the fluid level checked, and add fluid if needed. If that's not the cure, take it to a transmission shop & have it diagnosed.
