Changed clutch kit 3 times after finding out that oil spills on to the clutch, then Changed the gearbox but the same problem is still there. And now I'm thinking could it be the flywheel? The actual problem is the vehicle has no power especially when on slight hilly road or when you make a move from the traffic lights. Can someone understand the problem? Plz help!!!

The engine has a rear crankshaft seal that will leak into the bell housing and the flywheel can pick up oil and sling it on the clutch.Replacing the seal is the fix for that. As for lack of power, check for a worn timing chain or belt, a bad crank position sensor or a bad camshaft position sensor.

Unsure about Reanult-specific app here, but usually the higher-deck faces the pressure plate. The springs on the disc are higher on one side. I'm sorry I don't know about Renault exactly.

It sounds like you have not put enough oil in, To check the level the vehicle must be running, in neutral. if you can give us s transmission number we can tell you exactly how much and what type of oil should be in it.

SOURCE: clutch slipping when it get hot

My cousin has a 93 2.6L 2 wheel drive Amigo. She was driving u a hill when the clutch started slipping, she had only purchased/started driving the vehicle 6 months before the clutch Slipping occured. I took the Trans out, resurfaced the flywheel, installed a new pilot bearing in the crankshaft, installed a new non factory pressure plate, clutch disc and throw out bearing. I put the trans back in aaand it continued to slip in the exact same way : / . Took trans out a second time, replaced resurfaced flywheel with brand new flywheel, adjusted the clutch pedal to 6.71-7.13 inches from the floor to ensure that the return hole in the clutch master cylinder was not blocked by inner piston. Put everything back together and it STILL! friken slipped like crazy, vehicle wouldn't accelerate quickly and it could not travel faster then 50mph in any gear.

I've read all over the internet and I even talked to the Isuzu dealership shop foreman who said that once the clutch pedal is adjusted correctly the throwout bearing fork/clutch slave should be able to be pushed back/into itself with just a thumb or by hand, if you can't press it back with just a hand then the pedal is misadjusted. He also mentioned that many models have the throw out bearing constantly touching the clutch pressure plate, this is normal on the amigo if its a light ,only just making contact pressure. However if you have a mis-adjusted pedal possibly what could occur is that heat will expand the fluid in the line and will force the pressure into the clutch slave cylinder and press on the clutch as if you were slightly pressing on the pedal and the clutch would begin to slip.

it's my process of elimination hypothesis that . . . either the flywheel's outer diameter raised surface should be machined down some to cause the pressure plate to bolt down lower, causing the pressure plate , pressure surface to push farther up into itself when it makes contact with the clutch disc to give it more spring pressure. OR the clutch disc needs to be thicker causing the same thing oor the pressure plate is weak and needs to be replaced w a more performance brand higher pressure version of a stock pressure plate. Those are the last 3 possible causes of clutch grip failure aka clutch slip.

Sounds like the throwout bearing is going bad. Which is telling you that it might be time for a new clutch kit in your vehicle

I have problem with my Nissan terrano 2 mechanical gearbox. It's hard to put to 1st gear. From 1'st to 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, are also hard. Is it necessary to change clutch?

not a clutch problem unless you have just done a clutch kit change
more likely a hydraulic clutch problem ( air in the system) or master cylinder needing replacement .
if it is a cable operated clutch , replace the clutch

I had had the clutch replaced on my 2007 Suzuki swift sport due to an oil leak on an oil seal at the top of the engine but the problem has come back is the another seal on the gearbox that should have been...

automatic trans right?not stick, both have clutches.!!
so you want us to guess leaks.?
well is it ATF leaking? or engine oil>?>
pink or brown, oil>?
finding A/T leaks is no easy task,
some seals will fail again if the TC is not swapped out.
the seal runs on a metal surface there, and most not be damaged
the pump is there and it can leak.
finding it is no easy task, and very expensive.

find a mech, that will find it
clean it all , drive for 5 miles, see leak now? way 1.
use dye IR light methods
buy the dye kit and put it into the unsaid oil source.
ask any mech, on earth to ID that oil, ATF, GL4, or engine oil
then add dye to that source, and run engine, and load up trans (A/T)
and see it leak and see the dye glow as it does with IR light .
$15 kit, to do.

try top post next time, what engine you have, and what trans.
we cant guess any of that, a swift to me , is a metal cage.
what matters here, is what driveline you have (cage gone)

My pajero manual transmission 4WD has a clanking noise after you have driven it for a long time. when the transmission becomes hot the clanking noise appears. but when i step on the clutch the noise...

a transmission problem when hot, but ok when cold, would suggest that the oil in the gearbox is getting too thin when it heats up.

you say that the transmission has been pulled out but do you know if the oil was actually changed in it.
if the oil has not been changed, drain it and replace with the specified oil.
if it was changed recently, then i would consider using a thicker grade transmission oil instead.

changing gearbox oil, is normally a matter of removing the drain plug on the bottom to drain the old oil, and then refilling using the level plug on the side of the engine.

My transmission makes noise until I depress my clutch

sounds like the main shaft bearings within the gearbox itself. i would of said the release bearing but u already changed it. the main shaft doesnt spin with the clutch pedal pressed. check for oil leaks and check the oil level in the gearbox.

Clutch Noise

Can not seem to get the sound clip to work but from what you have said not only is it pretty obvious but also quite a common failure on Jeeps:

Thrust release bearing

These are part of a 3 in 1 clutch kit, as it is a box out job you may aswel do the clutch at the same time, also check the rear main oil seal (a cheap part that also may aswel be changed while gearbox is off)

Kind regards

dont listen to them, easiest way is: remove air intake box(3 nuts)
remove nuts surrounding the outer gearbox(about 6) and then remove the gearbox mounts
lower the gearbox and move slightly to the drivers-side. best to put a block or jack under it. then take the fly-wheel off(marking where it sits against the clutch kit)
and then pull the clutch plate off, making sure all fingers are not bent. i picked up a full clutch kit 2nd hand for 25$

2000 A4: notchy gear change when the engine is hot

Check the gearbox oil - has this been changed (with the wrong grade) just before the problem started ? May also be too little oil, from a small leak - which will get very thin when then inevitably overheating. Best to change the gearbox oil, note if lots of sludge or debris comes out (or is attached to the drain plug). If oil is the problem, total siezure may be just down the road.

Need to know the torque settings on the fly wheel and on the clutch &preasure plate on daewoo lanos 1998 manual 1.5 ltr thanks.

put some locktight on the flywheel bolts and make sure they are tight by using a impact gun or jam a screwdriver into ringear and a bellhousing bolt as fulcrum and then pull bolts up with a big snap on knuckle bar and go round twice 1/2 inch drive---clutch use a 3/8 socket set and dont over tighten go round at least 3 times and dont forget to put copper grease on the spigot shaft splines .And remember to top the gearbox oil up with EP90 ,and lightly grease the new rear end oil seal you have obviously changed .
