    Possibly incorrect clutch application. It may have been boxed wrong even though part numbers match. Did you slide the clutch disc over the transmission input shaft to make sure it fit before installing to the vehicle

Why does the clutch slip intermittently on my Audi A4 2009 Diesel in high gears


Agreed. The clutch disk is likely worn. The pressure plate is self adjusting so there is no adjustment available on stock Audi pressure plates or indeed in most pressure plates.

Another possible cause is a leaking rear main engine seal that is allowing engine oil to seep and then be thrown around the bell housing and work its way onto the flywheel/clutch/pressure plate.

Test you clutch in 3-4 gear acceleration from a slow speed...if the engine speed flares faster than the car accelerates, you have a worn/bad clutch.

Transmission on 95 blazer shifted until installed now wont pull into gear..why


Is this true even when engine not running? If so, trans input shaft must not have gone into pilot bushing correctly, or clutch disk jammed it. suggest loosening trans bolts to see if it moves back as you do. Otherwise, shifter installed incorrectly. Stick shift, true?

206 w reg fitted new clutch but now have no biting point so car will not pull away help


Hello, Who installed the clutch"? Were there a new pressure plate installed? Were there a new throw out bearing installed. Does this 1991 Peugeot 405 have hydraulic or mechanical clutch linkage?
There a couple of reason why the Peugeot wont move and engine is running and the transmission is in gear.

1.. Pressure plate is installed backwards.--Remove transmission and reinstall pressure plate in the correct orientation to the clutch. There is two ways to install it, but one way correctly.

2. Adjustment for the clutch linkage from the pedal in the driver compartment is adjusted to tight and not releasing the clutch to where the clutch pressure is on the pressure plate.



I hope this helps. GB....stewbison

Car wont go into gear when the car is running but will if the car is off and i just had the cluch replaced


Do you have pressure from the clutch assemble,or clutch pedal. if you do then the problem is the installation of the clutch,we know trans axle is good because you can put it in gear with the engine off the problem will be a clutch plate assemble. and the slide bearing release fork, the clutch pressure plate are the connecting link between the engine and trans axle,when you release the clutch the disk and plate joins the engine and trans axle togeter.when the car is runing the transaxle synchronizer will not let you go in gear. but when engine is off the pressure plate is non operational and the T.O bearing . Your fix is a Prssure Plate. (your basically slipping)

Prety simple job here. Sounds like you either have not put the pilot bushing in the end of the crankshaft, have not lubed it, have the incorrect one, or have the clutch disc put in backward. lets take them one at a time: 1 no pilot bushing, this is self explanatory. 2 No lube, you need a small dab of grease on the very end of the trans input shaft, where it slides into the pilot bushing. 3 Incorrect bushing, the pilot bushing should slide easily on to the end of the trans. input shaft, but should not be loose and able to flop around. Clutch disc installed backward, the disc is flat on one side and the hub sticks out on the other side, the side with the hub sticking out goes in away from the flywheel, it actually sticks into the clutch cover plate( pressure plate).

Well, there is only one thing I can think of in your situation. Your pressure plates just simply are not creating enough pressure to allow the gears to engage. Either you have a defective clutch and it needs to be replaced, or possibly just needs a ton of adjustment. When you put it in 1st gear while engine is off, then start it and take off that works b/c there is enough pressure to keep the gears from starting to move when not already moving. However when they are already moving, there is just not enough pressure to stop them from turning, not even long enough to shift. Have you tried forcing it into 2,3, or 4 while driving without the clutch? As long as you achieve the correct RPM's your transmission should be able to do so.

1992 honda prelude transmission wont go into gear


Sounds like the pressure plate! Try this, rev the engine for a sec then when it starts to slows down try to put it in reverse - if the gears grind, its the pressure plate which will come with the clutch kit for about 125-175.00.
