  • It's possible that the flywheel has a rough surface which acts like a file on the clutch disk causing premature wear.

    Sounds like clutch adjustment may be in order.

I have a 1996 Nissan Pulsar Q manual with clutch issues. I had both the clutch and the gear box replaced in 2013.

I suspect it has a hydraulic clutch - some hydraulic clutches share the brake reservoir for fluid. It sounds like there is a leak in the hydraulics for the clutch or the piston in the master cylinder for the clutch is allowing fluid to leak past it. Has the fluid in the brake reservoir been going down?
You may want to check the repair manual (buy a Haynes or Chilton at an auto parts store, or check your local library) to confirm what type clutch you have and the location of the components.

What year manual transmission fits to a 2004 Subaru Impreza WRX?

Pretty much any "EJ" transmission will fit any "EJ" engine, the only problems are whether the clutch is a pull or push type release bearing? That will also make a difference how the clutch slave cylinder mounts up. If it isn't a turbo model trans, it will not take the HP that the engine puts out for very long. The Impreza STI manual trans will bolt up, but there will be some exhaust fitment issues where the down pipe bracket connects to the trans.

My manual transmission 1994 Toyota rav 4 4wd with cdiff lock won't go into gear with the engine on. Only when it is off! I can put it in 2nd then drive off & it drives with no problems once I get it going...

I'm assuming you're talking about a manual transmission and it not going into gear. The problem isn't the transmission. It's the clutch. It isn't disengaging completely when the clutch pedal is depressed. I've never worked on a Rav-4 but must assume it has a hydraulic clutch. It could be an issue with the hydraulic system, especially if the condition came on suddenly, but more likely given it's age it is a worn out pressure plate. This is a job for a professional. There are three basic parts to be replaced: clutch disc, pressure plate, and throw-out bearing. Also, the flywheel should be removed and resurfaced by a machine shop. Don't be surprised if the shop also tells you that the clutch slave-cylinder needs replaced.

Drove fine 4 days ago when last driven however cannot get my manual transmission Porsche 928 to go into any gear even though clutch is depressed all the way? Is this a clutch fluid issue?

It may be. Some models use cable system. Check first the hood if you have a reservoir. This could also mean that you need to replace the clutch disc.

Bought this 2001 honda S2000 in march had a blown engine replaced the crank shaft and the clutch. New clutch went out in less than three weeks. Had car back now for 5 weeks and clutch just went out again....

I know it is not you.
It is most certainly, the folks doing the work on your vehicle,that is a fact.
What work,in detail, is being done,and by whom?
You surely must find this incompetent at best.

Iam praying it not a dealer,I dislike them,but would expect, they could handle a clutch service.

Rear cluch not working

Depends on what model and components you have:

{ ...
In an all-wheel-drive vehicle, engine power can be directed to all four wheels. Subaru Symmetrical AWD differs slightly from model to model in how it directs power to the wheels, depending on its transmission.

MODELS WITH FIVE-SPEED MANUAL TRANSMISSION – CONTINUOUS ALL-WHEEL DRIVE: A viscous-type locking center differential and limited-slip rear differential help distribute torque – normally configured at a 50/50 split front to rear. If wheel speed differs between front and rear axles, the center and/or rear differentials lock up to help distribute power to the wheels with the most traction.

MODELS WITH FOUR-SPEED AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSIONS – ACTIVE ALL-WHEEL DRIVE: An electronically controlled variable transfer clutch and limited-slip rear differential distribute power to where traction is needed. Sensors monitor parameters such as wheel slippage, throttle position, and braking to help determine torque distribution and direct it to the wheels with optimum traction.

MODELS WITH FIVE-SPEED AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION – VARIABLE TORQUE DISTRIBUTION ALL-WHEEL DRIVE: As with Active All-Wheel Drive, an electronically controlled variable transfer clutch distributes power, but through a planetary-type center differential and a viscous-type limited-slip rear differential. Torque distribution is normally configured at a performance-oriented rear-wheel-biased 45/55 split front to rear. Sensors monitor the same parameters as for Active All-Wheel Drive.

WRX STI, WITH SIX-SPEED MANUAL TRANSMISSION – DRIVER CONTROLLED CENTER DIFFERENTIAL (DCCD) ALL-WHEEL DRIVE: The STI uses an electronically managed multi-plate transfer clutch and a mechanical limited-slip differential in conjunction with a planetary-gear-type center differential to control power distribution between the front and rear wheels. Featuring manual and three automatic modes, DCCD is normally configured at a 41/59 split front to rear. Sensors monitor parameters such as wheel slippage, steering angle, throttle position, and braking to help determine torque distribution and direct it to the wheels with optimum traction. DCCD also features a limited-slip helical front and Torsen® rear differential. ... }

And what are the symptoms? How do you know the coupling to the rear is not working?

I'm trying to replace a clutch cable in a '90 subbie legacy. The manual says nothing about removing the cable from the metal bracket that holds it inside the drivers compartment well.. it only says to...

It is not a cotter pin. It us a pin with a clip. Get a screwdriver or blade behind the clip to push it off. The clip is #16 in the pic. Make sure to use a new clip to install the cable.
