Clicking in stickshift when I shift gears

The clicking could be due to worn shifter linkage bushings. As for the chatter you may need to replace the clutch and resurface the flywheel.

Clutch problem...?

Hi Amiralred, I believe the problem is to be found with the clutch plate and most likely to do with a defective center boss. When it is removed I believe you will find that one or more of the torque absorption spring has broken and possibly the center boss. A good idea with clutch plates, is to use original replacement parts if possible. Regards John

What causes a huge amount of chatter I just did the clutch and flywheel through out barringit ran smooth before I did the clutch did I miss something

If it only chatters when you initially disengage the clutch and then the chatter goes away with the transmission fully engaged that the flywheel is the culprit. Even if it was new it should have at least been checked for warpage Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using!

Dodge 2500 2001 clutch chatter

the problem may have been in the damper spring setup in the clutch plate
it the clutch plate was a standard plate , it would have had 4 damper coil springs but the last plate fitted may have been a heavy duty plate that would have had 5 or 6 damper springs
if the springs are of insufficient tension then there is a grabbing action during clutch engagement but with more springs and different tensions that is overcome and the action is a smooth clutch application
manufacturers that have design faults quickly change the design as clutch shops are fussy when it comes to rework so I would think that it is not the clutch but an incorrect plate for the application

I have noise at the clutch and when i press the clutch pedal the noise go off

Did you check you clutch fluid level? It may be low. Also chattering is usally an early sign that the pressure plate/clutch is starting to wear out.

Chatters on take off

Clutch, pressure plate, throw-out bearing needs to be replaced. BE SURE they "turn" the fly wheel to prevent the chatter with the new clutch kit.

Signs of clutch and gearbox failure

If you drive it easy and don't take off lie a rabbit and drive like grandma it would be possible to miss clutch wearing out. As far as gearbox damage is concerned it depends on how long you let it go before fixing. If you have to shove it into gear you can damage syncros and bend shift forks. And if it goes long enough that would ruin the gears and bearings with enough metal in the oil that could wear shaft and bearings. You will get clutch chatter and your performance will be poor mileage will drop. And the clutch chatter can cause the flywheel to be damaged and need to be surfaced, it could burn up the slave cylinder, so it is not wise to let it go, as it will cost more money.

Replacing a clutch on my air conditioner


The clutch is electromagnetic, and therefor if it isn't working then the first things to check would be the fuse, relay, and switch before you condemn the compressor/clutch.

If the clutch is clicking or chattering then it could simply be that the aircon needs regassing.
