How long does a clutch last

hi, i take it your vehicle is a manual or stick shift, to check your clutch you use 4th gear and with the engine running drop the clutch to see if it either stalls out the engine or slips. if your clutch cable is broken you will need to repair that first. with engine off engage first gear and attempt to start it, make sure there are no children or animals close to the vehicle, if the clutch is ok with your pedal pushed down the car will start, otherwise it will crawl at a very slow speed, needing repair.

Driving 95 camry manual then clutch went super tight stiff could not change gears i suspect clutch broken?

The clutch is operated by a steel cable moving in a sheath when the clutch pedal is depressed and released. This operation is very similar to the hand brake of a bicycle.

If dirt enters the cable and becomes lodged between the sheath and cable, it will require more pressure to be applied on the clutch pedal to operate the clutch. The same thing can happen if water enters - it can cause rust to form on the cable and sheath with the same results. Because is requires more pressure to operate, the small individual steel strands the make up the cable may break - and the broken ends become jammed in the inside of the sheath. Because your leg muscles are some of the most powerful in the body, you can generally easily overcome the additional resistance offered by the rust / dirt. Only when the damage is done do you realize there's a problem.

It sounds like the clutch is not being allowed fully released - so it is slipping while driving. This is likely to be the source of the burning smell you are noticing. If you continue to drive the car without being fixed, you will need to have internal clutch parts replaced sooner that the normal replacement interval (the clutch is a normally replaced item similar to brakes).

The fix is replacing the cable itself (if it is a cable related problem). Your local mechanic can do this job fairly inexpensively. If it is the results of clutch parts in the transmission that have failed (pressure plate, throw out bearing, etc.) the repair costs can rise quickly.

I hope this helps and good luck!

Transmission making noise and speedodometer quit, my 1995 corolla the speed odometer quit, the transmission starting making noise and went out of gear and back, is my tranmission broken and or repairable,...

The slipping could be low fluid. If you have an automatic, You didn't mention the type transmission, check the fluid and add if needed. If you have a standard you need to get to the check plug under the vehicle. You check that level by removing the plug and sticking your finger in the hole. The fluid should be to up to the bottom of the check hole. The transmission is most likely repairable and cost will depend on whether it is a Manual or Automatic and what actually needs to be repaired. This could be a simple adjustment to the bands and solenoids in the transmission or a clutch issue but you won't know till you take it to a shop. The speedometer could be a broken cable or broken speed sensor, both are repairable and actually don't cost that much. Another possibility is the speedometer itself having a broken spring inside.

I have a '99 Saturn SL1 5 speed manual transmission. i was teaching my son to drive. he was at a stop sign and put it in first and when he tried to go, there was a bang, the shifter shot back into...

With an assistant check to see if the shifting cables are moving the arms on the transaxel, if not then it may be a broken cable. The most likley is there is something broken in the drive line, [ clutch, input shaft to Trans, final drive gear[s] in Trans, Axel shaft, etc.] First look to see if the the axels are bad. Then you can check the final drive by jacking up one front wheel [ making sure the other is firmly on the ground ] and try to rotate the lifted one, it shouldn't spin. You can see if the clutch or the input shaft is bad by putting the car in gear and seeing if you can push the car with out the engine rotating. Any of the problems will be costly to repair, axel and cable the least.

Clutch peddle not working will it be a broken cable

The clutch cable comes in through the engine compartment and I can assure you - you will need to have this repaired. BUT -- now if you want to repair it - why not go to a junk yard and see what it involves to remove an old one - this will teach you how to replace the new one - good training and a cheap used cable. YOU CAN do it with some patience - still you will have the part so you can save some money that way. c7d36ce.jpg
