    installed it with alignment tool provided in the clutch kit. Don't know how to get it any straighter. Clogged with what? from the engine block to the transmission all parts are new. Bell hsg. was clean as new,and the clutch is not enabling the connection between the engine & trans, that's exactly my problem.

Are you sure the clutch disc is installed in the correct direction?
Admittedly, I haven't seen the clutch disc for a Mitsubishi 3000GT, but I have seen my share in many makes of vehicles.

The clutch disc may be one of those that will install in either direction. Some clutch discs are made so that the inner hub with springs, can be installed towards the crankshaft, or towards the tranny.

There can be a handful of reasons. First, the clutch is not well placed or the Clutch Disc not tightly fitted in its position between the Flywheel and the Pressure Belt. Also the Disc of the Clutch can't rotate because of clogging. Also check that the Clutch is absorbing heat. And also check that is the Clutch enabling the connection between the Engine and the Transmission.
Kindly contact a Mechanic certified for this field and get the Clutch checked.
Thank you Sir, Have a nice day.

I haven't go to Nissan Altima I just replace the clutch and the hydraulic slave cylinder but when the car is not running it will slide through the gears but when the car is running it won't go into any...


Make sure the throw out bearing is fitted to the clutch fork and the bearing is the same length as the old one , move the fork by hand to make sure it engages with the clutch pressure plate , if the slave cylinder rod has a adjustment nut adjust the free play at the fork to 1/8 inch . provided the clutch driven plate an throw out bearing are fitted ok and the hydraulic system is ok , it should be ok

Car won t move in any gear


Did you also replace the pressure plate? Pilot bearing? If you replaced the clutch...and the car moved, and then stopped moving again...your issue is likely right there, bad pressure plate, flywheel may need resurfaced or replaced ETC. I am curious to know what the old clutch disc looked like when you took it out. Was it glazed or worn? I would pull the tranny again, and look at the new disc to see if it is glazed looking from slipping...and note if it is both sides, or one side, and which side...plate side or flywheel side. If you didn't replace the pressure plate/pilot bearing with the clutch disc...I would do that.

Replace clutch


A new clutch kit or clutch package has 3 major parts: a new clutch disc (the thin plate with the abrasive surface), a new or reconditioned clutch pressure plate, and a new clutch release bearing (aka, throw-out bearing). Approximately $200 for the package.
Some people have been known to change only the clutch disc (for about $30), and use their old pressure plate and throw-out bearing. Not recommended-same people have been known to have to go back sooner than later to then replace the pressure plate and release bearing. Do it all once, then you won't have to go back and re-do it.

Have you checked the hydraulic clutch operation? Before condemning the clutch disc for failure, make sure the hydraulic clutch cylinder causes the clutch fork or lever to have sufficient travel to engage the clutch when the pedal is depressed. Also check the clutch fluid reservoir for being full.

94 Chevy 2500 Clutch Engagement?


You probably have a hydraulic clutch. A hydraulic clutch has both a master and a slave cylinder. The slave cylinder engages/disengages the clutch plate. You might be low on clutch fluid in the master cylinder, or the system may need to bled similar to bleeding brakes. Worst case is you need a new clutch, pressure plate, and throwout bearing. They should all be replaced when doing a clutch job.

Hi

It sounds like during installation one of 3 things could have happened.
1) The splines got messed up stabbing the transmission, or
2) the plate got bent itself or
3) the plate is in backwards
Also If you do have leaking on your master cylinder then that will be your problem obviously.
Your master cylinder is designed to compress DOT3 Fluid with one cylinder piston, against another cylinder piston which creates force against a clutch fork that presses your throw out bearing. Your TOB then presses against your clutches pressure plate, the pressure plate releases from the clutch disk which is transferring torque into transmission from your engine. Now you have gears within your transmission that are moving at two different speeds, and a synchronizer within your transmission slips onto teeth to match those two speeds and to lock the gears to a shaft and transfer your torque to an output shaft and then on wards towards your differential gear and thus to your wheels etc.

SO, if your clutch isnt being released enough to allow your synchronizers to lock onto the wanted gear, then its obviously not going to go into gear.
You could try and bleed it one more time but it sounds like the disc is hanging up and not allowing the transmission to spin freely. Either the clutch free play needs adjusting (non-hydraulic clutch) or the pressure plate is not stopping the flywheel and will need replaced. Try adjusting the pushrod between the pedal & master to give you more clutch travel.

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

Yes it is time to install a new clutch kit(clutch disc,pressure plate ,throw out bearing and pilot bearing)also have the flywheel resurfaced.The disc has gotten too thin to be clamped by the pressure plate.Best if you replace everything at once with new parts,avoid rebuilt parts.Good luck!

How to fit a new clutch into a ford escort 1300cc 1994


1991-96 Models
See Figures 1, 2 and 3
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  3. Remove the transaxle assembly.
  4. If the clutch assembly is to be reused, matchmark the pressure plate and the flywheel so they can be assembled in the same position.
  5. Install flywheel holding tool T84P-6375-A or equivalent, in a transaxle mounting hole on the engine and engage the tooth of the holding tool into the flywheel ring gear.



0900c1528008df86.jpg enlarge_icon.gifenlarge_tooltip.gif Fig. Fig. 1: Install a flywheel holding tool in a transaxle mounting hole on the engine, and engage the tooth of the tool into the flywheel ring gear
  1. Loosen the pressure plate-to-flywheel retaining bolts one turn at a time, in a crisscross pattern, until the spring tension is relieved, to prevent pressure plate cover distortion.
  2. Support the pressure plate and unfasten the retaining bolts. Remove the pressure plate and clutch disc from the flywheel.

If the flywheel shows any signs of overheating (blue discoloration) or if it is badly grooved or scored, it should be refaced or replaced.
  1. Inspect the flywheel, clutch disc, pressure plate, release bearing, pilot bearing and the clutch fork for wear. Replace parts as needed.

To install:
  1. If removed, install a new pilot bearing using a suitable installation tool.
  2. If removed, install the flywheel. Make sure the flywheel and crankshaft flange mating surfaces are clean. Tighten the flywheel retaining bolts to 71-76 ft. lbs. (96-103 Nm) on the 1.8L engine or 54-67 ft. lbs. (73-91 Nm) on the 1.9L engine.
  3. Clean the pressure plate and flywheel surfaces thoroughly. Position the clutch disc and pressure plate into the installed position and support them with a dummy shaft or clutch aligning tool. If the clutch assembly is being reused, align the matchmarks that were made during the removal procedure.
  4. Install the pressure plate-to-flywheel retaining bolts. Tighten the bolts in the correct sequence to 13-20 ft. lbs. (18-26 Nm). Remove the alignment tool.

  1. If the release bearing was removed, lubricate the release fork where it contacts the bearing and install the bearing in the fork.
  2. Install the transaxle assembly.
  3. Lower the vehicle.
  4. Bleed the hydraulic clutch system, if needed.
  5. Connect the negative battery cable.
  6. Road test the vehicle and check the clutch for proper operation.

Trying to figure out how to adjust the clutch on a 2005 Toyota Corolla style s


You car does not have an "adjustable" clutch. The Corolla uses a hydraulic clutch. The action of the hydraulics eliminates the need for adjustements. If the clutch is slipping, you may need to replace the clutch.

Clutch slipping when it get hot


Check the adjustment of the clutch push rod. It is the rod that connects the clutch pedal to the clutch master cylinder.
