YESsorry to tell you but if it drives all the way out and as soon as you rest your foot on it it starts to slip YES its no good and the only answer is replacement.. and replace with a kit {the whole lot not just the centre plate) as you will be wasting your time and money..

1994 ford mustang 3.8 liter a.c. compressor clutch will not stay engaged, blower fan works but not cold. freon is good


What is the pressure in your low pressure side at 80 degrees ambient? Did you use gauges?
U said the clutch will not stay engaged, meaning that it engages and then releases. If so, that means the clutch winding is good but that perhaps you have a loose wire feeding the clutch or a bad, intermittent relay. And if that is not the case then you are LOW in freon and the low pressure cut off switch is disconnecting the clutch when the pressure goes down. Pressure should be around 35 pounds on suction line at about 3000 rpm.

I have a honda accord coupe 94 the clutch stops workin after i start the car i ihe car doest accelerates


If you mean you step on the clutch, put transmission in gear and release clutch with no engagement (pedal returns to top position) there is a good chance your clutch disc or pressure plate, or both are worn out and need replacing.
If your clutch pedal is going to the floor and not returning there could be a leak in the system, a bad clutch master cylinder or a bad slave cylinder on the transmission. Check the fluid level in the clutch master cylinder. If it is low or empty you have a leak or component failure. Visually inspect clutch master, line, slave cylinder for fluid leaks. replace as needed. If hydraulics are o.k., suspect clutch disc/pressure plate.

How to adjust 95 geo tracker clutch


engaging?
you meant dis-engage im sure.
pedal up is engaged,
pedal at floor dis-engages it.
my guess, is the clutch drags unless i push the clutch pedal 100%
to the floor.
1: bad cable is 90% cause. non last this long.
2: no free play is way too loose.
3: broken lever on the pedal top. caused by #1

Clutch pedal travel


Your pedal height may be adjustable by a stopper bolt at top of pedal. You would have to check the specification for your car. Most important that the pedal has about a half inch free travel before clutch begins to engage. You need that free play to ensure the release bearing (the throw-out bearing) is not touching the fingers on the pressure plate when not engaged. If it always is touching, it will be rolling around constantly and will go out prematurely.
Your new clutch will allow gear engagement sooner as the clutch pedal is released. I mean gears will engage just as pedal is lifting off from floor. You should notice that difference-the old clutch would have taken longer pedal travel from floor before releasing.

Clutch problem on Audi A3. Clutch only engages in top third of travel and does not slip. When clutch is fully depressed however it still drags and I cannot engage a gear. Switch off the engine, engage...


Engaging in the top third of pedal travel isn't unusual.

Clutch drag can be caused by a worn or broken diaphragm, damaged pressure plate, worn or damaged withdrawal mechanism or contamination of the driven plate, among other things...
There are two other causes of clutch drag worth considering - rusted or damaged first motion shaft splines or a bad clutch pilot bearing, if fitted.

In all cases the transmission will have to be removed for access.

I Have A Mercedes Benz E40 2002 AC Compressor Is Not Turning On But A Mechanic Checked It Once And Compressor Is Good And No Licks Is Founded What you Think Its The Problem?


The compressor is not turning due to the clutch is not engaged. The clutch is only engaged after a total check from the controller then a signal is generated to turn on the clutch. This is a series of sensor check to meet the requirement. It means you have to check: The refrigerant pressure switch check to make sure there is enogh coolant, The coolant sensor -if it signal too hot, clutch not engaged, The speed sensor from the back of compressor to compare the speed of of the camshaft to prevent the compressor looked up, The sensor at the evaporator, if it is bad, it senses too cold then the clutch will not engage, The sensor near the reading lights to check cabin temperature... All these make the AC repair for this car is expensive, and not any one can fix the AC in this kind of car. Don't try to find any local repairman to attempt the fix, since it ends up costing you more than what it needs to be. Good luck.

Have a 2000 vw bug a/c blowing hot air bought a home kit to fill it and when i put the gauge on it spun the needle all the way around. need to know what that means


Check to see if A/C clutch is engaging. If it is not engaging, the compressor is not starting which will prevent the freon from being sucked into the system.

Look at the front of the ac compressor and have someone turn on the ac from inside the car. The front of the pulley(clutch) will spin when turned on.

If it does not spin, the low pressure switch (LPS) is not satisfied. Meaning there is not enough freon in the system to operate the system. Probably means a significant leak.

The LPS can be jumpered to cause the compressor to run (clutch to engaged) which will draw the freon in the system.

The LPS is usually a two wire sensor on the suction of the compressor. (between evaporator and compressor) Unplug the sensor and install a jumper, this will engage the clutch.

However, if it is empty the leak must be repaired.

The capacity of the ac system will be on a label under the hood, do not overfill. Probably about 2 lbs. Local parts stores (Auto Zone and Advance) will have freon with stop leak. This may help the leak. They also make a freon with a UV dye. I always add a single can with dye so that if stop leak does not work I can find the leak in the future.

The system should be filled until suction pressure is about 36 psi.

2004 Honda Element...the clutch pedal engaging at 50%


Hi:
You could have a problem with your pressure plate, but you need to check out your clutch master cylinder and slave cylinder too. Check the clutch master cylinder fluid reservoir, and make sure it is full. It is located on the back wall of the engine compartment, approx right in front of your clutch pedal. If it is low, or you notice any fluid leakage, you need to address what caused that. You can bleed the system too, but that won't repair the problem.

Nissan clutch problem


If your not able to shift into any gear that means your clutch is not engage/disengaging. Check for fluid leaks, you said topped off and fluid levels were low? It sounds like you have a Slave cylinder or master cylinder leak, if its leaking its bet to replace both.
