Hello. The clutch operating system in your vehicle is hydraulically controlled. There are no adjustments. If the clutch is not slipping, going up hills, a replacement is not necessary at this time.

Gears seem to want to slip out and make a winning noise in certain gears too is my gearbox done for or is it more likely clutch it's Audi a3 with 130000 on the clock and clutch is very high too any...

gears slipping out will be indicated by the gear lever jumping into neutral.This can be from incorrect rear engagement from a loose worn pivot in the gear lever tower or something stopping the gear lever from moving properly.. Clutch problems are indicated by --going to the floor. crashing 1st gear, engines rpm s climbing without an appreciable vehicle speed increase. If there is a fault in the gear box it will be only in the gear engaged (missing teeth-chipped ) and not all gears. If it is a bearing then there will be no noise in 4th gear
Boxes are repairable as mostly it only needs that faulty part to be replaced

F250 1997 with standard transmission . all gears change fine except it grinds going into reverse . 156000 kms on it ,

Hi there, Reverse has no synchronisers ( which all other gears have which enables you to change gear almost without the clutch )
So i think the reason for grinding going into reverse is your clutch is not disengaging enough.
This maybe just clutch adjustment ( Sorry i`m not totally familiar with your car to know if adjustment
is possible) or the clutch itself is mechanically faulty
Hope i have been of some help to you.
good luck John ( South Wales UK ).

Hi the chances are the clutch will need replacing if this has not been done before then this is something that will need doing, you need to get the clutch,pressure plate and thrust bearing replaced this all comes in a clutch kit, getting this done will solve your problem

Main problems are computers failing ( especially the one that controls the auto) and random wires breaking.
If it has been looked after and had regular oil changes should be good for another 30 to 80000 miles if maintained properly.
Look for black oil and smoke on over run , Old radiator missing fins, rusty radiator water which should be green or blue ( signs of neglect)

Hi, I have 2002 Legacy L wagon. The clutch is engaging/disengaging very high. Can I adjust it back down?

Sorry your problem is easy ...all you need is a complete new clutch assy .
As the clutch is a self adjusting unit and the only thing that causes it is either you use it like a hotrod and slip the clutch when powering up OR rideing the clutch when on hills or at the lights,,,or the car has done a lot of miles..
But if the clutch drives 1/2 from the top then replace the lot dont replace just centre plate you want the

2002 Ranger Edge 4X4 4.0 automatic. Sometimes the tranny slips between gears, and sometimes overdrive light flashes. light will reset when engine is turned off.

This is the most common problem you find with all the automobiles. This is because of the clutch. So you take to a mechanic and try to get it tuned, if totally warned out then replace the clutch plates. Usually every 50K Kms replacing the clutch plate is advisable.

My advice to take vehicle to the authorized service station to get it done.

Stop driving the car now! The clutch master cylinder has an adjustable pushrod, it is set up too long now. Take it back to where it was done and tell them if they don't know how to set up clutch free play, they shouldn't have attempted the job. This may have cost you a $3500. clutch job. Get it adjusted fast.

To change gears, I need to fully press down on my clutch pedal to stop a grinding noise on my hyundai accent 2001Can I adjust the clutch cable,

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

In a manual 2001 Hyundai Accent, the clutch cable could be adjusted. The adjustment point is on the cable 'pad' where it enters the firewall in the engine compartment.
To adjust, the slack or free play must be decreased. This is done by turning the adjusting nut clockwise. Check back by pressing on the clutch pedal to your preference.
Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.
