I got a new gearbox fitted.new clutch and water pump.

my wrx was working good as normal.then suddenly i tryd to accelerate but the needle was dropping and it wouldn't pick up speed.the car starts, revs, changes gears just when i put my foot on the throttle it wont move at al.
it can be towed.pushed just not driven.

a cloud of black smoke appeared just before the car cut out.

Auto gearboxes are not designed to tow and the clutches are probably wearing or the solenoids are not working properly.

I put a new automatic gearbox and transfer case in my 80 serious Land Cruiser but it wont move when I put it in drive or reverse, what could be the problem?


this is indicative of a torque converter clutch problem
(servo/solenoid )
see as to how you just fitted the transmission I would be checking all wires and connections first
second are you sure that the unit worked before fitting it

What does it mean when my transmission is slipping in first gear and how do i fix it?


is it slipping in way that engine revs hard but car barely moves? if so take car for short drive get up to 30mph in 3rd gear on flat road and floor accelerator, if it slips now then there good chance clutch will need replaced soon, if only in first try pumping pedal firmly and frequently for a minute or so to see if the auto adjust ratchet will release some cable tension, if its an older car s reg for example some of these cars havew a manual adjustment normally at gearbox where cable fits the clutch release lever, normally its two 10mm nuts, one either side of clutch lever, for your problem i would release some tension, prob only 2-3 full turns of nut, this will allow clutch plate to correctly grip flywheel, be sure to road test once adjustment made to confirm simple and smooth selection of all other gears, also dont forget to wind other 10mm bolt up against the one you altered to prevent further unwanted adjustment to cable as over time engine vibrations could cause them to move if not locked off properly.

Sitting still at a light, clutch half way in in neutral, pushed the clutch all the way in to go into first and I heard a popping noise, then it was like the clutch is sticky but with no pressure, its like...


UNfortunately it sounds like your clutch has failed...and is slipping.....it sounds like the pressure plate may have fractured......and considering it is a wrx, this would definetly be the weakest point as the gearboxes are almost indestructible......

Where is the torque converter and drive plate on 97 eclipse gst manual transmission.. so i may markmatch it before removing the tranny


hi, if you have a manual gearbox then you dont have a torque converter a torque converter is what changes the gears in an automatic gearbox as your is manual all you will have inside your gearbox is a pressure plate a clutch plate and a thrust bearing witch operates the clutch when you press the pedal down.
The only thing you need to line up on a manual box is when you have fitted the new clutch you need to have a tool that holds the clutch plate central so that when you tighten the bolts up on the pressure plate the clutch stays central if you dont do this you wont be able to get the gearbox back onto the engine as the spline from the gearbox wont be able to go through the center of the clutch into the engine.

You can make or use you own tool to hold the clitch dead center as long as its a good fit and about the same size as the spline, so once you have the new clutch in and the pressure plate loosely bolted on you can still move the clutch around behind the pressure plate now right in the center their is a hole in the pressure plate and the clutch plate this is where the tool needs to be put so that the clutch plate remains dead center whilst you tighten the pressure plate up this will then make sure that the spline on the gearbox lines up properly not doing this will make it impossible to get the gearbox on properly.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

My 2008 WRX has 22K. The clutch peddle started


Subaru makes/sells a good product. Too bad you've had issues with the clutch in/of your WRX. Since you have 25 years of experience driving manual transmission car(s) you should understand that the problem can not be pinpointed without taking the component apart. Your vehicle is under the manufacturer warranty so Subaru should repair/replace the defective clutch. After the WRX is fixored sell it and buy another VW......Peace
