    you agree than with the clutch pressure plate from all of the signs?



    Thanks

    do you agree that the clutch pressure plate would cause the engine to rev up when shifting, and the engine feels like it hits a hard dead spot, and does not have good pulling power

    Thanks

Yes. A worn clutch will slip when shifting or under heavy load. And, I would guess that a manual 1991 is probably past due for a clutch job. It will not get any better. This is a heavy job but doable if you have a strong friend and some tools. In addition to a hand full of sockets and end wrenches, you will need a transmission alignment tool that aligns the clutch plate with the pilot bearing in the fly wheel as you bolt on the pressure plate.

Get a box of band aids

What is involved? Drop the drive shaft (easy). Unbolt the transmission and rear motor mount (simple but not easy). Have a bottle jack under the engine to maintain that alignment. Unbolt the pressure plate - pretty simple. Be ready to grab it before it falls upon you or your friend. Remove the flywheel for resurfacing - (very difficult). Most full service auto parts supply houses can refinish the fly wheel - the process is called "cutting". You should also replace the throw-out bearing while you are at it.

Bust your knuckles on the 10th bolt - apply band aid.

Replace the newly refinished fly wheel - easier than removal (get advice on removal at the auto parts place). Buy a reconditioned pressure plate for your vehicle. Get a new Clutch plate. Get the alignment tool (looks like the transmission input shaft and aligns the shaft with the clutch plate splines and the flywheel pilot hole. torque all bolts to specs (ask at the auto parts place).

Move the transmission into place and bolt it together. Observe tightening order and torque. Bust knuckles on the other hand - apply band aid.

reinstall the drive shaft. - drop it on your friends leg

remove the little bottle jack

Take tool inventory

Return the clutch plate and pressure plate for core.

Expect to pay about $250.00 for parts, including the band aids

Your clutch has failed. Big job...transmission needs to be removed. The over-reving you felt was the friction material on the clutch disc not gripping the flywheel.

When I accelerate it does a fluctuation in gears...the rpm goes up and down...even when im driving at 40 mph it shifts then it hesitates at that speed..could it be the throttle sensor is dirty?


Is the "check engine" light on??? to isolate your problem have you tried MANUALLY shifting the trans (automatic) and still doing it?? check the fluid level and condition of the oil...sound more like the trans is slipping...the "TP" sensor will effect the engine and trans.But not cause over-reving......hope this helps...GL

2006 envoy fan clutch or PCM


The emission controls (or PCM) do what you are describing intentionally. There is an electrically controlled fan clutch. It is noisey when cold. The shifts are held to increase engine speed to heat up the catalytic converter faster.

it sounds like you have a vaccum leak more than likely. check near the intake manifold near the fire wall there are several vaccum lines there. also remove the the breather hose and check that your throttle plate is not sticking(this of course only applies if you have fuel injection. if you have a tbi or it's carburated check the throttle linkage to see if it's perhaps sticking
