Clutch help!!!! Hey guys i'm currently getting my clutch fixed on my 86 Mr2. but the problem is, my mechanic said something about a "fall out berring" or something like that. So we went to a transmission place and they told us theat it didnt come with it, so we called Toyota they said the same thing but the manager at the transmission place said that 85 under came with it but 86 and up didnt so im just trying to verify with you guys if you have any knowledge about it, your help will be very appreciated.

Every clutch has a "throw-out bearing", and the proper term is Release bearing.

You should purchase a good quality complete clutch kit, and make sure that the clutch kit also comes with the pilot bearing as well. Be sure that they re-machine your flywheel to restore proper clutch operation.

Here is a link for you check out for yourself, and you can see that the release bearing and pilot bearing are both included in these clutch kits. You should then be able to purchase a new clutch kit from your local parts store.,model:MR2,year:1986),AND(universal:1))&Vi=1725+11789+4294963916&y=1986&mk=Toyota&md=MR2

My air conditioner does not work on my 06 dodge 2500 5.9 l diesel. The blower motor works fine but the compressor does not engage. I've checked pressures and shows to be charged. What eles could it be?

The factory harness is known to have a voltage drop at the clutch which slips the clutch causing heat and melts the clutch coil and burns the oil out of the berrings, your next problem is going to be a siezed idler berring now the pump turns allways while the engine is running, over pressurizes pops something (mine was the evap core, under the dash), then the pump berring goes out spitting metal trash through your whole system. It all in all is a very expensive problem, replace your compressor "now" with an updated version clutch, and replace your harness to the compressor, before this $2500 problem happens to your truck then call dodge and complain! I am on my second compressor at 70k on my 2006 cummins, my compressor supplier said he sells 200 of these a month! Gee do you think its a manufacturers error???

My 89' MR2 grinds going int to reverse and stalls into first. How do i fix it?

This sounds like a weak clutch pressure plate. To cure this fault you will need to have the clutch replaced. Hope this helps...

I have a 95 Explorer Sport and let the clutch fluid get to low.I've bled the system of air(I think)and clutch seems to work fine for a few days but then pedal goes to floor with no warning.I don't see any...

limited income: Rebuild your clutch slave cylinder first, next time do your clutch master cylinder. *****Preferred course of action*****: Since you see no fluid leaks it is most likely the master cylinder, but spend the money to get a guaranteed rebuilt one rather than do it yourself...

I was driving and my clutch hit the floor, I think it may be the slave cylinder or master cylinder. Im preatty familiar wih cars and wonddered if this was something I could repleace myself?

Yes, If you feel you have the mechanical ability this fix should not be too difficult. Ber certain to bleed al of the air for the clutch line assleble after the repair.
I hope this may have helped,

A few issues... '86 MR2

Hi, James. Your description sounds very much like a slipping alternator belt.  The squealing is common when cold because the rubber is harder when cold.  The battery needing a charge after every use also sounds like a possibility.  The fact that when you are experiencing this problem, the car doesn't seem to rev up (which is what I understood from your description) also fits as a symptom for a slipping alternator belt, bad alternator, etc...
I'm also not surprised if your alternator light is not coming on, because when I had my '86 MR-2, I had a similar problem, which turned out to be that a contact point had cracked in the circuit that is behind the instrument cluster causing all kinds of missed alerts from the car (for example, I never knew when the car was running hot because the temperature gauge would not come on, and the check engine light had been on for as long as I had the car, but I didn't know because the instrument cluster was not working properly.  When I fixed the instrument cluster, I discovered the car's computer had ben sending me all kinds of error codes without me knowing).
The good news about this is that this is your project car, and as such, you are probably not in a spot where you may be late for work because of this problem with your battery getting drained.
The bad news is that MR-2's are getting harder to come by for parts, so you may end up having to order them through the web.
I miss my MR2, so I hope this helps you as it helped me.

Its really,really hard to shift into gear if at all

nothing wrong that an accredited mechanic can't fix
the clutch was installed incorrectly by the " mechanic" and the jib will have to be done again
suggest that you find an accredited qualified mechanic to do the job

MR2 after 2 mins of starting the smt light comes on.

it sounds like the clutch actuator is worn out.
The clutch actuator has 2 parts:
1. the clutch master cylinder
2. the clutch slave cylinder.

Try to replace the slave cylinder first, and if it is still not solving the problem, then try to replace the clutch master cylinder

Good Luck

Transmission or Clutch problem?

Jeep #1: Sounds like a shift linkage problem. Possibly synchro forks are sliding back and forth on shift rails and are out of adjustment. This is internal and cannot readily be fixed without trans removal as far as I know. Hydraulic clutch system is non-adjustable. A new clutch should last at least 70K so, unless it was installed improperly, it should be OK. Check hydraulics for leaks & bleed. Clutch should "catch" about two inches off floor (not too low or not too near top of travel)
Jeep#2: Has a synchro or other internal gear problem... Symptoms are similar but gringing and clicking noises indicate worn or broken internal components!
Good luck to both!

Just a thought
We had problem with gear being difficult to select.
Found that one of the gearbox to engine bolts was loose.
Difficult to get to them but when tightened the gears select ok.
