Raise and support the vehicle
on jack stands. Remove the intake air temperature wiring, the breather
hose and intake air hose. Take off the air cleaner assembly.
Remove the right wheel. Remove the accessory belts. Remove the
crankshaft bolt and the crankshaft pulley. Remove the power steering
bolts and the timing belt covers. Temporarily install the crankshaft
bolt and turn the engine clockwise until the mark on the crankshaft
pulley, which is a triangle stamped into the crank sprocket, is aligned
with the corresponding triangular mark on the block.
Make sure that the timing marks are aligned on the camshaft sprockets.
These are a line on each sprocket that runs through a tooth on each
sprocket. These lines should line up in the middle between each
sprocket and point toward each other. If they do not line up, turn the
crankshaft one more time and they will line up. It takes two turns of
the crank to one complete revolution of the cam.
Loosen the water pump bolts; using the 3/8-inch ratchet, turn the water
pump clockwise away from the belt and loosely tighten the bolts to keep
it there. Remove the timing belt.
Make sure the timing marks are aligned and install the new belt
starting on the right side from the crank sprocket and working
counterclockwise. Keep all the belt tension on the right side away from
Loosen the bolts in the water pump and rotate the water pump
counterclockwise to apply tension to the belt. Watch the tensioner,
which is above the water pump, and apply tension with the water pump
until the pointer on the tensioner lines up with the notch above it.
Lightly tighten the water-pump bolts.
Turn the engine
two more times and align the timing marks perfectly. Loosen the
water-pump bolts and, using the ratchet, apply tension to the belt
until the tensioner pointers are aligned. Tighten the water-pump bolts.
Install the timing-belt covers and the bolts in the power-steering pump
and tighten. Remove the crankshaft bolt and install the crank pulley
and the bolt, then torque the crankshaft pulley bolt to 70 foot pounds
of torque. Install all components in reverse order of removal.

check the clutch cable as it may be broken. What you have is the clutch not disengaging when you put your foot on the pedal and this indicates a slipped cable adjustment or a broken cable . If hydraulic then the system is full of air and needs bleeding or the slave cylinder and master cylinder need replacing.
Do you have the error code (P0742 = torque converter clutch stuck on...locked and P0741 TCC stuck off). The TCC solenoid replacement for the 4T40E (and 4T45E) is not very expensive but the job of getting the transmission case out from the car is difficult. Unless you have experience of fixing transmissions this is best left to an expert.
changed a clutch on one of these a few weeks ago and cant remember what i done ,old timers i think ?? not sure but its from below with a rear support bracket ,and a inlet manifold stay bar ,,,3/8 drive socket set with a knuckle and 3 long extension bars to get to top inside bolt as well i think ?? honestly cant remember ,i work on all makes and cant remember every one
a lot of times frontwheel drive transaxle gearboxs have the filler hole located where the speedo drive goes into the gear box so you remove that n then tip your oil in... in the workshop manual it will say theres a certain position to fill it to on the speedo drive so in fact the speedo drive is your dipstick..from the info ive got in front of me the transmission takes 75w-90 gear oil n 1.8 litres fill capacity
Hi there, I would be checking the fluid in the clutch master cylinder first, It should have a small yellow lid on it make sure it is full it might only be a hydraulic issue rather than a clutch plate. If it has no fluid in there check the slave cylinder for leaks that is located on the end of the clutch fork on the gearbox. Hopefully thats the problem and it wont cost alot.Good luck.
