Does the car only move when the clutch peddle is right at the top.. if so the clutch disk is worn out and you need a new clutch.

Car won t move in any gear


Did you also replace the pressure plate? Pilot bearing? If you replaced the clutch...and the car moved, and then stopped moving again...your issue is likely right there, bad pressure plate, flywheel may need resurfaced or replaced ETC. I am curious to know what the old clutch disc looked like when you took it out. Was it glazed or worn? I would pull the tranny again, and look at the new disc to see if it is glazed looking from slipping...and note if it is both sides, or one side, and which side...plate side or flywheel side. If you didn't replace the pressure plate/pilot bearing with the clutch disc...I would do that.

Low power


if it revs a lot but doesn't actually speed up, that means the clutch is slipping. This can occur if transmission oil is LOW but also the clutch plate is a wearable item and does need replacing once worn out. Your actual transmission should be ok if this is all the problem is. The clutch is essentially what transfers the power from the engine to the transmission, through the use of the clutch pedal. the clutch is made up of a clutch disc, and a pressure plate, and a pilot bearing, more or less.

The clutch disc acts sort of like a brake pad, and sits in between the pressure plate and the flywheel. When you let off of the clutch pedal, the pressure plate contacts the clutch disc, and pushes it against the flywheel, locking the transmission and motor together, thus transferring engine power to the transmission.

When the clutch wears out, the clutch disc no longer has enough friction material to effectively 'lock' both together, and the full power can no longer be transferred, which is when the transmission slips. Eventually the car won't move if it isn't replaced.

In my opinion it'd be in your best interest to take it to your local dealer and have them check it out.

This is a common issue with any transmission of a car, and it is a fairly straightforward fix, however it may be somewhat pricey as it is a labor intensive job.

1998 ford contour 2.5 ltr manual,stuck in second and have to hold the clutch in to move it.how do i solve this issue?


SECTION 308-00: Manual Transmission/Transaxle and Clutch - General Information 1998 Contour/Mystique Workshop Manual DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION Manual Transaxle and Clutch Manual Transaxle and Clutch - General Information This section covers general procedures for diagnosis and testing the clutch system. For additional information, refer to Section 308-01 . For specified clutch system service procedures. For additional information, refer to Section 308-02 . For a complete description of the manual transaxle. For additional information, refer to Section 308-03 .
The clutch system includes:
  • Flywheel.
  • Clutch disc.
  • Clutch pressure plate.
  • Clutch master cylinder.
  • Clutch slave cylinder.
  • Clutch release fork.
  • Clutch release hub and bearing.
The clutch master cylinder transmits fluid pressure to the slave cylinder, which in turn moves the clutch release fork and the clutch release hub and bearing.
The clutch master cylinder uses brake fluid and shares a common reservoir with the brake master cylinder
The clutch is a single plate, dry-friction disc with a diaphragm-style spring clutch pressure plate. The clutch disc has a hub which is splined to the input shaft. The clutch disc has friction material where it contacts the flywheel and the clutch pressure plate. Torsion springs on the clutch disc help absorb the engine torque pulses. The clutch pressure plate applies pressure to the clutch disc, holding it tightly against the surface of the flywheel.
In the engaged position, the diaphragm spring holds the clutch pressure plate against the clutch disc, so that engine torque is transmitted to the input shaft. When the clutch pedal is depressed, the clutch release hub and bearing pushes the diaphragm spring center toward the flywheel. The diaphragm spring pivots at the fulcrum, relieving the load on the clutch pressure plate. Steel spring straps riveted to the clutch pressure plate cover pull the clutch pressure plate from the clutch disc, disengaging the engine torque from the transaxle and enabling the gears to be changed.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Inspection and Verification - MTX-75
The following checks should be carried out before repairing or replacing the transaxle:
Poor gear shifting
  1. Check the operation of the clutch: Lay a block of wood approx. 25 mm thick under the clutch pedal and depress the clutch pedal as far as the stop. If 1st or 2nd gear can be selected with no problem with the engine running and the parking brake applied, the clutch is OK. If the gear cannot be selected, repair the clutch.
  1. Check the selector mechanism:
    • The free play in the gearshift lever must be no more than 15 mm.
      • If the gearshift lever free play is too great, check the gearshift cables and replace them if necessary.
    • If the gearshift lever free play is OK, adjust the gearshift linkage. For additional information, refer to Section 308-06 .
  1. Check the transaxle fluid level and top up with Automatic Transmission Fluid ESD-M2C186-A if necessary.

How does clutch work


Your clutch is both complicated and simple ( confused? That's because there are many types and variations of clutches)
OK, I'll give you the simplest version.
When you step on the clutch pedal, it is either attached to mechanical linkage, a cable, or a master cylinder that works the same as the one for your brakes. Jeeps use a master cylinder.
The fluid pressure at the master cylinder pushes a slave cylinder on the bellhousing (just like the wheel cylinder on a drum brake...only difference is that a wheel cylinder has a piston on each end, a clutch slave has one piston) When you make the piston move, it pushes on a part called a clutch fork which is a simple lever...push on one end and the other end travels in the opposite direction. That lever is attached to a bearing (called a throwout bearing) that is positioned around the input shaft of the transmission, sliding back and forth on it. When the bearing is pushed against "fingers" on the clutch pressure plate assembly, it forces the actual plate to move back away from the clutch disc. The disc is normally held tightly sandwhiched between the plate and the flywheel by springs in the plate cover.
Further clamping force is sometimes applied by counter weights on the "fingers" that react to engine rpm. (depending upon clutch design)
So, when you step down on the pedal, you are moving the slave piston, the fork and the bearing which causes the clamping force on the disc to be relieved, allowing it to spin free and since it is connected to the input shaft of the transmission which is splined so the disc (also splined)can drive it. Bottom line is that when the disc is compressed between the flywheel and the pressure plate it turns the transmission gears, moving the car. When you push the clutch pedal down, it releases that pressure and no power goes into the transmission.
Jeep also uses an alternative design that eliminated the clutch fork but essentially everything else still works the same.

HOW TO KNOW WHEN SHALL I CHANGE CLUTCH DESK?


To reduce clutch disc/plate problems, avoid riding the clutch whilst driving, ie having ur foot on the clutch pedal when the engine is in operation, especially wqhen the vehicle is in motion. You see the clutch disc is sandwiched between the flywheel of the engine & the pressure plate. When the driver presses the clutch pedal, the sandwiching of the clutch plate is released, so therefore no drive is being transmitted from the engine to the road wheels. This gives an effect as if the vehicle is in neutral (engine can be revved, with no movement or propulsion of the vehicle). When the driver releases the clutch pedal, the clutch disc is now sandwiched tightly causing the drive to be transmitted to the road wheels which will now cause the vehicle to be propelled.

Clutch discs are only replaced when there are problemes with clutching in and changing gears. After constant pressing of the clutch, the asbestos material on the clutch disc after a period grinds down (clutch disc becomes thinner), which in turn will reduce friction characteristics when all the elements are sandwiched. This causes a slipping effect, preventing the drive from being transmitted to the road wheels efficiently. This causes other problems such as high fuel consumption, erratic engaging of gears, hard selecttion of gears, heavy vibration of the vehicle, stalling; just to name a few. In most cases an unusual smell of the clutch disc is observed.

Also just by resting ur foot on the clutch pedal while engine is running can be dmagaing too. You see the clutch release bearing rests on the pressure plate, so when the clutch pedal is pressed by the driver, there is a degree of friction being placed on the bearing because the pressure plate is always rotating with the engine. The clutch release bearing is stationery until the clutch pedal is pressed by the driver, which sends it into the moving pressure plate, so less pressing on the clutch pedal the less friction between the bearing and the pressure plate. Only operate/press/place foot on the clutch when necessary
