If you release the clutch pedal and it revs up before it goes and while driving the rpm gauge goes up and down is that the clutch slipping


If you are getting that amount of slippage, it is unlikely that a simple clutch adjustment will cure it. Your clutch pedal should have roughly 1" of free play from the top of the clutch pedal, and absolutely no more than 2" free play.
If you have zero free play, it "may" be possible to eliminate the slippage by adjusting the clutch, but you would have to be very lucky to get off that easy.

The slippage means that your clutch disc is most likely worn too thin and possibly glazed, as well as glazing of the flywheel and pressure plate friction surfaces. When the pedal is released, the clutch engages by sandwiching the clutch disc between the flywheel on one side and the clutch pressure plate on the other side. Strong springs in the pressure plate keep the clutch disc tightly sandwiched between the flywheel & pressure plate. Pushing on the clutch pedal releases this tension/pressure.

It's never "just a flywheel". That mechanic is bogus. All 3 parts are affected by worn or slipping clutch. Usually you don't need a new flywheel, as resurfacing it is usually fine & the normal procedure.
But you will need to replace the clutch disc and pressure plate anytime the flywheel is resurfaced.

Resurfacing a flywheel is similar to resurfacing brake rotors on a brake pad replacement (brake job).
Naturally the transmission has to be removed to get access to the clutch components, which is really the biggest part of the job.

Here's a pic of the basic clutch components:

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.

92'isuzu pick-up, 2.3L.manual tran. the truck starts and it goes into all gears, but it hardly moves.I adjusted the clutch cable and it got better I always had to adjust the cable. now it bearly move on...


Yes it is time to install a new clutch kit(clutch disc,pressure plate ,throw out bearing and pilot bearing)also have the flywheel resurfaced.The disc has gotten too thin to be clamped by the pressure plate.Best if you replace everything at once with new parts,avoid rebuilt parts.Good luck!

How do I jump start the battery on 2001 aurora


You know it is under the rear seat, passenger side, right? You can, however, remove the power center cover (under the hood, passenger side) and put the positive clamp on the large nut with the large cable at the top of the box-negative clamp then goes onto a metal part of the engine block, or a bolt on the shock tower.

I have a 99 grand voyager and the drivers side front brake is squeling. I'm not sure how to do brakes, but was told I have disc brakes in the front and drum brakes on the rear. Should I replace the pads...


These brakes are a pretty easy fix. For the job pick up some cheap gloves, you'll need general hand tools, proper Brake Fluid (DOT 3?)some brake cleaner, a large C-clamp, new pads (front) and I'd replace the front rotors too. Place the van on jack stands, remove front tires, using some brake cleaner spray down the calipers, pay special attention to the boot around the piston to clean well (if heavy dirt is left on it, it can make for sticky caliper(s).) Place the C-Clamp ove the calliper to compressit (DO NOT TIGHTEN ON YET!) Loosen the bleeder screw on the back of the caliper and place a small tube on it, now slowly tighten on the C-clamp, this will cause the piston to gently push back in to the caliper, you'll note old fluid coming from the bleed screw. Once fully driven back (don't over tighten!) remove the C-clamp and caliper and clean up with spray. Remove and replace the rotor, install new pads (lubricate as needed) and reinstall the caliper. Repeat to other side; once done bleed brake system and replace with new brake fluid. Be carefull with brake fluid and with brake cleaner, nasty stuff!

In general this is how it goes.

I hope this may have helped!

Best regards,
Tom

I need to change my front brake disc on the passenger side. What tools and parts are going to needed?


The 1st thing you must know is you had best replace both sides for even braking and wear. New rotors will likley be needed. Brake pads and Calipers for both sides,A small tube of grease, might com with pads
The grease is used where pads contact the Backing plate. Use it sparingly.1 Small can of brake fluid to
top off master cylinder after you have bled the air out
of system. You will realize what tools are needed as
you proceed, 2 large C-Clamps will likley be needed.
Wrenches of various sizes.Side cutters to remove cotter keys & replace them. 1 or 2 Good floor jacks.
Use jack stands for saftey.It will cost a little more
this way but it will last a lot longer done right.

My calipers wouldnt compress so i took them off now they wont go back on..help


BRAKES are one of the things you dont play with as your life and other peoples depend on them being done correctly, but concidering that you have got them off and carnt get them back on-------- take off the top of brake tank then take out the pads (1 side at a time)now compress the piston with a G clamp back as far as it goes ,then refit pads and refit
caliper and tighten up tight and then pump pedal 3 times and now turn the disc it should be a bit tight to start with.
THE other side take out 1 pad and retract the piston back to the stop ,put in new pad and then the other one .do the same pump the pedal and recheck the rotor for turning refit brake tank lid.
Road test burn them in a bit before rechecking disc for free spinning

How to replace water pump on 1995 dodge dakato 5.2 liter V8


When I do those I find it's easier to get some of the stuff out of the way. Fan shroud, Alternator, AC compressor(don't remove AC hoses just swing it over to the side) and the AC/alternator mount bracket. If you don't have the special hose clamp plyers they are worth buying. (those clamps are difficult with regular plyers) The fan clutch has a special wrench which is thinner. When you start the job break loose the fan clutch before you remove the belt. It keeps tension on the pulley. The nut is normal threading and usually comes loose with a sharp rap of the hammer on the fan clutch wrench.
Here is an illustration of the water pump bolts. I hope this helps you out. let me know how it goes.6f7219e.gif

Brakes


us a large " C " clamp and place one end on the back side of the caliper and the other end on the piston side ( place the old brake pad over the hollow part of the piston hole ) nd slowly tighten the " C " clamp. you will need to do this slowly as I say or the brake fluid will squirt out of the top of the master cylinder.
Good luck and I hope that this helps you.
