Well you know a shop is going to love you, they make good money from clutch and tranny jobs. I would guess about $1500. Depends on where you live and where you take the car. I don't think they have a cable anymore, should be hydraulic, and if the throwout bearing is shot, you will replace everything while you are in there. No sense taking it apart and then doing it again in a couple months. It is a fairly easy job, the tranny comes out easier than most people think, Get the flywheel turned, new clutch, make sure it fits the spindle before starting, new pressure plate and throw out bearing. It will be like new. What is it doing anyway? Is it slipping?, Chattering? hard shift? Check it out.

Isuzu kb. We replaced the clutch an we bleed the system. It works for a while but then the fork gets stuck an looks like the cylinder pushed to the max. What causes that??

so if the the slave cyl. moves to max and the clutch does not disengage, then the throw out bearing is destroyed, ,first it burns up, seizes or collapse to a shell of nothingness.
the hyd. clutch is self adjusting, so there is no calibration like on cable or rod systems...
if its bled right the slave moves full distance.
so.... T/O bearing is GONE , end of the road.

My throw out bearins went bad can i just replace them

Throw out bearing? Do you mean the clutch release bearing, aka throw-out bearing? There is only one in a clutch system, and, yes, they can be replaced, without replacing the cluytch disc or the pressure plate. But if it is making noise, it is good practice to do the whole clutch replacement while the transmission is removed. If your budget won't allow that, at least check the clutch friction plates for wear.

Put in neautral and depress pedal while idleing if noise starts its throw out bearing in clutch if noise is there when clutch is out in neautral its probly front trans bearing either involves removeing transmission and replaceing clutch assy or front bearing

Makes noise when engine turned and clutch out. When clutch engages noise stops. Pressure Plate? Fly Wheel? whole clutch?....How expensive?

Sounds like a throw out bearing going bad. This can be replaced without having to replace the clutch and pressure plate, however I would never reccomend it. Normally when you have a malfunctioning clutch component, you replace them all. The best solution here is to replace the clutch, pressure plate, throw out bearing and pilot bearing. You can usually get this as a kit. While you have the transmission down and the clutch removed, make sure to take the flywheel to a machine shop and have it resurfaced. Good luck! Any other questions let me know

When I press in the clutch it makes a squeeling noise. Does it need clutch oil or replacement ?

it sounds like the throw-out bearing is bad, and that usually will require a new clutch.... or at least it is the best option(the whole clutch has to come out to replace the throw-out bearing on most clutches)

I need to adjust the clutch on a 1995 standard mighty max mitsubishi I changed the clutch disc, pilot bearing, throw-out bearing and pressure plate, but the clutch stays against the fly wheel when running...

You will need to turn the cable adjuster so there is only about 1/8 inch of free travel of the cable where it attaches to throw out fork before it starts to move the fork. Once the throw out bearing is achieving its full travel the clutch should release and enable gear selection.

Having release prblems with clutch on 2005 Elantra. new oe clutch, cut the flywheel and changed the slave cylinder. The pedal is too high not enough throw

Hello; The clutch is activated by a cable leading from the clutch pedle to the clutch housing between the engine and the trany. It is that cable that needs adjusting. If the pedle is too high to activate the clutch the cable needs to be adjusted to be shorter. That adjustment is at the clutch housing end not inside the car.

Hope that helps.
