Question about Mazda Tribute

1 Answer

We have an '01 Mazda Tribute, 132,00 mi., 4cyl. manual, 2wd. we recently replaced the clutch, pressure plate, throwout bearing, pilot bearing and the slave cyl. because the clutch was slipping after the engine warmed up. Now a week after the repairs the clutch has started slipping again. I am stumped. I can't figure out why the new assy is slipping. There were no leaks that effected the clutch we removed. It was actually in fair shape. we resurfaced the flywheel. Any help would be appreciated.

When it starts to slip again open up the bleeder screw on the clutch slave cylinder. If the slipping stops then the problem is with the clutch master cylinder. The fluid is not able to return to the reservoir as it expands with heat and is keeping pressure on the clutch. Replacement of the master cylinder would be the best option but first clean out the master cylinder and ensure that the fluid supply hole between the reservoir and cylinder is clear. Renew the piston and rubbers. Check for scoring in the cylinder bore and replace the whole cylinder if scoring is found. If a good cleaning of the master cylinder does not cure the problem a quick-fix on a shoestring budget repair is to fit spacer washers between the firewall and master cylinder or filing down the actuating rod to shorten its length by about 1mm although this is not recommended.
The only other problem I can imagine is that the clutch lever in the transmission is sticking on the guide, although this is highly unlikely.

  1. Remove the transmission or transaxle as outlined.
  2. Insert a pilot shaft or an old input shaft into the center of the clutch disc, pressure plate, and the pilot bearing in the crankshaft.
  3. With the pilot tool supporting the clutch disc, loosen the pressure plate bolts gradually and in a crisscross pattern.
  4. Remove the pressure plate and clutch disc.
  5. Clean the transmission and clutch housing. Clean the flywheel surface with a non-oil based solvent. Wash your hands before installing or handling the clutch assembly parts. Hold the clutch disc by the center hub only.

Before assembly, slide the clutch disc up and down on the transmission input shaft to check for any binding. Remove any rough spots with crocus cloth and then lightly coat the shaft with Lubriplate.
  1. To remove the throwout bearing assembly: Remove the return clip and take out the throwout bearing carrier and the bearing.
  2. To replace the throwout arm use a / 16 in. punch, knock out the throwout shaft spring pin and remove the shaft, springs, and the center lever.
  3. Do not immerse the throwout bearing in solvent; it is permanently lubricated. Blow and wipe it clean. Check the bearing for wear, deterioration, or burning. Replace the bearing if there is any question about its condition.
  4. Check the shafts, lever, and springs for wear and defects. Replace them if necessary.
  5. If you hadn't planned on replacing the clutch disc, examine it for the following before reusing it. Loose rivets. Burned facing. Oil or grease on the facing. Less than 0.3mm left between the rivet head and the top of the facing.
  6. Check the pressure plate and replace it if any of the following conditions exist: Scored or excessively worn. Bent or distorted diaphragm spring. Loose rivets.
  7. Insert the control lever into the clutch housing. Install the two return springs and the throwout shaft.
  8. Lock the shift lever to the shaft with the spring pin.
  9. Fill the shaft oil seal with multipurpose grease.
  10. Install the throwout bearing carrier and the bearing. Install the return clip.
  11. Grease the carrier groove and inner surface.
  12. Lightly grease the clutch disc splines.

The clutch is installed with the larger boss facing the transmission.
  1. Support the clutch disc and pressure plate with the pilot tool.
  2. Turn the pressure plate so that its balance mark aligns with the notch in the flywheel.
  3. Install the pressure plate-to-flywheel bolts head-tight. Using a torque wrench and, working in a crisscross pattern, tighten the bolts to 11-15 ft. lbs.
  4. Install the transmission or transaxle as outlined.
  5. Adjust the clutch as described in the following information.

Replace clutch plate on 1992 mazda rx7


You will have to drop the transmission. Inspect the pressure plate for excessive wear and stretched springs when you remove it. Replace your throwout bearing at the same time, they are usually worn out by the time you need a clutch.

On2nd clutch 08 wrangler 1st one replaced @ 9000 mi.s throw out bearing makes noise again


I hope when the first clutch was replaced the throw out bearing was replaced. It sounds like you are either riding the clutch (foot resting on clutch pedal and partially depressing the clutch during normal driving) or the adjustment is incorrect. The throwout bearing should not contact the pressure plate unless the clutch pedal is depressed when adjusted correctly. The constant contact is what wears the bearing out prematurely.

Cant put my 98 Hombre in gear.


There are 4 parts to this system. First is the clutch master cylinder, second is the slave cylinder, third is the clutch throwout bearing, and last is the clutch pressure plate. These are all the parts that can be the issue. The master cylinder is the part that pumps the fluid to the slave cylinder, which pushes on the linkage to the throwout bearing, which pushes on the fingers on the clutch pressure plate, releasing the clutch. If you drained the fluid out, first you need to make sure that all the AIR is out of the system. It's just like brakes, it will not pump if it has air in it. The hydraulic portion of the system rarely gives problems, so here's a question. How old is the clutch in your truck? If it's over 100,000 mi, then you should start suspecting the throwout bearing. Did the truck make any groaning noises when you pressed the clutch recently, and then perhaps it stopped on its own? These are signs of throwout bearings going out. Here's the bit of troubleshooting that you need. go under your truck, and find where the slave cylinder attaches and pushes on the linkage that goes into the bell housing on the transmission. Feel this linkage; it should have very limited to no movement. if it moves significantly, then your throwout bearing went out, and you will need to replace your clutch and throwout bearing. If not, then it's the hydraulic portion of the brakes, and you'll have to troubleshoot between air in the system, master cylinder failure, or slave cylinder failure.

How do you replace a clutch bearing pressure plate? On a 1992 mazda navajo


You need to remove the transmission (and transfer case if its 4 wheel or all wheel drive) to access the clutch assembly. Be prepared to replace the clutch disk, pressure plate, thrust bearing, throwout bearing, and in your case since its a Ford/Mazda the slave cylinder and plastic line to the master cylinder. A very big job for the do-it-yourself-er.
