Question about 2004 Volkswagen Passat

1 Answer

My car feels like the clutch/transmission slips for a second. At first it was very subtle..almost wasn't sure if anything was wrong. It has gotten progressively worse. It happens most under high torque conditions. Have 115000 miles on it. Had the clutch replaced. It was actually on good shape after looking at it. The problem did not go away. The slipping occurs after the clutch has engaged, not whole shifting. Any ideas?

Aside from a bad plate, there are a couple things that will make a clutch slip. The primary one is overheated springs. When you replaced the clutch, was it just the disk or the whole disk/pressure plate assembly?
The second common reason is a clutch that is adjusted too tight. If the clutch is engaging near the beginning of the pedal stroke, it will get tighter at speed and start to slip. These days it's less of a problem as most clutches are hydraulic. Does either of these make sense for your car? If not, I'm stumped.

1; low level or too high ATF.
2: filter packed. do the service now.
3: low pump pressure.

How do I change hydraulic clutch on chevy s10 1996?


If it's the clutch slipping,has nothing to do with the master or slave cylinders,you need to replace the disc and pressure plate.Meaning the transmission has to come out.Just jumping out of second gear means it wasn't all the way into second.You bette rod some more testing,like hold the brake when you let the clutch out.If the car don't move,replace the clutch disc and pressure plate.If the engine stalls whenyou let the clutch out,theres nothing wrong with your clutch,but rev the engine a bit when you do this.

Sound's like your transmission is starting to slip... Without looking probably would say you're gonna need a new clutch......

My1989 fordf150 runs but it wont go into gear


If your F150 is standard shift, don't try to put first gear with the motor running, you might brake some gears in the transmission. Probably you have a worn out clutch disk. To diagnose this you could try to put your truck in first gear with your motor off, push the clutch and start it, CAUTION, if the cluthc is not working your truck will go foward. Don't be afraid, try doing this on an open space or road with little traffic. Then you you feel you got to change to second gear, get your foot off the gas and inmediatelly shift to second gear having in mind not to force the stick if it sound, feel the stick until it goes easily to second gear. If you accelerate and the truck does not slips and has power accelerating, the disk is working fine, but if you feel it slipping and your revolutions go up but the truck stays more or less in the same place, you have a default clutch disk.

No if yoou feel no pressure on the pedal, this is the pressure plate has no strength, this is a default pressure plate. If you feel the clutch strong but when you push it it sounds like a broken bearing, this is the pressure plate bearing that is bad.

Ok, to change this you must lower your transmission, then take the clutch assembly from the motor. It is good to have a center shaft to re-install the clutch. After you remove the transmission, you take out the clutch case. Here it is recommended to check the rear clutch seal to avoid future ooil leaks. Then remove the pressure plate with the bearing and the disk is inside next to the flywheel.
By what you told us, your truck must be a standard shift. Because if this happens in an automatic transmission, probably the planetariums are damaged inside the transmission.

If there aren't any remaining elecrtronic control related service codes then you may have an internal clutch pack problem which is causing the transmission to slip fully when it tries to go into any gear after second. Not to uncommon to see these symptoms when that happens but a good transmission shop should be able to diagnose what is wrong quite easily so you would know for sure. If the problem is internal then the transmission would need to be removed and repaired or replaced.

I have the same car, the only solution to this problem is to tighten the clutch cable nut just as necessary until you feel that you are able to shift smoothly without forcing it, make sure you start the car to test for that.

You might have to remove the air intake in order to access the clutch cable.

If you tighten the nut too much, your clutch will feel light and you will have clutch slips. So basically keep trying until you're there. You can loosen or tighten the nut while the car is running, I'd recommend.

Second clutch slipping after only 60,000 mi. first got 121,000


SLACKEN the clutch cable. I had the same problem with my wife`s Legacy - as the clutch plate wears, the cable tightened up. It started to slip. When I asked the Subaru dealer to adjust it they TIGHTENED it even more, and said the clutch was slipping because worn out, and needed replacing. It took three minutes to slacken it off myself and the car has now done another 20,000 miles with no clutch problems. No wonder Subarus are now so rare in rural areas! The adjustment is right at the back of the engine in the middle under the firewall. You may need top adjust the "HillHolder" cable as well. DON`T PANIC! It`s easy AS
