Clutch 1995 Saturn SL15 speed, 150,000 miles

WE BELIEVE THE CLUTCH IS GOING OUT ON MR CAR, AS LONG AS IT IS COOL AND I DO NOT GO VERY FAR ALL IS MORE OR LESS OK, BUT WHEN DRIVING FOR A LITTLE WHILE MY CAR DOES NOT SHIFT VERY WELL, I CAN SHIFT EVERYTHING JUST FINE BY THE CAR DOES NOT PROPERLY SHIFT ITSELF INTO GEAR AS IT SHOULD. THERE IS PLENTY OF TRANSMISSION FLUID AND IT DOES NOT SMELL BURNT SO WE HAVE COME TO BELIEVE IT IS THE CLUTCH. IS THIS SO AND IS IT AN FAIRLY EASY AT HOME FIX OT BEST LEFT OT A MECHANIC?

The service manual calls for removing the motor and trans as one unit before seperating. To get ust the trans out you have to pull axle shafts and take front end parts off. It's not an easy job and does require a few special tools to do it. If your not used to doing fairly heavy repairs at home you should have someone else do it or plan to really take your time and have to buy a few extra things along the way.

Hi Mr. Rauscher.
As I understand if correct,and your vehicle is Manual Gearbox,most probably you might have slipping Clutch,if it is Automatic Gearbox again you might having slipping hydraulic clutches. Ask for a test drive from your mechanic

1995 Saturn SL1 Manual Transmission


Sounds like the friction surface of the clutch disc is slipping. You would have to install a new clutch (clutch disc, pressure plate, and clutch release bearing), and have the flywheel surface cut and polished back to perfect smooth by a shop.
Manual transmission gears don't slip like automatics. And lack of fluid in the transaxle or the hydraulic clutch system won't cause this either.

The clutch is going bad. Over time the springs on the pressure plate loses their tension, allowing the clutch disc to slip.

I have a 1995 Isuzu Rodeo 2WD, 5 SP 240K miles, with original factory clutch still. My question is; Why during the winter months my Clutch Pedal loses tension and it goes (sank) all the way to the floor...


With that much play on the clutch you will need to replace the clutch and in the mean time you can float the gears by matching your rpms and your speed you may scratch a little but you can get it to the shop however its nor recommended to float gears because you can damage the gears if you do it too much.

Clutch issue? 89 toyota PU 4x4 V6 150,000 miles


Yep, you got it. Assuming spring tension on pressure plate feels normal (you should know with 150k mi) then the clutch disk is worn. Time for replacement.

Is your driving primarily city?
You may want to check to see if the clutch master cylinder reservoir is full. If it is not full you may have a leak or the clutch friction disk is worn. If the fluid is at the correct level, you might consider having the fluid flushed and refilled.

Sounds to me like there is an alignment issue witht he clutch disk. DId they buy a clutch kit with install tool? If not then good chance its not aligned and will need to come back out to align. you can also pick up a universal clutch alignment tool from autoparts store.
