TEst for slipping clutch is travel about 30 mph. press clutch, shift to 3rd, rev engine pretty high and release clutch, at the time of clutch release, floor throttle. If the engine continues to race, clutch not grabbing porperly, if the clutch works properly, the engine will be slowed and engauged.
You can always get a 2nd opinon from another shop.

the 85,000 mile coutch worn out issue dependes entirely on driving habits of the operators.

That is when clutch slip happens-when the clutch is released. If the clutch disc is worn badly, it won't hold tight against the engine flywheel-it will slip, causing that shudder you feel. Have a mechanic verify this, but it sounds like you need a new clutch.

The appears to be no clutch on my 2004 Audi A4 Quattro 1.8T. I had it to one mechanic who said that the starter is getting a signal and there is 12V at the starter but it will not start. The clutch feels...


there is a safety switch on the clutch system that means you have to put you foot on the clutch before it will start
from your description if it is hydraulic clutch , then there is a slave cylinder or clutch master cylinder problem or if cable clutch , a cable problem
either system can just fail

slipping clutches will not allow the car to go anywhere so that is not the problem
trouble engaging or changing gears indicates a clutch control problem

Why does my clutch suddenly feel like its slipping on my merc capri xr2 turbo, engaging way to late after release of clutch pedal...hydraulic? mechanical? does it need a simple cable adjustment or flu


If you hit the gas in gear does it slip ? if its hydrolic and low fluid it wouldnt release the clutch you didnt put the year but i would have to go with adjusted at the tranny easy if thats the case also maybe the clutch is gone and theres a chatching point soyou dont mess up the flywheel those are spendy even used it engages the tranny starts the car and most importantly ballances the engine there for removing some metal could throw the balance way off

When taking off from a stop feels like the transmisson is slipping.


That indicates that the clutch needs to be replaced. Check with your local mechanic and ask him for a clutch kit replacement.

My 1995 sentra shifts fine in all gears but when i accelerate in 4th or 5th gear it the rpms wind up and the car doednt real respond feels like its in the accelerater do i need a new clutch


Sounds like the clutch is slipping. If the clutch is bad, it will slip in high gears (4th & 5th) but seem to work fine in lower gears. Clutch probably needs replaced but have a mechanic check it out first because it's a fairly expensive job. If your clutch is actuated via a cable (not hydraulic), it may just need adjusting.

My 2000 VW Jetta TDI suddenly lost power on the interstate. It seemed that it took twice the RPMs to keep the same speed. Is this the turbo kicking off? At lower speeds it feels as if it does not change...


Most likely its your transmission slipping You will need to have it checked by a mechanic if the rpm is double then it has nothing to do with the turbo, if it's a automatic it means the clutches are slipping or if it's a standard it means the clutch is slipping from being worn out or the pressure plate is wore out.

Hi, I just bought a tired Subaru Leone (1990) Station Wagon. Everything feels OK for the age of the car... but it accelerates like a boat. The engine seems great and isn't miss-firing. The clutch bites...


I think you`ve answered your own question.
The clutch sounds as though its on its last legs.
I would take it down to a local car mechanic ask him for a verdict on the clutch and anything else that needs doing.Remember you don`t have to take his offer,we are in the day and age of haggling.
Once its up and running subarus are so reliable a good choice of car.

Transmission seems to slipping.... While driving on a level road at 120-km//hr my car suddenly **** or slippping.The engine rpm increases but the speed decreasses.I feel that the gear shifting at least...


Dear vdizon it seems your bearings are slipping inside your transmission.
This is usually caused by inproper use or stress to the transmission. Changing gears at high revs and double clutching may have caused the bearings to wear, or a service on the gearbox has not been performed by factory recomendation. I advise you to book your car into your mechanic to confirm the problem before the proble escalades.
I hope this has helped you.

Clutch slipping


A clutch is usually adjusted from underneath the car if it's a mechanical clutch.

Your comment that there is very little play at the top indicates an improperly adjusted clutch. You should have about 1/2 - 3/4 inch of play before feeling the clutch in the pedal.

'94 Ford Ranger XLT Manual Transmission Problem?


For the information given, and assuming forr a 94 it has a bunch of miles, I would bet on a slipping clutch along with a pressure plate that is glazed over. I doubt the transfer case, that's just a chain drive mechanism with nothing much to slip in there. In 2 wheel drive the transfer case drives pretty much straight through and shouldn't add to the problem.

If the clutch has over 80K on it, replace and resurface the pressure plate at the same time.

Does the clutch pedal have about 1/4" of play before it begins to engage? If not adjust the clutch play 1st and see if that helps.

Let me know if you have a further symptoms to share.
