I am not a diesel mechanic, a tractor mechanic, or a shade tree mechanic. But, it sounds to me like it is time for a new clutch pack. Anyone with reasonable knowledge of simple mechanics can do this job at a much cheaper price than a professional diesel or tractor mechanic, but it can be a heavy duty job. I would weigh the differences in downtime of my equipment and the ability of my shade tree mechanic.

1998 subaru impreza how to replace the clutch and how long does it take


Hi:
This is tough to answer in short format, but basically, your axles and transmission need to be removed, and the pressure plate and clutch removed, and your flywheel needs inspected and resurfaced if needed.
An experienced mechanic, with tools and parts on hand can get a clutch swapped in a day. I am a shade tree mechanic and it takes me a couple of days, because I have to always run back to the parts store and get something!

jag-you-are would prefer that you take your car to one of their service centers!! probably has an internal filter element that needs special equip. to access and change out.lot of high end cars have that type of filter now. my brothers mercedes mid-1990s doesn't even have a tranny dip-stick! need special tools to check level! hard to be a 'shade-tree' mechanic anymore!
good luck!

Yes the assembly is available but you will need a clutch pulling and a clutch installing special tools. They might be rentable, if not I dont think they cost alot.Its not a bad job.
You might want to read up on the job.Dont forget the gap spec.

Try changing your fuel filter, like on all fuel injection and electronic ignition problems the shade tree has to use the process of elimination. This is one of the cheapest.
