Oil on clutch plate or disc is at wear limit, either way you need a new clutch. Check free play adjustment of cluth pedal, too tight will increase slippage

Is it normal to hear a sound going down hills around steep corners when you press on the brakes. I believe it is the stabilizing abs system which makes the sound. It is only heard when going down hills...


Hello and welcome to FixYa!
Yes it can be but I do suspect that you have worn out suspension bushings too. Try to check the brake pads as well for it may need replacement. But stabilizing abs and suspension must be the first to check.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Clutch started to slip on steep hill any way to adjust ?


I guess its time for a new clutch plate, best would be to fit in the pro-kit (clutch pressure plate, clutch plate and release bearing).

Are you driving an automatic? It sounds like the clutch plates inside your transmission may be slipping. Yes, automatics have small clutch plates between each gear whereas a standard has one big clutch plate

I drive a manual transmission 2000 Outback. I was stopped on a steep hill, and when I started trying to go, my RPMs went up to 5000 and I couldn't go anywhere, so I stopped trying and saw some light grey...


From your description, it does sound like the clutch has again failed.
You can still safely drive the car, provided you avoid heavy acceleration and don't negotiate steep inclines.
However, the clutch slip will only get worse, so get it fixed ASAP.
If the new clutch has failed after only 12 months service, perhaps your clutch pressure plate should also be replaced.
Note that operator poor clutch technique (excessive slippage during starts) will also cause early clutch failure.

There is a loud grinding noise when the clutch is pushed in.


Sounds like a clutch release bearing locked up, or pressure plate damage. In any case its obvious that the prinny has to come out and look inside to ascertain extent of damage. This major project requires the expertise and experience of a mechanic.
