If it is not working you will definitely hear it. Unless you are trying to see the space between the plate and the bearing then you just pull the trans dust cover off of it or you remove the flywheel plate.

What causes my 1995 chevy pick up 5 speed manual transmission to not want to shift into gears after it gets warm or hot but first thing it does fine


Many internal parts could be the problem. I would replace the vacuum modulator on the passenger side of the transmission first. Near the back. Only thing with a vacuum hose to it.

The torque converter has clutch plates in it that wear down so you loose the over drive function with high miles. The transmission can also not be sending the pressure to apply the clutch in the torque converter.

My Honda Civic 2001 just stalled and turned off when I was at a stoplight. The battery light came on. I was able to turn it back on and take it home, what should I do now?


The transmission oil gets water contaminated if the water or coolant gets trapped into the transmission through the breather tube located on the top of transmission casing, through the worn out dipstick seal or through the cracked lower tank of radiator.
The following solution is suggested to solve the issue:
- Retrieve the engine and transmission error codes with
diagnostic computer or HDS and interpret the freeze frame data.
- Check the battery health and the alternator performance.
- Check for loose or contaminated connections at alternator, battery terminals and transmission connector.
- Check to see if the coolant level decreases.
- Get the radiator be checked for damaged lower tank in which the transmission oil circulates.
- Delete the fault codes by removing the negative battery terminal.
- Clean the transmission oil filter and replace the transmission oil. If the problem persists, address the following:
PROBABLE CAUSES:
1.Intermediate housing assembly worn or damaged
2. Reverse brake defective
3. Reverse brake piston stuck, worn or damaged
4. Start clutch defective
5. Start clutch end plate clearance incorrect
6. ATF strainer or ATF filter clogged
7. Control valve body assembly defective
8. Manual valve body defective
9. PCM defective
10. Start clutch control system memory in PCM defective
11. Engine output low
ACTIONS:
  • Check the reverse brake pressure.
  • Inspect the clutch piston, clutch piston check valve, and O-rings. Check the spring retainer for wear and damage. Inspect the clutch end-plate-to-top-disc clearance. If the clearance is out of tolerance, inspect the clutch discs and plates for wear and damage. If the discs and plates are worn or damaged, replace them as a set. If they are OK, adjust the clearance with the clutch end plate.
  • Check the D indicator, and check for loose solenoid connectors and transmission range switch connector.
  • Calibrate start clutch control system.
If any problem is found within the transmission assembly, better to replace it with a good known one, even purchased from a junk for less.
Hope that works. Thank for visiting Fixya.

1998 ford contour 2.5 ltr manual,stuck in second and have to hold the clutch in to move it.how do i solve this issue?


SECTION 308-00: Manual Transmission/Transaxle and Clutch - General Information 1998 Contour/Mystique Workshop Manual DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION Manual Transaxle and Clutch Manual Transaxle and Clutch - General Information This section covers general procedures for diagnosis and testing the clutch system. For additional information, refer to Section 308-01 . For specified clutch system service procedures. For additional information, refer to Section 308-02 . For a complete description of the manual transaxle. For additional information, refer to Section 308-03 .
The clutch system includes:
  • Flywheel.
  • Clutch disc.
  • Clutch pressure plate.
  • Clutch master cylinder.
  • Clutch slave cylinder.
  • Clutch release fork.
  • Clutch release hub and bearing.
The clutch master cylinder transmits fluid pressure to the slave cylinder, which in turn moves the clutch release fork and the clutch release hub and bearing.
The clutch master cylinder uses brake fluid and shares a common reservoir with the brake master cylinder
The clutch is a single plate, dry-friction disc with a diaphragm-style spring clutch pressure plate. The clutch disc has a hub which is splined to the input shaft. The clutch disc has friction material where it contacts the flywheel and the clutch pressure plate. Torsion springs on the clutch disc help absorb the engine torque pulses. The clutch pressure plate applies pressure to the clutch disc, holding it tightly against the surface of the flywheel.
In the engaged position, the diaphragm spring holds the clutch pressure plate against the clutch disc, so that engine torque is transmitted to the input shaft. When the clutch pedal is depressed, the clutch release hub and bearing pushes the diaphragm spring center toward the flywheel. The diaphragm spring pivots at the fulcrum, relieving the load on the clutch pressure plate. Steel spring straps riveted to the clutch pressure plate cover pull the clutch pressure plate from the clutch disc, disengaging the engine torque from the transaxle and enabling the gears to be changed.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Inspection and Verification - MTX-75
The following checks should be carried out before repairing or replacing the transaxle:
Poor gear shifting
  1. Check the operation of the clutch: Lay a block of wood approx. 25 mm thick under the clutch pedal and depress the clutch pedal as far as the stop. If 1st or 2nd gear can be selected with no problem with the engine running and the parking brake applied, the clutch is OK. If the gear cannot be selected, repair the clutch.
  1. Check the selector mechanism:
    • The free play in the gearshift lever must be no more than 15 mm.
      • If the gearshift lever free play is too great, check the gearshift cables and replace them if necessary.
    • If the gearshift lever free play is OK, adjust the gearshift linkage. For additional information, refer to Section 308-06 .
  1. Check the transaxle fluid level and top up with Automatic Transmission Fluid ESD-M2C186-A if necessary.

How to repair cluch disc suzuki mini truck


The clutch is a friction disk up against the flywheel and pressed against it by the clutch pressure place. So you have to remove the transmission in order to gain access.
For that you:
disconnect battery
drop drive shaft
remove speedometer cable or wire, shift and clutch linkage
support engine and transmission separately.
remove rear support
remove engine to transmission bolts, cover plate, and starter
slide transmission back until input shaft clears clutch pressure plate ring
lower transmission.
remove pressure plate evenly and slowly

Then you inspect for wear on the pilot bushing the input shaft rests on, the friction disc is assumed to be too thin, the pressure plate should not show heat damage or scratching, and the throw out bearing should not be noisy.

Installation is reverse except you use a fake plastic input shaft in order to firmly locate the friction disk in the right place, when bolting pressure plate on. Remember to tighten evenly, diagonally, and not to break off any bolts by over tightening. Remove fake plastic input shaft before continuing then.

Mazda mpv 2000 no work reverse


Transmissions have a series of clutch plates, friction plates,bands,gears and solenoids located inside the transmission. As the vehicle moves forward, these plates operate similar to a clutch on a manual transmission, but using fluid pressure and momentum to do so. Usually these go bad due to lack of proper service intervals. If the fluid is not changed at recommended intervals, it breaks down, similar to engine oil,and causes the transmission to get hot and burn up these clutch plates and bands. Therefore you will get certain gears that will fail to engage. In your case, the reverse.

1999 ford explorer no reverse but have all foward gears


Unfortunately it sounds like you have some internal transmission damage. When reverse wont function in your vehicle, it is fairly common that the reverse clutch plate in the transmission ha sworn the teeth off the gear. Once you have the transmission fixed, make sure you come to a complete stop when backing up before going forward. That is usually the action that will cause the theeth to wear off the clutch plate
