The clutch is the part that can connect or disconnect the engine from the transmission at any time when depressed through friction plates. It allows you to easily shift between gears and allows you to start or stop the car motion without having to start and stop the engine.

Looks like an automatic tansmission that won't shift out of first gear... You need to pull the OBDII transmission codes to find out why. If it's engine rpm realted, again the engine codes will tell you where to look. You can buy a cheap OBDII code reader or get a read-out at your local garage for just a few bucks.

How to replace the clutch on front wheel drive cars


It is best to replace the clutch driven plate, pressure plate and release bearing at the same time.
You have to remove either the transmission or the engine(or both). On some vehicles it is not possible to remove the engine without the transmission. I prefer removing the transmission only, since it does not require a hoist. (Removing engine and transmission complete is a bit more complicated,theres much more things to disconnect, but makes things easier when mating the transmission to the engine after replacing the clutch assembly). When removing the transmission only make sure the engine is properly supported, since the engine is supported by the transmission and vise versa.
Take note of all pipes and cables that you remove and mark them with masking tape since that gives you something to write a description on. Remember to mark the spot that you disconnect from as well. Taking close-up pictures of the engine bay will work wonders when your memory fails.
Read through this : http://www.fixya.com/cars/t4984410-remove_front_axle_get_engine (solution 2)
Drain transmission oil. Remove the driveshafts as described. Remove any electrical connections to the gearbox.
Remove the gearshift linkage. Remove the clutch cable/clutch operating mechanism(hydraulic clutch) Remember to support the engine before unbolting the transmission from the engine. Remove any mountings still connecting the transmission to the body of the car..
Remove the transmission from the engine bay. It is possible to do this by hand (a helper would be a plus at this point)
The clutch pressure plate is then visible on the engine and held in place by 6 bolts. It can be removed along with the clutch plate(which will drop free once the pressure plate is removed. Replacing the clutch is pretty straightforward, except that the clutch plate needs to be centered, or the transmission wont go back on. Autozone stocks a clutch centering tool which you can purchase although some clutch kits come with the centering tool supplied, else you can fashion one out of a wooden dowel. The dowel needs to fit snugly into the recess in the centre of the flywheel. Use insulation tape to build it up if it is too thin. The clutch plate can go in one way only. You will note that the clutch plate centre has a metal plate fitted on one side. This is the transmission side of the plate. Fit the clutch plate and pressure plate to the flywheel and tighten the bolts just enough to hold the clutch plate in place so that it doesnt move around. Using your centering tool make sure the clutch plate is nicely centered. Then tighten the bolts to the specified torque. Which means tighten them up without breaking them. Get the transmission fitted to the engine. This may take some doing especially if the clutch centering didnt go too well. Now reconnect everything and drive the vehicle to the nearest alignment centre to re-set the wheel alignment.

Transmission sluggish, never used to be


the two events are most likely not realted.

Your description lacks the details of whether the engine is reving up, or not.

Transmission may not be generating pressure during the condition that you describe... Have to hook up pressure gauge to know what is happening.

if you are not making trans fluid pressure, you are certainly damaging by continuing to drive the unit.

Have you replaced the filter at the correct intervals?
