I had the same problem with my1994 3-speed. I whent back and took both clutches apart and found a gasket that had not been seated properly and replaced it. workes fine. The lip of the gasket wouldn't go into the place it should. I assembled the disk put on ky jelly for lube and found a glass bowl that was about the same size. Putting the disk with with the gasket lip side down in the bowl so that the gasket was held very close. It was then in the same position as it should be when assembled. I then put the bowl in the freezer for an hour. when I took it out it stayed in the proper position. I just dropped it into the clutch assembly. Fit perfect no problem. Dan

    Dose the car go forward or reverse.What gears work if any. If it goes forward and reverse with a strong action, then maybe it is a problem in the valve body. If the gears were damaged then there maybe small pieces of metal any place. Some of them could be causing a shifting valve to be stuck, or a gasket could have been damaged. Dan

I have a 1999 Pontiac sunfire and when shifting it's like clutch slipping for a minute to catch up to speed. Clutch 1 year old. Could it be speed sensor? What could it be?

I see that the clutch is new however If the trani or the engine has a Seal leak, your clutch could have oil on it.
Any oil dripping at the Bellhousing?

Cant shift into gears

Is it an Automatic or Standard transmission? Your description of the problem is very confusing. An automatic does not have a throwout bearing. The clutches or disks on an automatic are not for the average Joe to mess with. Please let us know what you're working with.

Hi there i have a 528bmw and when i shift increase speed it makes a clittering sound it also does this while i drive and push the clutch in could this be that i need gearbox oil?

It will be the clutch release bearing, you will have to remove the gearbox & check the clutch release bearing & clutch cover for wear/damage

When i push clutch in it makes a grinding noise.Hard to shift into first.When i come to a stop it acts like it wants to stall

Sounds like the clutch release plate or release bearing are damage or disintegrated. Because one or both of these parts are damaged the clutch does not properly disengage which will result in crunching gear changes at slow speed and also clutch dragging at lights (wanting to stall) etc.

You'll need to split the transmission from the engine block to investigate.

I need instructions on replacing the clutch in a '94 Chevy Blazer 4x4, 350 engine. Specifically the pilot bearing, throwout bearing.

The pilot bearing is pressed into the flywheel and you need a pilot bearing/bushing puller. Some A/P stores will rent it to you for free (deposit). the throwout bearing is held onto the clutch fork normally by clips. Sometimes you have to take the "fork" out to get the bearing off.

Make sure to note how "deep' the pilot bearing/bushing is so that when you install the new one it is set at the right depth.

My wife's 2002 Suzuki Grand Vitara is starting to have problems shifting. Every time you depress the clutch pedal and try to put the vehicle in first gear from a stop position, the stick doesn't want to go...

Do the following:
-Check the clutch fluid,
-With the engine off make the trip from 1 to 5 gear,as if you were on the road
if it is okay
Let's go to the second step, With the engine running, do the same but keeping the pedal depressed , Does not engage any gear ?
-If the clutch fluid is OK , then The bearing of the output shaft is damaged or clutch release bearing

I bought a 1992 civic it had 2 different size tires in the front. There is a loud humming noise from the tranny it is a stick. Is this what caused it and how do i fix it?

Running 2 tire sizes on the front could/would damage the transmissions differential, depends on how long it was driven like that. It would require a trip to a tranny shop to fix it. But usually a loud humming noise comes from front wheel bearings going bad. On that car, the wheel bearing is pressed into the Hub, so if it is a bad bearing, it is still a trip to a shop for repair. Sorry I dont have any good news for you.

The first three speeds you get only operates on high #4 speed and it is a little bit noisy

Replaced clutch but now hard to shift into gear. will go but hard to shift. heard there was a safety on these that if brake lite not coming on will not go into gear properly.

If it's going into gear hard it's most likely because the clutch is not disengaging enough. Do you have a lot of free play? Does the clutch start to grab with the pedal real close to the floor? If so, check the the nylon bushing under the dash where the pushrod for the clutch master cylinder attaches to the arm. Is the pedal real spongy, is there air in the hydraulic system? Another posibility is that you damaged the pilot bearing causing it to drag and it keeps trying to turn the trany. If you get the rolling a little then try to put it into gear, will it go in easier? If so the clutch is dragging. There is nothing with the brake lights that will cause it to shift hard. With an automatic trany the brake lights will unlock the torque converter. Also with a 4X4 and automatic trany and electric shift on the transfer case, the transfer will not shift unless the trany is in "N" and your foot is on the brake. There is nothing on a manual set up that anything to do with brake lights and shifting.
