I just bought a 2005 maserati quattro with 18000 miles, how often do i need to change the hydraulic clutch?

You should get 45-50k out of it, depending on how hard you drive it. (The fluid needs changing every 3 years)

flywheel can last whole life of the truck if you are a good driver and i have seen clutchs go as long as 200 hundred thousand depends on the driver and the roads you drive uphills etc.personally i would wait until signs of slipping surfaced .

92 mazda miata new clutch new clutch master cylinder systems been bled several times clutch will work 4 awhile park car then try again and clutch quits working again, while driving clutch works fine 4...

Sounds like the seal in the new clutch master cylinder. I've seen that same problem in the hand brake system in small 2 and 4 seat airplanes. ( I'm and aircraft mechanic) The problem is not air in the lines so bleeding won't help. The piston seal is intermittantly failing to seal. That is whty the function can return without any apparent reason as the seal has seated itself. The only cure is to replace or rebuild the master cylinder. ( Yes, even new or rebuilt ones can have a defective or improperly installed piston seal)

Hope this helps

Transmition seems to be sliping

if it is slipping then a new transmission is in order to fix it, the forward clutch plates are worn out or u have low hydraulic pressure in the transmission due to internal fluid leaks or more likely both, this is common on cars with over 100,000 miles on them.

Had a new clutch 7 months ago only done 3 and a half thousand miles since not towing are anything but the clutch has gone. the car is a 1994 model

back in 89 i had a lady that swore she never rested her foot on the pedal,but when we dismantled the clutch, it had burnt out and cracked the fly wheel.when you dismantle the clutch,you will be able to tell if its worn out or abused..a clutch can last 5/7 seconds or 100k plus dependant on driver(s)As a clutch cannot wear out on its own,there is no adjustment ,hopefully you fitted a genuine toyota clutch and not one "made in taiwan"sorry but there is no answer to your question

I have 219+ miles on a 99 lesabre how long will the car hold up if it was well maintained

theoretically, if the oil is changed every 3000 miles and the rest of the maintenance is done on schedule, the motor will last for many thousands more miles. Unfortunately, everything else on the car must be maintained as well as parts are always going to need replacing.

I have an 2004 audi a4 63500 miles when does timing belt need changing or how can I tell if it was done recently

The timing belt interval used to be 120k, but after numerous timing belt breaks and a class action lawsuit against VAG, Adui has changed the interval to 80k..However, i have seen them break even at 70k miles. Unless you see paperwork that it has been done, just plan on replacement before 70k. Better safe than sorry, if it breaks it costs thousands!
