Question about Acura Integra

1 Answer

The clutch keeps slipping, but it is fairly new. Someone said something about putting a clutch disc in and I'm wondering if that would solve it or if it needs a brand new clutch again.

If the clutch is fairly new,hopefully it hasn't been damaged.Under the dash is an adjustment for the clutch.You have to get in the car with your back on the floorboard looking up with a light.Locate the clutch pedal and follow it up to where it is mounted under the dash.Look forward to the firewall and you will see a gold colored rod coming back from the firewall,and attach to the clutch pedal.Where the rod is threaded,close to the clutch pedal,is a jam nut,and it will be either 12mm or 14 mm in size.Loosen the jam nut and back it off several threads.Now turn the gold rod inwards towards the rear of the car,and that should make the clutch engagement point lower on the clutch pedal travel,or closer to the floor,and should make the clutch stop slipping,unless,of course,it is damaged beyond adjustment,and needs to be replaced.This is the adjustment procedure for the clutch when a new one is installed,and once a year,after that.

Were you careful not to get your hands on the face of the clutch disc too much? Any indication of oil or grease around the disc, like from a leaking rear crank seal, when you changed the clutch?
Did you bleed the slave cylinder, to get all air out of the system?

If still no help, someone will have to troubleshoot it. A new clutch should not slip, especially with the flywheel polished to smooth.

CLUTCH SLIP


You cannot adjust it, if it's slipping while driving either there is oil on the clutch disc, the pressure plate isn't strong enough to overcome engine torque or something is incorrect in your clutch system

It might be the flywheel make sure there are no oil leaks and clutch isn't contaminated does the gearbox select gears ok when it starts to slip before you re-bleed it?

We have burnt the clutch out and are wondering how hard it is to put a new one in?


This requires you removing the cv shafts, taking loose the engine/transmission mounts, unbolt the transmission from the engine, removing the transmission, taking the pressure plate and clutch disc off the flywheel on the engine, then putting everything back once the new clutch parts are put back on. Looking a day of work to complete.

I just paid to have a whole new clutch system put in my Porsche Boxster to solve a bad vibration/chatter in the clutch during initial release of the clutch. The problem was not resolved. The mechanic...


I am wondering why they didn't find this when they had it apart the first time. That is a no brainer to check the fly wheel when it's apart. Unfortunetly this is a high dollar part, but now they are getting you for twice the labor. Honest and good mechanics are hard to find these days, If you have been with them awhile I would go to them and try to negotiate a better price. If not find someone else. Good luck

Clutch slipping when it get hot


Check the adjustment of the clutch push rod. It is the rod that connects the clutch pedal to the clutch master cylinder.
