Question about 2001 Subaru Forester

1 Answer

My car is only at about 55,000 miles, and the clutch is already starting to slip. That is, at any given gear, when I'm cruising, all of a sudden the revs will go very high (as if I'm in neutral). Is there a known problem about this? I'm getting quoted anywhere from $900 to $1500 for a new clutch. That's very expensive.

The clutch slips in first gear when it is hot.


You need a new clutch again. Sorry to give ya the bad news. This time make sure they put a new transmission seal in so fluid can not leak onto the clutch plate and ruin it.

A note to the first answer, if the clutch chatters in first gear that is indicative of a bad pressure plate or broke clutch springs, if it is not removed and repaired soon the clutch will shatter and damage the flywheel and possibly the input shaft and the the pilot bearing which could damage the transmission. There is also a possibility of the spring coming out of the clutch plate and wedging between the flywheel and pressure or clutch plate and causing severe damage to the internal parts just mentioned.

Transmission Slippage


You can have the clutch and the pressure plate checked. If it is an automatic tranny you may try to drain the fluid and have it replaced or have the solenoid cleaned out or checked. The solenoid controls the hydraulic pressure to the clutch

97 buick lasabre trans slips in overdrive


Either the cruise control is going out or the torque converter clutch circuit is going out on the trannys overdrive. Do you have check engine light codes? If so you will need to have a computer hooked up to read them. Darrel coleman also has a problem with his car like this and I have suggested the same thing to him

'94 Ford Ranger XLT Manual Transmission Problem?


For the information given, and assuming forr a 94 it has a bunch of miles, I would bet on a slipping clutch along with a pressure plate that is glazed over. I doubt the transfer case, that's just a chain drive mechanism with nothing much to slip in there. In 2 wheel drive the transfer case drives pretty much straight through and shouldn't add to the problem.

If the clutch has over 80K on it, replace and resurface the pressure plate at the same time.

Does the clutch pedal have about 1/4" of play before it begins to engage? If not adjust the clutch play 1st and see if that helps.

Let me know if you have a further symptoms to share.
