Can you just replace clutch disc or should you replace the hole clutch it is on Chevy 350

You can replace just the clutch disc. But with the labor involved I recommend replacing the pressure plate and throw out bearing at the same time.

1985 pickup truck is having problems I put it in gear it will drive juss very slow and over revs what do I do. I have money just need advice. As well other gears are hard to catch

If you have manual clutch the it appears that the clutch is not operating as it should. Check if there is clearance between the throw out arm and the slave cylinder rod and if not replace the clutch master cylinder as it is holding pressure in the line and not allowing the clutch to fully engage. If it is a cable operation then replace the cable

WHERE IS THE A/C compressor clutch relay located on the 2002 buick Rendezvous

You're not being fair !. Don't believe you searched properly, if that's all you got. Anyway, you just posted today. No one got around yet to tell you the A/C clutch relay is in the power distribution box by the battery. The cover should tell relay position.
The "search for anything" box above is actually pretty good. Several years of experts' solutions on all types of problems. Quality of solutions varies, of course! But you will find some top notch experts here who really know what they are talking about. And it's free help, anyway, and worth a lot more than no help at all. Give the site a chance. You may change your mind.

My clutch went right to the floor a couple days ago in my '94 Isuzu Rodeo. Now, I am having a hard time getting into reverse and shifting, but I am not having any issues with RPMs or anything like that. Is...

If you can get the transmission down you can replace the clutch assembly on your own. I assume you have original clutch installed in the vehicle. This sounds like a clutch problem and if you have a Hydraulic Clutch assembly it could just need service. You could get a Haynes Repair manual on the vehicle from Auto Zone or most major Auto Repair stores and that would give you the steps involved in doing the repair. Other than getting the Transmission down it's not really that difficult of a job.

How to replace the clutch? I have a hydraulic clutch and the petal went to the floor today, I assume the clutch went out

the first thing that i would check is the fluid level in the clutch master cylinder. It is just like the brake system. When there is not enough fluid or if there is air in the system this can cause the pedal to go to the floor. If this is ok then a portion of the clutch MIGHT have went out. Let me know if the hydraulics are ok.

99 chevy cavalier z24 clutch replacement

Replacing a clutch is a major provedure, often involving moving the engine off it's mounts, or removing the subframe and steering assembly to remove the gearbox.

Sometimes after a clutch refit, there are related problems with hoses or as in your case electrical faults.

It is probably a sensor cable that has been damaged - and that information is not available to the ECU or control gear. Other times it is the vacuum hoses which allow air in when damaged.

I would take the car back to have a diagnostic check. If it is found to be a sensor not reading or damaged pipe - offer to go halves on the replacement costs - as they are more likely to do this than pay outright. If it is quick for them, they may not charge anything because you were reasonable in the first place.
Sometimes if a connection was weak anyway - it's not entirely their fault.
