Question about 1997 Pontiac Sunfire

1 Answer

I have a 1997 Pontiac sunfire 2.2l manual transmission. After driving a while, I begin to get a feeling of clutch slippage. However, I disconnect the tps and it goes away. I have replaced the tps, iac valve, and checked for vacuum leaks. I've found none. Driving the car without the tps has seemingly solved the slippage feeling but of course leaves the check-engine light on. Any ideas?

The clutch system is hydraulic just like your brakes are. You have a slave cylinder and a master cylinder. You must have a leak somewhere, and will have to see what part it is, or have it looked at. Once replaced, the system needs to be bled of air just like brakes do.

How do i check if it needs oil on the manual transmission because the shifts are hard to change when running or is there something else to do beside a new clutch already done


Hard shifting may be caused be the clutch not releasing properly.If you have a new clutch your problem might be caused by your hydraulic clutch release system.When stopped and idling you should be able to shift gears without grinding.Reverse grinding may indicate a clutch release problem.You should have some clutch pedal travel up from the floor before you feel it engaging.The oil fill check is either at the speedo or a plug at the axle shaft level.Be sure to use factory recommended fluid.Gear oil is not a proper fluid.

2002 Sunfire TCC Solenoid replacement


hi..the transaxle converter clutch . tcc. uses a solenoid -operated valve located in the automatic transaxle to mechanically couple the engine flywheel to the output shaft of the transmission through the torque converter.that reduces the slippage loss in the converter.reducing emissions.but check the vss first.which is called the vehicle speed sensor.they both work together .if the vss is not working right it wont call on the tcc.
check this out..
