Hi, check your hydraulic clutch reservoir fill level. If it's empty, you have a leak and the system has drawn air into the line. You will need to repair the leak and bleed the system. I can probably provide repair procedures if you tell me your model and year and also where it is leaking from.

Haveing problems with getting in gear,had new clutch,and fly wheel


You didn't say how long ago the clutch and flywheel was fitted.

If it was recent the car should be returned to the repair shop for some free-of-charge rectication.

If the clutch is cable operated it might need adjusting or if the adjustment is automatic, perhaps it is broken.
If the clutch is hyraulically operated perhaps all the air wasn't bled from it leaving it with a spongy pedal feel and insufficient travel.

Perhaps there is too many carpets under the clutch pedal. It is not unusual to have to press the pedal right to the floor with a brand new clutch.

If the gear lever selects all the gears easily with the engine off, but not when the engine is started, the problem is likely to be the clutch.
If the pedal feel is normal and there is maximum travel being delivered to the visible clutch mechanism the problem is likely to be inside, requiring the removal of the transmission.

My 88peterbilt 15 speed is slippin in low range and in the last 2 gears what might be the problem


Most likely a clutch problem. What, if anything, has changed recently? Does the clutch have 25 years of use, or has it been replaced? Is there some "free play" at the top of the clutch pedal travel? If not, you might try adjusting the clutch pedal to bell housing linkage to create such travel, just to make sure you are getting all the clutch pressure that its pressure plate can provide.
It slips in low gear because that uses the most engine force to accelerate from a stop. As you shift up, you minimize the clutch load because you wait until the engine is revved up, indicating the acceleration load between shifts is not too great. In the highest gears you are driving at highway speed using very little power from the engine to maintain that speed. If you come to a slight upgrade, not enough to require downshifting, you add extra load, again more that the worn clutch can pass through to the axle.
Do you "slip" the clutch or "ride it" when starting or driving? We minimize clutch wear by using the lowest gear that allows the truck to start without using the fuel pedal. This may be how and why you wore out your clutch.
If you can't help the problem by adjusting the external linkage, you most likely need to replace the clutch. If you are unsure, try having a competent truck mechanic evaluate it first.

I have a new clutch but my truck wont go into gear


You might have somebody press the pedal as you get down and check the clutch travel. Might have an adjustment on the clutch arm.
Could have wrong pressure plate, did you match them. I would check the travel first.

Transmission slipping


This normally means your clutch is worn down and needs replacement. Much less likely is that the clutch pedal travel needs adjustment.

Replacement of the clutch requires removal of the gearbox and is much easier with a shop hoist. I'd recommend replacing the pressure plate assembly as well.

Clutch pedal travel is excessive. Sits about 2"


A clutch pedal takes MUCH more travel to function correctly, when compared to a brake system...

A clutch needs to be replaced (maybe) when it SLIPS, Chatters, Or fails to release...

Other than that, the clutch will need to be adjusted to allow for total release of the relese bearing when pedal is released, and full disengaugement when pedal is depressed....Have a mechanic look at the adjustement, as proper adjustment gives longer clutch life. This is a periodic adjustment item.

Burnt smell from clutch when im in 3rd gear


It sounds like the clutch is close to being worn out as the pressure plate is not gripping the clutch plate with sufficient force when power is applied. Before you consider replacing any thing, first check the clutch free travel adjustment because as the clutch plate wears the free travel does decrease and if there is no free travel, then there will be some releasing action on the pressure plate allowing cluth plate slip. Hydraulic setups are usually self adjusting but you should check the free travel of the clutch pedal which should be about 3/8 to 1/2 inch measured at the pedal rubber. This is done by adjusting the push rod that links the pedal arm to the piston in the master cylinder. Adjust by first loosening the locknut on the rod at the end where it attaches to the pedal arm and turning the rod in either direction to obtain the correct free travel. One adjusted retighten locknut.
For a cable setup there should at least 1/8 inch of free travel of the cable before it starts to move the clutch fork on the outside of the bell housing. To adjust, hold the operating fork so that the release bearing is touching the fingers of the pressure plate. You will need to turn the cable adjuster so there is only about 1/8 to 1/4 inch of free travel of the cable where it attaches to throw out fork before it starts to move the fork when the pedal is depressed.
If all adjustments are correct and clutch is still slipping then the pressure plate diaphragm spring has lost its tension and /or the clutch plate has worn down to the rivets. Either way you will have to do a complete clutch rebuild.

The clutch is not fully releasing. You can try putting it into some other gear first, then rapidly moving to first gear, but really, you need to either adjust the clutch, or get it repaired.

Clutch bites high up on pedal movement


check clutch master cylinder rod adjustment and pedal height should be just higher than brake pedal. could try and bleed system also.
most hydraulic clutch systems have high take up points, adjust master cylinder rod, check for free play at top after adjusting if all that is O.K. then clutch plate may be nearly worn out but not slipping at this stage.

Clutch slipping


first i would try adjusting the clutch cable because commonly people with think that they're clutch is going out when really just the cable has gotten stretched....try adjusting that first and if that works then you should be fine for another couple thousand miles but if you want to not have to worry bout it for awhile i would just replace teh clutch assembly....usually ranges from $200 to $450 depending on the clutch set and the mechanic that does the work for you. Let me know what happens. :)
