If its only when you push the clutch i would clean and lube the transmission input shaft. its a routine thing and can get noisy if theyre dirty. this is a two man job. first remove the access cover on trans. then have one person pump clutch while you spray brake cleaner up on the input shaft. spray a good amount on it you want it clean as possible. let it dry for a few minutes then as he is pumpin the brakes spray some white lithium grease on the input shaft. again you want a good amount on there. this will give you a smoother clutch and hopefully quiet what you might be hearing. bein a technician i have ran into this complaint and had alot of customers describe this as a whistling sound. good luck!

Mid sixties Ford 4000. Suddenly decided to make severe grinding noise when trying to engage gears and cannot engage gears. Weirdly this does not always happen. Gears engage OK when engine not running


Hello, you may have more success in the proper category of lawn or farm stuff. Fortunately I have same Tractor. Sounds like clutch fork is not moving clutch the same way each time you press clutch. Could be clutch needs play removed. Sometimes there is a pivot ball for the clutch fork to rest on. When the pivot ball is worn the clutch fork can rock. Also remember RPM to give gears time to stop spinning before changing gears.

How to tell if you have a bad clutch


quick test . Place in 1st gear with the hand brake on tight . Let out the clutch as you rev the motor. IF the rpm,s die then the clutch is good . This test will last about 10 seconds and no longer. Check the position of the clutch slave cylinder rod at rest and if it is extended out and will not move back into the cylinder when you push it then replace the clutch master cylinder as the compensating port is blocked and holding pressure in the system

I have a stock '02 RSX-S with 93K miles.I recently started hearing a ticking sound coming from the engine while accelerating at low rpm's in any gear (i can hear it at higher rpm's too, but at that point...


Sounds like an Exhaust Manifold leak on only one cylinder. The Gasket is probably blown out. Check around where manifold is bolted to the engine. Any leaks are usually evident by a black sooty deposit.

Revs slow to drop when changing gears


right the steeper motor is playing up which is why the engine is taking a long time to drop RPM as for teh clutch its auto adjust so if clutch worn then renew it ,clutch life depends on the driver so i can get 150.000kms out of a clutch and one of my customers only gets less than 20,000kms out of a clutch as he pulls away in second and slips clutch when changing gears ,i cringe when i hear him driving past the yard

95 Neon jerks in low rpm acceleration. + loss of torque


Your idea of a clutch problem is correct. you will need to replace the clutch,pressure plate, throw out bearing and have the flywheel turned or replaced on car. Sorry to tell you this but it will have to be done to correct your problem. shop around to find a good quality clutch repair kit with all the parts that you will need. and remember in shopping that all companys have different warrantys on there products. hope this will help you.

2002 T&C 3.8, 4 speed auto heavy clutch or brake smell


1st thing to check is when you put in gear when cold and again when hot Take off fast ,,the noise if there igoes up and down with the speed and rpm ,,the noise you can hear mostly is the pump in side the gear box is not pushing enough pressure to the Forward Band clutch which drives the car so it has to slip and that is what you can smell the clutch bands burning And the more you can smell it the worse its getting and soon will let you down in a place you dont want to be..
So get it checked out new or as soon as poss
The A/Con clutch also sounds like its worn out.

2003 Hyundai Tiburon making a weird noise


Hello mpolci...The 2003 Tiburon was sold to the public with a defective clutch, it failed due to warpage and bad pressure plate... among other things. There are MANY class action lawsuits. Did you resurface or replace the flywheel when the clutch was replaced? Did you go with an aftermarket clutch kit, or factory? Also the slave cylinder on the 03 was known to have a defective valve.
You can try checking the levels and bleeding the system and if you still have problems, then it could be a release bearing, a loose clutch pad, or a broken pressure plate spring....If the clutch is still under warranty, i would return it to the installer.
Good luck, i hope this helps...please rate me a fixya.

When clutch pushed in it makes high pitched squeel


Im a mechanic, i think you will find it will be the clutch release bearing on the clutch fork, when you push the clutch in it will push the fork which will push the clutch release bearing onto the clutch plate which rotating with the engine revs

1991 prelude drivetrain problem


Wow, that's weird! If the speedometer is moving, but you aren't, then yes, something in the axle is not connected to the wheel. Were there any weird noises or symptoms before this happened? Either the cv joint is completely shot (u should have heard noise when turning a long time before this) or the spline could be stripped, but that is something I haven't heard of. If the clutch was shot, the engine would rev, but speedo is connected to transmission, so the speedo would not work if the clutch didn't. Let me know if anything was going on before this happened, I have a 91 Prelude (2nd since 1994, love it). countrycurt0
