Slave cylinder and line were replaced at a local dealership. Last year prior to the repair the clutch wouldn't disengage once the clutch had warmed up. It was working fine after the repair. Now along with the new problems there is a whining sound at every speed that I travel at. The sound had never been there before. During operation after the bike is moving the bike operates normally no slipping in the clutch no hesitation, operates as normal just doesn't sound normal. I'm thinking about replacing the clutch pack, basket, throwout bearing, and pressure plate bolts, but will all that really solve the problem. Especially since I don't really know whats going on. Sorry for the wordiness but any help would be appreciated,I had a similar symptom after installing a new Barnett clutch pack. The clutch worked fine when fully engaged, finding neutral was fine, etc. However, everynow and then, when taking off from a stop in first, the engagement point would change from the middle of the lever range to the end of the lever range. The first time it happened it caught me out and I almost fell over while trying to take off from an uphill stop and turn. Anyway, I took the clutch pack out, cleaned the friction plates with contact cleaner, cleaned the drive plates with a Scotchbrite pad, and put it back together. The problem has not reoccurred since.,,,

Transit 2004 2-4 brake pedal pulsates sometimes also have some problems with gears when get it into gear it seems to suddenly jumps as if the clutch has engaged even when the pedal is pressed to floor


The brake is probably from an erratic wheel sensor. Check codes, may have stored it in history. If there are several, then you need a scanner to watch the wheel sensors. see which one is dropping out. The transmission jump is from a bad master or slave cylinder. The system is not depressing the throw out bearing far enough, leaving the clutch slightly engaged.

Acc. squeek noise due to linkage issue, get it lubicated.

Regarding the clutch, you check the links, clutch plate springs condition. If there is wornout parts get it replaced. Gear shifting will be solved once you fix your clutch problems.

Moderrate resistance stops the drill from driving and to scream


The grinding you're hearing is the normal sound for the clutch. There's a ring with numbers on it the higer the setting the more torque it'll take for the clutch to slip. Many of the newer drill & drivers have a drill setting at the high end of the clutch settings others have a separate drill & driver setting. This site will give you most everything you need.

A clutch issue youtend to have more of an engagement problem with 1st and reverse gear for a small time period before you notice other gears.You want to check the clutch hydrolic system for any leaks(clutch slave at transmission,clutch master,which you look for leakage on interior above clutch pedal)and at fluid resevoir.you also want to double check condition of trans fluid. strongly recommend using only HONDA BRAND MANUAL TRANS. FLUID when doing maintinance,fluid should be replaced every 30k on this car.The Honda brand fluid is like night and day on these cars,it WILL make a difference in shifting!!TRust Me on this point! Sorry now back to your main clutch issue,when driveing and you go to shift gears and normally notice grinding,with clutch pedal in shft out of gear and before engageing it into next gear do a double pump of clutch pedal then see if when continuing to next gear if it engagees smoother.if so you know you have without a dout a clutch pressure plate/disc problem. I can tell you that in twenty years the only manual transmissions themselves that ever had problems were due to outside influences(gear oil in transmission,improper driveing,etc.)let me know what you find and we can go from there..JOEL

its possible your clutch cable got stretched out. if you are lucky, your car came with an adjustable cable stock, and the slack can be picked up, it not, the cables arent too expensive, and with a little work, you could install it yourself. but its not the most fun job.

have your friend sit in the car and push the clutch pedal, and measure how far the little arm connected to the tranny (that will move up and down when the clutch pedal is pushed and let out). it should move almost an inch at least.(generally) some cars if the clutch is worn enough dont require it to move quite as far.

It is either your clutch master bleeding down, or your slave cylinder is leaking. Should be able to check inside the truck for a leak from behind the clutch master, the slave is by the trans.

Clutch problems


If your clutch is not disengaging completely it makes it difficult to get into gear. If it was one gear it may be a synchronizer, but from your description I would say its the clutch.
If your clutch actuator is hydraulic, your master or slave cylinder may be causing the problem. When the seals start to go bad, the clutch will not disengaged completely.

There is usually a dimension in the maintenance manual about checking the gap between the clutch disc and the flywheel. Your local library should have some sort of maintenance manual or perhaps you could find some figures online.
