I just reciently bought a 98 monster 900 i'm new to ducatis and this is my first bike besides countless dirt bikes. anyways i have had it for about 3 months and it has been running fine till about 2 days ago when i move off from a complete stop the bike shakes and stutters and almost stalls everytime but when i actually get it moving it still shifts fine but its performance over all has been sluggish after i get it going. im guessing the clutch is grabbing a little bit then slipping and thats whats causeing it to act like this? or i could be completely off. does this sound familar to anyone? thanks in advanceIt may be a lean burn condition with the engine or maybe the friction plates have worn some deep grooves into the clutch basket, or maybe some of your steel plates in the clutch pack are corroded. Maybe some of each. I had 2 out of 3 of the above with my S4 but installed a new clutch basket, clutch pack, pressure plate, and spider retainer and just enrichened the fueling today and set the idle at 1200rpm. All much better.,,,

Fan clutch wires cut.. what colours go to what on an 2004 dodge 2500 5.9 cummins

26257369-zcdpbucemf3wpt03nxn2ad3r-1-0.jpg this should be what you are needing.
the fan clutch being connected back stock is critical to the air conditioning system as well.. if the fan clutch doesnt work properly, the ac compressor will self destruct. mine did 3 times before i discovered my clutch was bad. if you have to replace the clutch, spend the extra money and buy the clutch from the dealer. i originally bought one from a very reputable aftermarket parts dealer that i have never had an issue with parts purchased from them, and then later ended up buying one from the dealer. the ac compressor is ok to buy from any good retailer, but from what i have heard the fan clutches for the diesels(viscous clutch) as well as the ones for the gassers are best bought from the dealer..

By what I can figure by what you are saying. First are you low on clutch hydraulic fluid if so you must look for a leak. If your not losing fluid then your master clutch cylinder is bad and must be replaced.

Losing pressure from my clutch

What type of car, what year, what is the mileage, what type of clutch? You could have a worn out clutch, you could have a bad slave cylinder, a bad master cylinder, the springs that create the pressure between the clutch and pressure plate might be failing or an overheated/warped clutch pressure plate.

Hey, i'm looking to buy a used 2003 volkswagon passat gls 2.8 v6 manuel, the clutch doesn't engage befor it's almost all the way out,i told the dealer but he says that the clutch is fine...

here's what you can do to fix your clutch.

1. if your clutch still uses clutch cable (there is a cable between the transmision and the clutch pedal), the you can adjust the clutch release by tightening/loosen the clutch pedal. adjustments can be done on the transmission side of the clutch cable.
2. hydrovac clutch with self correcting feature. just pull your clutch pedal for a few seconds and check if the clutch release changes.
3. hydrovac clutch without self correcting. between the clutch pedal and the clutch master, you can see a piece of metal rod that connects the 2. this metal is called push rod. there are screws/nuts at the clutch pedal to adjust this push rod. just adjust this screw to your prefered clutch release.
