How do I no if I have clutch problems

clutch problems ae indicated by slipping ( engine rpms rising but not going ant where), slipping may be a faulty clutch master cylinder, shuddering as you let the clutch out ( clutch plate covered with grease /oil ---OR--- faulty engine mounts. pedal to the floor is a problem in the hydraulics or a cable failure. A cable failed and jammed will also cause a slipping clutch
so to summerise ,if the clutch is slipping --check out the hydraulics and cables. If it is shuddering --check out the engine mounts. Basically if it starts to slip after being driven for a period of time then it will be the clutch pressure plate /clutch plate worn

tyres thats normal thats how the dif works wheels go opposite ways. im thinking the linkage has snapped inside the gearbox. its a half circle that moves the cogs for the gears. if its locked in place then its slipped. it would need a replacement gearbox. part of it mus be broken off and in the cogs thats why its cutting the engine out it will act like a brake and just burn the clutch out if you keep doing it. replace the gear box, its lasted a long time from 1991 if its original, when fitting new gearbox replace the gearbox fluid. give the gear box a good flush out before fitting.

Hi Randy, The symptoms you report seem to suggest a serious problem with the gearbox. The usual cause of slipping of an automatic gear box are worn clutch and brake bands. These are inside the gear box and to replace them means removing the gearbox and stripping it to enable the replacement of the defective parts. Sorry, regards John

Transmission seems to slip a little when you start off

Hi if you have an automatic gear box then the chances are all you need to get done is have the filter and gearbox oil changed getting this done will improve your problem and should stop it slipping.

if you have manual gearbox then this indicates your clutch is on its way out and it will need replacing, this needs to be done sooner rather than later because if it shatter is could damage the whole gearbox.

let me know if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

I assume you are referring to manual transmission. Taking the aged of your vehicle into consideration your clutch plate assembly need to be replaced (Clutch and pressure plate and thrust bearing) The first symptom of a clutch system worn to it limits is the slipping experienced. Any vehicle's clutch will wear down over time and will need to be replaced after a while. As a interim the clutch can be adjusted at the hydraulic servo that activates the clutch lever entering the gear box. Open the hood and look down to your right at the gearbox. Let somebody step on the clutch pedal and look for the movement where the servo activates the clutch lever going inside the gearbox. It is possible to adjust the pin that moves in and out of the servo - adjust to shorter length (Only a fraction of a inch). Get in to the car start it up and engage 1 st gear. Let the clutch out slowly. It should start to "take" within a inch from the lowest pedal position. If not shorten the pin a bit more. "Shortening" of the pin must be stop when a gap becomes visible between the servo pin and the lever going into the gearbox - no driving of the vehicle should then be undertaken as it will let you down at the next intersection.
