I just changed my oil, 15w15 repsol, and also flush the clutch system with new Dot4, and now my 95 m900 (dry clutch) is having difficulty downshift. I can shift up but gears "sticks" when shifting down. any advice?

CODE PO741 - TORQUE CONVERTER CLUTCH SYSTEM STUCK OFF WHEN THIS CODE COMES UP YOUR TRANSMISION FLUID TOO LOW OR FLUID + FILTER NEED CHANGING YOU HAVE A RESTRICTION IN TRANSMISSION LINES TO RADIATOR CHECK TO MAKE SURE LINES NOT BENT IN ANY WAY.TCC FEED VALVE OR TCC REGULATOR VALVE IS STUCK OFF DUE TO SEDIMENT OR BINDING.THE OIL PRESSURE SCREEN IS CLOGGED OR DEBRIS IN THE OIL PAN.TAKE CAR TO A TRANSMISSION SHOP GOING TO COST YOU.YOU NEED TRANSMISSION FLUSH AND YOU NEED A FILTER AND FLUID CHANGE.ITS NOT CHEAP FIX BUT YOU CAN CHANGE FLUID + FILTER YOUR SELF TO SEE IF IT HELPS BUT BEST TO HAVE SHOP TO FLUSH OUT TORQUE CONVERTER. PUT NEW TRANSMISSION FLUID IN THE ENTIRE SYSTEM SOUND LIKE OLD FLUID CONTAMINATED WITH SEDIMENT NEED TO GET IT ALL OUT TRANSMISSION.
If your car is a manual gear change, your clutch may need adjusting or repair or the gearbox oil may need changing. If your car is an auto check to see if you are using the correct transmission fluid , Peugeot autos do not use normal ATF and will fail if the correct fluid is not used. Hope this helps Marshall
Do not put oil in this system.It uses brake fluid in the reservoir.If the system doesn't have any fluid in it, there is a leak, and both the clutch master cyl and the clutch slave should be replaced. They both were used the same amount of times, and wear evenly. When you add fluid, the clutch master cyl compresses the fluid down the line/hose into the clutch slave cyl. This depresses the clutch fork/arm and disengages the clutch disc so the input shaft into the transmission stops moving, allowing the trans to be put into gear. LOOK FOR THE FLUID LEAKING TO ISOLATE THE PROBLEM. This is a closed system, and the fluid never gets used, unless there is a leak.
Unless you have a record of these fluids being changed in the past 18 months you should definitely change them. These fluids will degrade over time and need to be changed at appropriate intervals. You should also flush the engine radiator and cooling system and replace with new coolant to the manufacturer's specs unless this has been done in the past 18 months. Also ensure you change the engine oil and filter frequently (certainly more frequently than the manufacturer maximum interval specs which is based on optimum driving conditions which does not reflect reality.)
Brake fluid - every 2 years minimum Clutch fluid - every 2 1/2 years minimum PS fluid - every 3 years Coolant flush and change - every 2 years Engine oil - every 3500-4000 miles or 5 months minimum whichever is sooner Oil filter - every second oil change.
In a manual car you do not change or flush the transmission fluid. the
only fluid you change is the gear oil for the clutch. The manual
transmissions do not have the ability to be flushed or changed as it
does not have the same internals as an automatic transmission
