Hi Craig:
The first thing I would check is the "slack" in the clutch cable at the hand lever. There is an adjuster and a lock nut. Sometimes the lock nut gets loose and the adjuster backs out so that the clutch cannot fully engage.

Please help.. my mini will not go in gear, i can force it into the higher gears with brutal force but have no chance getting it in 1st.. goes in all gears prrfect when engine is off


This is a sign of a clutch problem. You either need to have it adjusted, there is an adjustment screw for the clutch cable, at the firewall. Or you have the cable slipping on the bracket near the transmission itself. Or you actually have some slipping going on in your clutch assembly.

A reputable mechanic, can isolate the problem for you, and if he's honest, if it's only an adjustment that's required, he will do that for you, instead of saying you need to rebuild your clutch.

Stuck in 2nd? Is your clutch slipping? When you have the clutch pulled in, and you try to start it, does the bike surge forward? If so, adjust clutch.

I had anew clutch in the hyundia in 2010 it seems to be slipping how long should it last can it be adjusted


Clutch life is determined by several factors, most of which you have control over. Excessive revs while slipping the clutch to move slowly, resting you foot on the clutch pedal instead of the foot rest, starting to move in 2nd instead of 1st, allowing the vehicle to run back when engaging the clutch to go forward. Assuming you do not do any of these things then it comes back to the clutch master cylinder being faulty and a compensating port is blocked and holding the clutch partially disengaged. The clutch is not normally adjustable. I would check the condition of the fluid and if it is almost black I would replace the m/cyl. Find out if the m/cyl has been replace if possible

Car slipping in uphill acceleration is it my tires or something more is wrong with it?


Hi,
If the engine is revving but your not going forward then it sounds like your clutch is slipping if it is a manual, or the clutch packs are worn if it is an automatic transmission. Either way the clutch or transmission will need to be repaired or replaced. Hope this helps, let me know how you get on.

My clutch is slipping on my 1993 toyota truck. Are there adjustments I can make myself. I am fairly handy, but not a car repair expert.


Sorry, there are no adjustments on your vehicle., The clutch is activated via hydraulic pressure. The master and slave cylinders are "self-adjusting". If the clutch is slipping, you are going to need to pull the trans and replace the clutch assembly. Changing the hydraulics will not help a slipping clutch at all.

Thanks for choosing FixYa for advice!

The clutch keeps slipping, but it is fairly new. Someone said something about putting a clutch disc in and I'm wondering if that would solve it or if it needs a brand new clutch again.


If the clutch is fairly new,hopefully it hasn't been damaged.Under the dash is an adjustment for the clutch.You have to get in the car with your back on the floorboard looking up with a light.Locate the clutch pedal and follow it up to where it is mounted under the dash.Look forward to the firewall and you will see a gold colored rod coming back from the firewall,and attach to the clutch pedal.Where the rod is threaded,close to the clutch pedal,is a jam nut,and it will be either 12mm or 14 mm in size.Loosen the jam nut and back it off several threads.Now turn the gold rod inwards towards the rear of the car,and that should make the clutch engagement point lower on the clutch pedal travel,or closer to the floor,and should make the clutch stop slipping,unless,of course,it is damaged beyond adjustment,and needs to be replaced.This is the adjustment procedure for the clutch when a new one is installed,and once a year,after that.
