Question about Lionel (31956) Thomas The Train Set

1 Answer

Thomas engine keeps uncoupling.

Looks as if the spring on the engine is weak. Is there fix I can do to this? Or am I doomed to return it?

Check the warranty. If still under, return it. Otherwise find a store that sells small black rubber bands, around 1/2" in diameter. Wrap one around the coupler behind the knuckle. Check to see if the coupler still opens. If it does move the rubber band either forward or backward until the coupler does not open.

Thomas the Tank engine coupler not holding on the cars.


Check the warranty. If still under, return it. Otherwise find a store that sells small black rubber bands, around 1/2" in diameter. Wrap one around the coupler behind the knuckle. Check to see if the coupler still opens. If it does move the rubber band either forward or backward until the coupler does not open.

this is a verry common problem with the awd bravada a tsb was sent out telling you to change the transfer case fluid to gm tract 2 fluid well let me tell you my story first i am a mechanic of 40 + years i have a 2000 bravada awd i changed the fluid 2 times like the tsb says no fix got a low mile used transfer case instaled it put the trac 2 fluid in it no fix replaced the awd module no fix so i decided to take my old transfer case apart and see what makes it tick i found out that a spring pushes the clutch fork to disingage the front drive shaft clutches the encoder moter applys the fork sending power to the f drive shaft the spring was weak and did not disingage the cluch pack THIS IS AN EASY FIX but you should replace the fluid first if it remains the same then remove the plug in the bottom and i mean the bottom of the transfer case cant miss it it looks like a tall bolt when you remove the plug a spring will come out with it i shimed my spring about a 1/4 inch PROBLEM GONE i tested this on my old transfer case on the bench first and it worked fine i also tryed streching the old spring that did not work maybe replacing the spring with a new one might also work also i would think a new encoder motor might return to rest easer then an old one this spring is what returns the encoder motor and pushes the clutch pack to 2wd

Clutch sticking on 2000 pontiac firebird trans am. clutch comes halfway up but need to pull it up the rest of the way w/my foot.


There is actually a fix for this problem. There is no return spring for the clutch being that it is hydraulic. You need to take the master cylinder out and drill the return line an 1/8th of an inch. The reason why it sticks is because the return line is too small. All the fluid is backed up and once it is cleared, the clutch will return to normal. There is an article in GM High Performance magazine online that has the step by step instructions to fix it. Hope this helps.
