Rear set teeth may be worn / chain worn and jumps (the bearings-spacers loosen in chain links) / or if you have put new chain make sure its the same length.

When riding the peddles slip,it appears that the chain is engaged and that the axle is slipping and make s the peddles spin, not engaged


If this is a coaster brake bike (single speed, no hand brakes) then the problem might be inside the rear wheel hub. If that is the case then you can only fix it by completely dis-assembling the rear wheel hub - or it might be simply that the chain is slipping, which would not happen unless the chain is too loose which would be indicated by the bottom of the chain hanging down too low. However, if this is a multi-speed bike, then it could be that the chain and rear-wheel cogs are worn - which can be fixed by replacing the freewheel and the chain - however, it takes a lot of use or rust and dirt before that level of wear happens.

On mountain bike the chain or peddles seem to slip or click goning up a hill. Is it the chain slipping or worn gear?


It sounds like your chain is loose. Flip the bike over and loosen up the nuts on the back tire and tighten the nuts as you are pulling the rim back making the chain as tight as you can. You might need someone to help you pull as you tighten the nuts.

My chain sounds like it keeps slipping


It is not slipping unless your sprockets are SHOT.

There should be about 3/4 inch play in the center bottom of your chain when the bike has a normal load on it (read YOU).

Now then, your clutch could be slipping ... have you adjusted it?

I hope this helps you

The rachets in the rear gear cog have gone bad.  Buy a new gear cluster and have it installed on your rear wheel.  about $30

Chain


Go to any reputable shop/mechanic; you probably need a new chain and/or sprocket...OR Possibly just a chain adjustment. Don't wait around, do it asap, I wouldn' t play with this particular problem.
