Question about 2005 Hyundai Tucson

1 Answer

My hyundai tucson is making quite a loud rattling sound at low revs but disappears around 2500 revs. it's worse in high gears

I've had the gear change weight setup changed as bracket was corroded and bled the clutch to remove any air from the system. unfortunately though its still doing it. clutch pressure is good and biting point is low so assuming that the clutch is fine but gear linkage is slightly noisy on gear change. nothing too excessive but noticable. Thanks in advance.

It may be worth looking at the timing belt tensioner pulley bolt to see if it hasn't worked loose, the belt may be about 3/4" of slack, which could cause the belt to slap against the inside of the cover at low rpms. It can also slowly shave away the backing of the belt. There could be about half a cup of timing belt dust/shavings collected in the bottom of the lower timing belt cover.

SOURCE: Hyundai Accent 2000 When clutch is depressed gears crunchy.

how many miles have you driven the car sence it came out of storage? you said it sat for 6 years it could be rust on fly wheel or pressure plate, that would make it shift like you said, because the clutch plate is either sticking to the fly wheel or pressure plate. when it shifts hard that means the clutch is not releacing all the way most likely because of the rust. i would just drive it and see if it comes out of it. it shoud not take long maybe 50 to 100 miles more or less. also i would chg. trans oil, setting that long moisture could have got in there, you know what they say about oil and water. also if it has a cable for clutch chk. see if it's hanging up to. setting that long rust becomes a big factor. hope this helps.

Check you have no air in the clutch fluid.Bleed the system.If that does not cure the problem then if you have good pressure at the pedal you pressure plate is faulty.Then the only solution is to replace the clutch.

This sounds like you may have a leak in the hydrulics of the clutch, the clutch slave is not disengaging the clutch all the way, this is the reason for the low bite pedal and hard to get gears, the most common problem is the fluid is low due to a leaking slave cylinder, i would look around the clutch components for a leak, hope this helps.

Hi, no specific causes has been attributed to this rattling noise, but according to complaint reports, the only correction for this noise problem is to replace the entire shifter assembly. Once the shifter assembly is replaced, the rattling noise disappears. The TSB (Technical service Bulletin) refers to a shudder on the tran-axle between third gear and fourth gear creating this noise problem.

Could be about to fail. The point where the clutch "bites or grabs" is normally half way from floor to top position.

My clutch pedal does not release at times after having changed a gear. My brake fluid seems to be leaking because I have to top up now and then?

I didn't see what car you have but, on my VWs the clutch and brake fluid are the same circuit. It sounds like you have a leak and are getting air into the system.
1. Locate the leak and repair it.

2. Bleed the system (of air) INCLUDING the clutch circuit. On my VWs there's one extra bleeder located behind the tranny. This one can be bled with simple gravity, unlike the brakes which must be done with a positive pressure or suction type machine. I prefer positive pressure. I use a Motive brand bleeder.

This is a good time to CHANGE your fluid. Check your manual or the brake reservoir cap for the correct fluid. Remove all the fluid from the reservoir when you start and top it off with fresh fluid. Bleed each brake caliper until the fresh fluid runs through. Congrats! You just changed your brake fluid.

I just replaced clutch on 1993 Honda accord ex and the release cylinder isn't pushing the release bearing enough to shift when car is running

I really need more info such as...Mileage,did you do the job yourself,if so was the slave cylinder and or clutch master cylinder changed and did you bleed the system..?...So I will explain without knowing,,...Before a clutch wears completely out we find ourselves constantly working the clutch pedal stressing all clutch system components..In most cases I have looked closely and found slave cylinder and clutch master cylinder leaking ..however the slave cylinder can wear out without leaking..Most importantly the fluid itself wears out every 15 to 20,000 miles.. You don't notice but the fluid gets thousands of tiny air bubbles in it and makes the clutch weak and spongy..(Same with brakes)..You should always bleed system with an assistant just as you would a brake system..,This alone will cause the problem you are experiencing...If you already know that and you have bled the clutch system then you know the slave cylinder is at fault..(UNLESS THERE WAS SOME TYPE OF MISALIGNMENT WITH RELEASE BEARING....YOU SHOULD ALWAYS CHANGE RELEASE BEARING WITH FORK WHEN DOING A CLUTCH SERVICE..)...I assume you did...I would inspect for leaks..,Bleed it again if no leaks...If that don't help and no leaks are found change slave cylinder and or master cylinder.....I hope this helps........Brooks/Metalpoet.......

Hyundai excel 1996 have to double clutch to change gears

Where is clutch engaging? close to firewall or up high on pedal. If up high, your clutch needs replacing, Low, your clutch is ok, maybe throwout bearing is bad or air in system or not adjusted correctly

I have a mitsubishi Galant 2002 manual. I struggle to engage gears when the car has been standing for a while and therefore cold. By pumping the clutch i can eventually start to select gears until I can...

gear oil is not the problem because it you started a cold engine and let it idle for a while (5 minutes) the gear box oil will thin out
IN correct oil generally shows as slashing gears when changing as it prevents the synco rings from operating properly
I f you have a hydraulic clutch ,it indicates a problem master cylinder and you are pressurizing the system to compress any air that should be bled out properly
If there has been no clutch system maintenance since new , or within the last 5 years ,it would be ideal to take it to an accredited brake and clutch specialist shop and have both the slave cylinder and master cylinder replaced

In spite of clutch pushed in all the way, the gears will not shift into any gear. Any ideas of how this problem might be solved?

Your clutch is not working. It is a hydraulic system just like brakes. If the fluid has leaked out , or gotten low enough to allow air in the system , the clutch will not work. The system can be refilled and bled of air , however , most likely it will just leak again. The leak can be in the master cylinder , which is easily replaceable , or it could be in the slave cylinder , which is a bigger job.
Many modern cars have an internal slave cylinder which means it is inside of the transmission bell housing , and unfortunately , the transmission has to be removed from the car to replace the part.
Some cars have the slave cylinder mounted externally which is an easier fix.
I CHECKED A PARTS SUPPLIER and found that if your car has the 3.0 L engine , the slave cylinder looks to be the externally mounted version , which is good news.

The cluch pedal does not come back up at times and the following time it does not work and consequently cannot swith to a gear on my Landrover Freelander 2003, 2L. diesel. Gilbert

i would change the clutch and while you are at it i would also change the clutch arm and bush as they are prone to seizing causing a stiff clutch action and dropped peddle and slave cylinder failure , slave is plastic and the ears and white coller snap off, when cold if your car feels like its jerking as you move off i would deffently say it is the clutch arm and not the clutch, but as you will need to remove gear box any way i would renew the clutch and thrust bearing.

1993 nissan 240sx clutch problems

Did you bleed the system fully after changing the cylinders? Those are the two main components that cause such problems. If you bled the system out, and it still has the problem, then you most likely have a ruptured line somewhere that is allowing air into the system.
