No,the throwout bearing is located inside the bell housing,which should be dry at all times

Blew an oil line while driving. replaced it, added oil. car started right up prob is auto trans would not engage in any gear. no previous problem. does low oil press affect the trans??

Blew an oil cooler line or a transmission cooler line? Low transmission fluid would keep it from moving. Trying to drive it to long with transmission fluid about empty, would burn up the transmission. Oil pressure won't affect the transmission.

When engine is hot trans will stay in second gear until car cools...i was told needs a new trans selenoid pack ...$700!!!!

Check also the fluid if it is low or needs replacing. Other than the solenoid, the transmission fluid is also affected by heat.

Could low trans fluid make the clutch not engage

for a simple answer, yes-it has to have sufficent line pressure to engage, and low levels will dramatically affect line pressure.

Transmission shudders and slips, especially in low. Reverse doesn't seem to be affected.

if you are lucky and have not overheated it you may add some fluid,if not start looking it a junk yard for another trans

The throwout bring will not ingage

check the fluid level on the firewall.
sounds like you need a new setup.
the little master cylinder and the fluid lines and the unit on the transmission are all one piece.
can get it at most auto parts stores.

wii involve pulling out trans.
check the clutch assy. at same time.

Cant keep fluid in my clutch. i fill up my clutch reservoir and it just leaks out of the transaxle right away

The hydralic slave cylinder is embedded inside the throwout bearing which is your leaking problem. The trans would have to be removed to replace this bearing. It is unlike the older models which had a external one mounted to the side of the trans or mounted on the frame

04 chevy cavalier. clutch started sticking to the floor. loosing fluid but can`t see where?

replace and re bleed clutch accuating cylinder, hoses and resevoir. Possibly a leaking throw out bearing, See if leak is coming from underhood firewall (Drivers side) or from between where eng and trans meet. If leaking at eng trans its the throwout bearing

The gear grinds soemtimes and it is hard at time

you will need the clutch checked over. the clutch hydraulic system is first to check. check fluid level, if its low, top it off with brake fluid, and find where its leaking. if the fluid is full, make sure the pedal feels normal.if its in the hydraulic system, the trans doesnt have to come out, but a clutch replacement it will....... does the clutch slip? if so it will need replacement. if noisy only when depressing the pedal, the throwout bearing, or pilot bearing may be bad, and clutch replacement will be needed. be sure to have the flywheel resurfaced and replace the rear main oil seal while the flywheel is off.
