    If you used an oil with molybdenim (If my spelling is right) it will cause your clutch to slip. This is used as an assembly lube. It is used in some synthetics.

Not being able to see the bike makes it hard to assess. Get your self a manual, if you haven't got one, go to http://www.carlsalter.com/motorcycle-manuals.asp , and download one. Once you have it apart you will be able to see the damage, and rectify it, and you may even work out what caused it. Sounds to me as if you blew a seal, whether from to much oil or not is very hard to say.

What cause a the transmission to slipp an not go into drive are reverse ?


The clutch likely needs to be replaced.
Its a hydraulic system if somehow air got into the system it wouldn't shift to good but the clutch wouldn't slip because that would create a disengage problem..
Clutch slip is not engaging but would cause some shifting issues do to grab then slip condition.
How many miles are on the clutch.

Well i would say the clutches have sat dry to long. You may change the oil and it solve the problem but more than likely new clutch discs.

Hi, I have 2002 Legacy L wagon. The clutch is engaging/disengaging very high. Can I adjust it back down?


Sorry your problem is easy ...all you need is a complete new clutch assy .
As the clutch is a self adjusting unit and the only thing that causes it is either you use it like a hotrod and slip the clutch when powering up OR rideing the clutch when on hills or at the lights,,,or the car has done a lot of miles..
But if the clutch drives 1/2 from the top then replace the lot dont replace just centre plate you want the

5w of oil difference is not the problem but using hypoid oil in the trans case will. Change the fluid and make sure you have the clutch adjusted correctly I believe it is 37mm from clutch cable boss on the block to the point on the top of the clutch pivot arm where the cable attaches. ,,

Not totally disengaging, not properly installed, poorly aligned shift fork. What makes you feel its "burned out"? once taken apart the condtion of the clutch will indicate with wear patterns what truly happened. "riding" the clutch would also do so.

Clutch replacement on 2004 tiburon with a v6 6 speed


I have a solution for your clutch failure.
ALL... Hyundai Tiburons from 2003 and on use a clutch slave cylinder delay valve.
It is designed to smooth your clutch engagement.
Problem?.. It RUINS clutches by slowing down clutch engagement.
It actually MAKES your clutch slip!
All you need to do is REMOVE this silly little 8 dollar part and not only will your clutch feel fantastic, you will have normal clutch wear!
I myself own a 2004 Tibby, and took the valve out since early 2006 and have put 25,000 miles trouble free miles from it.
I thought the clutch felt "Odd".. being a long time driver of manual transmissions, it just wasnt right.
I felt like there might be something slowing down the clutch engagement.
I was right.
This can be considered a Mod, because it improves performance (lack of slipping).
Why Hyundai used this part at the cost of warranty claims is beyond me, but I have given you the solution to your problem.
This part effects both 2.0L,I4 and 2.7 V6 engines.
This will not affect your warranty because they will never know its missing. ;)
I feel hyundai needs to take care of its customers, but I assure you, no matter how you get this problem resolved from the dealer.. PLEASE REMOVE THE DAMN VALVE.. you wont regret it!
:)

Only way to check out the problem for sure is to drop the gearbox out and examine the clutch. Having gone this far in to the internal workings. It would make best sense to replace the clutch and pressure plates. Oil leaks can be repaired at the same time. No need to go to a main dealer because clutch replacement on a V6 is technically a very similar and no more difficult to replacement on any other Vectra
