I have a 98 Ford F150 4WD I have replaced the clutch slave cylinder. I did not replace the clutch disc or pressure plate when I had the transmission out as it was in good shape. I am the second owner and have found out that this truck has a history of losing clutch slave cylinders. I did notice a clutch burning smell after I replaced the slave cylinder. It has been about one year since repairs were made (5000 miles). Does this make/model have inherent clutch problems or have I overlooked somethi

Clutch Replacement I need to replace the clutch in my 93 Saturn SL1, I've replaced two clutches (in other cars) and didn't think this would be a big deal, but I am told I have to pull the motor and trans to install a new clutch kit (--disc, pressure plate, and throw out bearing) Can I just to slide it over to the subframe and add another support, like jackstand, to hold it up? Do I have to remove the motor?
THe answer to your question is YES. No need to remove the motor. You do have to pull both axels (make sure you drain the lubricant first). I just did one last weekend that way and it worked ok. ... 1993 Saturn SL1
1992 jetta, replaced gearbox,now clutch push rod will not move the pressure plate and pedal is on the floor, tried putting old trani back and the same thing happenned. Release bearing seems to be in the dissengaged position even though the clutch will not move. Checked out pressure plate with a new one at store and they are the same, i.e. no bent parts or springs etc.
Check for hydraulic resevoir iam almost certain it is fluid actuated and that would call for a piston in a slave cylinder ... 1996 Volkswagen Jetta

2001 Dodge 4x4 diesel 6-speed. Replaced clutch and pressure plate, now the starter won't turn the engine over.. Tried turning it over with the harmonic balancer, and the output shaft on the x-fer case. No luck, it is locked up tight. Flywheel, clutch and pressure plate all installed to spec. Tranny and engine mate tight. Why is the engine locked??
One problem pops into head when I think about your description of the problem. The bolts that hold the pressure plate to the flywheel may be too long, causing the engine block to interfere with the rotation of the flywheel. ... 2001 Dodge Ram 2500 Truck

You could have put the clutch plate in backwards. ... 2001 Saturn S-Series
I have a B2500 that has recently had a clutch, pressure plate and throw out bearing replaced. Also the master cylinder for the clutch has been replaced. Every so often the truck becomes hard to shift unless I pump the clutch. Sometimes the cap on the reservoir for the master cylinder is tight, like there is a vacuum. Sometimes opening this reservoir causes the vacuum to leave and the clutch to operate normally. Sometimes the clutch master must be bled. A local shop told me to check the end
You may have to check the clearance between master cylinder push rod and piston. (just above pedal)Should be approx .020" or about thickness of hacksaw blade. ... Mazda B-Series Truck

I just replaced a clutch, throw out berring, pressure plate, clutch master cylender on my 1997 saturn sl. Once all put back together my clutch pedal doesnt have any pressure. I can change gears if the car is off but not while it is running.

2002 Saturn SL1 requires clutch replacement. After disconnecting the transmission, can the transmission be moved to get enough clearance so the clutch disc, pressure plate and release bearing be replaced without having to take the transmission out of the car ? Thanks.
Not usually. in a front wheel drive car the trans should be dropped out of the way to allow clearance sorry but its really not much more work with a set of ramps supporting the car a floor jack can support the trans while you disconnect everything al ... Saturn SL1

I need to adjust the clutch on a 1995 standard mighty max mitsubishi I changed the clutch disc, pilot bearing, throw-out bearing and pressure plate, but the clutch stays against the fly wheel when running in neutral and will not allow it to go in any gear. the cable is moving the throw-out bearing fork and to me the fork seems to be to easy to move back and forward. also the clutch cable(although moving the fork) is not in very good shape and needs replacing I'm ruling it out as the sole problem
You will need to turn the cable adjuster so there is only about 1/8 inch of free travel of the cable where it attaches to throw out fork before it starts to move the fork. Once the throw out bearing is achieving its full travel the clutch sh ... 1995 Mitsubishi Mighty Max
We have an '01 Mazda Tribute, 132,00 mi., 4cyl. manual, 2wd. we recently replaced the clutch, pressure plate, throwout bearing, pilot bearing and the slave cyl. because the clutch was slipping after the engine warmed up. Now a week after the repairs the clutch has started slipping again. I am stumped. I can't figure out why the new assy is slipping. There were no leaks that effected the clutch we removed. It was actually in fair shape. we resurfaced the flywheel. Any help would be appreciated.
When it starts to slip again open up the bleeder screw on the clutch slave cylinder. If the slipping stops then the problem is with the clutch master cylinder. The fluid is not able to return to the reservoir as it expands with heat and is keeping pr ... Mazda Tribute
