Definitely sounds like the clutch went. There could be a few reasons for clutches failing too soon.

BUT when a friend bought his escort, the asshole told him that the clutch had been done. Turns out the clutch was old as hell. Because you can't physically see the clutch there is no way for anyone to prove that it has been changed, other than a service record from a shop.

Re: burnt clutch?

and dont cheap out on a clutch job whatever you do..the mechanic one before the last clutch job was a bit of a cowboy coz i was in a hurry to get my car back on the road didnt align the clutch plate to the pressure plate properly and my clutch springs snapped on me..so i ended up having to do two clutch changes in one year including a brand new flywheel...and oem flywheels from honda dealers are not cheap

Your lookin at anywhere from 250-1000 depending on what clutch you buy where you go to get it done, or if you do it yourself. Always go to privately owned garages for work. never go to big businesses like pep boys and shiit like that. They always charge an arm and a leg for labor. you may get the parts for 20 dollars cheaper but I'm tellin you. ask around for pricing.

who me?? Driving stick??? ROFLMFAO bro im the master of driving stick...i been driving stick since i was eleven..i dont drive anything but stick..

the reason why i asked is even when ur clutch is burnt out it doesnt go into gear at all..so ur car should still start..there is no reason to dip ur clutch unless the gearbox was knackered and the car was stuck in a gear like 1st or 2nd..

Dude chill out. He burnt out his clutch cuz he was drivin it hard. No reason to jump on him. He actually happened to be one of the chillest guys at one of the meets. His prelude is his daily driver. I'm sure he spent time and money on it, but he's got a benz that is his car to baby.

Re: burnt clutch?

Maybe I just got a bomb ass deal or somethin, but the clutch was around $100 and I got the flywheel resurfaced instead of buying a new one (if you can reuse the old one do it!) Then for labor it was about $200. So $300 to buy the clutch, get the flywheel resurfaced and install.

you did get a good deal. Clutches are only a little over $100 dollars. Its usually the labor thats like 400-500 dollars. Plus if he decides to go with an aftermarket clutch thats another 200-300 right there depending on quality.

Re: burnt clutch?

i think that he doesnt understand how clutches work. he thinks the peddle is related to the clutch in the fact that if the clutch is bad the peddle will not work. that is not the case at all. someone give this guy a like on how a manual transmission works.

by the way my clutch just went bad. it only slips when i power shift but it catches when im drivin normally. im gonna drive it till its totally gone. no money.

good luck

Theres a switch that has to be pressed in order to start the car so that insures the driver even if in gear, has the clutch pedal pressed down so he doesn't take off. On my Civic I had part of the clutch plate break and one of the springs became dislodged. The spring pretty much became lodged and locked it up. Needless to say it made shifting a PITA. Luckily I was able to limp the way home on the freeway for 30 miles, the hard part was once I got into town and had to stop at a stop sign. I would just pull it out of gear and the harder part was being able to get it to start going again, its hard to match the rev's to the gears speed when the tires aren't turning.

Re: burnt clutch?

So does no one around here change their own clutch then?? I mean, sounds like to me, if your willing to give it a go and have a 89% fail rate + the enjoyment of getting so pissed off you throw something threw a wall, then you should totally try on your own. And if you fail at first, thats when you hit up the forums saying "Im buying brewskys and some pizza for anyone willing to come over and help me with this"

Then thy problem is solved in 2 diffrent ways. The 1st way is that your drunk, and when your drunk with some buddies you can't not be having a good time. the 2nd way is that you got something finished + your drunk! its a win win situation!

Re: burnt clutch?

I changed the clutch on my civic myself, but thats a civic, and there was a lot less stuff to deal with... just jacked up the right side of the car, pulled the axle off, undid all the goodies, and its a wam bam thank you mam kind of deal! But not as quick...

Re: burnt clutch?

I was going to do the clutch myself w/ no experience then I heard it was a bitch on the 4th gen. :\ + I didn't have all the necessary tools to complete the job. Anyways real quick to make sure its the clutch...If you put it in gear at a complete stop and dump the clutch and floor it and you're only an inch from where you started...then yeah it's your clutch. Well either that or you left the hand brake up rofl.

I wasnt tryin to jump on the dude, its just how some guys should know better, im just lookin out and its like why did that have to happen is what gets me, but its not my car so im not worried, just overanalyzed.

He just really doesn't understand how it works. It would be pointless to try and explain how a manual transmission works and take up 45 mins for nothing. There are a lot to transmissions. When I go to get ASE certified I'm not even gonna bother with transmissions unless one day I shoot to be a master-tech.

And if you fail at first, thats when you hit up the forums saying "Im buying brewskys and some pizza for anyone willing to come over and help me with this"
There are quite a few people who live around him to help out, but it wouldn't be worth it for him to attempt it himself. Think about this ... say he gets it fixed and he gets it done himself. Well thumbs up for him. If he fails and no one can help him, then not only 1, does he have to pay a shop anyway, but now 2, he has to pay to get it towed to the garage. and Towing isnt cheap.

Well just be careful how you put things. I know that kind of irritated me because I know how cool of a guy he is. If he wants to dog his clutch and ride it hard, so be it. Its a honda. Its not unbreakable, but hondas can take quite a beating. Now if I heard his was neutral bombing his benz I would have to take him out back and woop that ass.

Re: burnt clutch?

^^^ well my furry friend, doesn't he have to get the thing towed in the first place? if so why not jack it up yourself and possibly accomplish it, then make a thread on here like "Yeay i did it F you non believers <-----That word is so hard to spell lol.

Just get a cheap OEM one. Stay away from the dealership though.
