clutch dying?

how can you tell if your clutch is about to go, or if you just need it readjusted, mine is acting wierd, not shifting right.

Re: clutch dying?

Umm you dont adjust our clutches..... On some cars you have a cable clutch that can be tightened but in our case its hydrolic. And your going to have to be more specific about your question... having trouble shifting? are you noticing a "slip" under pedal or acceleration.
A slipping clutch is just as it sounds, the clutch no longer has the gripping or clamp capacity to remain engaged to the flywheel under high stress conditions and will worsen with time and more slippage. Just has mentioned before a cluctj slip will be when you apply power and exceed the now low limits of the clutch. The rpms will jump up usually in a slower manner then a rev and continue to do so untill you release the gas and return the power to with in the clucthes grasp. You will first notice a slipping clucth usually when you are travvling up hill in a higher then normal gear and applying more then needed power, when hauling things, or when applying heavy acceleration. The more the clutch slips the worse it will get and the easier it will slip from then on.

Re: clutch dying?

Another issue if youre having shifting problems may be low fluid which is not disengagin the pressure plate all the way and giving you some trouble putting it in gear. Is that the case or are you experiencing slipping as described above?

I hope your talking about low slave cyl fluid and not low tranny fluid. Yes low tranny fluid will cause harder shifting but it has absolutly nothing at all to do with the pressure plate....

Re: clutch dying?

well does it consistently grab high, when you release the clutch or sometimes.

Re: clutch dying?

one good way to tell is if your pedal starts falling to the floor. Has it ever fallen to the floor and you have to bleed the system to get the pedal back to it's original state? This will happen because fluid is needed to help take up the extra effort needed to actually shift...

The ting about hydrolic clutch systems is you cant really "feel" how much clutch you have left very well. The hydrolic system makes the clutch feel the same all the time, so you pedal will release at the same spot everytime. If you not experiencing slippage in the clutch your fine. Now with cable style clutch release systems you can better feel as a clutch starts to wear out and your pedal starts to release more towards the top.

Now your system more then likley does NOT need to be blead if your pedal is still feeling stout. HOWEVER our ludes are notorious for leaking our clutch fluid behin the fire wall by the SLAVE CYLINDER. The rings in your SLAVE CYLINDER start to go bad and the the fluid bleeds back from the pressure when you depress the pedal. So take a fast peek and see if your leeking, but if your fluid was fine to begin with im 90% sure your fine. But you siad you checked the fluid so im assuming you didnt need to fill it? if it was very low and you needed to fill it then you may need to bleed the system and you may have a leek....

But your going to have to give us some symptoms in order for us to help. From the sounds of it i think you might just be paranoid; unless somthing is actually happening to your cxar and your not just curious how mutch clutch you have left.

Re: clutch dying?

ummmmmmm no there is a master brake AND a master clutch (if you have a manual) there is no master clutch in an auto. there is also in some cases a brake booster

you dont fill your slave cylinder

number 8 is your master and number 11 is your slave. need any more proof

Re: clutch dying?

That's all fine and dandy but when your talking outright u say check your slave cylinders fluid. Saying check you master clucth cylinder to make sure ur slave sylinder is bla bla bla is kinda like saying "h" "t" "t" "p" ":" "\" "\" "w" "w" "w" "." Before every website you tell ur buddies to visit..
Its just ease of comunication a simplification of terms. Especially since we are talking about the transmission and clutch in general as a diagnosis.
Now if you are ordering parts and talking about your hydrolic system specificly and not just the tranny in general as we are doing here AND are anal retentive then by all means master clutch cylinder bla bla bla...

Re: clutch dying?

all i did was correct you, because you were wrong, chill out.


so if you are telling someone to check your slave fluid and they go to look at it then they will be like WTF. how are you supposed to check it. so if you are talking to someone who doesnt know alot about cars.(not saying the OP doesnt) then you be specific. and also you were wrong. just admit it


to the OP.... maybe you should try to adjust the clutch pedal

Re: clutch dying?

you can adjust it behind your pedal. there is a pin you pull out to allow you to spin the screw.
