If the clutch adjustment is correct, so that the clutch takes halfway through its travel, then it's time for a new clutch pressure plate/clutch plate/throwout bearing combo. One other reason might be grease on the existing clutch plate due to sloppy mechanic assembly.Or a combination of the two. New clutch time!

If it is hydraulic, there is no adjustment, just make sure no air is in the line. If it is cable, then there should be a screw at the clutch lever which will tighten the cable. If the clutch really slips, then, well, plates will have to be replaced.

Why on a 1988 Accord does your clutch slips a little when you give it the gas is it something you can adjust and how?

Usually, a manual transmission clutch slipping is caused either by oil on the clutch from a leaking rear main engine seal, or it's from a worn clutch. Honda clutches are operated with a hydraulic master/slave arrangement and as such are self-adjusting. Whether it's worn clutch or leaking rear main seal, you'll need to remove/replace the engine or transmission to get to the problem.

What is the cause of hard shifting on a 2006 Harley Davidson XL 883 Sportster?

Hard shifting is caused by improper clutch cable adjustment or worn clutch plates. To adjust the clutch cable, loosen the locking nut at the hand grip and turn the adjustment screw outward, away from the end of the handle grip. Tighten the locknut, take the bike for a spin. It will either shift easier or the clutch will slip,(higher revving of the engine without going any faster0. If the clutch slips, back the adjusting screw to a closer position to the end of the handlegrip. If it is hard shifting again, probably the clutch is worn and needs replacing.

This may be due to a faulty clutch. If the vehicle has over 70K on the clutch it is reccomended that it be replaced. If the clutch "slips" or takes a min before it finally engages then i would reccomed replacing the clutch. Make sure to change the Release Bearing and the pilot bearing as well this may also contribute to the problem.

How many miles will a clutch last for on Renault scenic?

If you are driving it correctly, not slipping the clutch or riding it, the clutch will last for 100,000 miles or more. Slipping means you are not allowing the clutch to fully engage smoothly. In other words revving the engine and trying to ease the clutch on. Practice will cure this. Riding it means keeping your foot on the clutch pedall all the time so that it slips even at speed.

If your clutch was about to go would it be normal for the accelerator to make shuddering noises then die out completely or is it all related to the clutch or what are the symptoms of a dead clutch?

2 symptoms depending on what has worn: 1. The clutch itself. Engine revs under high load, the clutch slips. Take off in 2nd gear, let clutch right out and hit accelerator. 2. The disengage point sinks lower and lower. If you have a hydraulic clutch, a seal is leaking.

What is clutch drag?

Source Q: What causes my clutch to stick or drag? A: There is no single cause of a sticking clutch. Some more common reasons for a sticking clutch are:- Clutch controls are improperly adjusted. Clutch cable is collapsing.- Clutch spring tension is to tight, spring binding.- Too heavy an oil has been used in the clutch. A thick viscosity oil can cause the plates to stick, especially when cold.- Clutch oil is 'worn out' or burnt. The oil has been in the clutch to long, clutch plate wear is excessive causing slippage, or a driving style that slips the clutch. Changing the oil in a clutch often improves the situation.- Clutch plates are warped. Friction plates or metal plates may be warped.- Improper adjustment on primary drive chain/belt.Hope This Helps.
