I've just finished the process I used a Hayes manual. (best thing I ever bought to fix a car) it will take your through step by step on how to do it. There are a few quirks that you need to figure out on your own. on my 97 firebird it took me a while to figure out how to disconnect the hydraulic clutch line. Other than that it was pretty smooth.
behind the clutch.....
We need more info here. How do you tell if the clutch has "WHAT" in a Pontiac Sunfire?
you have air in the lines bleed the slave
BAD clutch slave cylinder, wore out clutch and pressure plate.
1. Buy a New clutch and pressure plate 2. Remove gearbox 3. remove old clutch and pressure plate 4. fit new clutch and pressure plate 5. fit gearbox 6. Drive
Make sure clutch, pressure plate, and throw-out bearing are all in alignment
It's an automatic, there is no clutch.
low freon, bad pressure switch, bad compressor clutch.
you don't need to raise the car off the engine cradle at all to change the clutch. i did the whole thing in my driveway
Answer Chevy engines are totally different from Pontiac engines. you'll need an adapter plate to fit it to a Pontiac transmission, assuming you're using the firebird tranny. check www.jegs.com they have the adapter plates there.OK...I don't see where the Pontiac engine comes into play here. In '86 it's a Chevy engine in that Firebird. As far as I know, the flywheel from the 305 will bolt right up to the 350. Use the 305 flywheel, clutch and pressure plate and possibly the starter. Chevy had two different diameter flywheels/flexplates.
Yes I can
The labor to replace a clutch on a 1996 Pontiac Sunfire can range from $670 to $850, depending on where you go. This does not include the cost of the clutch itself, which is roughly $800.
Look for pressure switch on top of accumulator/drier normally at the passenger side firewall - jump this switch with paper clip or ? That should pull clutch in
Clutch, yes. Pressure plate, No.
There is no clutch adjustment. The clutch is hydralic and therefore needs no adjustment. If the clutch isn't working correctly you most likely have to bleed the clutch line.
(Assuming you have a hydrolic clutch system) When you push on the clutch pedal, you create hydrolic pressure in the master and slave cylinders, which in turn pushes on the release bearing (AKA throw-out bearing). The release bearing pushes on the fingers of the pressure plate. This takes pressure off of the clutch disc, putting the car in neutral, in a sense. Now you can change gears without damaging any of the transaxle gears. When you release the clutch, you put pressure back onto the clutch plate and pressure plate, which gives power back to the wheels if you are in 1st-5th gear, or reverse.
Broken clutch cable or clutch pressure plate fork.
1. Air in the hydrulic clutch line 2. Bent aluminum clutch pedal
you first have to drop the transmition. there is one bolt on the transmission support and 4 on the engine . after that you will have to separate the pressure plate from the flywheel and then change the clutch
Need to know what you want to interchange them with.
I assume you mean the clutch pressure plate. If that is what you mean there may not be a cover. On older cars and trucks there is a flywheel cover on the bottom of the bell housing. At any rate to replace the clutch pressure plate you will have to remove the transmission. Then the bell housing to gain access to the clutch plate mounting bolts.
The springs around the clutch plate have probably came out and locked up between the pressure plate and the clutch plate and locked them together. you need to change the clutch plate and have the pressure plate checked for damage.
Replace the clutch pressure switch in your Honda.
clutch pedal over -centre spring pressure
yes hydraulic could cause this also the clutch pressure plate could be collapsed
