it may bind when using the clutch, it will squeal when not using the clutch, and stop when you do. You may also feel or hear a constant grinding like noise, this is the bearings going bad.
Slipping of the clutch and a peculiar smell are the first signs of a clutch that is worn out.
When fluid leaks out the back side where the plunger goes in, it is going out. Fluid would be seen from inside the cab, up above the clutch pedal.
If you clutch and it either goes all the way in with no pressure there is a leak in your slave cylinder or the higher you have to clutch means your clutch is sliping and has to be replaced. If your doing a lot of power shifting i would suggest you get a racing clutch instead.
I need to replace release bearing in a 1995 Chevy s10 truck and need to know how to disconnect the hydraulic clutch line for the transmission.
You have to look at the wear on the clutch and look for cracks. If the clutch does go out, the shifter will still move everywhere, but the transmission will not shift.
When you let the clutch out all the way, if it continues to slip, it's worn out. A slipping clutch indicates that the clutch wear surface has gone. Plan on replacing the clutch disk, pressure plate, throwout bearing and have the flywheel resurfaced. While it's apart, it wouldn't be a bad idea to replace the clutch master and slave cylinders as well. If the clutch will not release when you press the pedal, it could be a warped clutch disk or pressure plate or a faulty hydraulic clutch system (master cylinder/slave cylinder).
Properly operated the clutch should last at least three or five years of normal driving without servicing being necessary. If a driver often "rides" the clutch, that is keeps his foot on it, then the main clutch bearing will deteriorate faster. When it becomes difficult to engage the clutch and change gears, for example it does not disengage until you step on it all the way to the floor, then the clutch should be inspected and the parts replaced as necessary.
That seems suspiciously as though the clutch is not disengaging. Perhaps a problem with the hydraulic clutch or possibly a damaged clutch plate that is causing the pressure plate to turn even when the clutch is supposedly disengaged. It is also possible that the pilot bearing has siezed.
The clutch will slip in higher gears first. Cruise about 40 mph in 4th gear and step on it, if the rpm's go up more then the speed your clutch is going
You will smell it burning and your engine will slip as you pull away in first gear and while going uphill.
