The clutch is not being released all the way, or the clutch disk is damaged.- Or in cooler weather, you will have to delay the time that you change gears, as the Transmission Fluid's viscosity is thicker, and the blocker rings/sychronyzers take a little longer to allow a proper shift. If you have ATF in your tranny, then it wouldn't be a problem, but then you will have to start suspecting a bad clutch disk. OR OIL IN TRANSMISSION IS TOO THICK. SOUNDS LIKE THE PROBLEM! DOES IT GET BETTER AFTER CAR GETS HOT? YEP THATS IT, TOO THICK!

How do you adjust the clutch on a 1983 v65 Magna?

It's hydraulic, so there is no adjustment possible. If it is slipping, either change your oil to a different barnd of motorcycle oil, or replace the clutch plates. I have also heard of putting a few ounces of Mavel Mystery Oil in with the oil for a few miles, and then changing the oil. Sometimes this will clean the "crud" off the plates.

Locate and clean the area around the hydraulic clutch hose where it enters the bell housing. Notice the collar around the hose where it enters the bell housing. Use a suitable tool to press the collar down towards the bell housing and hold it down, now you pull/wiggle the hose out. Do not try to pull the hose out until you have depressed the collar first.

How do you bleed the clutch slave cylinder from 1986 Nissan pickup hard body?

BLEEDING THE CLUTCH HYDRAULIC SYSTEM.Fill the master cylinder reservoir with brake fluid.On 1986-88 models that incorporate a clutch damper in the hydraulic system, perform Steps 1-10 for the clutch damper and then move on to the release cylinder.Remove the cap and loosen the bleeder screw on the clutch release cylinder. Cover the hole with your finger.Have an assistant pump the clutch pedal several times. Take your finger off the hole while the pedal is being depressed so that the air in the system can be released. Put your finger back on the hole and release the pedal.After fluid pressure can be felt (with your finger) tighten the bleeder screw.Put a short length of hose over the bleeder screw and place the other end into a jar half full of clean brake fluid.Depress the clutch pedal and loosen the bleeder screw. Allow the fluid to flow into the jar.Tighten the plug and then release the clutch pedal.Repeat Steps 6-7 until no air bubbles are visible in the bleeder tube.When there are no more air bubbles in the system, tighten the plug fully with the pedal depressed. Replace the plastic cap.Fill the master cylinder to the correct level with brake fluid.Check the system for leaks.Follow clutch line from clutch master cylinder,it goes to the clutch damper,then line leaves clutch damper to slave cylinder,its bolted on to side of transmission with 2 bolts,a rubber hose is toward end.

Will grinding stainless steel cause it to rust?

Stainless usually rusts following grinding because of pickup of iron from the grinding wheels. Some aluminum oxide wheels contain traces of iron that contaminate the surface of the stainless and can cause corrosion. So long as you use clean wheels with no trace of iron it shouldn't be a problem.

How do you bleed the master cylinder of a 2002 Saturn SL1?

I have attached the Technical Service Bulletin on bleeding. Bulletin No.: 01-07-31-002B Date: November 01, 2006 INFORMATION Subject: Improved Bleeding Procedure for Hydraulic Clutch Release System Models: 2007 and Prior GM Passenger Cars and Light Duty Trucks (including Saturn) 2007 and Prior Chevrolet and GMC 6-7F T-Series Medium Duty Tilt Cab Models 2007 and Prior Isuzu F-Series Medium Duty Tilt Cab Models 2006-2007 HUMMER H3 Supercede: This bulletin is being revised to add model years. Please discard Corporate Bulletin Number 01-07-31-002A (Section 07 - Transmission/Transaxle). This bulletin is being issued to inform dealers of an improved procedure to aid in the ease of bleeding the clutch hydraulic system for the above listed vehicles. This procedure can be used anytime air is introduced into the hydraulic system. Following this procedure may also reduce the number of unnecessary parts replaced for low clutch pedal reserve and high shift effort. Verify that all the lines and fittings are dry and secure. Clean the dirt and grease from the reservoir cap in order to ensure that no foreign substances enter the system. Remove the reservoir cap. Fill the reservoir to the proper level with the required fluid. Attach the J 43485 (Adapter) to the J 35555 (Mity Vac), or equivalent. Brake fluid will deteriorate the rubber on J 43485. Use a clean shop cloth to wipe away the fluid after each use. Place and hold the adapter on the reservoir filler neck to ensure a tight fit. In some cases, the adapter will fit into the reservoir opening. Apply a vacuum of 51-68 kPa (15-20 hg) and remove the adapter. Refill the reservoir to the proper level. Repeat Steps 6 and 7. If needed, refill the reservoir and continue to pull a vacuum until no more bubbles can be seen in the reservoir or until the fluid level no longer drops. The vehicle will move if started in gear before the Actuator Cylinder is refilled and operational. Start the vehicle the first time in neutral to help prevent personal injury from vehicle movement and see if the transmission will shift easily into gear. Pump the clutch pedal until firm (to refill actuator cylinder). Add additional fluid if needed. Test drive vehicle to ensure proper operation Clutch Bleed Procedure - Read Before Attempting Any Service DO NOT ATTEMPT TO BLEED THE CLUTCH HYDRAULIC UNIT. According to the manufacturer, the hydraulic system (mater cylinder, actuator, hose) is serviced as a COMPLETE UNIT. It has been filled with fluid and bled of air at the factory. If the system requires any fluid, check the hydraulic components for leakage. Remove the slave cylinder from the clutch housing and check for leakage at the piston, a slightly wet surface is normal. If excessive, replace system. Individual components of the system are not available for service, except the slave cylinder actuator pushrod plastic retainer strap. Do not attempt to bleed the clutch hydraulic system. The bleed screw located on the clutch hydraulic slave cylinder is used for the factory fluid fill only. Use only DOT 3 brake fluid. Do not use mineral oil or a paraffin base oil in the hydraulic system as damage to rubber parts will occur. Clean the cap and sides of reservoir before removing cap, then remove diaphragm. Carefully replace diaphragm and cover after filling. Hydraulic Clutch Control System IMPORTANT: The clutch hydraulic system is to be serviced as a COMPLETE UNIT!!!. It is a sealed unit and has been filled with fluid and bled of air at the factory. Individual components of the system are not available for service, except the slave cylinder actuator pushrod plastic retainer strap. Do not attempt to bleed the clutch hydraulic system. The bleed screw located on the clutch hydraulic slave cylinder is used for the factory fluid fill only. WARNING: Do not attempt to bleed the clutch hydraulic unit. Any observed fittings are there for factory use only. The unit comes as a complete pre-bled unit. REMOVAL Block clutch pedal up to prevent pedal from being depressed with slave cylinder removed from transaxle. Remove air induction system. Disconnect negative battery cable from battery. Disconnect positive battery cable from battery Remove hold-down retaining nut and screw, and lift off battery hold-down retainer. Lift the battery of vehicle, and place in a safe location. Remove battery tray bolts and tray. IMPORTANT: One bolt is located in the fender well. NOTICE: Removal of the hydraulic damper with a power tool prior to removal of the actuator could result in breaking off the hydraulic line. IMPORTANT: Prior to removing the slave cylinder from the clutch housing, make sure that the clutch hydraulic system has sufficient fluid. Refer to the "Clutch Hydraulic Fluid Check" procedures in this manual. (This is not necessary if the clutch hydraulic system is being removed to be replaced.) Rotate actuator 1/4 turn counterclockwise while pushing toward housing in order to disengage the bayonet connector and remove from clutch housing. Remove two hydraulic damper to clutch housing nuts and slide damper and bracket assembly off studs. ABS equipped vehicles, remove brake master cylinder-to-booster nuts. NOTICE: ABS equipped vehicles require the brake master cylinder to be moved off booster studs and moved slightly towards the engine to allow removal of the clutch hydraulic master cylinder. Use care not to bend or kink brake lines. Remove clutch master cylinder pushrod retainer clip from clutch pedal pin and disconnect pushrod from pedal. Turn clutch master cylinder approximately 1/8 turn clockwise and remove from dash. Remove hydraulic system from vehicle. INSTALLATION IMPORTANT: When installing a new unit, the plastic retainer straps on the actuator remain in place when installing the unit. This will ensure the actuator rod is seated in the clutch release fork pocket as the actuator is installed. IMPORTANT: When installing an existing unit, a new plastic retainer strap should be installed on the end of the pushrod and the straps should be attached to the actuator. Install clutch master cylinder into dash with reservoir leaning outboard. Turn approximately 1/8 turn counterclockwise to lock in position. On ABS equipped vehicles, place the brake master cylinder back on the booster studs and tighten brake master cylinder-to-booster nuts. Torque:27 N.m (20 ft. lbs.) . Slide damper and bracket onto clutch housing damper studs and install nuts. Torque:25 N.m (18 ft. lbs.) . Install actuator into clutch housing with hydraulic line facing down and rotate actuator 1/4 turn clockwise while pushing toward housing. Add dielectric (silicone) grease to clutch pedal pin then connect pushrod and install pushrod retainer clip to clutch pedal pin. Install battery tray. Torque battery tray bolts. Make sure battery tray is clean. Make sure that the battery cable ends are clean and free of corrosion. (Clean with a wire brush.) Make sure that the battery is in good physical condition (e.g., no cracks, or obvious damage) and that the terminals are clean. Install battery carefully in the battery tray; make sure that the terminals do not short against any metal during the installation. Install battery hold-down retainer, locking the battery into the tray. Install and tighten the hold-down retainer nut and screw. Install the positive battery cable first. Torque:17 N.m (151 inch lbs.) . Install the negative battery cable last. Torque:17 N.m (151 inch lbs.) . Install air induction system.

What is causing the clutch not to stick on your baja DB30?

It's advisable to clean and lube your clutch after every ride or two - depending on the conditions. If you drive a lot of trails/sand/dusty conditions, its best to do it every ride, but if you're mostly on the street every 3-5 times would be fine. Your clutch could be worn out, but you can try to clean and lube it and see if that takes care of it. Otherwise, max-torque and comet clutches are widely available for it. With the engine off, and cooled down: Remove the Clutch Cover Blow out the clutch with compressed air (from an air compressor) Oil the clutch BEARING with a few drops of oil. MAKE SURE OIL DOES NOT GET IN THE CLUTCH Roll the mini bike around to get oil throughout the bearing surface. Install Clutch cover. Try to ride! If that doesn't work, just get a new clutch - should be about $25-30 shipped.

1991 geo storm 1.6l with 5- speed manual just replaced the clutch and release bearing what would cause it not to go into gear when engine is running.?

If the clutch is not completely disengaging you could have problems shifting into gear. The clutch SHOULD disconnect the engine from the transmission, meaning that when the pressure plate backs off the clutch disk the clutch disk should turn freely. A couple potential problems could prevent the clutch disk from completely disengaging or at least turning freely: First possibility, If you didn't adequately clean and re-lube the pilot bushing or glan nut (depending on which you have) the pilot shaft will "drag" a little, causing the shaft to turn. If the shaft receives even a little torque from the engine, you will have trouble shifting. Second possibility, the clutch disk is slightly warped, making it rub against the flywheel or pressure plate. If it's much pressure at all the clutch disk will want to turn resulting in the same problem described above. Third possibility, the hydraulic clutch is in need of a little attention and isn't fully depressing the throwout bearing. Good luck.

How do you change clutch fluid on motorcycle?

there is very little reason to change the fluid in a hydraulic clutch on your motorcycle, but if you do find a reason it is not that hard. remove the side cover that the clutch linkage is under, consult your owners manual. you should see a fluid line coming into the actuator housing. close by there should be a bleeder valve. this is typically used to bleed air from the pressurised system. remove the reservoir cover. open the bleed screw by turning it counter clockwise. gently squeeze the clutch lever catching the oil in a suitable container. observe as you squeeze, the level of oil going down. once empty wipe out reservoir with a clean rag. close the bleeder, refill the reservoir with the proper fluid and bleed the air from the system.
