Well at least nn a car, you need a clutch because the engine spins all the time and the car wheels don't. In order for a car to stop without killing the engine, the wheels need to be disconnected from the engine somehow. The clutch allows us to smoothly engage a spinning engine to a non-spinning transmission by controlling the slippage between them...

Yes. A F1 car has a clutch. It is not like a normal clutch that you see in a normal road car. In a normal car when you use the clutch, the engine power does not get transferred to the flywheel and propel the car whereas in a F1 car even when the clutch is used the power gets transferred to propel the car.

so that the driver of a manual car can change gear without stalling

To prevent the car from stalling

i need chage the clutch of my car

Hi, i guess you were meaning "clutch". The clutch pedal in a manual car is situated on the left-side of the break pedal. It is pressed down when shifting gears.

yes it will. use motorcycle oil only

no because you need the clutch to start and stop the car

if there is a clutch adjustment on car, adjust the clutch if no adjustment, you will shortly need to replace the clutch

No, the throw out bearing in a clutch is needed to keep an disengaged clutch spinning. you can drive a car with a bad throwout bearing if you don't use the clutch By "floating the gears". You must disconnect or bypass the start safety switch (this is when you need to have the clutch pedal to the floor to start the moter) so that you can start the car in gear if you come to a complete stop.

A 2 stroke engine with a wet clutch should use 70weight oil. It is really called gear or manual transmission type oil as the gears are also using this oil. Yes you can use car oil in a 4 stoke bike with a wet clutch but try to find oil that has as little additives as possible.

low or out of fluid (new car) classic car linkage may have broken

The clutch of a car is located on the left foot side of the bar. The brake is in the middle and the accelerator is on the right.

Clutch is the left foot pedal in European cars.

The clutch is probably too used

No. You will stall(or cut-out). This means that the car shuts down and then you have to clutch in and put it into neutral. Then(still on the clutch) turn on the car again.

It might be your clutch slave cylinder, It is underneath your car and is only about twelve bucks for a new one.

I had a lot of trouble fitting the new clutch cable to my car.

The driver applies or releases pressure on the clutch to move the car a little or to hold the car in one place on a hill. It's called slipping because the clutch plate slips against the flywheel. This is not good for the clutch.

With a little practice you can start a vehicle in 1st gear and shift gears without the use of a clutch. This would be only to get you safely home or to a garage.

The clutch won't go into gear while the car is turned on but it will went the car is turned off

A car is in gear when the clutch is engaged on the transmission

Use a motorcycle specific oil. Designed for a wet clutch. Go to a Honda dealership and purchase their GN-4 oil. 10-w40. Do NOT use car oil. It will ruin your clutch.

If the car judders as it pulls away but the problem goes away after a while the discs are contaminated with water.If the car judders as it pulls away always, its contaminated with oil, suspect a leaking engine seal/gland.if the car overrevs as it pulls away and there is a burning smell, the clutch is burnt out.If the car is in gear but doesnt pull away. The clutch is burnt out.If the car is a manual shift and it creeps if thebrake is off and the car is in gear and the clutch is engaged. Check the clutch adjustment.

A clutch does not go into gear. A clutch engages, Normally if a clutch fails to engage it is because it is worn. with a worn out clutch you are able to start the car in gear without your foot on the clutch and the car wont move. Normally before this happens you will notice what is known as a slipping clutch. A slipping clutch means that the engine is turning faster than it should to keep the car moving while in gear. once this starts to happen it does not take long for the whole show to come to a stand still.
