Clutch slipping

Post by Doug G » Wed Sep 26, 2012 0:44

How does one stop the clutch (a new one) slipping ?

Great pull away but slips when accellerating in 3rd and 4th. :o

Do you happen to notice a drop of oil hanging from the "cotter pin of doom" located at the bottom of the clutch housing?

There is a fair amount of 'oil' underneath the engine compartment (nearer the LEFT front wheel) when viewed on the morning after parking overnight.

I suspect that it is from an aging gasket from the engine and not the clutch housing.

Could you explain a bit more about the "cotter pin of doom" ?

It's a split pin that dangles from the bottom of the clutch housing. It's there to give you an indication of the main seal leaking. (and getting on the clutch plate) When you see a drip of oil hanging from the pin, it could be trouble.
But, you mentioned that it was a new clutch. Did the shop also surface the pressure plate at the same time? If so, there's some "ears" that need machining.

I will look again for oil (and see if there is a split pin there :D ).

I doubt very much that the installers of my clutch machined any 'ears' etc.

Could this be the cause of the clutch slipping at certain revs?
