CbNewbie is cool... so far.
Question Newb Tranny Question. Please help!

Still new to the whole car thing. My 1990 LX clutch was replaced ~500 miles ago and anytime the car is "operating temp" it starts to slip. Dad thinks the pressure plate isn't on correctly but the dude didn't put on the new T/O bearing that came included with the kit (MS,SS,Clutch). Am I going to have to take the trans out, and re-do the clutch? Already put fresh oil in trans, adjusted clutch and have babied it.
Again, slips at operating temp, or if I start in 2nd a few times.

Thanks!

The pressure place will only go on one way. there are pegs that make sure its on right. maybe it was not tightened all of the way? if your clutch works and you cant hear the throw out bearing then its fine. if you take the starter off you might be able to see the 10mm bolts that holt the pressure plate on and make sure they are tight

Was the flywheel replaced, or at least resurfaced, when the clutch was replaced?

If the throwout bearing wasn’t replaced, that’s bad. A new oem bearing should always be used. If that seizes, everything in the general clutch area will be toast. I learned that one the hard way!

The symptoms match a worn clutch that's for sure. But this also could be a clutch adjustment issue. Where is the catch point for the clutch pedal?

If the flywheel wasn’t replaced or resurfaced, I’m thinking glazed friction surfaces.

That I'm not sure about. But it was a full kit.

“Full kit” means nothing. What was included? Did you order it online? Link?

Catch point is pretty normal, grabs about midway up.

Was the flywheel replaced, or at least resurfaced, when the clutch was replaced? - To my knowledge it wasn't replaced/resurfaced. Clutch was replaced three months ago

How much did you adjust the clutch pedal? It might just be a tad too far out.

Or..were there any oil leaks upon the clutch replacement? Could be oil getting
onto the flywheel from the rear main seal leaking causing the slip.

I wasn't the one who did it, the guy I just recently bought it from did it himself. however this is a CONSISTENT fluid showing up after driving on the trans:


(Ignore whatever wiring job this man did, The car cost me $400 + $16 For shift linkage )

I don’t think google drive images work, unfortunately.

If the flywheel wasn’t replaced or resurfaced, then your clutch disc is very likely ruined. Doing that will glaze the friction surfaces.

The transmission is closed, so there should be no fluid leaking from it. If there is, something isn’t sealed correctly. To do the clutch, the drain plug would’ve been pulled, as well as the axles. Nothing else leading to fluid should’ve been touched.

It sounds like the guy that did your clutch is about 12 eggs short of a dozen.

Okay. Thank you for your help. Bought the car for $400 and it runs and drives better now that its colder. I'm going to try and put it off for a little bit so i can get some money together. Thanks again!

update to a dead thread.
I looked under the clutch pedal and the nut/bolt were backwards.
I also spun the 'adjuster' to make a lower clutch point and I only have issues if i drive for about an hour or so and put it in 5th with the foot to the floor.
Next weekend the plans to take it out have a new flywheel just in case but replace the T/O bearing anyways because guy didn't do it.
Thanks for everyone who helped chipped ideas on what it was but im guessing maybe the catch point was way too high.

Weird. The pedal shouldn’t need to be adjusted in most cases. Unless your guy fiddled with it. Glad you found at least a partial fix!

If the clutch isn’t slipping or acting weird, then you may be good. Changing the throwout bearing is definitely smart, but you can probably leave the clutch assembly alone if you think it’s working well. Might want to double check the torque of the bolts on the pressure plate, though. Any mechanic that wouldn’t install a new throwout bearing probably doesn’t bother using a torque wrench either.

Hey I couldn't ever see that pic of whatever was dripping on from the trans..
but it sounds like if you drive about an hour & it starts to slip & you have
fluids leaking...I would bet that you rear main seal is leaking.

Especially since you say after about an hour of driving it slips.

Change that seal please if you pull the trans. You will be very thankful
since it sounds like the guy before you didn't do such a great job on the
clutch replacement or whatever he did.
