Unhappy '92 Eclipse clutch

I am changing the clutch in my '92 Eclipse. Anyone had experience with this that you could share, or any tips?? I have never done this before.

Change the disc, pressure plate, and throwout bearing when you do the job. Have the flywheel resurfaced.

Check autolibrary.org for some R&R information.

Possible transmission problem. What were the initial symptoms that led you to r&r the clutch?

I r&r the clutch because it was slipping and I could hear a grinding noise while the clutch was engaged, but it was only in the first 2 gears, 3rd was ok, but would slip occasionally and it always slipped out of 4th gear so I had to go from 3rd to 5th. reverse was fine but after clutch r&r I have no reverse, still will not hold 4th, grinding noise still there, but no slippage.

Likely internal tranny problems, such as a bad synchro or other internal failure.

Did you have the flywheel resurfaced? Mileage?

Can't tell much by looking---the flywheel should be resurfaced.

Sounds like internal failure inside--makes sense at the mileage you are at.

Had to chime in there. "like new" would be 20,000 original miles. 160k is not like new. you Should ALWAYS resurface the flywheel, especially after 160k

I come from a 5.0 mustang backround, but the theory is all the same.

I just purchased a second mustang and second gear is out, it pops out. When the tranny went out in my other stang, second gear grinds.

I agree with Joe that you almost certainly have internal tranny problems.

Is your clutch adjusted properly?? Check your clutch adj. Sometimes this can cause massive problems.

This time, resurface your flywheel. Good luck!

Sorry man but I doubt the problem is the clutch. There is a very small chance it the linkage but more than likely it an internal tranny problem
