Gday fellas

Just some Q's about my manual trans seeing as its the first proper manual ive had i cant tell what is actually going.

Driving giving it a bit going from 1st to 2nd engine revs alot then slowly creeps into gear same with 3rd im assuming the clutch is giving out?

Going from 1st to second unless it gets to 2000rpm the car will shudder as if its about to stall

Also when dropping from 3rd to 2nd its dosnt feel as if its gripping alot and gives of a grinding sound

Please tell me its just the clutch and not the flywheel or worse, gearbox :(

Sounds like the clutch, just find a moderate hill, shift into 4th gear and accelerate hard. If the clutch is slipping, the revs will rise although the car will not really go anywhere.

When the clutch is replaced, the flywheel will be machined anyhow, although depending on the condition may need replacement.

, its not that hard to do if you have a little mechanical knowledge or have a friend who can...OR Yep, pretty much. Just take the old flywheel out and machine.OUCH, unlucky mate the getrags are expensive when you do the clutch. it cost my mate $900( THATS CHEAP) to replace the clutch and flywheel is his vs ute, luckily mines fine atm touch wood, It is so expensive cause the flywheel alsohas to be replaced or machined (possibly), not sure if a T5 clutch will fit it but im thinking it wont

I probably could do it myself if i found a tutorial on how to do it, but i think id rather pay someone else to do it to make sure it gets done properly
