new clutch problem???

i just installed a new clutch on my car and now when i drive it slips and im not sure if i just need to give it time for the clutch to break in or if something else is wrong. also i was told i would need to get the flywheel resurfaced and i never did and i dont know if that would make a difference

Re: new clutch problem???

by not resurfacing your flywheel, you basically wasted money on a new clutch. Stop driving it right now and take that trans out, hopefully you can salvage the clutch still..

Re: new clutch problem???

i looked in my haynes manual and it said that it may take like 30-40 starts to seat the clutch and the more i drove it the less it slips and now it doesnt slip at all

Re: new clutch problem???

Do what Zim said. That's like putting on new pads and not getting your rotors turned... The wear pattern on the flywheel matches the disk you pulled off... So when you put the new one on, it's not going to mate up correctly, cause it to wear improperly, and may not grab the way it should...

On that note, it cost me 20 bucks to get mine resurfaced and took less than 30 minutes..

Another thing is you are NOT supposed to get on a new clutch hard for a good 500 miles of city driving and/or lots of stops and starts.....
