Question about 2007 Hyundai Accent GS Hatchback

1 Answer

Why does clutch operation deteriorate after 20-30 minutes of driving?

During short distances, the clutch depresses just fine, but when driving for 20-30 minutes or more, the clutch seems to not depress correctly, which makes it super difficult to get into 1st gear. I notice it will only happen during long drives or if I'm going through stop&go traffic for an extended period of time. If I turn off my vehicle during times when it's acting like this, it will need to sit for a few hours before I'm able to successfully start it again. Any suggestions here?

If it's a cable system, I would suspect the cable was frayed. If it uses a hydraulic system, maybe there's air in the line. When the air is heated, the clutch line gets mushy, (much more noticeable when it happens with a brake line). It could need a hydraulic cylinder repair kit too..

Thanks for answering my Question so quickly. Can I still drive my car short distances like 30 km at a time?I'll have the camshaft checked asap.


If the oil light goes off while driving then short distances should be ok. BUT GET IT CHECKED ASAP! It may only need a bit of oil topped up to stop the light coming on

My wife has a Peugot 307 petrol engine. When pulling off from cold, there is a grinding / grating noise. It only occurs when the car is moving and lasts 1 to 2 minutes. Dip the clutch and the noise...


Sticking clutch throw-out bearing arm or linkage/cable, or pedal, so that throw-out bearing is just barely and intermittently touching the throw-out plate of the clutch. Depressing the pedal slightly engages the bearing to the plate causing positive drive of the bearing, quieting the noise. After running a while, the bearing moves sufficient distance to disengage. Next time it happens, with the vehicle stopped, in neutral and with the parking brake set, stick your toes under the clutch pedal and pull it back, see if the noise stops or changes..

On2nd clutch 08 wrangler 1st one replaced @ 9000 mi.s throw out bearing makes noise again


I hope when the first clutch was replaced the throw out bearing was replaced. It sounds like you are either riding the clutch (foot resting on clutch pedal and partially depressing the clutch during normal driving) or the adjustment is incorrect. The throwout bearing should not contact the pressure plate unless the clutch pedal is depressed when adjusted correctly. The constant contact is what wears the bearing out prematurely.

TRY THIS I BET IT'S YOUR PROBLEM

Neutral Safety Switch
  • Put the selector in the park position.
  • Loosen the screws on the neutral safety switch.
  • Remove the switch.
  • Reverse the procedures to complete the installation.
Clutch Start Switch
CAUTION
Before replacing the clutch switch or any component connected to the vehicle's control computer, disconnect the negative cable from the battery.
  • After replacing the switch, slowly work the clutch pedal and note any unusual noises or interferences with pedal movement.
  • If the switch is adjustable, make sure the clutch pedal height and push rod (free) play are correct.
  • Then check the release point of the clutch.
  • Begin by engaging the parking brake and installing wheel chocks.
  • Start the engine and allow it to idle.
  • Without depressing the clutch pedal, slowly shift the shift lever into reverse until the gears contact.
  • Gradually depress the clutch pedal and measure the stroke distance from the point the gear noise stops (this is the release point) up to the full stroke end position.
  • If the distance is not within specifications, check the pedal height, push rod play, and pedal free play.
  • If the distance is correct, check the clearance between the switch and the pedal assembly when the clutch is fully depressed.
