need help

Post by 97sohc10 » Sun May 01, 2011 11:17 am

ok so i got a 97 sohc mtx and when i go to put in reverse it grinds like hell never did it before but its also a little hard going into 1-5 too unless i hold the clutch down for a while. what i wanna know is if i should invest in a clutch or do i have bigger problems?

Make sure your car is not rolling forward OR Backward while putting it into reverse.

My reverse will grind under 2 circumstances:
1. Rolling while putting it in reverse.
2. Or not fully engaging reverse.

Might be time to replace your clutch.
Mines got 135k miles on it, I have the same clucth in my car that came in the car in 1997 but I plan on using a PT clutch when I replace it.

whats the big difference in the clutches besides a slight price and what do you order them for cause thats what i was thinking of doing is ordering a pt clutch mines only a sohc does that make a difference?

I think the PT cruise clutch will handle a little more power.

New clutch cable? Unless you can adjust it... It should be self adjusting though...
