According to the OP's last comment, the rattle was due to a broken crankshaft. I will add one thing though. When I was a kid, my father had a '91 Mitsubishi Pajero that suddenly had its crankshaft snap in two. He was able to drive it to the dealership with a rattling noise that was present regardless of clutch position or RPM. With regards to the OP's ...

This can be made to work well. As a teenager I tried the technique seen from Mad Max, with an old rear wheel drive car. While travelling forward at speed, press the clutch fully in, allow the engine revs to drop so no load on gears. Then change into reverse, raise the revs to a high level (thinking nearly red-line) and dump the clutch. As long as you keep ...

Yes and no. Yes the engine would in theory be forced to rotate in reverse. No in practice because the extreme torque shock would simply strip the clutch shaft splines or even completely screw the shaft in two. Please don't try this at home...

A High School auto shop teacher about 35 years as an experiment on a old shop car managed to do precisely that. Got the old car to 60+ MPH and slammed into reverse--suffice it to say it was not pretty. Idler shaft milled like a lathe, the gears....you don't wanna know...LOL

If it is a slipping clutch it will get worse soon, and you will know for sure, from your description, yes it is slipping. Yours is a FWD car, they are a bit more difficult than a RWD most of the time, you will need an engine support bar to hold the engine while you remove the transmission, after the trans is out this support bar will suspend the engine so ...

You can ride it up but not hard at all That spider spring works in conjunction with the ramps in the rear to all the clutch to slip under engine breaking that exceeds the redline of the bike. So you won't want to be downshifting from 5th redline to 2nd gear until you get this fixed. You are very lucky the spring losing it's two arms didn't do more damage. ...

Let's put it this way. You burned your clutch. If your clutch got stuck, you could just take it back and may be get it fixed under warranty, because it would be engagement mechanism, not the clutch disk. But by doing this: "Rev counter maxes out and car goes no where until pedal comes back up!" you burned your clutch, and most likely flywheel as well, so ...

The fact that you stalled the car uphill and that it is acting that have most likely nothing in common. Gear knob vibration is quite normal on older cars. Also, when car is on low RPM under load, vibrations tend to be more prominent in manual transmission cars. Start with driving the car on the flat surface to see if it's accelerating as expected. If the ...

My theory is that the engine would be forced to rotate the other way around, wouldn't it? Then, because of that, the engine would stop, and therefore it will "generate" a lot of force to the transmission and cause the car to reduce speed (all of this, if nothing breaks, of course) Put simply, in most cases, the motor will stall and the tires will lock. ...

It's fine I did a similar job on a 2003 model recently. I kid car. Luckily, I didn't have any bent valves to deal with. Turning the engine over with the head off and the car in gear won't hurt anything. I know the exact feeling of elasticity you are talking about if you have the car in gear. I am assuming you had the front wheels on the ground when you ...

The noise goes away if I add a little gas or depress the clutch This is a classic symptom of a bad throwout bearing.

Sounds like it's possibly involved with the transmission and/or clutch. But first, I would check all the heat shielding on the car to make sure that's not a factor. When the transmission is engaged (when the clutch is not depressed) it can cause some NVH (noise, vibration, harshness) that will cause nearby heat shields to rattle and make it sound like a ...

I'm going to expand on rpmerf's answer, where he has disambiguated between Heel and toe and clutchless shifting. I'l briefly explain the driving technique only to better illustrate what it hopes to mechanically achieve. And so, please excuse me if get the nuance of the technique wrong. Here's an image of a gearbox. I couldn't find a one with synchromesh, ...

If you released your clutch too quickly, that is almost definitely the dog teeth in the transmission hitting each other while engaging. This happens and is clearly heard in smaller front wheel drives. (I first noticed it on a VW Polo).It is not a pleasant sound to hear. If your car is working fine with no noises, then there is nothing to worry about but I'd ...

These could be seperate issues all together perhaps, the clutch does sound interesting, you might have missed something in the process of changing you're clutch? Also don't forget (I think) about the clutch slave (Not sure if VW beetles have one.. but I'd assume most if not all manual cars do).. Just check it over, making sure that everything is in its ...

Attributes of Exhaust (Jake brake) and Compression Brakes Compression (Jake) Brake Jake brakes slow a vehicle by releasing pressure Jake brakes are operated at the valve train. Jake brakes open the exhaust valve at the top of the compression stroke. Jake brakes use the compression of the compression stroke to provide gas compression resistance to slow the ...

What about the Clutch Master Cylinder? It worked for me on a Pt Cruiser after I replaced the clutch and a few sensors with no luck.

Dual mass flywheels are susceptible to high energy loads, heavy acceleration and deceleration , towing does not help either, smooth driving and avoid towing where possible , this driving style will add considerably to life of the dual mass. The real reason for dual mass is simply to add additional revenue to manufacturer supported workshops, since the ...

Seems like the clutch is out of adjustment If I am not mistaken your bike has a clutch cable and does not have a hydraulic self adjusting clutch mechanism. I've included some clutch maintenance tasks for you regarding adjustment and lubrication. When your clutch is out of adjustment you get the symptoms you describe. Also, you may want to check your idle ...
