Anytime a problem occurs after a new clutch is installed, I run through the following:
-Do I know for a fact that I installed the clutch disc facing the right way?
-Did I properly torque flywheel bolts (if I removed the flywheel?)
-Did I install and torque Pressure Plate to spec?
-Did I clean/replace Throw Out Bearing?
-Did I check clutch fork for signs of wear (replacing if necessary) and adjust/reinstall correctly?
-Do I have adequate fluid for Clutch Slave, and did I bleed properly?
is the pedal engagement within spec?
-Did I reinstall clutch cable to spec?

I'd pretty much start with the easiest things (like clutch cable engagement, verifying adequate slave fluid and bleeding if necessary, checking/verifying pedal engagement) and if the problem persists, move to the more technical inspections. No point in guessing, might as well go through the list.

I seriously doubt you messed around with the shifter linkage engagement, but it's worth having a look at. Also I would hope you did not contaminate the clutch disk with any oil. Hope you find it to be an easy fix.

Default Re: New Clutch Car Barely moves

ok i made sure its bled correctly today and i also noticed that the fork arm was moving a good inch to two inches so i believe that is adequate to engage and disengage the clutch? i really am not looking forward to pulling this all back apart. lol getting a bit burnt out by all that i have been doing to this car. just want to drive it hehe... I didnt myself put the new clutch in but it is a spec stage 4 clutch. when i push in and put it in any gear it moves just barely a little and then nothing like its barely engaging... hope this new info is more helpful so your able to assist me more thanks all

Was the pressure plate resurfaced? If so were the standoffs also ground to set the correct height (.827" +/-.002") from the face to the standoff?

No its a new pressure plate as well as new clutch so no resurfaceing needed. throw out bearing is new . like i said the fork is moving a good distance so i would think it would be enough to engage but just not quite just barely moves in any gear.

I bled the system again until i didnt hear any air and was getting fluid and clutch pedal feels good. I looked at the manual but I have never done a clutch before so im not the most confident about getting under there and pulling it all apart... guess if i cant figure something out soon im gonna have to bite the bullet and have it towed to a tranny shop.

was the flywheel resurfaced? its a stepped flywheel and if the machine shop doesnt take the same amount off both the friction surface and the mounting steps the clutch wont grab properly and slip.

That sounds like the disk must be on backwards or one of the other parts is out of spec. One more thing to try is the pedal adjustment but beyond that it sounds like it's time to pull the transaxle and see what's wrong.

Or (heaven forbid) the VCU is burnt up for some reason. You do have the tcase installed correct? My car wouldn't even attempt to move without the tcase hooked up.

Does the car nudge forward or backward in the slightest amount when you try to move?
