  1. HELP!!!!! CLUTCH

    Yep. IT gets a good bite. There is plenty of resistence and then i select first gear and drive off and then I loose pressure. IS it me ... or is this friggin thing possessed. Cheers Paul
  2. HELP!!!!! CLUTCH

    Hi guys, Thanks for the input. I would hate to think that the concentric was faulty. The clutch was fitted exactly the way the old one came out. And bseides f it wasnt, I would not get a clutch at all, which is the annoying part. I get a clutch and keep the clutch pressure if i dont move the car. I mean i could bleed it and it would maintain pressure for as long as the car is sitting idle. It only goes when i move the car....strange or what??? cheers Paul P.S might change it all for a manual clutch.
  3. HELP!!!!! CLUTCH

    HI folks, I am tearing my hair out with this one. I have put in a new clutch and concentric valve cylinder in my 55 plate ford ka Also brand new clutch cylinder behind clutch pedal. I even bought a brand new clutch pipe from gearbox to cylinder from ford. Absolutely everything has been changed on this system. The dilemma is bleeding the clutch. I get clutch pressure after bleeding but as soon as the car moves I loose it. EVERYTIME! I have pressure bled litres of clutch fluid through this system each time I get air out no problem. I I have manual bled it and each time I get air out. But then I loose the clutch pressure as soon as I move off. I have asked the local garage...they said that I have done everything they would have done. I have asked ford...they say I have changed everything out they would have recomended. The both say it should bleed....YOU DONY SAY!!! Any help would really be appreciated on this one Cheers Paul
  4. Any help would be appreciated on this one. I need to bleed the clutch as i fitted a new slave. I have bought an eazi bleed kit . My question is how do I actually bleed this? cheers Paul
  5. Hi again folks. Ok I think I might want to change the clutch out in my 55 plate 1.3 ka. Two questions: do I need to take the engine out of the car or will the box come out from underneath? also do I need to change the concentric slave cylinder when doing the clutch or is it ok to reuse? cheers paul
  6. Whining noise in 5th gear

    Thanks for that. much appreciated
  7. Whining noise in 5th gear

    The gearbox oil do you mean? or both engine and gearbox? So you dont think I need a new gearbox? and if the oil levels are fine what else may make this happen? cheers
  8. Hi folks, need a little brain power on this one. My ford ka which is an 05 plate 1.3 5 speed manual has developed this whine noise only in 5th gear and not all the time. Any ideas before i go and change out the tranny and find I still have the noise? cheers
