car   Clutch Bell Housing problem of Chrysler Pt Cruiser

The vehicle involved is a 2005 Chrysler Pt Cruiser convertible. With only 21,000 miles my 2005 Pt Cruiser convertible base model experienced a failure of the manual clutch assembly. I had driven about 100 miles of open highway and was entering a more urban setting with frequent stops and starts due to traffic lights. After about the 5th or 6th light my gear shift lever would move but the car would not go into any gear. Luckily I had roadside assistance and was able to have the vehicle towed to a Chrysler dealership in savannah GA. It took 3 days to complete the repairs because the entire clutch assembly and housing had to be replaced. Although a manual clutch is classed as a "consumable" part Chrysler agreed to sharing half the replacement cost for the parts due to a mechanical failure. I drove my first Pt Cruiser ( an early production 2001 model ) over 86,000 miles and never had a clutch problem. I am now 18,000 miles into the life of the replacement clutch with no signs of any problems. This issue happened on Saturday, Aug. 13, 2005.

car   Clutch Bell Housing problem of Dodge Ram 2500

The car was a 2005 Dodge 2500. Excessive vibration since purchases truck new in 2005. Replaced serpentine belt 5 times and tensioner pulley 2 times, which is about every 30k miles. Chrysler agreed to pay for the last belt and pulley acknowledging something was wrong causing the issue. The issue was not known until recently. The vibration over a long period of time caused several bolts/mounts to work loose and allowed parts to shift. The cooling fan shifted into the radiator breaking the fan blades and busting the radiator. The radiator, fan assembly and fan had to be changed. During these repairs the vibration source was found. The flywheel was bad. Changed flywheel, clutch and throw out bearing. The bearing in the flywheel was bad and causing slack which caused the vibration. The excessive vibration also caused a 5" crack in the bell housing and broke the exhaust pipe in two. Muffler shop said they have never seen a break in the exhaust like this. Chrysler is saying all of these items are normal wear and tear, disregarding the fact that earlier Chrysler agreed to replace a serpentine belt and tensioner pulley. Ujoints in the same vehicle have been changed multiple times. Very poor headlights. So bad it is a safety issue not allowing the driver to adequately see in front of the vehicle while driving during the night. It was 05/01/2012 when this clutch bell housing issue happened.

car   Clutch Bell Housing problem of Dodge Grand Caravan

The car involved is a 2012 Dodge Grand Caravan. The VIN of this vehicle was 2C4RDGBG3C_. I noticed a fluid leak in my driveway and based on the red color I eliminated the possibility that it was from the power steering because the reservoir was at the max level. I was later informed that the transmission side cover was leaking. I sent the vehicle to the dealer where dye was added and was informed that fluid was leaking in the area of the bell housing and the transmission would require disassembly to ascertain what the cause is. It was 11/01/11 when this clutch bell housing issue occurred.

car   Clutch Bell Housing problem of Hyundai Tiburon

The vehicle involved is a 2003 Hyundai Tiburon. I bought a 2003 Tiburon 6/15/05, for $14,000 8/27/05 started making grinding noises, smoking,sounded like engine blew up. Towed to romero motors, ontario, closest Hyundai dealer. I had original warranty & extended warranty. Romero motors said replace clutch $1,400. I could not afford it & took to my mechanic. Opening engine hood there were metal shavings all over engine, and it cut tranny case in half. I called claremont Ford/Mazda (purchased car there)and was instructed to bring it to them. They towed it to romero motors. I called claremont Ford/Mazda and was advised to call romero motors. Again, I was told by romero motors it was clutch wear n tear item & clutch took out transmission/no coverage under warranty. New estimate $3,400. 00, and to my horror charged $818 tear down fee to put car back together. I again took it to my mechanic, purchased $920 in parts to fix problem paid my mechanic to fix. 100% Hyundai parts. It ran a week and gears went out, this time I took it to a different dealership, glendora Hyundai, where I had bought parts they gave me estimate of $2,700 gear shift installed backwards tearing up transmission again. I have known this mechanic for 24 years and he told me he put the shifter in exactly the way he took it out. Glendora Hyundai said that they received numerous complaints about romero motors all the time, that romero's mechanics had probably just thrown my car back together, not bothering to put everything where it belonged, broken parts were left on front seat. So it was very possible that the gearshift was in backwards. This car cost me $4,700, was down from 8/27/05 until one week ago. I have pictures of the clutch and tranny case showing damage, close to sawing into passenger compartment. I filed a complaint with the bar and they cited romero motors. My life has been one big nightmare since 8/27, now I'm finding out this is hydraulic problem and will happen every 5,000 to 10,000 miles. 8jb. It was Aug. 27, 2005 when this clutch bell housing issue occurred.

car   Clutch Bell Housing problem of Mitsubishi Montero Sport

The vehicle involved is a 2000 Mitsubishi Montero Sport. Initially there was a rattling sound when the gear selector was pushed a certain way. The Mitsubishi tech's would not even look at the problem till I figured out how to reproduce the noise for them. Then on long trips the a/t lamp would come on. I would pull over and let the engine cool the proceed until the next a/t incident. Some of the problem was caused by the transmission having bolt heads rattling around inside the trans housing. Other problems were caused by porosity of the trans bell housing leaking trans fluid. Mitsubishi 'fixed' the leaks and bolts rattling around inside the trans, but now on trips of 100 miles or so when you accelerate from a stop during the rev up to shifting around the 2nd to 3rd gear shift the tach will indicate a high rev then fall back when the shift is accomplished by the trans. The vehicle will 'buck' in response to this shifting anomaly. This effect will not happen unless the engine has been running for an hour or so. I now no long take this vehicle on long trips unless compelled to do so. This clutch bell housing problem happened on Sat., Jan. 1, 2005.

The vehicle having this issue was a 2005 Saturn Vue. VIN of the vehicle was 5GZCZ23D45_. On July 23, 2005, I had the oil seal replaced. The Vue had been leaking oil in my garage and other places when I parked. I had to replace the ignition switch on two occasions and was almost unable to get the key to turn. Sometimes took up to 20 minutes or so. On July 22, 2006 I had the air conditioning condenser and seal replaced. It was over 100 degrees. I had to get a rental for this repair. This took several days because the mechanic took my car apart, thought it was repaired, but was not, I was told. Second day of car rental, I was told they ordered the part, but they "sent the wrong part". Finally, on the third day, I was told that the car had to be taken apart again to be repaired. I rented a car for three days. On August 6, 2006, I went to leave to pick up my son, the Vue was in my garage and there was no clutch. I had to call Saturn roadside assistance and have my car towed to Saturn of henderson. On August 7, 2006, I had the clutch cylinder, concentric slave replaced. On Monday, December 18, 2006, I was taking my son to the airport to be with his father for the christmas holiday in michigan. I was attempting to back out of the garage, but could not put the vehicle into reverse. We pushed the car out of the garage. I drove very carefully (a bit concerned thinking it may breakdown) because I was concerned about the possible dangers involved, but had to get my son to the airport on time. I pulled off of the 215 when at that off ramp, all of my gears were suddenly gone. The cables snapped inside and I could not go anywhere, causing me to once again, call Saturn roadside assistance, have the 2005 vehicle towed away again, my son missed his flight to michigan and I had to miss part of a work day and again rent another car. This clutch bell housing issue occurred Jul. 22, 2005.

car   Clutch Bell Housing problem of Toyota 4runner

The vehicle involved is a 1999 Toyota 4runner. Rear axle housing develops premature and detrimental metal scaling and rust, causing differential bell housing to leak gear oil. This problem has been reported on a significant number of 1999 through 2002 4runners in a consistent manner and pattern. Toyota motors has failed to acknowledge or research the problem and uses the defense that these vehicles are outside of warranty period. However, a consistent pattern of quality in this particular problem should warrant an investigation by NHTSA as Toyota has been shown to hide and distort claims by their loyal customer in order to cover up these types of problems. This issue happened on Wednesday, September 14, 2011.. Read more...

car   Clutch Bell Housing problem of Toyota Tundra

I have a 2005 Toyota Tundra, sr5 access cab, 6-cyl and a 6-speed manual transmission. In Feb 2007 the throwout bearing started to go bad at approx. 30,000 miles (vehicle was about 8 months old) and the dealer replaced the entire clutch under warranty. About a year later the throwout bearing went out again, with about 65,000 miles on the vehicle. The dealer again replaced the entire clutch under warranty and also replaced the bell housing, stating that the bell housing was defective and was the cause of the problem. Now the vehicle has about 82,000 miles on it, is 5 years old, and the throwout bearing is again making noises, indicating that the clutch is going out again. This is not normal for a clutch to wear out 3 times in 5 years. I do mostly highway driving on flat roads and do not tow anything. The truck is now out of warranty and the clutch replacement costs quite a bit. I strongly believe that something else is the cause of the clutch repeatedly going out. Not many Tundras with this transmission ever came out and I believe that there is some kind of parts or design flaw that is causing this problem. It was Feb. 15, 2007 when this clutch bell housing issue occurred.

car   Clutch Bell Housing problem of Volkswagen Rabbit

The car was a 2006 Volkswagen Rabbit. VIN of the vehicle was WVWAR71K76_. I had suspected that my dual mass flywheel on my manual 2006 Rabbit w/ 24k was beginning to fail because I heard/felt something shaking around in the bell housing of the vehicle 1 out 10 times that I would depress the clutch pedal in 1st gear. The shake had been present since I bought the car but in the past year it had gotten progressively worse. So I was on my way to the dealership when my car began shifting poorly. The gear would engage right when I lifted my foot off the clutch pedal. It would not go into 2nd gear. The car would shake and vibrate at idle and make a tick over noise with engine revs up. As my shifts got worse and worse I decided to take the next exit and find a safe spot to stop the car. I had the car towed in the rest of the way. The dealer dropped the transmission and found my dual mass flywheel was stinking and it had also shredded the center bushing in the middle of the flywheel. Both the clutch disc and pressure showed no damage and the vwoa replaced my dual mass flywheel under warranty because it had shown no signs of abuse like heat spots or clutch dust. It was 07/17/09 when this clutch bell housing issue happened.
