Clutch Repair Escort 1.8i 1997

Let the car android for about 2 minutes before driving off in the on vain: Always inspect the tablet straps for damage before android. I had to sport what a on vain was cause i never heard of one before now l0l. I veto these small passages suffer from legend buildup, and this increases the problems.

To put it escoet, Ford has a "bad design" of hydraulic lifters on the zetek motor. If you dont believe me, consider this: In the last revission of the Zetek, called Zetek-E post the hydraulic lifters were replaced by adjustable lifters. Beacuase of "bad design", the oil passages are too thin to carry the thick oil well, and the lifters dont work properly. This casues loss in compression, and stalling.

Soon as the oil warms up, it becomes thinner, and the lifters work fine again. Some have recomended 10w20 or 10w30 oil. These oil's are not as thick when cold, and so the "stalling at first stop" problem is minimised. I changed my oil from 20w60 to 10x30 oil, and the "stalling at first stop" problem almost went away. It did not totally solve the problem though. I believe these small passages suffer from dirt buildup, and this increases the problems. The only real sollution is to take the head off, clean all passages, and replace Hydraulic lifters. My recomendation i know it sounds stupid is to sell the car if you can.

Do not use air tools to tighten the bolts. The self-adjusting mechanism fails to lock due to worn ratchet and pawl.

Repair self-adjusting release system. Replace ratchet and pawl. Release bearing travel is insufficient. Inspect release mechanism for full travel repaur lost motion due to worn parts. A stamped steel release arm can wear and break. Always remove and check arm and external pivots. Install new fork bushings and lubricate as required with high melting point grease. Angular misalignment of the transmission to engine. Install new clutch and support transmission during installation. Do not allow the transmission to hang on the clutch disc during installation. The above problems will cause cracking in the segments, leading to separation of the damper and facing segments.

Driver resting foot on the clutch pedal resulting in release system sticking. Check all components of the release system, particularly self-adjusting release systems, and guide tubes.
