CLUTCH

1999 Hyundai Tiburon

Transmission problem
1999 Hyundai Tiburon 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 205000 miles

My clutch seems like it has lagging when I accelerate. When I first drive the car after it's been sitting for a while and it's cooler outside the lagging is less severe. As the vehicle warms up and I drive longer the clutch seems like it slips and the vehicle over revs and doesn't accelerate quickly. I'm sure the clutch is going but do u think it's a belt of some sort that expands when it warms up which makes it slip. I would like to know if I need to replace the whole system or part of it? Thanks for your time. Liam

Hi there,

If your clutch is slipping, there is no adjustments you can make. You will have to replace the clutch assembly and machine the fly wheel.
