new clutch slipping
i am having a problem with mine. i have a 1986 toyota pickup 22r, 4 speed.
the clutching was slipping in feb of this year, took it to local garage and he put in new clutch and re surfaced the flywheel. picked it up and clutch was letting out at top the same as before and slipping, i was told the master cylinger and although it was only a year old i let him put one on, still slipped, so i said what should we do now? he said slave cylinder so i went got one and he put it on. the clutch is still in worse shape than it was before he ever touched it. i still owe him $58 for labor and have paid him over $250 in labor.
i asked him if he could have put it in backward, he said it would not go in backward, i think it will. he said then that if it were in backward it would pull all the time. i said which one do i believe bubba? i asked him when he wanted to take it down to see what was wrong. he said he would only do that if i paid him the $58 and paid him the price of putting in another clutch.
you can just imagine how mad i got, but i didn't say anything. i have a man who is going to do the clutch in a couple three weeks who is a neutral party.
can anyone tell me what they think this is other than the wrong mechanic??
i already know it took it to the wrong place. can the clutch be in backward?
he is trying to say weak pressure plate in the clutch kit i supplied. that don't sound right to me.
you guys deal with this all the time on these old trucks and i love my little truck. it gets 37 mpg so you can understand i want to keep it.
