Hi all,

Just finished changing out the clutch, PP, and Flywheel in my '02 coupe 6M.
Car starts up fine and runs for 60 secs. Then it shuts down?? Keeps doing this.
No check engine light or anything. Is there a fuel cut off or security feature i'm not aware of?

Thanks!

Ben

now it runs for 5 seconds and shuts off. No check engine light. No codes. Strange. Any advice?

Who changed the clutch?

Take it back to the dealer!!! They obviously didn't test their work!!!! The clutch is not adjusted correctly and is shutting down the car!

clutch

may be a fail safe feature to save flywheel. maybe car thinks clutch is up to the limit and does not recognise/acknowledge new clutch been installed in which case need to reset clutch engagement point. ask dealer to adjust clutch via sd2.

They should have adjusted the clutch before it left

the dealer.. If you did the clutch yourself, then you need to take it in to the dealer for the SD2 kiss point adjustments...

Even in a manual 6-speed the kiss point has to be adjusted with the SD2? Wow, what a pain.

OK, its been verified. NO SD2 CLUTCH ADJUSTMENT NEEDED ON THE MANUAL.
JUST ON THE F1.

When I removed the bellhousing the motor moved and jolted a little. This caused the plug on the MAF sensor to pop halfway out. That was the problem! Once I plugged the MAF in again....started up like a dream!

All manual owners can breathe now. No special dealer computers needed! YEAH!:D

6M>F1 hahahha...;)

Oh by the way,
Anyone with a Manual tranny doing a clutch/PP/Flywheel/TO Bearing change?

I have an entire package that includes the Clutch, Pressure Plate, Flywheel, and TO Bearing. The entire package only has 4500 miles on it! Tons of mileage left. Will sell the entire package for a fraction of the caost.

How does the pedal feel with the new clutch?
Is the engagement point still at the top of the pedal travel?

design flaw

this whole clutch business really sounds like bad engineering. i
mean, even if some here argue there are good (technical) reasons
why they only last 20000 miles, that's not really convincing.

if these cars were used only on tracks, it would be easier to
understand. if it's the case in normal use, this sounds just like
a way to get more $$$ from their supposedly wealthy owners
every other year...

and if the clutch disk is designed to wear, than the car should
have been designed so it could be replaced *easily*.. everything
else just sounds like completely flawed.

cheers..

Before the clutch change, it would engage when it was almost at the top. It was horrible.

After the change, it engages before just before halfway.

You are correct. A few years back, I completely restored a '92 GTI. The GTI had a 2.0 16v 130hp motor. The clutch disc was "exactly" the same size as the one I just changed out in my Maserati. :mad:

Weird -
Mine has been at the top since day one.
Not here. I was elated with the change in engagement.

I replaced the clutch/PP/Flywheel//TO Bearing/Torque Tube and replaced the Gear Oil w/ Royal Purple's Max Gear Synthetic High Performance 75w140.

Sucks that my Coupe only has 24,000 miles on it.

Just think of the money you'll save on fuel...

What has happened is a pipe has fallen of the airfilter intake, if you check the airfilter piping under the bonnet you should see a small pipe that has dropped off by the air mas meter - its very common.
