Default Do I need a new clutch 2000 accord lx?

I got a new clutch 2 years ago but it feels like it is slipping again, when i press the gas the engine revs but it has no pull and struggles up hills. I want to know how much is reasonable to pay for that to be replaced. Looking online for parts I see many different peices, do I need to replace all of them, and what should labor cost?

Default Re: Do I need a new clutch 2000 accord lx?

I would suggest you take lessons on using a manual transmission. If your clutch is lasting you only 2 years (assuming about 20 000 miles/year of driving) then you are riding the clutch and wearing it out too quickly. Your shifting technique should be quick and smooth. Your foot should not be on the clutch while you are driving unless you are in the process of shifting gears. I drove my 1984 5-speed Accord 136 000 miles on one clutch...took me 5 years to wear it out. I do not know how much the labour is, for that you should phone two or more garages to get an idea what it will cost. Don't let any mechanic but a trained Honda tech touch your transmission unless you already know someone who understands Honda transmissions.
