    alright i just got done swapping motors in my 94 civic coupe. i just put a motor in it with 80000 miles on it. i figured whille i had the motor out i would put a new clutch in it. well i ordered and exedy stage 2 clutch and a fidanza 7 pound flywheel off ebay. once i got the motor done it ran great. i could roll down the road at 20 and smash the gas and instancly roll the tires off and then burn 2nd off. now i was driving it and had just got done burnen 1st and 2nd and i went down the road about a mile and the clutch just quit. it would grab every once in a while but it would only last for about 5 seconds and stop. now it just makes a little grinding noise. also after i connected the motor to the tranny i could turn the motor over if the tranny was in gear.but if it was in gear i couldnt push the car. and if u pushed it in gear and pushed the clutch in it would move. i think it is in the clutch but am not entirely sure so if anyone has any ideas please let me know.

    well in that case it sounds like your clutch is shot, did you give it time to break in or did you just floor it, but to make sure pull it apart and have a look

    well thats why i say pull it apart and have a look it might just be something out of wack,trow out bearing. mabe but if all is good it might be new tranny time, when it pulls does it seem to pop out and make a grinding noise. you realy should give it time to break in the next time
