than two seconds. Which technician is correct?
a. Technician A only
b. Technician B only
c. Both technicians A and B
d. Neither technician A nor B

gear. Technician B says a clutch slip test can be performed in the shop. Which technician is correct?
a. Technician A only
b. Technician B only
c. Both technicians A and B
d. Neither technician A nor B

3. Clutch chatter can be caused by


a. Grease or oil on the clutch friction material
b. Broken engine mount(s)
c. Low hydraulic clutch fluid level
d. Too little free play in the clutch pedal

4. Technician A says that clutch slipping can be caused by a warped clutch disc. Technician B says that slippage is
the result of too little free travel. Which technician is correct?
a. Technician A only
b. Technician B only
c. Both technicians A and B
d. Neither technician A nor B
