    A remote starter? I have an 1986 Ford Pickup F250, 351 Eng. I do not have a remote starter . Isn't a remote start only with a key? Thanks for getting back at me, Please clarify, they did not make remote starters in 1986..I believe.

Yes you can. this has to be done for a vehicle with a remote starter and a manual transmission. follow the clutch pedal up to the switch and unplug the harness. then install a jumper like a paper clip and tape it up good. now secure it out of the way. good luck.....scott

Engine stalled and now acts as if the clutch is not depressed does not turn over

You may have a defective clutch starter cut off switch. Go under the dash and remove the connector from the clutch switch, jumper it with a paper clip and see if the engine starts without pressing the clutch. if it doesn't replace the switch. Caution!! DO NOT DRIVE IT WITH THE SWITCH BYPASSED IT IS VERY DAMAGEROUS.

Clutch relaeasing late

Now you have gone off and confused me. Is it RELEASING late or is it ENGAGING late? Releasing at the top of the pedal is releasing early and engaging late. When you replaced your clutch, did you resurface or replace the flywheel? Makes a BIG difference. I usually recommend master cylinder replacement at the same time the clutch, pressure plate, nflywheel, throwout bearing, pilot bushing or bearing and slave cylinder is replaced. That is the only way to guarantee a trouble-free clutch relacement. The original clutches usually last over 100.000 miles (depending on how it is driven) The replacement clutches will not last nearly that long if a COMPLETE job is not done.

I get undersold on my clutch jobs all the time. But I also get many of those customers back when the other shops do a poor job (clutch, pressure plate, and maybe, a slave cylinder) and the car needs a clutch again in just a few months. It has been a LONG time since I have had one of my clutch jobs come back to haunt me. Sometimes you get just what you are willing to pay for.

2000 pontiac sunfire 5 speed manual transmission with 40,000 miles on the clutch started slipping what's going on with it

a clutch can wear out in a couple hundred miles if not driven properly or abused-at 40,000 miles it is highly possible that the clutch disk is worn to the point that it needs to be replaced. You might be able to get away with driving it but avoid driving it is such a way that it slips-if you can hear the engine running 'ahead' of the car (revving faster than you are moving) get off the gas-especially in higher gears. If you do this until you can get the clutch replaced, you should be able to nurse it along for months.

Turn on a/c to max and hot air comes out...

Check if compressor clutch is engaged when A/C is selected,
- if not, check low pressure gas sense switch
- if it is open circuit the system needs to be checked for leaks and re-gassed.
(To check low gas switch, just ( briefly!) bypass it - if compress clutch engages you have low gas press.)

Ford fiesta fusion 2006-2007 the clutch starter switch has broken, can the car be driven without this?

You would have to bypass the switch............or roll start the car.

I assume you mean the safety switch that won't allow the starter motor to go unless your foot is on the clutch.

Switch is about $ 60 ( what a rip off )

Hyundai Accent 2000 When clutch is depressed gears crunchy.

how many miles have you driven the car sence it came out of storage? you said it sat for 6 years it could be rust on fly wheel or pressure plate, that would make it shift like you said, because the clutch plate is either sticking to the fly wheel or pressure plate. when it shifts hard that means the clutch is not releacing all the way most likely because of the rust. i would just drive it and see if it comes out of it. it shoud not take long maybe 50 to 100 miles more or less. also i would chg. trans oil, setting that long moisture could have got in there, you know what they say about oil and water. also if it has a cable for clutch chk. see if it's hanging up to. setting that long rust becomes a big factor. hope this helps.

The previous post is untrue! MFA means MultiFunktions Ansiege (pronounced AAN-zeeguh).
This is a German- Americanism for Multi-Function Indicator.

The MFA displays the time, time driven since the ignition was started, miles driven since the ignition was started (trip miles are displayed under the odometer), miles per gallon, average miles per gallon, and outside temperature. I think that's it. If you click the little button on the underside the wiper switch, you can toggle between 2 different trackings. If you HOLD that button, you can re-set the avg. mpg's (but not the current mpg's, they are calculated every 30 yards), time driven, miles driven. Contrary to the previous poster's solution, it does not actually indicate anything is wrong with your car! (but they were right about scrolling through the indications with the side rocker switch) the malfunction indicator is on the cluster, it is a little engine block with a lightning bolt through it. It usually means you need an oil change. If it blinks, you have a catalytic converter problem. Hope this helps.
