    clutch pedal feels light, gears grind when trying to engage into first. If start in first and drive and powershift it works. Clutch seems to not disengage. The hydralic clutch seems to throw the fork far enough to disengage, but it's not actually disengaging

Check your hydraulic fluid for the clutch. It's under your hood by your brake fluid. If this is low, the clutch will not work properly.

There is a bearing that presses on flat springs of the clutch plate and slides back and forth on a hollow tube when you press the pedal. These can get fouled with road crud and then hang now and then when you press the pedal and perhaps not fully disengage the clutch as it should producing either a stiff action or even worse, the gnashing of gear teeth. Some bell housings have inspection plates that can provide enough access to use some cleaner/lubricant on the hollow shaft on which the 'throwout' bearing must slide.

I have a 2003 Hyundai accent. Everything feels fine but the release point on the clutch is very high.


Check to verify that the fluid level in your clutch cylinder is correct. With hydraulic clutches, there really is no "adjustment," but if the fluid level is low, the clutch plates won't move far enouth.

Why is my gear shift so hard to move??


I believe your clutch is not disengaging fully. When this happens it may be hard to get into first gear but subsequet shifts are easier due to the fact the vehicle is moving. You probably have a hydraulic clutch system which is low on fluid or may have air in the system. Before shifting into first gear or reverse try pumping the clutch pedal 5 or 6 times then shifting, if it goes into gear easier after this then you probably have air in the system, it can be bled similar to bleeding brakes. If this doesnt work you might be low on fluid, or have a bad master or slave cylinder.

95 accent hard to shift to first gear sometimes forth gear.replaced slave plus clutch pump also has new clutch kit.can the linkage be adjusted be great if you could help thanks.


Yes. You can adjust the clutch rod inside the car at the clutch pedal. loosen the 12mm jam nut and unscrew the rod 2 turns at a time and test clutch operation each time.Repeat as necessary. dont forget to retighten the jam nut. Good luck! Scott

The clutch pedal at times gets soft and gear shift is hard I have to turn off the truck pump the pedal for a while, some times when it is in 4th gear is hard to gear down


I have a 92 toyota camry and had to have my clutch replaced & the switch a year ago I already know it's all hydraulic but now the clutch pedal feels spongy easy to push in I have to wait till the car warms up & the rpm's drop even in 90 degree weather & then it's still hard to shift into gear once I'm able to drive it around for a little while it seems to work fine, I called Firestone who done the clutch they said it COULD be the clutch master cylinder how could I be sure or what can I check to be sure of what it could be before I take my car anywhere to be fixed.

I have a 89 toyota pickup 4 speed. When I'm stopped at a stop light, and let out on the clutch it seems like it has lost pressure. When I'm shifting down the road it shifts fine. I checked the fluid and it...


this sounds like the clutch slave is goin out, this unit is on the outside of the transmission. Possibly losing pressure!! Your transmission does not use transmission fluid, but instead gear oil. Have the following checked:
1. Clutch Slave (possibly worn)-this will cause soft or hard clutch pedal feel, slipping clutch, unintended clutch release, hard gear engagement, no/insufficient clutch movement.

*2. Clutch pedal Mounting Plate (possibly cracked)-this will cause improper gear engagement, hard gear engagement, soft pedal feel, insufficient clutch movement.

*this plate is located above the clutch pedal itself, apply pressure on the pedal with one hand while inspecting the plate for fatigue cracks(use a bright flashlight). This is very common on these models. This problem will eventually get worst and most mechanics never figure this out.

Help please!


I haven't fixed mine yet but sounds as we are having the same problem. My plan is this..once i get it the car in gear the clutch does not slip so I am going to change the slave cylinder first, if that does not fix it I will replave the clutch and presssure plate and bearing. Hopefully the cheap fix will do it for the time being. Clutch 100.00 yourself..shop cost around 500.00, slave cylinder yourself 50 to 60 dollars. Hmm..Guess we hope for the.

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.
