    Clutch pedal is sometimes soft and should press it deep down in order for gear to be ok

    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.

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.

I am having a random problem on my toyota rav4 2003. When I come to a complete stop, it is very hard sometime to switch from the first to the second and the second to third gear. But on third gear, it runs...


Sound like a worn bushing or a synchronizer, How does the clutch pedal feel like, does it feel spongy? Try this with the vehicle off not steping on the clutch can you run it in gears? is it smooth? Now with the engine running step on the clutch do you have to push effort so much?For first the car must be in a complete stop. the sychronizer wont allow you in gear.2nd gear is a differnt story it will allow you in gear easily wheather rolling slowly foward or a complete stop. Take a look at you clutch hydraulic fluid level before you drive off pump the clutch and see if that eases the problem if it does then you are looking at a clutch hydraulic problem.If no change is felt a new clutch assemble with a hydraulic slave cyclinder will be in the work for the Rav4 (why I say this the pilot bearing tend to binds)

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.

97 civic hard to get in 1st gear/clutch not disengaging


Look for WETNESS at the Master cylinder, and at the Slave cylinder, attached to the Bell housing. The loss of fluid is reducing the Stroke of the Push Rod, which will create Clutch Drag, as you appear to describe.

Two problems okay..


For the key issue, try shooting some wd-40 into the tumbler, and working the key a bit. If that doesn't correct the issue, eventually you will need to replace the tumbler.

The hard shift is most likely not related to the clutch. As long as the vehicle has good acceleration, and you don't feel slipping, the clutch is fine. The issue may be related to a damaged cable, or to the linkage at the transmission itself.
