    clutch pedal is stuck in and won't come back out, can't change gears etc

  • Anonymous Mar 29, 2014

    When the car is put in gear, the brake pedal rises up and gets really hard. The car creeps along even with extreme pressure on the brake pedal. Mostly an issue when the car is first started for the day.

Sounds like your slave cylinder for your clutch is by-passing.

does sound like slipping clutch , you may not get all the symptoms at once , the slipping usually starts first then the hard gear change etc cant think what else it could be , may have oil contamination on clutch plate this would cause the slip , crank seal ? i think your going to have to drop the box and have a look keep me posted if you wish

Trans sticks in 2nd gear


"...he had to put hi foot on the gas pedal several times..." I do not understand what this means, but does it still fine? If it is then you likely had a stuck shift valve, but why is the valve stuck? Is the valve body contaminated as a result of the trans "coming apart". If it is still not shifting out of second gear then you may have a 3-4 clutch problem, which is a very common failure and requires overhaul to correct it.

1998 Chico 1600 Clutch Pedal no pressure


The cable needs adjusting to be tighter. You should have no more than 1 inch of free play (no pressure) on the pedal before you feel pressure. There must be an adjusting nut or screw, maybe held tight by a locknut that needs loosening first.

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.

Clutch suddenly not engaging until pedal completely released


Two things, first does it slip at all? If you put it in high gear and hammer it, does the engine rev up? If so, you may have a spring problem causing the clutch to not fully contact the pressure plate and will result in this problem.

Is the fluids in the master cylinder full? Do you have a leak? Bad pressure? I'd check those before going on to more difficult remedies.

Personally, by the way you're describing it, I'd say it's a spring. Especially since it's engaging and disengaging correctly. Maybe an adjuster somewhere came loose? I'm not sure with the Explorer, but I know my friends `00 F-150 had an adjuster snap causing a very similar problem but the clutch just wouldn't grab at all due to his problem.
