How do you know if the clutch is out or the transmission


if there is a clutch problem, the symptoms are engine rpms go up on acceleration but the car only goes slow
car shakes when riding the clutch
car jerks when slowly letting the clutch out
however if the clutch system hydraulic or cable is faulty it will slip , jerk etc when you take off
My first point to check would be the cable if cable operated clutch , clutch master cylinder and / or slave cylinder if hydraulic
clutch system either cable or hydraulic will cause the clutch to slip or not disengage the clutch properly
( grating in first and reverse )
Transmission either work properly or are very noisy , jump out of gear so at this stage I would suggest that you concentrate on the clutch operation
unfortunately you didn't bother to include any details in your question like make ,model year , cable or hydraulic so the answer can only be general or what the indications of a problem are

How do i troubleshoot my clutch system


No, the clutch and brake hydraulic systems are not connected.
If you are loosing fluid, you should be able to tell if it is leaking from the master cylinder where you add fluid, or the slave cylinder on the transmission.

Only half clutch pedal wen running


Hi:
You don't tell us what we're dealing with so will go with general principles:
- Manual clutch? Check linkages, adjust slack. Possible that clutch is worn, throwout bearing?
- Hydraulic clutch? Same thing only also check fluid level, master & slave cylinder function, fluid leaks.

Transmission will not engage on any gears but clutch is good and strong


I guess my first question is - how do you know the clutch is working ?
You have a hydraulic clutch much like the brake system so you would need to know that the clutch disc is making contact with the flywheel.
Its possible the main shaft in the transmission broke, or something in the differential that transfers power to the axles.
Can you tell if the transmission gears are turning by shifting thru the gears ?

My 2002 Volkswagen golf 2.0 shifter got really loose can't tell what gear im in. When I put it into first I can get it to role with allot of gas but still doesn't feel like it's in gear and...


The transmission in a Volkswagen vehicle shifts gears only when there is enough hydraulic pressure. This is made possible in part by the clutch cable, because it connects the clutch pedal to the clutch master cylinder. The clutch master cylinder in turn transforms the foot pressure that is carried through the clutch cable into hydraulic pressure. If the clutch cable breaks, the clutch master cylinder will be unable to generate enough hydraulic pressure for shifting gears.

My gears are all locked up so i cant shift. i push the clutch in but i have to force my car into gear. i think its my clutch but i dont know how to fix it. What could be some possible problems and...


unfortunately, bad news, you cannot adjust your clutch as it is hydraulic.
Hydraulic clutches are adjusted with shims on the flywheel after it has been machined. This happens during a clutch change. You may have other problems like a hydraulic leak or a bad pressure plate, really the only way you can find out is by an inspection bya shop, or if your lucky enough to know someone ....handy

When clutch pedal depressed clutch does not move away from fly wheel started 2 1/2 days ago. is cluth hydraulic or cable? thanks ray


in a car this 'new' prob. hydraulic. check clutch fluid reservoir- should be near brake fluid res.- will be smaller- if fluid is low, or empty- may be clutch master cylinder, or clutch 'slave' cylinder is leaking. check for leak under car, should smell like 'brake' fluid. if your brake master- both reservoirs are to the full line, and there's fluid under car, close to where clutch master is located, or near front of , or side, of tranny- then it's a clutch problem of some kind (as if you didn't already know this!!) relatively new vehicle (by my standards!), should have hydraulic clutch.
do you mean- when you depress the clutch pedal, it goes to the floor, and you can't shift into any gear??
should have asked this first! front wheel drive or rear? i'll guess front wheel drive. may have hyd. fluid leak in master or slave. (apologize for 'terms', but as 'male & female connectors', it's traditional, non-racist and non-sexist nomenclature!!) gotta' be careful, in the 21st century!! if there are, as i stated previously, 2 similar reservoirs, close to each other, then you prob. have hydraulic clutch. may need 'master' rebuilt, or replaced, or 'slave' replaced-it can be rebuilt, but prob not cost effective!
sorry to be 'long-winded/ texted', good luck!

Transmission or Clutch problem?


Jeep #1: Sounds like a shift linkage problem. Possibly synchro forks are sliding back and forth on shift rails and are out of adjustment. This is internal and cannot readily be fixed without trans removal as far as I know. Hydraulic clutch system is non-adjustable. A new clutch should last at least 70K so, unless it was installed improperly, it should be OK. Check hydraulics for leaks & bleed. Clutch should "catch" about two inches off floor (not too low or not too near top of travel)
Jeep#2: Has a synchro or other internal gear problem... Symptoms are similar but gringing and clicking noises indicate worn or broken internal components!
Good luck to both!

Your clutch is self adjusting hydraulic design, when the clutch plate gets really worn the adjustment availiable runs out and the trans gets hard to shift, a clutch plate is like a brake shoe, the friction material wears off over time.

Engine has no pull


I'm not sure what you mean by "the RPMs go way". If you meant that the RPM goes up high, then it sounds like the clutch is slipping. I think your model will have a hydraulic clutch, which is non-adjustable, so the clutch will need to be replaced. This sounds the most likely scenario, given the high clutch pedal take-up point you described. However, if you meant that the RPM's go away (or drop down), then it might be an ignition misfire, but I need more info.
