Replaced clutch but pedal will not move down at all now on 98 chevy 1/2 ton 2wd

Replaced clutch and resurfaced flywheel on 98 chevy 1/2 ton pickup 2 wheel drive with 305 V8. Now clutch pedal will not go down at all locked up.
Is there a check valve in hydralic system somewhere that needs to be reset or back off? Is possible that peddle was pushed while trans was out.

Sounds like the release bearing is in backwards! No check valve. If the peddle was pushed, it would pop the slave cylinder piston. 2/ The clutch disc could be in backwards too! Either way, you will need to pull the tranny! Sorry! Frankster016

If you release the clutch pedal and it revs up before it goes and while driving the rpm gauge goes up and down is that the clutch slipping


If you are getting that amount of slippage, it is unlikely that a simple clutch adjustment will cure it. Your clutch pedal should have roughly 1" of free play from the top of the clutch pedal, and absolutely no more than 2" free play.
If you have zero free play, it "may" be possible to eliminate the slippage by adjusting the clutch, but you would have to be very lucky to get off that easy.

The slippage means that your clutch disc is most likely worn too thin and possibly glazed, as well as glazing of the flywheel and pressure plate friction surfaces. When the pedal is released, the clutch engages by sandwiching the clutch disc between the flywheel on one side and the clutch pressure plate on the other side. Strong springs in the pressure plate keep the clutch disc tightly sandwiched between the flywheel & pressure plate. Pushing on the clutch pedal releases this tension/pressure.

It's never "just a flywheel". That mechanic is bogus. All 3 parts are affected by worn or slipping clutch. Usually you don't need a new flywheel, as resurfacing it is usually fine & the normal procedure.
But you will need to replace the clutch disc and pressure plate anytime the flywheel is resurfaced.

Resurfacing a flywheel is similar to resurfacing brake rotors on a brake pad replacement (brake job).
Naturally the transmission has to be removed to get access to the clutch components, which is really the biggest part of the job.

Here's a pic of the basic clutch components:

My clutch on my 1985 Toyota truck has these problems the gears are hard to engage when truck warms up and now when I Release the clutch it moves less then a half an inch and the truck wants to take off can...


I suspect your clutch and pressure plate needs to be replaced,when you depress your pedal to disengage your transmission from your flywheel the pressure plate is not engaging enough to seperate the two it still has a little contact on your flywheel so it is going to be difficult to change gears and your relief is going to be shorter.If you change it out always remember buy a clutch kit with a clutch plate and pressure plate and pilot bushing and slave cylinder all in one kit.Always remove your flywheel and get it resurfaced that is a must ,the flywheels surface will become uneven over time and minimize your surface area on your disc,by getting it resurfaced it will assure your disc has 100% of the flywheel surface for hook up and when you depress your clutch it will clear your flywheel good luck

I have a 1995 Chevy S10 4.6L 2WD Ext Cab truck. Just replaced the transmission and have bled the system. I started the engine and I cannot shift into first gear without grinding the gears. Any suggestions...


If you can see the slave cylinder actuate, then have someone push the clutch down and watch for movement. You should see the release lever move at least a half inch. Let me know if you get movement. I also would like to know if you had the flywheel machined and if you removed, replaced, or added any shims between the ****** and engine block.

How do u change a clutch in a 1990 nissan pickup rwd 2wd four cylinder


You'll need to remove the driveshaft, and transmission crossmember, and then the gearbox and bellhousing from the motor. The clutch disc is between the flywheel and pressure plate. Remove the pressure plate and remove the clutch. You should get the flywheel resurfaced, especially if there are heat spots on it. Also change the throw-out bearing.

Clutch won't release on 92 Nissan P/U. Changed Clutch Master Cylinder and slave. Bled system. Have good travel on slave cylinder but still does not release the clutch when the pedal is pushed?


If the vehicle has been standing for some time (6 months or more) without use, the clutch plate facings may be 'stuck' to the flywheel and pressure plate surface.
To check/clear this problem:-
(with the engine not running!)
hold clutch pedal down - then from under vehicle, find an opening in the clutch bellhousing (such as a water drain slot) where you can see/access the edge of the clutch plate (sandwiched between the pressure plate and flywheel).
Use a screwdriver blade (or similar tool) to prise clutch plate free from flywheel face (only small movement is required).
If the above is not the cause of your problem, 1) the clutch throwout mechanism should be examined for problems,
2) the pressure plate is faulty- may need to be replaced.

REPLACE CLUTCH....IF IT'S SLIPING OR IT JUST NEEDS ADJUSTING?


I think your best option is to ask if the owner will bring it to a shop of your choice to have it thoroughly inspected. An honest approach is always the best for all parties involved. Depending where you are purchasing a car, a 98 legacy with a manual gearbox is much more rare than an automatic. Use your mechanic's report as a basis for negotiation if this is the car you really want to purchase. The clutch parts will alone cost $300 and plan on an additional $100 to machine the flywheel. This, with anything else a trusted eye sees in need of repair, is the wisest way to move forward. Good luck.

Clutch slipping when it get hot


Check the adjustment of the clutch push rod. It is the rod that connects the clutch pedal to the clutch master cylinder.
