Im having problems with the clutch engaging 1st gear, but will go into second. It started out as something i just noticed one day but got bad in like a week. I was told that there is a screw or something under the transmission that i need to tighten and that will fix the problem.. is that true?? If so where exactly is this... I also notice when car is parked and i wiggle shifter that i hear a clinking sound like somthing is loose..and it sounds like it's coming from under the car. any help would be great.

Re: Clutch/transmission issue ISSUE
There is no addjustment screw it sounds to me like an enternal issue in the trans the knoise u hear is most likely the shift cables and shift leaver
what u should do is go to a hyundai dealer go stright to the back of the dealer to the shop ask a mechanic for 5 min of his time he or some one will look at it no charge for your best diagnosis

Is your truck of the vintage that will be able to start in gear (1st) with the clutch in? If so, then try that and then lift the clutch to see where it engages. If it engages at the very bottom, and the rest is play, then clearly you have an adjustment issue. If the clutch catches at near normal like on inch+ off top end pedal, then you may have a high idle issue together with bag syncs. Where does it feel like it engages when the engine is off? Does it feel normal with only the top end play light, or does it feel light throughout the pedal?
If there was no issue but only a poor clutch prior to your work then the settings of the clutch must be rechecked. Make sure that the clutch functions to disconnect the transmission or else the settings might be wrong.
Secondly in the process of the clutch changing it is possible that the gear movements or levers have be misaligned. please check on this section.
A clutch issue youtend to have more of an engagement problem with 1st and reverse gear for a small time period before you notice other gears.You want to check the clutch hydrolic system for any leaks(clutch slave at transmission,clutch master,which you look for leakage on interior above clutch pedal)and at fluid resevoir.you also want to double check condition of trans fluid. strongly recommend using only HONDA BRAND MANUAL TRANS. FLUID when doing maintinance,fluid should be replaced every 30k on this car.The Honda brand fluid is like night and day on these cars,it WILL make a difference in shifting!!TRust Me on this point! Sorry now back to your main clutch issue,when driveing and you go to shift gears and normally notice grinding,with clutch pedal in shft out of gear and before engageing it into next gear do a double pump of clutch pedal then see if when continuing to next gear if it engagees smoother.if so you know you have without a dout a clutch pressure plate/disc problem. I can tell you that in twenty years the only manual transmissions themselves that ever had problems were due to outside influences(gear oil in transmission,improper driveing,etc.)let me know what you find and we can go from there..JOEL
maybe has a broken linkage or the bolt came lose.
Check if you can engage hall the gears pushing the linkage by hand,engine ranning and same one pressing the clutch!that way you can have same idea wath is wrong?!
I had a problem with my 06 Tib engaging gears properly and noticed that my clutch pedal felt weird, the dealer replaced a clutch master cylinder under warranty and now gears engage flawlessly and my clutch works like new again at 50K miles. If you have no warranty left, this would run you about 150.00.
