Question about Cars & Trucks
When my car is off i can go through all of my gears fine, but as soon as i start it i can not go into any gear, what most likely would this be?
Your going to have to trouble shoot your system, if its a manual linkage then either its out of adjustment our your pressure plate or throwout bearing has gone out.if hydraulic i would start by checking for leaks in the system, if you cant find any try bleeding the system (i can walk you through this procedure if needed) if you bleed it and its free of air then you know for a fact its air tight and the problem is elsewhere( i listed this fix first as its free and only cost time) obviously youve assured you are full on fluid by this point. if youve tried all this and you cant get fluid to squirt out the bleeder and you are sure you dont have a leak then you need t0o replace the clutch master cylinder. you can also remove the unit and inspect it. if the boot is all torn and messed up and the fluid is black, or bubbly or if you can depress it with little effort then its most likely faulty. once you have determined that you dont have leaks, dont have air in the line and your master cylinder is working fine then you definitely have a worn out, faulty shift fork. throwout bearing( these are usually accompanied by a telltale squealing sound when depressing the clutch) either way all of these parts minus the shift fork come in a common clutch kit. it depends on the car but for gasoline motors they run anywhere from 100-250 bucks and are easy to replace. if you respond with the year make and model and can help walk you through this problem and fix it. and just to answer your general question your pressure plate is not disengaging from your clutch.

Did you bleed the system fully after changing the cylinders? Those are the two main components that cause such problems. If you bled the system out, and it still has the problem, then you most likely have a ruptured line somewhere that is allowing air into the system.

Did you check the clutch reservoir under the hood mounted on the firewall, driver side? Make sure level is up where it should be. If it's real low, you may have to bleed the system to get the air out. If you need to add fluid, use brake fluid.

Probably the arm that holds the rtelease bearing in the bell housing has slipped out of place. Get someone to depress the clutch while you check the arm is not loose. If the cylinders are working then its most likely the arm is disconected. If you are lucky you may get it put back in place by looking through the inspection hole but most likely you will have to seperate the engine and gearbox. Sorry I havent better news for you.

is the clutch power assisted(vacuum)?if so couldvery well have some bearing on what is happening.I WILL TELL YOU A STOREY.A couple of months ago I changed the clutch master cyl. on my land cruiser and because I do all my own work still I didnot obey the golden rule..3days later i changed the slave cyl...l again did not obay the golden rule...... 2 days later iagain pulled the master cyl off cleaned it all out, but this time I OBEYED THE GOLDEN RULE,WHICH IS::always change the brake fluid when ever you change amaster cylinder either brake or clutch or when I was doing work for other people,if the brakes were worked on or the clutch you drained the sytem and relaced the fluid...ANY COMMERCIAL WORKSHOP THAT DOES NOT DO THIS IS GOING TO HAVE COMEBACKS ..it may only be 5or10% but for a $5container of fluid it isn` t worth the chance I was in that5 or 10 % are you? that is true,not more than 3 months ago give it some thought ....................
