IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU HAVE A FAILED HYDRAULIC CLUTCH. Since this model is not sold in the US market (we have the 500 only) that is about as much as I can offer.

SOURCE: clutch wont disengage and i can push the car when

That burnt smell is what used to be your clutch disk, and you will need to replace the clutch before you will be able to drive that vehicle again. You should purchase a complete clutch kit for your vehicle, and it should come with a new pressure plate, clutch disk, throw-out/release bearing, a pilot bearing, and a clutch disk alignment tool, and be sure that the pilot bearing is replaced when that new clutch is installed.

2009 Chevy aveo wont shift after clutch is released and car still running. The clutch cable and gear cable move but nothing else.


Assuming you are familiar with the usual clutch faults there are three less common problems that could cause disengagement problems.

Rusty or gummy splines preventing the driven plate moving away from the flywheel when disengaged.

Contaminated friction material causing the faces to stick together.

Damaged or partially seized clutch pilot bearing.

I hope this helps...

I put a slave cylinder in my 97 mazda but the clutch will still not disengage but it moves the fingers on the clutch


Clutch disk could be in backwards.
Slave cylinder may have an adjustment that needs to be extended.
Pilot bearing could be bad and keeps the pilot shaft spinning. (simulates clutch not disengaging)
Pivot pin of the throw out arm could be worn down.

Car will not engauge into 1st or 2nd gear


the gear grinding noise is because the clutch plate is not fully disengaging and the input shaft is still driving. If you did not use the same length of push rod then the slave cylinder is not moving enough to disengage the clutch. Check it out that with the pedal on the floor the piston in the slave cylinder should be almost to the edge of the slave cylinder . That is where It should be to be working properly

Intermittent clutch failure


Either there is low clutch fluid or air in the system. Or the clutch slave cylinder is leaking within itself.

If you put it in 1st., then start it up, it does try to move with you foot on the clutch?


Yes.
The clutch is not disengaging from the flywheel.
Could be the clutch disk or the hydraulic part that moves the clutch.

Clutch Won't Disengage


Check to see if the slave cylinder on the tranny is working when you press the clutch peddal, that might be the problem. I is what actually moves the arm to disengage the pressure plate from the clutch and fly wheel. I would start there

1990 300 zx installed slave and master clutch cylinders,bleaded,and still clutch wont work


The master is bad,or the clutch is worn out,If the clutch will not disengage so you can move the shifter ,then the master for the clutch is bad,but if it just does not pull the vehicle,then the clutch needs replacing.

Shift fork may also be one of the reason! watch the shift fork while moving the clutch in and out.
1)The shift fork is near the clutch master cylinder on the tranmission housing. you should now move the fork left and right while the clutch is moved in and out. 2)From your query, it sounds to me that your clutch is not engaging and disengaging completely. 3) This is due to the air block. Make a bleeding process to blow the air out! 4)A broken shift fork will also prohibit the clutch from engaging/disengaging.

Clutch pedal goes to floor and stays there .cable and all linkages seem to be working


well if it doesnt return then i'm assuming that the clutch isnt actually working on your car right? like you cant disengage the clutch correct? the only thing i've seen on these is that the cable can become disconnected right at the lever which applies the clutch. the clutch lever is right on the front side of the transmission and is easily seen with just the hood open. have somebody push the clutch down and see if the lever is moving. i can't imagine that it would be moving. if the lever does move and the clutch does not disengage then first i would attempt to adjust the clutch cable.

did this probelm just occur out of nowhere?

really the only explanation for this if the clutch lever is moving is that you have a very serious problem with the pressure plate. but i've never even heard of any probelm like this resulting from a bad pressure plate.

i would say that there about a 99% chance it's the a linkage probelm and 1% it's the pressure plate.

but yea if you answer those above questions i'd be able to give a better solution.
