Question about Mazda 323

4 Answers

The cluth occasionaly will not disengage. It will work perfectlty for a week or so then as you are driving and go to change gear the pedal goes to the floor with no resistance but does not disengage the clutch. The only way to get it to work is to turn the car off then restart the car. The master cylinder appears ok and does not leak oil. The local Mazda dealer cant find the problem.

Clutch needs adjusting,or if a hydraulic operated clutch, the system needs proper bleeding.
or the slave valve is broken. It has rubber seals that compress the oil in the line. these seals are worn out .
or also It sounds like it is the clutch cable.  and if  the clutch cable is broken.  replace the cable. It is really hard to get the broken cable out.so do it carefully.

it also happens if the  IT is low on fluid or the clutch cylinder is bad or the slave cylinder on the transmission bell housing. OR the pressure plate colasped-OR linkage is broke - but only if the slave cylinder is moving.

thanks.

I would suggest that if you are wearing your clutch too quickly, see if a "dead pedal" can be fitted. It's a place to rest your foot to the left  of the clutch.

    the more time the clutch is not either fully engaged or disengaged the faster it will wear. Some people ease off the pedal even between 1 & 2, 2 & 3... for a "smoother" shift, but there is more wear.

Check the clutch cable that is fixed behind the clutch pedal, check also where the cluthc cable is connected to the disk, in the motor side.

The cable gets stuck at either one or the other side

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

Problems with clutch master cylinder on a suzuki grand vitara 2007 after replacing clutch master cylinder was ok for 6 weeks now no clutch pedal again!


I too am having problems with my 2006 GV clutch master cylinder. I noticed gradually over several weeks the gears and clutch pedal were degenerating and then the cluth gave completely. My mechanic took a look around and said the cylinder is the cheapest one he has ever seen, it's just a piece of plastic apparently! Is going to hopefully get the part this week or next, though he said as it's such a cheap and nasty part its likely it will happen again in the future. Not happy!

Cluth cable ajustment if equiped.Some cars have a cluth cylender if your model has the cylender no ajustment is available.If you had your cluth changed at a garage you might consider takeing it back in for ajustments.If you changed the clutch check cluth cable for ajustment if your car is equiped with cable if not i would perhaps remove the transmission and inspect clutch for loose clutch plate or release bearing might not be seated properly hope this helped you.

After being stored clutch willnot engage


do you mean wont disengage? does the pedal feel normal, or like its pushing nothing?cant put it in gear? or goes in gear but wont move?. if you put it in gear but car wont move, the clutch is toasted. if you can put it in gear with the engine off, but not when its running, check the clutch master fluid. if its low or out, then the slave or master is leaking and you will need to replace both. if the clutch arm IS working, and the pedal feels normal, sometimes you can put in gear, and start it with the clutch pedal depressed and drive it, and goose the gas to "break the disc loose"

5 speed manual transmission wont shif gears while running


You probably have air in the system. You need to bleed the air out of the system so that it will disengage your clutch. The air in the system is compressing and, therefore, the slave cylinder can't reach the full extension.
