    I have a similar problem except my clutch doesn't stay on the floor. It actually is in the normal position, just won't engage unless in first gear. The clutch was doing fine (no slipping, etc), but from one red light to the next, it went out.

    does your Clutch pedal go to the Floor. if it does check your fluid in said Slave Cylinder.. after putting fluid back in, you will have to pump the clutch pedal until there is resistance it should feel about the same as your brake pedal. If it does not keep the fluid you will need a new master cylinder..

    If your transmission is right, you can change the gear without touching the clutch..

    While driving at the point you would push the clutch, take your foot off the gas and move to the next gear, if done right it will slide right in there, and not grind.. I have had to do this myself when I have had clutches go out on me…

I'm not the most mechanically inclined, but I too had this problem awhile back but with a Ford F-150, and my problem was my slave cylinder check your clutch fluid, If its low then its most likely your slave cylinder has went out

You'll need to change the distributor, as the distributor shaft oil seal has gone bad. Without sufficient spark, you'll have no power. Don't forget a new cap/rotor.

My 1999 nissan maxima 5 speed won't shift from 1st to second gear.


If it goes into other gears correctly, then the issue is likely a synchromesh problem with that particular gear, and the gearbox may have to be stripped.
You may try changing the gear oil first though, as this can often fix the issue without having to spend too much money on unnecessary repairs.

Why was the clutch replaced in the fist place? will it go into gear with the engine off? if so, the shifter and linkage is ok. what happens if you put it in gear, and then crank the truck, it it tries to go, then the clutch is not releasing. how does the pedal feel? Spongy? normal? If it feels spongy and the slave is new, replace the master and bleed the air out, until it feels normal, like its pushing on the clutch

The automatic gearbox on my mondeo 2002 changes gears but slips


In the engine compartment, you will need to locate the transmission dipstick. Usually on the left side of the motor, labeled "Trans fluid". Pull it out and check the fluid level. Your problem could be as simple as putting transmission fluid in it. That will make it slip. You fill the transmission right down the dipstick tube.
