Clutch not properly disengaging on a 91 ln130 surf

The clutch doesnt seem to be fully disengaging. I have changed the slave and master cylinders and bled the system properly. I have only done 13000 klms since replacing clutch and flywheel. Also any info in pulling gearbox out to check clutch and pressure plate would help greatly.

    I have bled and replaced all the fluid in the master and slave. I have no leaks. When I push the clutch pedal the clutch disengages and then the slave slowly loses pressure. Again, I have no external leaks and am not losing fluid. Clutch itself seems fine. Is this a slave problem or a master cylinder?

You seem to have a bad or weak pressure plate. Even if its relatively new it may be defective. As far as help to remove the gearbos our its alot of work and its very heavy. I would need a transmisson jack to hold the box. reove all the bolts arount the bell housing the starter and lines to slave cylinder. You should be able to wiggle the box out. To re-install you need a clutch alignment tool.
ps. USE OEM PARTS ONLY (dealer parts) TO REPLACE, TOO MUCH WORK FOR AFTER MARKET PARTS. Good Luck

New clutch not disengaging


When I do clutch jobs. I replace the clutch package(comes with the slave) and the master cylinder also. Have the flywheel turned or replaced. Just a note. The clutch plate can be installed backwards. No matter how many times you bleed it, It won't work.

What to do if clutch seems to be not disengaging


Check the clutch master cylinder fluid level or linkage (if it's not a hydraulic clutch). Look for new fluid leaks around transmission. Otherwise, you may have a clutch master/slave cylinder failure.

It could be a faulty clutch master cylinder, there is a valve in the master cylinder that traps the fluid to be displaced to the slave cylinder. If this valve is not trapping the fluid or if the rod connecting the clutch pedal to the master is not properly adjusted, the clutch wont fully disengage, causing the symtoms you've discribed.

Two possibilties. If you haven't yet replaced the clutch master cylinder there might not be enough pressure to fully engage the clutch. If the master cylinder is full of fluid and has been operating properly until now it could be that you only need to adjust the linkage at the slave cylinder to give a little more throw to the pressure plate. Always try the easiest things first. Good Luck!

your clutch uses a hydraulic master and slave cylinder to disengage. It is likely that the slave has been leaking and the reservoir gone dry, thus allowing air into the system and reducing effectiveness. Check the clutch master cylinder reservoir (near the brake reservoir) fluid level. If low, also check the slave cylinder at the clutch for leakage. If leaking, replace the slave and bleed the system. If you need procedures or have more questions, please let us know.

These year models are known for fatigue crack on the upper clutch pedal bracket. This bracket is welded to the dash frame and holds the cluth pedal. To inspect, use a flashlight and point upward illuminating the steel plate. Use your other hand to press on the clutch pedal while observing for plate movement or cracks on the plate itself. If the plate has a crack, its allowing the entire clutch pedal to swivel reducing cylinder and slave travel. If damaged, it must be welded with additional metal plates for increase strength.

Clutch pedal does not disengage clutch in '91 Chevy pickup. Changed Master Cylinder, slave cylinder, and bled hydraulic line. Still not disengaging clutch.Maybe throwout bearing stuck? Or clutch fork?


If the car hasn't been driven for a while it could be corrosion on the fork but I think that is unlikely. I think you are right about the release bearing being jammed in the spring. If the truck has quite high mileage, it probably means a clutch job.

It could be a bad clutch cylinder or a bad slave cylinder. If it is either - the clutch would not fully disengage. This would make changing gears very difficult. If it is the slave cylinder the system should loose fluid and start to drip if you pump it repeatedly. If it is the clucth cylinder it should just seep past the plunger seals and the fluid may not lower. If you put the truck in gear without starting it and push the clutch in - can you push the vehicle? If the answer is no - the clutch is not fully disengaged.

Clutch pedal won't disengage clutch


make sure fluid is full... then pump the pedal with it NOT RUNNING as many times really fast as you can.. try it after that, if it works then you need either a clutch MASTER cyliner and/or a SLAVE cylinder.. MOST likely being the slave cylinder. if the pumping action doesnt cause it to disengage then you have a burnt out clutch. The system is hydralic and takes regular DOT3 brake fluid in the small resevoir under the hood next to the brake master cylinder...
The slave cylinder being bad would mean you have to removed the transmission and install a new slave cylinder... thats the most common issue with those around that mileage...
