1992 3000GT Clutch

Okay, I have a manual transmission 1992 3000GT. When I try to ge tthe engine into first and take off I have to rev up the engine before it moves. It seems not to want to move until then. It feels like the clutch is barely engaging. The pedal goes gown rather easily with relatively no resistance when I shift gears. But, its that intial take off in 1st gear that is of concern.

    was the gears engaging properly before the new clutch was installed?

    how soft is the clutch peddle dose it just drop to the flour?
    if so you may need to bleed the clutch again.

    also was a heavy duty or performance clutch fit?

Check both the clutch cylinders may be there is no enough pressure to release the clutch or the syncronising rings in the gear box are worne out.

If the transmission is not actually slipping, the most likely culprit is the "governor" in the transmission. Fairly easy repair for a transmission shop.

My 2004 jetta manual transmission will not go into any gear if I rev the motor slightly it will go in but at idle it will not when in gear clutch fully pushed in it still rolls forward a bit please help!

Your clutch is not fully disengaged. If it is a hydraulically operated it could be as simple as needing fluid, or as serious as needing a new master and/or slave cylinder. If all of that is okay then your clutch disc may be binding on the transmission input shaft, or you may need the clutch and pressure plate replaced.

You have internal transmission damage I expect the clutches on third and fourth gear are wiped out. Its either that or a solenoid gone bad that holds those clutches pressure get it in a transmission shop soon to avoid whole transmission replacement costs.

2001 Pontiac Sunfire , you start the car and it starts fine no probs then put it in drive hit the gas & it won't move or it could drive okay but when you stop at a set of lights and then try to drive...

When was last time trans fluid & filter was changed? Sounds like trans filter is clogged, hopefully not badly. If it's been happening for awhile you might need trans replaced/rebuild.

My engine seems to rev very high when switching gears. why is that?

it sounds like the fluid level is low-this will cause engine to rev up while it is trying to change gears
the other problem may be that the clutch plates in transmission may be bad
automatic trans having clutch plates and they do go bad
if fluid level is ok try draining fluid and replacing it
if that does not work u need to have the transmission looked at.
