U have a hydraulic clutch, either the Master or Slave cylinder is leaking by the internal O ring seals, this causes your problem, It is always recommended that both cylinders be replaced at the same time.

Are you getting a ground signal from the engine computer to turn the fan relays on ?
The computer grounds the relay when the engine temp reaches 220 degrees, or when the ac compressor is running.

2001 Saturn manual stick shift just popped and started wobbling loosely while i was shifting from 1st to 2nd. My clutch works but, the stick shift won't go into any gear


sounds like your washers/bearings/spacers finally degraded. To make sure, pop off the little flexy cover. You will see a linkage that goes straight into the transmission. If the bearings there (the little white plastic ones) look eaten up, that's most likely your problem.

91 GTA 350 Cannot go in reverse; when I shift, the car 'jumps'


Sounds to me like the valve body is sticking causing the low/reverse clutch pack to stick. Might try a fluid/filter change. If all else fails, at least the 700r4 is a cheap/easy transmission to rebuild.

You could change the fluid and add a good conditioner like lucas, but even if it works better, you are only buying time. Unit is likely beginning to wear out.

The clutch IS your tranny in a manual car. Sounds like a rebuild is in order. At least a pressure plate and throwout bearing.
