Question about 2007 Honda Insight

Trouble engaging clutch

My 2000 Honda Insight's clutch won't engage unless I double-clutch it, and even then I'm sometimes fighting with it. I think it's either the clutch plate or throw-out bearing. Any ideas!

Check the clutch slave cyliner for leakage. Is the resivoir full? It may be either your clutch master or clutch slave cylinders. The car is kinda new to need a release bearing or clutch disc. Check your hydraulic system (master and slave).

I just put a new slave cylinder and clutch master cylinder on a 2003 Honda accord 3.0 V6 six speed and you can shift the gears without the clutch pedal pushed in or the car started


that is normal if the gear synchro dogs ( teeth) are in line in the box
problems concerning a clutch are
slashing gears when trying to engage first or reverse with the pedal to the floor ---needs bleeding
slipping when the clutch pedal is released--- slipping clutch from the pressure not being released ---problem in master cylinder
reverse gear is the only gear not synchronised so even with the clutch depressed it is possible sometimes that it will not go into gear unless you let the clutch up to move the gears in the box then attempt to re-engage reverse

Why does reverse need double clutching to engage? This problem still exists even after changing clutch kit! I have a 2003 subaru impreza station wagon.


Your shifter is it loose when you put it in gear does it move more than a inch bushing might be worn out so it makes it hard to put it in reverse how your clutch pedal do you have to mush play in it might have air in the clutch hydrolic need bleeding

My clutch won't engage 1997 Honda civic


Clutch plate and pressure plate seem to be too weak to pull the car. To test the clutch plate, park the car on flat surface. Pull the hand brake up, start the car, depress the foot brake pedal, depress the clutch pedal, put the car in 1st gear, press the gas pedal and leave the clutch pedal at once, while keeping the brake pedal depressed.
Follow one of the two following statements:
1. Engine does not shut down and remain start. (Clutch plate, pressure plate and clutch bearing defective - Replace all as a set)
2. Engine shuts down. (Clutch system is OK and does not require any repair).

Ac won't get cold anymore power to compressor but won't click on clutch won't engage possible problems are compressor or evaporator what do you think?


Has the Freon been checked with a gauge to see if there is enough Freon to allow the system to work. Low or no Freon will not allow the compressor to engage. The low pressure switch is most likely activated due to low freon, and will cause this condition.

Truck is a 4x4 and a 88 Ford Ranger, when you turn the key, the starter will not engage. However, if you ratchet the clitch, sometimes the starter turns over, Is it mechanical or the computer and does...


I know on mine (88 ranger 4x4 manual transfer case and ******, 2.9 v6, short wheel base) it has what seems to me to be something similar to a nuetral safety switch. The starter will not even try to engage unless the clutch is in. You're kind of vague in your description. But if your issue is not getting it to turn over when in nuetral, and not pressing in the clutch I don't think anything is broken, that it is a safety feature from Ford

2000 Honda Civic AC Clutch relay engages even when car is off and drains the battery.


you need to check the A/C clutch relay in that circuit as the contacts of the relay have welded themselves together from the high current draw of the clutch coil and replace this item this will solve your problem of being on all the time and draining the battery

A clutch issue youtend to have more of an engagement problem with 1st and reverse gear for a small time period before you notice other gears.You want to check the clutch hydrolic system for any leaks(clutch slave at transmission,clutch master,which you look for leakage on interior above clutch pedal)and at fluid resevoir.you also want to double check condition of trans fluid. strongly recommend using only HONDA BRAND MANUAL TRANS. FLUID when doing maintinance,fluid should be replaced every 30k on this car.The Honda brand fluid is like night and day on these cars,it WILL make a difference in shifting!!TRust Me on this point! Sorry now back to your main clutch issue,when driveing and you go to shift gears and normally notice grinding,with clutch pedal in shft out of gear and before engageing it into next gear do a double pump of clutch pedal then see if when continuing to next gear if it engagees smoother.if so you know you have without a dout a clutch pressure plate/disc problem. I can tell you that in twenty years the only manual transmissions themselves that ever had problems were due to outside influences(gear oil in transmission,improper driveing,etc.)let me know what you find and we can go from there..JOEL
