Was the flywheel turned or surfaced? I would have to say the if it was than you need to shim the flywheel out to get it back to specs.

I have a 1989 Ford BroncoII 2wd clutch will not engage replace the slave cylinder master cylinder bled the clutch still won't engage. No air in clutch whatsoever. anyone have an idea?


Can you see the slave cylinder moving when the clutch depressed. If so, problem most likely internal to clutch. Possible broken shift fork... seized throw out bearing..... damaged pressure plate.... worn out clutch disc. The tranny will have to be removed for inspection

I have a 2000 mazda 323 with a manual transmission. i have already change the clutch kit but the gear is still hard to shift


Check the hydraulic clutch operation. This is a clutch master cylinder with a reservoir on the firewall, and a clutch slave cylinder down on the bell housing of the transmission, with a steel tube running from the master to the slave cylinder. When clutch pedal is depressed, hydraulic fluid (brake fluid) is forced from the master to the slave. The slave cylinder should push out a little plunger that contacts the clutch fork lever-pushing it forward to engage the clutch.
Add brake fluid to the reservoir if needed. Watch the plunger on the slave cylinder: if it moves little, or not enough, try bleeding the slave from the bleeder valve. They are bled just like brakes. If bleeding doesn't help, your clutch master or the slave may need replacing. The master cylinder, like a brake master, has internal seals that hold hydraulic pressure, so force can be applied to the plunger on the slave cylinder.

Clutch problem...?


Hi Amiralred, I believe the problem is to be found with the clutch plate and most likely to do with a defective center boss. When it is removed I believe you will find that one or more of the torque absorption spring has broken and possibly the center boss. A good idea with clutch plates, is to use original replacement parts if possible. Regards John

Stiff gears


Are you sure you have clutch plate in right? The plate is stamped or has tag on one side that says "flywheel side".

I have to force the shifter into gear (all) or I can not get it to shift at all. the clutch level fluid is at max. the clutch does feel soft. Once in gear I can shift thru the gear, but hard. Some...


If you can put it into gear easily without the engine running but it grinds or is hard to put into gear when the engine is running then the clutch has not fully disengaged. If the clutch does not slip once you are moving then the clutch is not likely the problem. Instead you will have a faulty clutch slave cylinder and/or clutch master cylinder. The best thing to do is have both replaced and be sure that they are properly bled of all air. If the clutch does slip then it will of course need to be replaced, and be sure to have the pressure plate re-surfaced! Then there is the possibility, albeit rare, that all three need replacement.

2006 GMC Canyon manuel transmission. When the clutch is fully engaged, there is a high pitch grinding noise. It is also hard to get into gear. What could this be?


What it sounds like is that your pilot bearing has gone out, and that could be causing the high pitch grinding noise and when the gears are hard to shift that is a tale tale sign of a bad/weak pressure plate and or master cylinder. I would recommend changing out the clutch, pilot bearing, pressure plate, slave cylinder and having the flywheel resurfaced.

these are very hard to bleed, also check your fire wall for damage where the clutch master bolts up. another thing is take a good look at the clutch pedal asm, the frame sometimes wears and cracks so you loose a little pedal travel.another thing is a bad preasure plate,spring breaks on plate,

The clutch is stuck to the floor bord and i cant shift


you may have a faulty clutch master cylinder or faulty clutch slave cylinder- leaking clutch fluid. most of the time both are replaced at the same time which should be recomended by your mechanic, the bolts to the master cylinder are very hard to get to and require the right tool.
you should be able to move car forward by selecting 1st then cranking engine till it starts, gear changes while driving are hard but not impossible. i recommend a tow truck to a local repairer.

NV3500 Problems shifting. 1998 s10.


It sounds as though either the throw out bearing or pressure plate are bad. The grinding makes me want to lean towards the pressure plate.

I replaced the clutch and slave cylinder on my 1994 ford f-150 5 speed and bled the line. There is no pressure and the pedal has to go all the way down to engage/disengage the clutch. I don't know what to...


It needs to be pressure bled, you can open the bleeder valve on the slave and remove the cap and push and hold the pedal down once, if it allows fluid to flow threw the bleeder port let it bleed about a pint of fluid to completely rid system with air. Remove the hose off the master clutch assembly and have someone press down on the clutch pedal to see it the master cylinder is pressurizing, if it does reconnect and keep trying. If not remove master and use a screwdriver to push piston on the master to see if fluid comes out. If it does not pressurize you have a bad master. this is a common problem. Also you could have a bad master cylinder or slave so start the procedure above and if it does not pressurize up pull slave off the truck and have it tested.
