Yes there is a manual bleeder on your tracker. it is bleed the same way you do brakes.you need an other person to help you. you pump the clutch and after the 3rd pump hold the clutch and havethe other person open the bleeder screw with a 10 mm wrench. fluid will come out . do not let the clutch go until the person closes the bleeder screw .do it 3 times

SOURCE: My clutch on my 1998 cavalier is loosing its

If it has a hydraylic clutch and not a cable then this could just need bleeding or a new slave and maybe a master cylinder this can be checked easily on the gearbox where the clutch lever is there is a rod that goes into the slave cylinder or if it is a cable then that will be there in staed of the slave cylinder, get someone to push the clutch pedal down then check the movment hold that down and make sure the clutch lever travels about 1"stays out.if it does not then theres a fault, you can bleed this of air and if that does not work then then there is a fault in either of the cylinders.If there is this movment in the clutch arm and it does hold out then there is a fault in the clutch cover,bearing or damaged folk which may mean removal of the gearbox.

SOURCE: New clutch doesn't feel right.

if your sure you have gotten all the air out and all the components ie. clutch, pressure plate ect look to be ok, check the frame work that the clutch pedal is secured from (under the dash).

when they break loose, it causes the pedal to travel to far before the clutch is released all the way.

SOURCE: clutch very loose how hard to change gears.

The clutch is a self adjusting hydraulic system check the clutch fluid res. It should be located on the firewall on the drivers side close to the brake booster. If it is full then you might check to see if the clutch slave cyl. is working if it is then you will have to drop the tranny and replace the clutch.

SOURCE: hard time shifting. replaced clutch slave

Sometimes the slave cylinder takes a little extra bleeding to remove the air in it & until it's all gone, the clutch won't open completely, causing the problem you are describing.

If the shifting can be done between all of the gears while the engine isn't running on level ground then the forks should be ok & not bent inside the transmission and you should be able to get the car to shift properly.

I've done several of these and found that if you start by making sure the Clutch Master cylinder is full, and remember when you add fluid, try to add without aerating the fluid. Pouring down the side of a funnel is better than pouring straight into the container as fluid picks up air during the splash. Hopefully doing it this way will prevent small new air bubbles from getting back into the lines when bleeding.

Next, after having one person pump the clutch pedal quickly 3 or 4 times & continuing to hold the pedal to the floor until you've completed this phase, instead of just releasing the pressure through the bleeder valve, also push on the clutch fork/rod to go ahead & force the fluid completely out of the slave cylinder, tighten the bleeder and have the assistant slowly pump the pedal to bring the slave cylinder back into contact to where it was before you pushed it to drain it. Refill & bleed as usual a couple of times. If you don't have a good clutch pedal now with good release, you need to check the Clutch Master Cyliinder since once the bleeding is done, this is a completely automatically adjusting system. good luck

Have you got a hole in the floorboards????
It could be something loose in the clutch or just something ricochetting around the bell housing.

How to adjust the clutch on a 1999 Ford escort ZX2


The clutch is not adjustable it is fully hydraulic. That means it is self adjusting, if the clutch pedal engages high on the pedal and the clutch is hard to push you need a new clutch plate and pressure plate.

Gears are hard to get into or they grind


Hello Hannah, I don't believe just yet that your problem is inside your transmission. I would first check the adjustment and condition of your clutch. If it were an internal transmission problem it would probably be with one gear ,not all of them. You aren't grinding fourth gear because it is possible to shift into fourth gear without using your clutch if your RPM's are high enough. If you are really lucky you will only have to adjust the clutch, and if your not so lucky you may have the go for a new clutch, preasure plate, and throwout bearing. In any case I would like to know how you make out, please contact me and GOOD LUCK.

The clutch pedal at times gets soft and gear shift is hard I have to turn off the truck pump the pedal for a while, some times when it is in 4th gear is hard to gear down


I have a 92 toyota camry and had to have my clutch replaced & the switch a year ago I already know it's all hydraulic but now the clutch pedal feels spongy easy to push in I have to wait till the car warms up & the rpm's drop even in 90 degree weather & then it's still hard to shift into gear once I'm able to drive it around for a little while it seems to work fine, I called Firestone who done the clutch they said it COULD be the clutch master cylinder how could I be sure or what can I check to be sure of what it could be before I take my car anywhere to be fixed.

Clutch not letting engagement of gears, clutch pedal is soft.


hi first thing to try is to adjust the clutch pedal cable up that is done at the gearbox side by adjusting the 10mm nut on the end of the cable, if after you have done this you can then select gears you will most probably need to replace clutch due to wear.if you cant select any gears even after adjusting the cable then it sound like you have a problem with the selector rod a common fault is for the bushes to wear and knock the selector out of line, check for excessive play in selector rod rubber bush.

1998 Saturn SC1 manuel stick is hard to shift into 1st & 2nd gear


Try to double clutch the clutch pedal. How to double clutch; push the clutch in moving the stick to neutral, then release the clutch and then push it back in and shift into first or second gear. If it works then it is not the shift linkage and could be a clutch adjustment. First how far do you have to release the clutch pedal until the clutch plate starts to engage? If only an inch or so the clutch pedal needs to be adjusted, which is an easy fix (this is more common). The other possible problems could be the clutch plate, throwout bearing of syncros could be bad. If it is one of the previous problems double clutching should buy you some time.

I have a 89 toyota pickup 4 speed. When I'm stopped at a stop light, and let out on the clutch it seems like it has lost pressure. When I'm shifting down the road it shifts fine. I checked the fluid and it...


this sounds like the clutch slave is goin out, this unit is on the outside of the transmission. Possibly losing pressure!! Your transmission does not use transmission fluid, but instead gear oil. Have the following checked:
1. Clutch Slave (possibly worn)-this will cause soft or hard clutch pedal feel, slipping clutch, unintended clutch release, hard gear engagement, no/insufficient clutch movement.

*2. Clutch pedal Mounting Plate (possibly cracked)-this will cause improper gear engagement, hard gear engagement, soft pedal feel, insufficient clutch movement.

*this plate is located above the clutch pedal itself, apply pressure on the pedal with one hand while inspecting the plate for fatigue cracks(use a bright flashlight). This is very common on these models. This problem will eventually get worst and most mechanics never figure this out.

Low / Soft Clutch Pedal, 1995 Rodeo 2W 2.6L


my rodeo had the same problem i corrected it by bleeding the slave cylinder. and is located on the driver side on the gearbox you will find it if you follow the line from the master cylinder down to the gearbox and if that helps but happens again it might have to be replaced.
