Ali,
If the transmission has stopped engaging, you probably have a transmission problem. Mechanical clutches need to be dry and clean to work properly. If the rear oil seal on you engine goes, you will get a lot of engine oil on your clutch, which will make it good and slippery, all the while feeling as firm as ever. Check for oil where the bell housing joins the engine block. A few drops is probably ok, more may indicate a problem. The cure is to replace the defective seal and the clutch itself after washing off all of the oil. Probably not a job you want to undertake yourself. So if you are going to get a mechanic involved, get one now and ask for a diagnosis.

SOURCE: Clutch pedal sometimes engages when near floor

Hi. Let me try to lend you a bit of assistance, also.
My fellow expert Benimur is very correct with his input to you.

But...Air does not get into your clutch hydraulics unless the fluid has leaked out at some point. As long as the cylinders and tubes are intact, I would doubt that air is the issue. Short of pulling the transaxle, and inspecting the clutch, there is really no other way to determine your issue properly.

Personally, I think that you haven internal problem with the clutch assembly. It could be worn fingers on the clutch plate, a worn clutch disc, or something as simple as the throwout bearing is hanging up on the input shaft collar.

If Beni's suggestions does not help, you are going to need to pull the trans off, and inspect the clutch items mentioned above.

Thanks for choosing FIxYa, we wish you the best of luck; let us know how it turns out.

Why does my 1996 geo prizm clunk when put in reverse?


A clunk sound is usually normal. Keep in mind that you're engaging another piece of the transmission that makes it turn backwards.

How to adjust 95 geo tracker clutch


engaging?
you meant dis-engage im sure.
pedal up is engaged,
pedal at floor dis-engages it.
my guess, is the clutch drags unless i push the clutch pedal 100%
to the floor.
1: bad cable is 90% cause. non last this long.
2: no free play is way too loose.
3: broken lever on the pedal top. caused by #1

all fail modes covered here.

The interior brake light on my console is illuminated.


The brake warning light tells the driver the parking brake is on, or the fluid in the hydraulic system is low.
If the parking brake is not on, and the fluid level is ok, it could be the parking brake switch or the fluid level sensor.

1996 Geo Metro Clutch won't disengage


Hi,

In all likelihood two (2) possibilities:
  • defective clutch cable (most likely); and/or
  • defective clutch fork (least likely).
Should it be the cable, this might be of help. It is turns out to be the fork, you might need the services of a qualified professional or a dealership.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
