More than likely it has a hydraulic clutch. check under hood to see if it has a resivoir for clutch fluid. it isnt really big if it does but it will say on lid to fill with dot 3 approved fluid only if it does have one.

check the hydraulic clutch is releasing /engaging the clutch plate. Replace the clutch master cylinder if there is no clearance at the clutch slave cylinder piston rod. If cable clutch replace the cable as it is not allowing the clutch to engage.

I was releasing my clutch and heard and FELT a "snap." It's a 1993 Geo Metro with a 3 cylinder engine and manual transmission. After the snap it felt like it wasn't quite "grabbing" when I released the...

Try a new cable, and make sure the funky suzuki weak pedal
is not cracked or the spline at top end is not stripped.
there are 2 parts here. not counting the shift lever that can fail.
1: the pedal actuator and cable.
2: the clutch actual.

if the clutch lever moves (at bell) 1 inch the (no play) then the clutch is bad.
see that simple test? the 1 inch?
you step on the pedal and the lever on the throw out moves 1inch.
that is all the curator does.

the cables is only good for like 100kmiles, (more if lubed)
and like to break in the center where you cant see, they fry there
and prevents you from setting up free play right.
see the problem here? if the cable is bad , you had tension on the
bell lever and the clutch slipped and burned up.
the cable is the cheapest part and the lowest labor.
why folks replace it last , is a wonder. but see that all the time.

do you understand the free play rules here. on all clutches.
(cable or lever type)
it must have free play, 1/2 inch at the pedal or 1/8" at bell lever.
if not the throwout burns up.
if not, (worse) the clutch slips.
if not the PP fingers overheat and the spring fails, (anneals)
free play.
and changes to tighter as you drive and clutch wears.
if you cant get the free play right ,its a big issue.
the #1 reason is bad CABLE. $25 and its out.

1993 F350 with ZF transmission: Is it possible to replace the clutch release fork without removing the transmission?

I would say that that is enough travel to disconnect your clutch.. doesn't matter whether fork is bent.. in saying that I had occasion to find a smaller bore slave for my small truck that was hard to change. And rather than change clutch I fixed it that way.. more likely our clutch has broken the diaphram spring ??

My transmission makes noise until I depress my clutch

sounds like the main shaft bearings within the gearbox itself. i would of said the release bearing but u already changed it. the main shaft doesnt spin with the clutch pedal pressed. check for oil leaks and check the oil level in the gearbox.

95 gmc sierra k1500 4x4 5spd manual noise

the leak is probably a separate issue from the noise. is the leak very bad? can you tell if it's engine oil or transmission lube/fluid? most likely the rear main bearing seal needs replacing. the noise is most likely the clutch release bearing. you should replace all components of the clutch assembly which include; clutch plate, pressure plate, release bearing and piolot bearing. also have the fly wheel resurfaced. while the trans is out, you can check the rear main seal and the trans input shaft seal and replace accordingly.

Removal of a 93 pontiac sunbird LE transmission

Hi Stinky!
The engine/transmission drops out the bottom as a unit after removing the drive axle half-shafts, wiring, hoses, fuel lines, linkages, and lastly, the support crossmembers and mounting bolts. Once out of the car, the engine and transmission can be separated by removing all of the bolts attaching the torque converter to the engine flex-plate (Where the starter ring gear is attached, like a flywheel but little mass); the flex-plate (and crankshaft) will have to be rotated to access all of these bolts... then remove the bolts mounting the bellhousing to the engine.
Make sure the torque converter stays in place on the tranny nose shafts... if it come loose, it could damage the converter or the shafts, and it can be difficult to reinstall.

Hope this helps, let me know if you have other questions, and GOOD LUCK!
