Did you take all the adjustment out that the mechanic adjusted into the push rod? With a new master cylinder, it may be adjusted so far out that the clutch is always disengaged. Try adjusting the push rod back to its initial setting.

SOURCE: a new clutch, slave cylinder,

Have you checked that the slave cylinder is attached firmly where it's supposed to be? Have you refilled the bowl of the master cylinder with braking fluid? And finally have you bled the circuit thoroughly after that?

2004 toyota camry manual trany Wont shift engine running 4 wheels on the ground off the ground all gear except reverse new clutch. Bearing. P plate slave cylinder.master cylinder pedal good

Do the wheels turn when in gear while off ground? If so, clutch needs to be adjusted so it does fully disengage. Sounds like it's not doing that.

Car not going into gear

probably nothing wrong with the clutch or gear box
most likely that the clutch master cylinder and /or clutch slave cylinder has failed
replace both and bleed the system properly
If it turns out to be the clutch ( which I seriously doubt from your statement) you would need a clutch hydraulic system in good condition to handle the extra pressure for the new clutch pressure plate

Standard wont go into gear sometimes if you pump the clutch it does better, Was driving home the clutch was real easy to push but i could not change gears..what is this..

this could be a couple of issues, have you noticed low clutch fluid on your clutch master cylinder? this could be a slave cylinder, master cylinder or it could even be a weakend pressure plate.

2001 Ford ranger edge. The gears won't change.

The trans will need to come out. While your at it, just replace the clutch assembly, rear main oil seal, resurface the flywheel, and the clutch master cyl. Its not really a job you should do, find a repair shop to handle it.

Pedal sticking to the floor in my 2004 Maxima

Ok, I dont have a car like yours but. Most cars like that have a Clutch master cylinder and a clutch slave cylinder. The master is under your hood and the slave is bolted to the transmission. They use brake type fluid. Check to be sure the master is at the full mark. They both have a piston like device that is sealed with rubber seals.When you push on the petal the master piston moves farther into its little cylinder that makes pressure that transfers to the slave cylinder to make pressure that pushes on the actual clutch. Whew! Thats a long sentence!
Any way, its alot of pressure.The rubber seals (at 100000 miles) have done alot of work.
Usually one or both of these cylinders needs replaced.Thats part of the manual trans. maintenance. They can also be rebuilt if you can find the kits and a good rebuilder. Its probably best to buy new and Im sure they are not cheap.
If you have a good mechanic (your lucky) have them put the car on the lift while someone is inside the car pushing the petal down over and over again. Being under the car and watching the action of the slave cylinder it should be doing its job pushing on the clutch.Its probably not pushing every time.
I hope this info helps you.

Car wont go into gear

Have you ever replaced the clutch? If not you may need a new cluctch. It could also be your clutch slave cylinder.

The latter is much less expensive and in some cars very easy to change (i did it myself on an old Mazda Rx-7 and I'm a girl!). Hope these suggestions help.

New clutch and car is still slipping

in some cases if the ther is not enough free play in the clutch pedel as the engine area heats up things will expand in this case the distance of freeplay in your clutch pedel. have your clutch pedel freeplay adjusted. Also it is recomeded NOT to resurface the flywheels on nissans It dose change the hight and the distance for where the fingers of the pressure plate and the release bearing flang contact

2000 honda accord clutch problems

There is air in the system. The slave cylinder does provide pressure to return the pedal. Check to be sure that you have plenty of fluid in the master cylinder (clutch). Slowly work the pedal back and forth to try and remove air. (This usually works unless you have really lost all fluid. Once the air is remove depress the clutch while in gear. If it does not keep the car from moving then replace the slave and master cylinder. The parts are a little over $100. Hope this helps. I have one in the shop right now as a matter of fact...
