Question about Cars & Trucks

Open Question

Hi, i have a 2005 KTM 300 exc. i replaced the hydraulic clutch oil a while ago and since then the clutch would not fully engage. Thinking there was air in te system i bled it through at least a doezen times to eliminate the possibility, still the same problem. The only time the slave cylinder piston would generate enough pressure to push the push rod was if i physically pushed the clutch lever all the was out before pulling it in to get a maximum pump. But i could not do this while riding. I replaced the master cylinder and still had only a small bit of clutch, changing gear was as if there was no clutch and pulling away was terrible. So i have now replaced the plates and springs which has somehow caused the clutch to have gone completely. When i pull the lever in and put the bike in gear it stalls every time. Please help. Thankyou

SOURCE: clutch not properly disengaging on a 91 ln130 surf

You seem to have a bad or weak pressure plate. Even if its relatively new it may be defective. As far as help to remove the gearbos our its alot of work and its very heavy. I would need a transmisson jack to hold the box. reove all the bolts arount the bell housing the starter and lines to slave cylinder. You should be able to wiggle the box out. To re-install you need a clutch alignment tool.

Smoke from bonnet high revs per minute and burned out smell inside - going into gear inside but car not going anywhere...clutch??

possibly but check out the hydraulics or clutch cable first
if it is a cable then it is possible that the cable is jammed and not fully engaging the clutch
if it is hydraulic it is possible that the compensating port in the clutch master cylinder is blocked and not allowing full clutch engagement

Crunching when changing gears on a pajero

check the oil level of the gearbox, if level is low or oil is too thin will cause it to crunch. put an 80w90 gear oil into it if needs fill or change/ also check the clutch is fully disengaged. maybe clutch hydraulics have air in the system, this will reduce the travel of the clutch fork and not fully disengage the clutch. to see if its the clutch hydraulics select 1st gear push in the clutch and start the engine, if it starts to creep forward check out the hydraulics. if all this ok, prob be the synchro rings internal in the gearbox

I have a 94 silverado with a 5 speed manual trans. 454 engine. My problem is sometimes when i go to put it in gear from nuetral it doesnt seem to want to go in and it grinds like the clutch is not engaged...

nothing to do with transmission oil levels
It has everything to do with the clutch operation not fully disengaging
possible air in system, problem clutch master cylinder
if the system has not had replacement slave and master cylinder since new , replace with new items
other more serious problems include clutch plate linings , oil/ grease on linings and spigot bearing / bush seizing on the gear box input shaft and not allowing the shaft to stop spinning when the clutch is disengaged
Tests are simple
if when using the clutch , there is no shuddering, slipping etc then the plate is eliminated as a problem and that leaves the spigot bush/ bearing
the fix here is the box out and clutch removal so do the hydraulic system first as it is the cheapest

Clutch will not engage, when you force it , you can hear it spinning or whatever. when you turn off engine it shifts great. please advise how to adjust clutch petal, it is low or soft, EMERGENCY PLEASE

Replace your Clutch, Hydraulic Clutch System can't be Adjusted but check if oil level is good if not add the missing oil ( With DOT-3 Brake Oil ) try by bleeding it if nothing changed, your clutch need's to be Replaced !

How do I adjust the clutch in my 2005 F-250 Superduty with a 6.0L Diesel

The clutch on this vehicle is hydraulically operated and as such there isn't any actual adjustments that can be made. A worn clutch disc can cause the clutch not to engage until the pedal is very high up while a problem with the hydraulics can prevent the clutch from fully disengaging which will cause the gears to grind when trying to shift into first or reverse. Hope this helps a bit with your question.
