Question about 1992 Toyota Celica

1 Answer

Fixing a clutch that suddenly stopped disengaging properly.

92 Gt Four turbo.
Clutch will not disengage properly. Adjusted pedal play untill disengaged , and a short while later would not disengage again.

I suspect a bent clutch fork, or a collapsing pressure plate diaphram.

1/ Am I wrong, what else could it be???

2/ What is the best proceedure to remove transmission to work on clutch? ( My manual only outlines the fwd model not th 4wd model)

That is a hydraulic clutch and when they go out they dont always give warning. but it could be a leak in the line or just low on fluid and needs bled.

I just replaced my clutch and slave on a 92 s10 but still no clutch I get a clutch pedal when I put air to the break fluid could my master cylinder be bad


If your clutch pedal is firm, I would think you are building pressure. So is it not disengaging (wheels spin even when pushing pedal in)?

98 golf clutch pedal went to the floor. Car would not engage any gear. Fixed cable so pedal now feels good but still won't engage I can move gear lever any where, release pedal but nothing happens.


What do you mean when you say you fixed the cable. It sounds like the cable broke and you replaced it. Is that correct. If so, did you adjust the free play in the clutch pedal to the manufacturers specification. If you have not done this correctly the clutch will either not disengage, or no engage properly. From your description it appears as though there is n free play and hence the clutch is staying disengaged even when you release the clutch pedal. If this is the case, then try lengthening the cable until the clutch pedal moves with say 25 mm of free movement before anything happens, and try again.

Clutch pedal fully extended (up) and won't disengage clutch. Happened relatively suddenly.


This may be two possible issues. If your transmission grinded in the past your transmission may have finally given up the ghost. Also your clutch disk may be broken or worn to the point where you can no longer shift. It seems like the latter your going to have to replace your clutch if your a big on doing it yourself a clutch kit is 400$ at autozone. It may be cheaper online good luck I hope this helps

The clutch on my 1998 legacy has just been replaced, but there is about four inches free travel in clutch pedal before it engages the throwout bearing. This leaves only about 2-3 inches at the bottom of...


You want to shorten the cable. Loosen the lock nut.Turn the cable adjuster clockwise to shorten the cable. This takes some skill, and knowledge to get the clutch adjusted just right. You want about 1/2 inch of free play in the pedal. All of this varies according to the wear on your clutch. You say your clutch is new, so acheving a proper adjustment should be no problem. Keep tweaking the adjustment to get it catching where you like it.

The clutch pedal on my '98 chevy silverado is


The clutch in your vehicle is connected to your pedal via a cable system or a hydrolic system. BOTH were available. IF yours is hydrolic, which is doubtful due to behgavior, your cannot adjust it. The cable type is better suited for adjustment. This is done at the end that attaches to the clutchplate at the bracket located on the transmission housing. It will turn to adjust. right tight left lose, it appears that you will need to tighted it a pinch to keep it from "jumping." DO NOT tighten so that the clutchplate disengages, this only a very slight adjustment. good luck

Clutch needs adjustment


as the clutch wears the "free pedal" is reduced ... its easy to adjust "free pedal" and important to do so .. when there is very little or no free movement above where the clutch engages/disengages then the clutch starts to wear rapidly ... if there are no other symptoms like clutch chatter, slipping or noise then the clutch plate likely has some life left if it is adjusted properly and promptly ..

Clutch problem


The rod at the end of the slave cylinder can be adjusted. make sure clutch pedal has no more than an inch and a half of free play. If free play is within the 1.5" & still have problem with clutch disengaging, chances are clutch is worn
