Clutch will not disengage after i drive for several miles

There's a bit of excess play in the clutch pedal due to a worn bushing and pin at the top of the clutch pedal arm, in the cab. I replaced the bushing and the pin, but it seems that after i drive for several miles, the clutch will not totally disengage. The car rolls slightly at a full stop with the pedal all the way to the floor. it disengaged just fine when i started the car and made it to the end of the block.
any suggestions? does it sound like the slave cylinder?

does sound like slipping clutch , you may not get all the symptoms at once , the slipping usually starts first then the hard gear change etc cant think what else it could be , may have oil contamination on clutch plate this would cause the slip , crank seal ? i think your going to have to drop the box and have a look keep me posted if you wish

The gearbox will not select 5th gear (5 speed manual)


Without knowing what kind of car , engine, or year or mileage.... try these one at a time and recheck if problem still exists. Bleed clutch if it is a hydraulic unit or adjust clutch pedal if it is a mechanical clutch first. Next check linkage for missing or worn out bushings causing excess play. Next, Change fluid. Everything after this gets expensive.. used tranny or rebuild with a new clutch. Good Luck.

1994 mazda navajo manual transmission gears are grinding and hard to shift.any idea what is causing this? it has a 5 speed .


The clutch plate or clutch adjustment seems to be the most likely thing in that it is not disengaging fully. Check the adjustment. There should be about 1" play at the top of the pedal movement and then the clutch should start releasing about halfway down. The other thing it could be is worn gear linkages and joint bushes. Have someone move the gear lever and check for play along the gear change train from the gear lever to the gearbox selector input.

I have a 97 civic vtec and im having serious problems with the clutch. i recently replaced the master cylinder because it was weeping fluid and the clutch was not dis-engaging properly so i replaced it...


if you are saying that there is a whirring noise whenever the clutch is engaged, it may be one of the two causes: it's either you have a loose spline hub on the clutch shaft OR there is misalignment on the engine and transmission resulting to the forward and backward movement of the clutch disk on the shaft..
you cannot get the car into gear.. hmhm, that is called a dragging clutch and it is usually experienced when the flywheel and pressure plate do not fully release the clutch disk in its disengaged positions.. Dragging clutch may be due to: 1. excessive clutch pedal free play or travel 2. improper adjustmen of clutch fingers or release levers 3. warped pressure plate, flywheel (which needs to be brought at the machine shop), or clutch disk 4. loose or worn out clutch disk facings 5. loose or worn out clutch linkage parts 6. accumulation of dust in the clutch 7. engine idling is too fast 8. tight/ burred splines 9. worn out pilot bearing or bushing 10. muisaligned beel housing

Clutch not letting engagement of gears, clutch pedal is soft.


hi first thing to try is to adjust the clutch pedal cable up that is done at the gearbox side by adjusting the 10mm nut on the end of the cable, if after you have done this you can then select gears you will most probably need to replace clutch due to wear.if you cant select any gears even after adjusting the cable then it sound like you have a problem with the selector rod a common fault is for the bushes to wear and knock the selector out of line, check for excessive play in selector rod rubber bush.

The clutch is not disengaging all the way,the slave cylinder,or master for the clutch may be failing,or the pivot for the brake pedal has worn,or otherwise,the bushing in the pivot.

Just to be sure recheck the fluid level of the mastercylinder again. If it is a little low refill with proper fluid, and work the clutch several times with parking brake set. Also check the clutch pedal bushings at the top of clutch pedal to make sure there is no sticking or excessive wear. If you find anything unusal about the bushings, they need to be replaced. Hope this will help you.

Can the clutch be udjusted


This is a hydraulic fluid clutch system.No adjustments can be made.If the clutch can not disengaged enough for gears to shift smoothly,then the master,or the slave are bad.The master is where the clutch pedal goes to.The slave is down on,or in the transmission.If the slave is bad,they will leak,but not always.Most of the time the slave is the cause of this.But look at the slave real good,it most likely is leaking a little bit.Bleeding the system might give your clutch new life,for a while,until the air gets back in the system.
