Clutch will not disengage after i drive for several miles

At first start up, the clutch operates fine. After i drive for several miles, the clutch will not totally disengage even with the pedal all the way through the floor. It seems to like it is loosing pressure or something. i think that it is hydraulic. could there be a leak in the system?

    If its an external (Hydraulic) slave cylinder, then its an easy repair/service, if its an internal donut slave cylinder, the transmision will have to be removed to get at it.

    Some vehicle came with either system.

    You should see a small size opaque Plastic reservoir near the firewall(windshield) this would be the Hydraulic fluid reservoir,,use ordinary Dot3 brake fluid to replenish.
    And fill up to the fill line.

How do I disengage TCC on 1989 Chevy Caprice?


What has happened more than likely, unfortunately, the internal piston seals on the servo controls have gotten hard and not usable after this period of time sitting still. The answer is to remove and replace all the seals inside the transmission. Sorry this is the answer, but that is from my 35+ years experience in trans. overhauls. You should not have to replace clutches and plates, also make sure there is no rust on the internal drums from sitting still.

CLUTCH ON CITROEN C2 KEEPS DROPPING TO FLOOR AND WHINING SOUND WHEN MOTOR IS RUNNING


It jump because the clutch disc itself is good, but the clutch is not engaging-the pedal is not making the clutch engage. When it does, then you can shift without grinding, then you can shift period. Clutch pedal operates a cable or it operates a hydraulic system-they both, which ever one you have, move the clutch fork on the transmission bell housing just a bit to cause the clutch to disengage the transmission from the engine's flywheel...so you can shift, see, easy, smooth shifts, no problem, no grinding. Your clutch itself is okay, the pedal is just not operating it.

It sounds like the throw out bearing separated. You will want to change the clutch and pressure plate when you replace the throw out bearing.

HOW DO YOU DISENGAGE 4WD 1997 PATHFINDER


Hi Diamond, These vehicles do sometimes have a problem in disengaging the 4 X 4. Start up and drive it backwards and forwards slowly (3 or 4 miles per hour will do). Gently put pressure on the lever in the direction of the 2 high and after some time it will change. (If nothing has been damaged inside the box, which is unlikely) Regards John

2000 sc1 saturn trouble shifting manual transmissioninto all gears, it will not go in right away but it shifts into gear the second push. In the drive way it shifts into all gears just fine.


If your able to shift with the car off sitting in your driveway but not able to shift once the engine is running then you have one of several possible problems.

Problem 1) Possible clutch hydraulics problem where the hydraulics are not completely disengaging the clutch.

Problem 2) Clutch pressure plate fingers could be tired and not allowing the pressure plate to disengage the friction disc off the flywheel.

Problem 3) Not likely but depending on the abuse of the car, the synchros could be shot.

If the car has a decent amount of miles on it and is driven in the city a lot then Problem 1 and 2 are most likely the problem. So either way it's time to check some hydraulics or replace the clutch.

Please save me from CLUTCH HELL


Have your mechanic ck for a possible issue with the pilot bearing. if the clutch linkage is indeed full travel, then the clutch should be "disengaged" and the only thing left is a pilot bearing (which should be replaced at every clutch replacement) or there is a problem with the disc. If clutches dont last 100k miles it either the driver or cheap parts.

1991 jeep wrangler sahara shifting promblems


Your clutch is not disengaging. If it a hydrolic clutch chk. the fluid in resavor, Or slave cyl. for the clutch is bad, Or it has got air in it and needs to be bleed. This is a clutch problem, nothing wrong with trans. If its a manual clutch linkage its an ajustment thing. My best guess if its hydrolic slave cyl. went bad, or resavor is out of fluid.

This is a Common Problem after Replacement of a Clutch. After a Few Miles it is not Unusual to Have to have it Adjusted Again. I would take it back to whoever Fixed it and have them Adjust the Clutch.
