I just put a new slave cylinder and clutch master cylinder on a 2003 Honda accord 3.0 V6 six speed and you can shift the gears without the clutch pedal pushed in or the car started

that is normal if the gear synchro dogs ( teeth) are in line in the box
problems concerning a clutch are
slashing gears when trying to engage first or reverse with the pedal to the floor ---needs bleeding
slipping when the clutch pedal is released--- slipping clutch from the pressure not being released ---problem in master cylinder
reverse gear is the only gear not synchronised so even with the clutch depressed it is possible sometimes that it will not go into gear unless you let the clutch up to move the gears in the box then attempt to re-engage reverse

How do i no if my clutch needs replacing in my 1997 peugeot 306 convertable

Certainly, that's one way! If the clutch is worn out, it will "slip". A way to tell is to put the car in 3rd gear and rfev the engine just alittle and then let ehte cutch "out." If the engine continues running, the clutch is slipping. You may be able to smell "something" buring as well. That would be the clutch disintegrating.

Be sure to have the flywheel inspected for damage when the clutch is replaced. It may only require resurfacing but it may need ot be replaced.

No forward engagement in drive position

If engine revs go high and no forward movement you most likely need a new transmission

I have a 1998 Ford Laser manual hatchback. It will not go into first gear or reverse when the motor is running. I have to turn the motor off and put it in gear and then restart the motor. It also sometimes...

If you have a cable operated clutch then I suspect that it is stretched or is breaking and not completely disengaging the clutch. First and reverse are the 2 gears that require the clutch to be completely disengaged. As for the rest if the engine rpms and road speed are close to compatible then the synchro rings will allow engagement of the gears no problem. Check the gear selector lever pivot pin in the top of the turret on the gear box as it may be loose or worn and that makes for a sloppy gear stick movement.

Early morning engage rev gear car not moving for at 3 mins

Have had the transmission serviced lately, fluid and filter? Most auto manufacturers recommend changing the fluid and filter every 30,000 miles. I guess I would start with that, don't rev the engine while your waiting for it to go into gear. There is a good chance that the reverse clutch is partially engaged and if you rev the engine to try to make it go, you will burn that clutch up for sure. Also, park the car in such a manner that you don't need to use reverse, right away in the morning.

Auto tranny slipping after shifting out of second

Firstly is it slow for reverse, reverse clutch also engages in 3rd gear however reverse has a boosted circuit (more psi) therefore will engage rev but not 3rd but it is a little slow for reverse.
They do have a tendancy to pop a ball out of the High and reverse clutch giving this symptom.
