    Could be that the clutch plate is stuck to the pressure plate and not allowing it to grab the flywheel.
    Is there plenty of copper grease on the input shaft.?

Try to see past the slave hose and bleeder to see if you can see the slave work. Could it be stuck in the depressed position? Have a helper push the pedal while you watch. I think your tranny is broke.

I have a 99 ford ranger 5 speed and my gear shift freely moves without pushing the clutch. What will cause that to happen


If the gear shift moves freely and the transmission is turning, I would say the shift lever is not connected to anything, or something inside the trans is broke.
If the trans is not turning, something happened to the clutch.

CHECK YOUR CLUTCH LINKAGE AND ADJUSTMENT. REPLACING MOTOR MOUNTS RESTORES ENGINE TO PROPER POSITION AND MAY CHANGE YOUR ADJUSTMENT. SOUNDS LIKE CLUTCH IS NOT RELEASING ALL THE WAY

Have issue with H.Santafe V6 5 speed manual 4WD, was driving slowly in first gear then the car stops ( smouth stop), tried to engage 1st, reverse..but nothing happens, when in gear with the cluth pedal...


All without warning. well it happens. This is what has happened, the clutch plate is probaly still good and release bearing and the clutch disk,there probably all good. Inside the transmission is the input trans bearing,This is held by an inner circlip, This part that is needed is called input shaft bearing.the good new is that you wont need a whole transmission just the front part. The shop you take it to all they have to do is remove the transmission as though they are doing a clutch job, then they'll take it one more step they have to remove the input clutch shaft and replace it.Its not an expensive part.it wears out just like a clutch.

1989 Ford F-150 4.9L 300 inline 6 cylinder 5 speed stuck in 3rd Gear? any solutions


If your clutch master cylinder is good in all other gears: you can disengage and, shift the other gears with the engine not running and, you have the correct amount of clutch fluid
in your clutch master cylinder: to release the clutch:
you have a broken 5th gear syncro and, a bent fork
remove the transmission and, when you remove the shift cover you will
see the problem; you must drain the transmission case remove any metal debris; remove the gear set and, replace the syncro...the fork can probably be
re-straightened use clean, new case oil when you reassemble the transmission.

while holding the pedal down have assistant open the bleeder on the master located in the trans

2003 Ford Ranger-5 Speed. At times is very hard to get into gear


Your clutch is not releasing all the way. (Assuming the problem is not internal to the transmission) Bleed the system. If that doesn't work, rebuild the clutch master cylinder and slave cylinder and bleed again.

Hi,

On an 89 Toyota Camry with manual transmission, two possible reasons:
  • clutch;
  • release bearing
Try bleeding the clutch on the slave cylinder. If this does not prove to be corrective, you may have to have the transmission/clutch checked/repaired/replaced. In some instances, it could just be a sticking release bearing or clutch fork.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
