I agree with babygirl check your master and slave cylinder slave is most likely gonna be the first to go and make sure fluid levels are good (both in the tranny and in the clutch system)then flush and bleed the and if you pay 450 for a clutch i wanna be your new parts supplier cuz thats no where close to right unless you are pay for install toothen i gues thats ok but i only charge 300 i guess i need to raise my prices

I don't know if you went back to look at my post, but i fixed my car by putting in a new slave and new master cylinder and then tightening up the clutch petal. it does NOT grind anymore! and my baby is like new! it cost me about $90 through napa auto parts. $66 for the master and $16 for the slave and it comes with everything you need. hope this helps you!

New clutch installed but on pull off it jumps out of 1st gear,Why


Most likely your transmission needs a synchronizer replaced for 1st gear. The synchronizer allows the trans to be put in gear without grinding but also helps hold it in the gear it is shifted into.

When I put the car in 1st gear it grinds and won't go in. If I let it set for a while then try it again the gears will work. I am not sure why the care does this. Can anyone help? I have had t


It may not be the transmission, it could be the clutch or clutch pressure plate. Try double clutching (pump the clutch twice) before shifting.

Cant shift? reverse grinds? and pressure in clutch is low


What you describe sounds very much like the clutch is failing to disengage.
Fluid level being fine and no leaks under the car is good, but doesnt mean there isnt something wrong with either the master cylinder, slave cylinder, or the associated parts.

Highly unlikely there is a fault with the flywheel or clutch as failures with these would normally give no drive in any gear.

My 1991 Subaru Legacy won't go into gear


Does it go into gear ok when its not running? When its running does it grind when you try to put it in gear? Does clutch feel firm or soft when you push it in? If you can shift all gears when its not running then its a clutch problem. If you can't than its a transmission problem. Is it a hydrolic clutch or mechanical? I can only guess and i won't do that, i need this info to help you.

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.

Help please!


I haven't fixed mine yet but sounds as we are having the same problem. My plan is this..once i get it the car in gear the clutch does not slip so I am going to change the slave cylinder first, if that does not fix it I will replave the clutch and presssure plate and bearing. Hopefully the cheap fix will do it for the time being. Clutch 100.00 yourself..shop cost around 500.00, slave cylinder yourself 50 to 60 dollars. Hmm..Guess we hope for the.

Car will not move when placed in gear.Took off from lights in first gear heard grinding sound and had to coast into sidepark. Clutch fine just no gears engaging.Mitsubishi Pajero 4x4 Diesel 4cyl 1992.


Have a helper put it in first gear and then check to see if any of the driveshafts or half shafts are spinning. U could have a broken axle, or one of your axles popped out. Or u could have spun all the fiber or lining off your clutch disk. With car running try to shift in to gear without depressing the clutch if it goes into gear with no grinds then it your disk. just a few simple tricks to try.

Transmision shifting problem


Reverse is not sycronized, this means the gears have to stop to mess and not grind, two thing cause this, being to quick to slam into reverse after clutch is depressed, a problem with the clutch.
