Question about Ford ZX2
With it on a lift i can switch gears in all gears without cluch or relese fork but once it is on the ground it wont shift.peddel has great preshure and mc sc and all lines have been replaced and vacume blead with a vaczilla. ondemand gives me nothing but put a new trans in. on the road it is hard to force it into gear and dies right after and if you have somone depress the clutch while u watch the shift fork wont engage(or disengage)yet the pressure off of the sc is eather way to much pressure or perfict but still will not engage. im of the suspission that it has to be a bent shifter fork(the main fork coming off the slave into trans) if started in 2nd gear i can get it going and once im going i can shift 3-5 . nick tyler Jan 19, 2013 reverse is the only one that will grind, like its stuck in forword gears
Just a suggestion here but my son was experiencing the same problem with his Toyota Celica. We replaced the clutch and throwout bearing and MC, had me stumped for days the I pulled back the rubber boot on the MC where the it comes through the firewall under the dash and saw that there was fluid leaking into the boot so basically the MC was bad an it was bypassing the metering valve causing the fluid not to push the slave cylinder all the way down for engagement. On another car ...a 97 Saturn SL it wouldn't shift into gear, also all new clutch components. Wound up being a bad top right side motor mount was bad. engine was sagging just enough to cause the clutch not to shift properly. I hope this helps.

Check all your hydraulic connections for seepage . If you find nothing leaking, check where the rod goes into the master cylinder under the dashboard...If still nothing, I'd change the master cyl, as it is likely internally bypassing and permitting the clutch to release. PS it takesa a special "touch" to shift gears without using the clutch, if you cannot do that don't drive it Till you get it fixed...you will damage synchros and will need to have trans removed and rebuilt. $$$you don't want to spend!!!

Are you sure the clutch disc is installed in the correct direction?
Admittedly, I haven't seen the clutch disc for a Mitsubishi 3000GT, but I have seen my share in many makes of vehicles.
The clutch disc may be one of those that will install in either direction. Some clutch discs are made so that the inner hub with springs, can be installed towards the crankshaft, or towards the tranny.
