    If hydraulic clutch, check fluid level in reservoir. You'll have to get a look and see what is or is not moving when pedal is pushed. Put emergency on, and vehicle turned off.

I had the same problem and my fluid was fine! First try to bleed it (i went the easy way and bought a speed bleeder) if that doesn't do it i replaced my slave cylinder and it worked.

Hi i drive a 03 ford transit when you press the clutch pedal it feels fine but you cant select gears only 5 gear when you try to get first gear its like the clutch is not being pressed

Your clutch disc may be worn out, when the disc wears completely down the pressure plate goes over center and that causes the clutch to slightly engage when the pedal is depressed and you grind gears, most clutches last about 75000 miles.

It's a 2000 Isuzu rodeo that will want shift in higher gears acts like it's in N shifts in to drive and reverse fine but want shift in higher gears

we cant guess your drive line, not now or ever.
so why ask. us?
my guess you mean the car drives in 1st gear but will not upshift,
and flares, in a false neutral.
wont and want is speed wrong 2 times, why?
Is car with TOD? torque on demand option, we cant see the dash board, we be like blind.
check fluild levels yet,
get the box serviced last decade, (a full flush and filter,) sure no.
check fuses, maybe car has TCM that cant up shift due to fuse blown.
and last did you scan it, if not why not
that be 3rd step after levels, fuses, then scan.
if the TCM cant see sensors, it cant upshift,
TCM is the tranny brain.

Manual transmission hard to shift gears on 1991 rodeo

old car, old post, why not.? Wow it even runs this old, shock !
m/T questions, dah STICK shift.
the clutch is dragging.!
some engines (size) have hydr. and others cable. I cant guess this.

step one is to make sure the free play in the clutch pedal is ok.
  • Cable clutch actuator.
  • hydr. clutch actuator, is auto adjusting.
in this case make sure the slave cylinder moves the slave clutch rod
3/4 to 1" if not, the slave or MC to it are bad.
all answers USA answers, not stated, by you.

2.6L is hyrd. clutch link
so is 3.2L engine. i dont have data on all engine used world wide.
IF hydra. linkages. is the MC dry, (clutch master cylinder)
is the slave leaking fluid. , bingo 2.
is the MC leaking from front or rear side? bingo 3

here is a link to the 3.2 slave

look same place but add , what engine you really have.

2003 ford transit turbo manual gearbox, stuck in 2nd gear, cant start

does the clutch push normally or is the linkage broken not disengaging clutch, and then does shifter move around or locked and wont move, loose linkage in shifter or gears are jammed inside transmission and something went, if shifter wont move at all then trans is jammed inside and needs repair.

When i start car with clutch in. i can shift through the gears. when i release in neutral and try it again i cant get into any gear. feels like a force is stopping me. and when car is off i can shift fine....

The clutch is your problem as it is not lifting enough to disengage when the engine is running .It may be an adjustment (if cable clutch) or if its hydraulic check for leaks ,also check to see how much the slave cylinder is moving when somebody presses the pedal (engine not running).If the clutch fork is moving enough then you are going to need a new clutch.

We have a manual transmission Isuzu Trooper 1995, the gears will not change but car starts and drives in this one gear. The clutch is fine, doesn't stick or anything. What might the problem be?

The pressure plate to the clutch is not dis-engaging the tranny...most likely need a pressure plate and clutch change...Hope this helps.
