SOURCE: Clutch pedal won't disengage clutch

make sure fluid is full... then pump the pedal with it NOT RUNNING as many times really fast as you can.. try it after that, if it works then you need either a clutch MASTER cyliner and/or a SLAVE cylinder.. MOST likely being the slave cylinder. if the pumping action doesnt cause it to disengage then you have a burnt out clutch. The system is hydralic and takes regular DOT3 brake fluid in the small resevoir under the hood next to the brake master cylinder...
The slave cylinder being bad would mean you have to removed the transmission and install a new slave cylinder... thats the most common issue with those around that mileage...

SOURCE: GEARBOX WONT GO INTO GEAR

hi from uk could you please give a little more info ? what make/model car ? has this problem occured suddenly? has car been layed up off road some time prior to this unable to select gears ? this problem sounds very much like the clutch drive plate is either stuck to flywheel hence question above ? or it is sticking on primary/spigot shaft for some reason and failing to disengage drive to g/box? how does clutch pedal feel ? you might try selecting 2nd gear with clutch fully pressed and h/brake on then try starting engine if engine starts ?runs then put slight revs on and slip clutch a few times this may work if plate is sticking? if you come back with update may be able to advise further

SOURCE: 2000 saab 93. Slow acceleration out of gears, especially first.

Car picks up speed if you accelerate slowly, but the engine races, with minimal speed increase of the vehicle, when the throttle pedal is pushed harder? I'm not aware of the typical layout of the Saab, so while these things below are what I would suggest you look at... Not all will apply. Note that if the clutch plate is worn or otherwise slipping, the more you race the engine, the sooner will you burn off any remaining clutch life. Take things easy 'till you have a solution..... On any vehicle, this is a classic sign of a worn, damaged, or out of adjustment clutch. Or Possibly oil contamination from a leaking crankshaft rear oil seal. It causes a glaze on the linings of the driven plate and loses friction. Or The clutch pedal is not returning to it's normal rest position when released. Check for objects trapped between the pedal and the vehicle surfaces. Or The cable (if used)may be binding, thus the clutch doesn't fully return. It may be out of adjustment. Check for adjusting points at the cable ends. If no slack exists in the cable, it appears as though the clutch is worn. The clutch may be self adjusting. It's possible for self adjusters to seize. Or The hydraulic system (if used),has sticking cylinders. You may be able to clean and reuse the cylinders....

SOURCE: BRAKE PEDAL JUDDER ON SLOWING DOWN

Most likely you have one or both front disks warped. To reduce weight, disks have gotten thinner and warp fairly easily from heat buildup.
If the disk(s) are not too badly worn or too thin, it may be possible to resurface them to improve the flatness but in most cases, it makes better sense to replace them.
I would check Brembo to see if they make replacement disks for your car; I have had good service from them, better than OEM disks.

Have the rotors turned or the discs cut means the same thing either way but yes your disc.

Clutch sticking but works sometimes


This problem is indicative of a blocked compensating port in the clutch master cylinder not allow the fluid to return to the reservoir and allowing the pressure plate to engage . I would replace the master cylinder especially if the unit is more than 10 years old . Ensure that there is no air in the system first although air is indicated by a clutch pedal going to the floor and not returning or difficulty in selecting first gear.

Intermittent clutch failure


Either there is low clutch fluid or air in the system. Or the clutch slave cylinder is leaking within itself.

Do you mean you can't get the clutch to DISengage? You need the clutch to disengage - 'unlock' the transmission input shaft from the flywheel - in order to change gears.
If you put the transmission in 1st gear and start the engine and the truck starts moving with the pedal depressed, the clutch IS engaged. I think you mean that you can't get it to disengage so you can stop without killing the engine, and can change gears without a lot of grinding.
If this is the case, check to see that the clutch cable or linkage (if you have mechanical linkage) is properly adjusted, or that you hydraulic lines and slave cylinder are bled if you have a hydraulically controlled clutch.

Manual transmission will not shift with engine running but will with engine off


The reason is that the gears are turn with the engine running, like the clutch is not disengaged. So that is what you need to look at. the clutch or clutch pedal linkage/ hydraulic system. One of these is not letting the transmission slow down enough to engage a gear.

Are there any malfunction lights coming on? If so then it could be a wheel speed sensor. sometimes people confuse rotor vibration with abs pulsation.

Engine howls when running parked or each time i stop.


A fan clutch typically disengages as the car reaches speed. Thatw ould explain why the sound goes away. When you slow down or you're stopped, it engages and that's probably the sound you are hearing. It sounds like this may be your issue... read this article.

94 cavalier z24 boggles and stalls when stopping after going over 35-40 mph


This is a longshot, I recall a Pontiac Fiero that had a similar problem. It turned out to be the TCC ( torque converter clutch ). which is part of the transmission. The TCC engages when in high gear ( 4th gear in your case ) . It is supposed to DISENGAGE when stepping on the brakes and slowing down. If it doesnt disengage, what you are experiencing occurs. Does it do it all the time or only when car reaches operating temperature ?.
