Did you just replace the clutch? If you have not there is a few things that will cause this, first thing is if its hydrolic clutch slave cyl. is stuck depressed holding clutch in disengaged position, secound thro out bearing is caught in fingers of pressure plate holding clutch in disengaged position, and third input shaft on trans. has broke off at spleens in clutch disc.

Hi,2002 cavalier now the clutch pedal goes in to start the vehicle and once the pedal is released all the way car barely moves. i thought the slave or master cylinder could be shot


I would think that the clutch itself is shot. If it was the slave cylinder or the master cylinder, you would not be able to get the car into gear when the engine is running. If it goes into gear fine, but just doesn't want to move....it means your clutch is not griping.

I have a 1993 honda accord, manual transmission, and it wont go into gear


Test it:

If it will go into gear when the engine is not running.

If yes, then test to see if it goes into gear when the engine is running; if no it is due to the clutch not releasing when you push on the pedal. In my experience this is due to problems with the hydraulic clutch. Check to see that the clutch reservoir Is at the proper level and fluid clean looking.

If it is not full it is likely due to a leak in your clutch system; Likely at the clutch slave cylinder at the clutch linkage to the pressure plate. Fill it and have someone push the clutch pedal for you and look for the leak to show up. If there is not leak and the fluid is full, the clutch disk may be at end of useful life.
Good luck

Clutch pedal goes down , but does not seem to release far enough to change gears, im thinking it has something to do with the line that goes from pedal to ******, that part on ****** does not seem tig


i dont see what car you have, but most clutches are hydraulic these days. under the hood on the firewall there should be a small fluid cylinder called a clutch slave cylinder. it should be full of brake fluid. when it leaks, the pedal feels strange and it will not release the clutch. usually when the fluid leaks it it due to a failed slave cylinder on the transmission.

1999 toyota rav4 wont go into first gear, i just repaced the clutch,clutch slave cylinder and clutch master clutch


Did you bleed the slave cylinder? Also, check pedal free play (about 1/2 inch) and pedal height (not sure on your Rav, you'll have to check with Toyota).
Only first gear, or difficulty going into all gears?

1994 Ford Ranger, turned into parking lot and downshifted to neutral. Felt like my clutch pedal softened and then could't shift into any gear without gears clashing. When I turn off engine I can shift...


look under your dash driverside at your clutch pedal and there should be an arm that goes through the firewall and to your pedal if it is disconected reconect it if not then check your clutch fluid

After being stored clutch willnot engage


do you mean wont disengage? does the pedal feel normal, or like its pushing nothing?cant put it in gear? or goes in gear but wont move?. if you put it in gear but car wont move, the clutch is toasted. if you can put it in gear with the engine off, but not when its running, check the clutch master fluid. if its low or out, then the slave or master is leaking and you will need to replace both. if the clutch arm IS working, and the pedal feels normal, sometimes you can put in gear, and start it with the clutch pedal depressed and drive it, and goose the gas to "break the disc loose"

No pressure clutch pedal goes straight to the floor 1988 holden r


If hydraulic actuated mechanism, loss of fluid, defective master cylinder or slave cylinder at the clutch. Missing pin or other part between slave cylinder and clutch arm. Loose or broken slave cylinder mounting. Missing pin or broken part between pedal and master cylinder. If mechanical linkage, look for broken components or missing pins at moving joints. If you tried to shift into gear with engine running, you may have damaged the transmission gears.
