Did you remove the packing blocks out of pressure plate? sometimes they have them in there for shipping, also did you get the right throut bearing, ithink they have a long and short one. Is clutch in backwards?

    Is there a inspection cover on bottom of bellhousing? If there is have someone push down on clutch peddel, and you see if you can spin the clutch disc, or if trans is still out maybe you can go thru there and turn clutch disc. If it don't spin its not disengaging, you could have got a defective slave cyl.

Wont go into gear


this happens because the clutch plate is still spinning with the fly wheel. If you have just replaced the clutch it will be because the clutch plate is in the wrong way and the hub is hitting on the fly wheel bolts. If you haven't touched the clutch so far then you will have to check that the clutch slave cylinder is moving the throw out arm or if the pivot has broken off. IF that is ok then there is a case of the fly wheel and clutch plate contaminated with oil and sticking
together or lastly the lining of the clutch plate has become un secured (broken) and jamming on the flywheel/pressure plate. I am betting on the plate in the wrong way round.

My clutch seems to have gone out tonight. The clutch is very easy to push to the floor...and it pops back....there's no pressure at all. The clutch fluid is leaking from the hose. Could this be the...


it could be either the master cylinder or the slave cylinder,it could also be the clutch pressure plate check the master & slave cylinders first because if it's the pressure plate the gear box will have to be removed to replace the pressure plate, even if you are uncertain it is most likely cheaper to replace the master & slave cylinders than it would be to replace the pressure plate.....hope this helps......cheers.

How does clutch work


Your clutch is both complicated and simple ( confused? That's because there are many types and variations of clutches)
OK, I'll give you the simplest version.
When you step on the clutch pedal, it is either attached to mechanical linkage, a cable, or a master cylinder that works the same as the one for your brakes. Jeeps use a master cylinder.
The fluid pressure at the master cylinder pushes a slave cylinder on the bellhousing (just like the wheel cylinder on a drum brake...only difference is that a wheel cylinder has a piston on each end, a clutch slave has one piston) When you make the piston move, it pushes on a part called a clutch fork which is a simple lever...push on one end and the other end travels in the opposite direction. That lever is attached to a bearing (called a throwout bearing) that is positioned around the input shaft of the transmission, sliding back and forth on it. When the bearing is pushed against "fingers" on the clutch pressure plate assembly, it forces the actual plate to move back away from the clutch disc. The disc is normally held tightly sandwhiched between the plate and the flywheel by springs in the plate cover.
Further clamping force is sometimes applied by counter weights on the "fingers" that react to engine rpm. (depending upon clutch design)
So, when you step down on the pedal, you are moving the slave piston, the fork and the bearing which causes the clamping force on the disc to be relieved, allowing it to spin free and since it is connected to the input shaft of the transmission which is splined so the disc (also splined)can drive it. Bottom line is that when the disc is compressed between the flywheel and the pressure plate it turns the transmission gears, moving the car. When you push the clutch pedal down, it releases that pressure and no power goes into the transmission.
Jeep also uses an alternative design that eliminated the clutch fork but essentially everything else still works the same.

Shifter works when car is off, start car and then shifter won't go in gear. if i start vehicle in first with clutch pedal to floor, car starts going forward. mazda miata mx-5 just put new slave cylinder in...


The one item I would suspect is the through-out-bearing not completely disengaging the pressure plate from the fly wheel. If the vehicle is in neutral and you slowly depress the clutch and release it do hear a singing or whining sound? Since you cannot adjust the clutch any more the through-out-bearing is the component which moves the pressure plate from the fly wheel to stop the power from the engine to the transmission. It is difficult to shift when the engine is on because the fly wheel is still engaged and powering your transmission.

The clutch pedal is rock hard won't go in too gear checked the clutch master cylinder and thats ok, so do you know what the problem is.


Possible solution! Daewoo Lanos 98-99
Had the same problem suddenly the clutch pedal went rock hard!
The clutch was around 3 months old.
Mechanic checked - Master, Slave, Clutch Components, and inside the box, all looked okay.
Turned out the top arm of the clutch pivot rod had twisted, replaced pivot rod around AU$100.
Fixed Problem!

How do you replace a clutch bearing pressure plate? On a 1992 mazda navajo


You need to remove the transmission (and transfer case if its 4 wheel or all wheel drive) to access the clutch assembly. Be prepared to replace the clutch disk, pressure plate, thrust bearing, throwout bearing, and in your case since its a Ford/Mazda the slave cylinder and plastic line to the master cylinder. A very big job for the do-it-yourself-er.
