    From your general description, I would suspect one of two components. Either your clutch master cylinder has gone out on you, or the clutch slave cylinder has failed. Check the master cylinder fluid reservoir to make sure you have the proper level of fluid. If not you may get more life out of the clutch by adding and bleeding the system but that is only a temporary fix. This is a closed system so if the reservoir is low, then there is a leak somewhere that needs to be fixed.

Has the clutch ever been replaced? sounds also like it could be the clutch release bearing is bad, which then means just have a new clutch installed. that gives you another issue to look at, check the first ones first though. good luck

How do I know when my clutch needs replacing

Hello will feel the clutch slipping. As your driving along at a low speed ...accelerate quickly...If the RPM's go up faster than the vehicles moves forward...your clutch is slipping and needs further attention. A clutch will also produce a rather strong odor when it slips as it will generate a lot of heat.

If your vehicle starts and will not move forward at all....make sure the vehicle moves. While not running, in neutral..push it a few feet...should glide easily...if it doesn't find the wheel(s) that are binding...Is the emergency brake applied or jammed? Are one of the vehicles brakes jammed? If everything is turning smoothly and the engine starts and allows you to depress the clutch pedal and select a gear without a grinding noise... but will not move the vehicle forward, make sure the clutch is actually engaging by observing the linkage and clutch arm.

Squealing noise stops when i push in clutch pedal we were on the interstate and suddenly i had no clutch pedal we got off the street it was hard to get it out of gear i checked the fluid it was fine...

Sounds like a bad Throw Out Bearing.. Needless to say.. it has to be repaired.

Depending on mileage.. may as well replace the clutch/pressure plate.. and have he flywheel looked at.. change the tranny oil.. check the u joints.. rear end etc..

Best of luck!

I have a 1998 gmc Sierra standard 5 speed started running funny then just stopped moving starts good engine runs fine clutch engadges but when in gear now revs up as if it were in neutral Also before...

i think your clutch has worn out ,it needs a new clutch,the water noise is a air lock possibly so try topping the rad up some more and hopefully this will stop the noise but if engine isnt overheating then do not worry about it too much ,

I can turn on the wipers but they do not move and the motor has a grinding sound to it.

Well of course you could have stripped the worm grear in the wiper motor. In which case you would need a salvage yard replacement for the whole motor and gear assembly.

But are you sure the wiper arm did not must come loose on its shaft?
That usually goes first, and can easily just be retightened.
This is supposed to sort of act like a shear pin or clutch when the wipers get iced up or something.

Grinding Noise When Clutch Is Depressed, Lights Flicker

you may need to have your clutch cable adjusted ... it is most likely not releasing the clutch fully and grinding against the flywheel

1991 prelude drivetrain problem

Wow, that's weird! If the speedometer is moving, but you aren't, then yes, something in the axle is not connected to the wheel. Were there any weird noises or symptoms before this happened? Either the cv joint is completely shot (u should have heard noise when turning a long time before this) or the spline could be stripped, but that is something I haven't heard of. If the clutch was shot, the engine would rev, but speedo is connected to transmission, so the speedo would not work if the clutch didn't. Let me know if anything was going on before this happened, I have a 91 Prelude (2nd since 1994, love it). countrycurt0

1994 Integra RS front end noise?

Without hearing noises first hand it is very hard to diagnose.

Things to check from the description you gave:

- Heatshields/Exhaust
- Thow-out bearings will make noise depending on the clutch pedal being engaged/disengaged. The noise will come and go as you move the pedal in or release it.

I would rule out the CV joints if the noise happens while moving straight. CV joints will click while turning when they go bad.
