Question about 1993 Jeep Wrangler

1 Answer

What part of a clutch am I supposed to replace, the disc or what?

I started up my car and I had to push the clutch all the way to the floor and it wouldn't pop back up, it did this 2 days ago for about 2 days. But for the past two days it was fine. I was trying to leave work and I had to push the clutch to the floor to start it then when aI tried to shift it into 1st gear it wouldn't budge. Its very very hard to shift. Meanwhile the clutch is still syuck to the floor so even when I did get it into gear it stalled out because the clutch was still down.

Slimm234, it sounds like your slave cylinder is in need to be replaced! It's the small device with the reservior on top of it next to the brake master cylinder on the driver side of your firewall under the hood! First check to see that it is full of fluid! If it isn't, fill it and you may need to bleed the air out of it! Our clutches are hydraulic! If there is air in the lines you won't have the pressure to release the clutch. If it is full of fluid, then chances are you will need to change the slave cylinder! This is always the best place to start as it costs much less than having your transmission removed to replace your clutch!

I hope this helps,

Question when u tighten. Your pressure. Plate are them fingers suppose to move in or supposed. To be out alittle

The "fingers" are you describe them, are what the release bearing presses on to remove the pressure from the clutch disc when you press the clutch pedal in. As you tighten the clutch disc, the fingers will move in. And with a new clutch disc, they will move in fairly far. As the clutch disc wears, the fingers will get higher and higher, eventually to the point of clutch slippage and thus needed replacement. So don't be too concerned if they seem to be almost flat....they still have enough room to release the clutch disc.

Clutch not engaging

Well, it would shift easily with engine off, because the transmission input shaft is not turning. Engine running and clutch engaging good, the input shaft would again be stationary and allow smooth shifting.
What you have to determine is if the clutch disc or pressure plate is bad (a new clutch is needed), or if the pedal hydraulic system has a malfunction. When you push the pedal down, a rod from the top of pedal pushes into the clutch master cylinder bolted to the firewall under the hood. This cylinder has a reservoir filled with brake fluid. When the rod forces fluid from the clutch master down a steel line and into the clutch slave cylinder down on the transmission bell housing, the hydraulic pressure forces a plunger from the slave cylinder to extend and push the clutch fork lever a small amount, enough to force the clutch release bearing (aka throw-out bearing) against the pressure plate. This relieves pressure on the clutch disc and input shaft becomes stationary for easy shifting.

1993 mazda mx6 car was fine has new clutch pushed clutch in stay on floor started pumping it gain compression. Then after a while will loose compression again?

If the shop that installed the clutch also replaced the hydraulic system, I would take it back to them.
If they only replaced the clutch disc and cover, the master cylinder or slave cylinder may have failed.

I have a 1990 Ford F-150 ext cab 4X4 larriat XLT and my clutch is going all the way to the floor, but it is not slipping out of gear when i drive, i just have to push it to the floor to get it to go into...

It sounds like the clutch needs replaced or the clutch cable. You can try readjusting the cable but more than likely it has stretched to far and needs to be replaced.

I own a 1993 Nissan Pathfinder 5 speed. Yesterday I went to start my truck so I depressed the clutch peddle all the way so I can start the truck and in maybe the last inch of travel I heard a grinding...

No sorry to be the bearer of bad news but i think the fingers on the clutch are worn to excess and when the clutch is depressed fully the bearing is going through the fingers of the clutch causing the noise you can hear .Eventualy it will need a new clutch which is not expensive if you do it yourself

Clutch pedal too close to floor

Hello Patrick.
Check the fluid level in the reservoir for your clutch.
The clutch in your vehicle is operated by a hydraulic piston in the master cylinder that pushes fluid through a line to another piston (slave cylinder) which pushes on the clutch release.
If you have a fluid leak in the system it will allow the fluid level to drop and there won't be enough to push the slave cylinder.
You could also have a worn clutch disc.
When filling the master cylinder use brake fluid only. Anything else will destroy the rubber seals inside and all will need to be replaced.
I hope this leads you to a good repair.

Thank you for using FixYa.

2000 Toyota Clutch replacement

Whenever you have additional floor mats in the vehicle, the clutch pedal does not go to the floor. This, in turn, prevents the clutch release mechanism from releasing the clutch disc fully from the flywheel. This causes premature clutch disc wear. I would agree that you need a clutch replacement.
The replacement is pretty straight forward, as long as your guy has the ability to support & hold the engine assembly while the transmission is removed.
No big mysteries on the clutch replacement.
