If it has a hydraylic clutch and not a cable then this could just need bleeding or a new slave and maybe a master cylinder this can be checked easily on the gearbox where the clutch lever is there is a rod that goes into the slave cylinder or if it is a cable then that will be there in staed of the slave cylinder, get someone to push the clutch pedal down then check the movment hold that down and make sure the clutch lever travels about 1"stays out.if it does not then theres a fault, you can bleed this of air and if that does not work then then there is a fault in either of the cylinders.If there is this movment in the clutch arm and it does hold out then there is a fault in the clutch cover,bearing or damaged folk which may mean removal of the gearbox.

Ford ranger was way too full of trams fluid so it wasn't shifting well what kind of damage will that do if left for too long and driven hard


If it is so full that the valve body is submerged in fluid your shift points will not be correct and you could burn out clutch packs if you are getting fluid in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Hard shifting trans. in and out of gear while driving hard knock and jerks whats the likely cause


Ask a mechanic's shop to see if your clutch packs are going out. It is quite possible, as I know my Chevy cavalier is doing the same thing, though I am nearly 100% sure it is clutch packs, I'm not kind to the poor thing.

It sounds as though either the throw out bearing or pressure plate are bad. The grinding makes me want to lean towards the pressure plate.

Goes into neutral and then shifts hard into 1st on slowdown


It sounds like your input clutch seals are rolling. Is the check engine light on. It could also be the pressure control solenoid could be causing the problem aswell

1998 ford ranger is a pain to get into first


If this has the original clutch componets and a lot of hard wear due to city driving or 150000 miles and higway driving you are in need of replacing the clutch assembly including the throwout bearing which has the slave cylinder incorporated with that part. To test this start by doing this test with the engine off. Pump the clutch pedal about 25 times. Start the engine and shift into 1st. If it shifts easily the slave cylinder is bad

Hyundai Accent 2000 When clutch is depressed gears crunchy.


how many miles have you driven the car sence it came out of storage? you said it sat for 6 years it could be rust on fly wheel or pressure plate, that would make it shift like you said, because the clutch plate is either sticking to the fly wheel or pressure plate. when it shifts hard that means the clutch is not releacing all the way most likely because of the rust. i would just drive it and see if it comes out of it. it shoud not take long maybe 50 to 100 miles more or less. also i would chg. trans oil, setting that long moisture could have got in there, you know what they say about oil and water. also if it has a cable for clutch chk. see if it's hanging up to. setting that long rust becomes a big factor. hope this helps.

2000 cavalier clutch pedle goes to floor when pushed and stays there, clutch not working no pressure


You are going to have to replace the master and slave cylinders for the hydraulic clutch, the seals have failed in the slave, but from past experience they should always been replaced as a pair.
