Clutch not disengaging when stopped at a stop sign for a period o

2002 Dodge Diesel 6 sp HO clutch is not disengaging when stopped at a stop light for a period of time. The last few days I have had problems with my clutch at signal lights when I have to wait a little longer than usual to start moving again......I can not then even get it out of gear and it starts jumping ahead. I checked the fluid in the hyrdaulic brakes reservoir and it is up to par. I checked underneath and there are no leaks coming out from anywhere.

    Polarcycle....can you tell me if this is inside or outside the bellhousing?

  • chilcotin Mar 25, 2009

    That was the problem...and we got it fixed. Could have done it myself easily if I had been at home where my tools are to use. It was the bottom one but they said it all had to be replaced.

    thanks again for your help.

It is either your clutch master bleeding down, or your slave cylinder is leaking. Should be able to check inside the truck for a leak from behind the clutch master, the slave is by the trans.

    It should be located outside the trans, but not 100% on that. It sounds like you need a new clutch master cylinder if you don't see any leaks. Just be sure to put the truck in neutral before you come to a stop.

2002 toyota celica clutch is there an adjustment or is it hydraulic?it also smells like burning clutch?

its a hydraulic clutch. the burning smell could be a sign that the fluid in the master cylinder is low and there isn't enough pressure being applied to the flywheel, causing the clutch to slip. if the clutch disengages at near the end of the pedals "throw", as you disengage the pedal, than its a sign your clutch plate needs to be replaced. but to me it just sounds like a hydraulic pressure issue.

A/C kicks off and recirc light comes on

AC clutch is going to the dogs. Or the high pressure switch is giving it up. This is assuming AC belt is not slipping. Also check the system charge as it may need recharging.

On a 1985 Ford F250 diesel, with the 4 speed

I would replace fluid and filter. At least the fluid. Old fluid has bad temperature range protection and the inter cooler doesn't help cool the lines much.
