Hi, depending on the model, you may have a mechanical clutch. if there's a clutch master and slave cylinder under the hood, its hydraulic. the main issue here is that your pressure plate. you will need to replace this. this will fix the issue.

2004 dodge ram 1500 with the 3.7L V6 5 speed manual. The truck drives and shifts fine but after driving for a while it won't be able to shift into or out of any gear.


the reason for hard shifting and selection when running is that the clutch shaft ( input shaft) is still turning even though the clutch pressure plate is released
it can be from oil/grease on the fly wheel /pressure plate face causing it to stick when hot
it may be from sticking clutch plate on the splines binding when hot
or it could be a dry spigot bush or failed bearing in the end of the crankshaft that positions the clutch shaft
check the pedal height adjustment and the position it is from the floor when starting to engage
It may be adjustment under the dash

Can clutch pedal be adjusted?


The first thing I would do is to replace the master cylinder as the compensating port may be blocked causing this problem. It is an indication of a worn clutch but having this problem at my expense I learnt to do the cheap fix first as clutch kits are worth about 5 times the price of a m/cyl.. Normally hydraulic clutches are not adjustable

Car sometimes wont start even if just turned off replaced starter motor and ignition barrel


Try starting it with the shift lever in neutral, if it starts, the transmission switch is bad (automatics), or with the key to start position move the shift lever thru the range of gears. If a stick shift and the clutch pedal must be pressed down, the clutch switch may be going out if intermittent starts

5 speed Jeep Liberty clutch barely engages when vehicle first start.


If your clutch is hydraulic uses a master cyl. and a slave cyl. It sounds like the slave cyl. but could be both.

I have a 1989 ford ranger five speed manual 2.3 liter 4 cyl i am haveing problems gettin it to go into gear and the clutch is also in the floor but if i turn the truck off it will go into gear and if i...


do this...

make sure the reservoir is full
engine off and pump the clutch pedal slowly about 5-10 times
while holding the pedal down have assistant open the bleeder on the master located in the trans

if you get a good squirt then your concern is the master
if no squirt then replace the slave

neither job is quick but the slave is 1/2 time

I have a 89 toyota pickup 4 speed. When I'm stopped at a stop light, and let out on the clutch it seems like it has lost pressure. When I'm shifting down the road it shifts fine. I checked the fluid and it...


this sounds like the clutch slave is goin out, this unit is on the outside of the transmission. Possibly losing pressure!! Your transmission does not use transmission fluid, but instead gear oil. Have the following checked:
1. Clutch Slave (possibly worn)-this will cause soft or hard clutch pedal feel, slipping clutch, unintended clutch release, hard gear engagement, no/insufficient clutch movement.

*2. Clutch pedal Mounting Plate (possibly cracked)-this will cause improper gear engagement, hard gear engagement, soft pedal feel, insufficient clutch movement.

*this plate is located above the clutch pedal itself, apply pressure on the pedal with one hand while inspecting the plate for fatigue cracks(use a bright flashlight). This is very common on these models. This problem will eventually get worst and most mechanics never figure this out.

1991 audi 100 brakes hang up


I believe that it is probably sticky brake calipers. This is a much more common problem and is more likely. You could test this by jacking up your front end and supporting the vehicle safely. Then apply the brakes, then let off of them and try to spin your wheels manually.
Calipers should only cost about $40.00 each or so.
Sometimes they especially like to stick when the pads are worn and/or the rotors are out of spec.

Good luck. Let me know if this solves your problem.
