Check the fluid reservoir. If it's low on fluid, fill the reservoir and pump the clutch pedal until you feel resistance from the clutch. If the reservoir is full, and the clutch isn't disengaging, you likely have a bad release bearing or broken linkage. If it is a bearing problem you're most likely into a clutch replacement.

Testimonial: "was told it does not have a fluid reservoir. with ignition off, can move gears. However with engine running, clutch pressed, will not slip into gears. If you put it into gear, then start, transmissiion will surge forward (grinding noise). Is it possible that clutch cable might be broken?"

Hi i drive a 03 ford transit when you press the clutch pedal it feels fine but you cant select gears only 5 gear when you try to get first gear its like the clutch is not being pressed


Your clutch disc may be worn out, when the disc wears completely down the pressure plate goes over center and that causes the clutch to slightly engage when the pedal is depressed and you grind gears, most clutches last about 75000 miles.

Miata clutch


With engine off, does the shifter get gears easily?
If so, it could be your hydraulic clutch. Check the fluid level on the clutch master cylinder's reservoir-on the firewall. If it is low, add brake fluid to it. If it was dry, you will probably have to bleed the hydraulic clutch down at the slave cylinder on the transmission bell housing.
When clutch pedal is pressed, the clutch master cylinder will force fluid down the line to the small slave cylinder. There, a small plunger is forced out (about an inch or less) from the slave cylinder, and pushes the clutch fork forward. The fork causes the clutch inside the bell housing to operate. Look for this movement of the slave cylinder pushing the clutch fork while someone presses down or pumps the clutch pedal. With the engine off, of course.

Clutch is engaged even when not pressed


Its possible the clutch disc is worn out, or something is not releasing in the hydraulic system.
Can you disconnect the slave cylinder and check the movement of the disc ?

Gears are all moving without the clutch car does not move on any gear 1991 honda civic breeze


When you said without clutch I'm assuming you mean w/out clutch pedal pressed down. Assuming that, and you have the trans in gear with foot off clutch pedal, and vehicle will not move then it sounds like the clutch disc or pressure plate is worn out. These parts wear out just like brake pads or even the bottom of your shoes. Once it's done they have to be replaced.

I was driving on the reberse gear of my car on the very steep ramp but wasnt able to get it up after some time i tried the starting the car the car get starts in any gear even without pressing the clutch...


The sounds like two problems, first is starting an any gear means the neutral safty switch is bad the car should never start unless you have the clutch pedal down, next is the car will not move an any gear, this is due to a bad clutch, its burnt out and so its not connecting with the flywheel, the clutch needs replacing. hope this is helpful.

I have a 2001 gmc sierra 2wd 5.3 engine starts for 2 seconds and shuts down any help would be great thank you


THERE IS SOMETHING ABOUT THE CLUTCH ON THE SIERRA THAT IF DOUBLE PUSHED DOWN IT ACTS LIKE A CHOKE. CANNOT QUITE REMEMBER. JUST LEAVE IT OUT OF GEAR AND DO NOT PRESS THE CLUTCH. THEY FLOOD. i KNOW THIS SOUNDS STUPID. I HAD ONE ONCE AND AFTER ABOUT SIX MONTHS IT STARTED DOING IT. ITS SOMETHING TO DO WITH THE CLUTCH AND EXCELERATOR AND HOW YOU PRESS THEM. IT MIGHT BE YOU DO NOT TOUCH THE EXCELERATOR AT ALL JUST THE CLUTCH. I CANNOT REMEMBER HAVE A FIDDLE WITH DIFFERENT WAYS OF TRYING TO START THE CAR. CLUTCH DOWN ECCELERATOR DOWN CLUTCH OFF ECCELERATOR OFF. OR EVEN DOUBLE THE CLUTCH TO STOP THE CHOKE. ITS SOMETHING LIKE THAT. PHONE THE DEALER THEY WILL KNOW IN THE WORK SHOP. SAY A SILLY WOMAN SAID IF YOU LIKE. LET ME KNOW.
