Question about 2005 Kia Rio

1 Answer

Was told it does not have a fluid reservoir. With ignition off, can move gears. However with engine running, clutch pressed down, will not go into gears. However, if you put it into gear, then start, transmission is engaged. Is it possible that the clutch cable might be broken?"

SOURCE: won't go into gear to drive. may be transmission?

If the clutch has never been changed most likely it is that. The way you can check it is by removing the transmission and looking at the clutch disc. It could be transmission syncros but I am willing to bet you just need a new clutch.

Clutch fluid


The clutch hydraulic system may be low on fluid, but I doubt it needs to be replaced. If the system is low it could also have air pockets. Pressing on the clutch pedal may not be moving the actual clutch in the transmission.

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.

Will not go into gears even if pressing down on clutch


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.

Where is the clutch fluid refill located on a 1998 toyota rav4. I found the brake fluid reservoir, but am not seeing a reservoir for clutch fluid. Any help


If you look at the drivers side of the brake fluid reservoir you should see a rubber hose that feeds to the clutch master cylinder. The clutch master cylinder is kept full via the brake fluid reservoir.

You must understand you have a clutch operated by hydraulic fluid. It uses brake fluid as the hydraulic fluid. If air gets into the system it is bad, because fluid doesn't compress like air does. When you press down the clutch pedal, you are forcing brake fluid to go down a small line to a small cylinder near your transaxle. The fluid is under pressure from the pedal to mechanically move a lever inside the tranny that allows clutch action (shifting gears) to occur. See?
So air got in because you must have a leak in your clutch hydraulic system. It is a sealed system, and is composed of a clutch master cylinder (mounted on the firewall under the hood, just in front of your clutch pedal) and a line from this clutch master cylinder to a smaller "slave cylinder" down on the bell housing that is between the engine and the transaxle. This slave cyl. is the small cylinder I spoke of above that is near the transaxle.
That is all there is to the hydraulic part of the clutch. So the mechanic added fluid at the master cylinder at the reservoir, and then bled the system down at the slave cylinder. If air got in- it had to be leaking somewhere. Once you get the leak stopped, the problem should go away.

Clutch pedal goes up and down feels very loose but wont let me select a gear


Can you put it in gear with the engine off? You could have a broken clutch fork, failed master/slave cylinder, hydrolic leak, or a busted throw-out bearing. If the clutch fluid is full you know you don't have a leak. Some Fords use the brake fluid reservoir for the clutch master cylinder. If you can see your slave cylinder, have someone push the clutch while you look for movement. If it moves about one inch then you'll be taking the transmission out to replace the clutch and/or throw-out bearing.

the slave cylinder for the clutch has lost pressure or has gone bad, don't panic!! not yet, pump the clutch about a hundred times, i'm not kiddin! sometimes it happens,you have a hydraulic slave cylinder clutch. they loose pressure if not used often, after you've pumped it 29times look under the driverside door towards motor to see if fluid is dripping down,, if not,, keep pumping until the clutch comes up;;;FEEL PRESSURE WHEN YOU'RE PUSHING CLUTCH IN hope this helps!!

Well, there is only one thing I can think of in your situation. Your pressure plates just simply are not creating enough pressure to allow the gears to engage. Either you have a defective clutch and it needs to be replaced, or possibly just needs a ton of adjustment. When you put it in 1st gear while engine is off, then start it and take off that works b/c there is enough pressure to keep the gears from starting to move when not already moving. However when they are already moving, there is just not enough pressure to stop them from turning, not even long enough to shift. Have you tried forcing it into 2,3, or 4 while driving without the clutch? As long as you achieve the correct RPM's your transmission should be able to do so.

moselecm, Audi's transmissions are known for very late clutch engagement, so that part is normal - they're built that way and are not adjustable. To be sure it is really slipping due to wear and not just unfamiliarity, put the car in fifth gear at about 30mph and FLOOR the gas. If it's going to slip, that's when it will slip.

As for the fluid, it shares a reservoir with the brake fluid reservoir - take a look there at the fluid - what you see in there will be the condition that both the brakes and clutch are operating under.
