Why won't my 2009 Ford Mustang V6 go into gear after installing new clutch?

Installed new clutch kit, (flywheel, slave cylinder, pilot bearing) And now I have no clutch pedal after installing everything. A side note, the hydraulic assist elbow on the top driver side of the transmission did pop off when i first tried to press the clutch (as a result of not installing the elbow correctly with the press pin) Re-installed correctly and refilled brake fluid reservoir, as it had lost a good amount of fluid from the elbow coming off. Also, the clutch won't let me go into gear when the engine is running however when it is off it does go into gear, I am able to go into gear and start the car in gear as well, but thats not normal of course, any ideas?

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.

I just finished putting on a new gear box and clutch kit for and when i started it and put it on gear it was so low and soft and a loud noise after that... I just want to know why did it do that pls?


So you installed a new transmission and a whole new clutch kit? Did the kit include the pressure plate, clutch, throw out bearing and slave cylinder? Did you bleed the slave cylinder? The low and soft pedal is a clear sign that there is air in the hydraulic system. The loud noise after that tells me you're either grinding the gear trying to shift or there is a problem inside the transmission itself. If you installed everything correctly and torqued all the bolts correctly in the clutch assembly and transmission, then try bleeding the slave cylinder again, sometimes air gets trapped in the cylinder and it's hard to get out, If you let the clutch master cylinder run dry while you either had the clutch apart or while you were bleeding the clutch, then you have to start from scratch and re-bleed the whole system.

I install new flywheel and clutch kit on my car. I can shift a gear when the car is off. If I start a car I can not shift a gear. What is wrong?


The clutch is not releasing properly for some reason.
A number of things can cause this. If, for example, the master cylinder is not bled properly, there will be air in the fluid and as a result, the slave cylinder will not have enough travel.
Another possibility is a bad pilot bearing, which is situated in the end of the crankshaft. It is also not impossible in some cases to install the clutch plate backwards, which will definitely cause problems.

Clutch started squealing on my f350 then hard to engage in gear


The transmission will need to be removed. Probably will need a new clutch disc, pressure plate, release bearing and pilot bearing. The flywheel should be removed and taking to a machine shop to have them resurface it.

DYI Clutch change, now transmission won't fit with the new clutch kit??


While its seams you don't see where you have to make caution,
So Now !Put back fry-wheel back on crankshaft then just check two thinks ......Check 1: see clutch plate there is center gropes on it so Mach on gear shaft center gropes.(I mean just put clutch plate in to transmission shaft & check if it`s center gropes are same match) If yes then pull back clutch plat & then refit under pressure plate on fly-wheel. Now come to Check 2 ! Mow when you fit it you must do centering of clutch plat to fix on gear shaft, So How you can do ?
There is two ways 1 is you have same shaft designed road or wood piece which help to center it!
While 2 ways is take big screw driver & put in the hole & do centering by looking it where center come just tight pressure plat bolts to hold the center .
So when you did like this you ll fix transmission (gear box) easily in a mints ....Just simple like this.
So best of luck & if you have any problem just mail me tallnsmartman@yahoo.com......

Are you sure you installed clutch plate facing right way? They are either stamped or have a tag says "flywheel side". Or might have wrong clutch kit.

Clutch problems


Hi bosslady15,

First of all I think I should say that clutches do not make grinding noises - but transmission gears do.
However, a clutch that is not disengaging properly can make the gears grind when trying to shift from one gear to the next. Also a common source of noise is the clutch throwout bearing. This will make a "grinding" or "growling" noise any time the clutch pedal is depressed. In either of these cases, the only solution is to replace the clutch, throwout bearing, pressure plate and pilot bushing. These all usually come in a clutch kit. If you have an hydraulic clutch with an internal slave cylinder it is recommended to replace the slave cylinder as well and also the flywheel on on vehicles. I'm sorry I cannot be more specific because you did not mention what type of vehicle we are talking about here.

How to install a clutch kit on my 1994 mitsubishi mighty max


Disconnect the battery, disconnect the Hydraulic Line from the Slave Cylinder, Remove the Starter (2 bolts, 2 wires. Bolts are 14mm, 1 wire is 12mm, 1 plugs in), Remove the Driveshaft(s) (4 12mm bolts) Remove the 6 bolts from the bellhousing (4 are 14mm, 2 are 10mm)
Remove the bolt from the Transfer Case Mount, 12mm (only if it's a 4WD, if it's 2WD this doesn't apply), remove the 2 bolts that hold the Transmission Mount to the Crossmember (12mm or 14mm, it varies)
Slide the transmission back on the crossmember, away from the engine, I recommend running a ratchet strap across the frame to balance the transmission.
Remove the Pressure Plate from the Flywheel (Six 10mm bolts), Inspect the Pilot Bearing (if it needs replaced, you'll need to remove the Flywheel which is held on with six 18mm bolts, drive out the old bearing and drive in the new one, reinstall the flywheel, using Threadlocker on the bolts, torque the bolts to 100 ft lbs) Install the new clutch disc and Pressure Plate, with the centering tool inserted through the disc into the pilot bearing. Use thread locker on the pressure plate bolts and torque them to 20 ft lbs. Remove the centering/alignment tool after you've bolted it together
Remove old Throw Out bearing from input shaft on the transmission and slide the new one on. Slide the Transmission forward (make sure the input shaft slides into the pilot bearing, don't force the transmission into place or you could damage the clutch disc or break the input shaft) Torque the Bellhousing Bolts to 40 ft lbs (4 14mm bolts), Torque the 2 10mm bolts to 14 ft lbs, Install the Starter (torque bolts to 23 ft lbs), Reconnect Hydraulic Line to Slave Cylinder. Torque Transmission Mount Bolts to 30 ft lbs.
Reinstall Driveshafts, torque bolts on flange/yoke to 40 ft lbs. Fill Clutch Master Cylinder with DOT-3 Brake & Clutch Fluid, Open Bleeder Screw on Slave Cylinder and bleed the air out of the system, close bleeder screw.
Reconnect the wires to the Starter, Reconnect the battery.

Replaced master cylinder in clutch in an attempt to stop the car sticking in gear and moving when foot taken of brake. It still moves while the clutch is still depressed and needs brake to stop...


Sounds like a worn-out clutch plate or broken/damaged throw-out bearing or pressure plate. You need to replace the clutch - including the pressure plate, throw-out bearing, pilot bearing, and I also recommend a new slave cylinder. (Especially since you have allready replaced the master cylinder.) You may want to weigh the pros and cons of having your flywheel machined or just replacing it with a "Remanufactured " flywheel.

86 ford mustang 5.0 ho motor. just installed a clutch. wont go into gear. the cable has been adjusted. is there a slave cylinder adjustment too? or is the slave cylinder not workin properly


My '86 5.0 was a cable controlled clutch no slave or master cylinders. Make sure the throwout lever is seated properly, and check for movement when the clutch pedal is depressed. It should move at least .75 inches when depressed. Also make sure the bell housing is mating up to the engine completely and all bolts are tight. If all these things are ok it could be an improperly installed or wrong throwout bearing. I hope this helps. I remember what a pain that job was when I did mine esp. that screwy cable pulley thing attached to the clutch pedal. Which also may be the problem. Good luck.
