Question about Cars & Trucks
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?
You need to bleed the the slave cylinder how you do this there is a bleeder valve on the slave cylinder first pump the the clutch pedel 5 times then open the bleeder valve on the slave cyl while holding the clutch pedal to the floor repeat process until you get clutch pedal pressure

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.
