Replace them both, the clutch master cylinder and the slave cylinder. New clutch fluid, bleed the slave cylinder, and clutch should be back.

I have a 1998 Dodge Dakota 3.9 with a 5 speed. I am having difficulties with the clutch and am trying to figure out if it is the clutch needing replaced or if it is the hydraulics.


Bad hydraulics (leaking/spongy) and worn out clutch have opposite symptoms. If the clutch does NOT ENGAGE - get the vehicle moving - you probably need to replace the clutch and/or pressure plate.
If the clutch does NOT DISENGAGE - you can't get the transmission into gear, or there is difficulty or grinding when trying to shift between gears - your hydraulic system is not moving the clutch release arm far enough to disengage the clutch.

I have a 1996 Nissan Pulsar Q manual with clutch issues. I had both the clutch and the gear box replaced in 2013.


I suspect it has a hydraulic clutch - some hydraulic clutches share the brake reservoir for fluid. It sounds like there is a leak in the hydraulics for the clutch or the piston in the master cylinder for the clutch is allowing fluid to leak past it. Has the fluid in the brake reservoir been going down?
You may want to check the repair manual (buy a Haynes or Chilton at an auto parts store, or check your local library) to confirm what type clutch you have and the location of the components.

My gears are all locked up so i cant shift. i push the clutch in but i have to force my car into gear. i think its my clutch but i dont know how to fix it. What could be some possible problems and...


unfortunately, bad news, you cannot adjust your clutch as it is hydraulic.
Hydraulic clutches are adjusted with shims on the flywheel after it has been machined. This happens during a clutch change. You may have other problems like a hydraulic leak or a bad pressure plate, really the only way you can find out is by an inspection bya shop, or if your lucky enough to know someone ....handy

cheers...PK.

when you had the flywheels shaved it may have moved the pressure plate fingers to far from the throwout bearing

I have a 1994 saturn sl 1.9L with a 5spd that won't go into 1st gear. Everything goes smooth exept 1st gear. It doesn't even begin to go into gear.


Does it go easy into gear when the car is off? Sounds like your hydraulics are shot or it's time to replace the clutch because the pressure plate fingers are too worn to disengage the clutch completely.

As an alternative diagnostic. Shift into 2nd first and then bring it into neutral then let off the clutch, then press the clutch again and try first. Essential double clutch to see if you can go into first. If it still doesn't work then it's hydraulics or clutch. This was a check to see if the synchros are shot.

Clutch problem


I guess the clutch system must be a hydraulic one, check the clutch master cylinder and slave cylinder if they are functioning.
If they are thn theres a problem with the clutch pressure plate, if thts so , you will have to drop the gear box to replace it and its adviseable to replac e the pro-kit...consisting of Clutch pressure plate, clutch plate and release bearing.

Shifter cable disconnected


First of all you cant bleed a clutch unless it is hydraulic. I would say to replace the hydraulic box on the clutch. If this does not work it is probably feasible you need a new trans.
