Im having a clutch cable or something to do with the clutch sometimes being hard/grinding but i am getting plenty of pressure from the clutch pedal has anyone had any clutch cable issues.


If the clutch operation feels smooth and normal with the usual amount of travel and free play then it probably is ok and the fault is inside the clutch housing, with the clutch components.

Difficult gear changes and gear crunching sometimes could be caused by dry and tight splines or grease/oil contamination of the friction material.

1994 mazda navajo manual transmission gears are grinding and hard to shift.any idea what is causing this? it has a 5 speed .


The clutch plate or clutch adjustment seems to be the most likely thing in that it is not disengaging fully. Check the adjustment. There should be about 1" play at the top of the pedal movement and then the clutch should start releasing about halfway down. The other thing it could be is worn gear linkages and joint bushes. Have someone move the gear lever and check for play along the gear change train from the gear lever to the gearbox selector input.

Hard time getting car in gear


Sounds like your clutch may be in need of a replacement. If you cut the engine off does it go into gear easily? Then it's not the linkage.

Hard to shift into first gear


Tighten clutch cable until the car would start to move when the clutch peddle is 50% depressed, Before you do that, with the clutch fully depressed and in 2nd gear, start the car and slowly let off the clutch. You may find that the clutch has to be released virtually all the way before the car moves. It should be at about that 50% I spoke about

Hard to Shift Gears?


How is the clutch adjustment?
Is it releasing fully?
If you have a hydraulic clutch....is the brake fluid level in the clutch master cyl beside the brake master cyl full?
If you have the cable clutch.....is there only 1/2 inch of play..... if you pull up on the cable at the transmission end of the cable?

Gear change is hard and crunching


Your clutch is most likely worn out, u are over traveling the clutch and causing the hard shift. This is not a fluid problem unless the clutch has allot of free play or goes to the floor..

Why it is difficult to engage the gear when the gear box is warm up.


This may be wear clutch related, if the clutch is starting to wear out past a certain point of clutch disk thickness the trans gears don't stop when you press the clutch in, this causes hard to shift issues like yours, one question does the clutch feel soft ot have to much play?
