Problem with clutch and 1st gear only when car is warm

I'm wondering why my 1985 Corolla SR5 will shift into 1st gear w/o any problems when the car is cold, but after it warms up, it feels like the clutch is worn out("shakes, bucks" etc.)? This only happens in 1st gear.

The spring in the pressure plate is bad,and when it warms up is putting uneven pressure on the friction disc.The reason why it only occurs in 1st is that the input shaft is spinning from 2nd to 3rd and so on.In 1st from a stop it has stopped moving.

This is a problem with the clutch, it sounds like a probelm with the hydralics, It could have a leaking slave or master cyinder. If not you will have to replace the clutch

I would replace fluid and filter. At least the fluid. Old fluid has bad temperature range protection and the inter cooler doesn't help cool the lines much.

Hi! Shifting out of 1st gear is hard and sometimes sticks, have to almost stop to shift into second. I checked the linkage, fluid levels in both the tranny and clutch pedal. I have not checked the shift...


It sounds like a hydrallic clutch problem.If there's no external leak (clear fluid under the car or by your feet under the dash) then there could be an internal cylinder leak (when the plunger inside the cylinder no longer seals resulting in loss of hydrallic pressure).Fluid levels will be normal.This is common resulting in the shifter sticking in gear.

1985 fiero been having problems getting in gear. Now wont turn over starter. New starter didnt fix problem. Dont know if 2 problems are related. Can push start.


Have same car, same problems, easy solutions.

Getting into gear has been improved by putting in neutral with engine running to warm up fluid. The Fiero has very little room in the pedal area. I'm shifting a lot better with smaller shoes.

The problem with starting may well be related to the same issue. There is a neutral safety starting switch. If you're not pressing hard enough on the clutch - starter won't run. According to the Fierostore.com stock clutch pedals tend to bend. They sell a stronger replacement.

My Fiero has been starting just fine the last few days. The last time it didn't I was wearing boots.

I've almost always been able to get it to start using a booster battery, but Walmart's tester indicates that the battery and charging system are fine. It recommends tightening connections. I did this, but still had problems for a while.

Loud clanking noise in gear if the clutch is not engaged


Almost sounds like a throwout bearing problem. Either way, bring the car back and make them fix it. It will be covered under the warranty so dont let them try to convince you otherwise.

Hydraulic clutch grinding from 1st to 2nd - Toyota 1985 Pickup


Yes, your clutch might be worn and/or out of adjustment or the trans is worn. Your clutch may be fine also. Toyota's have a problem with there shifter bushings and seats. They brake and crack also causing shifting problems. And some times only one gear depending on the condition.If yours is broken,crack or damaged, you can find the parts from Toyota and there a whole lot cheaper than a clutch. Also I recommend adjusting the clutch if possible. Not all are adjustable. Check your clutch fluid.

1996 Corolla Auto Transmission problem


Hi. 2005 Corolla CE. It's normal. They tend to do this when upshifting form 1st to 2nd gear. No timing chain readjustment needed.

96 Corolla. Overdrive not working properly, if not engaging after 45mph constantly. If driving on the city, is normal, but not after 45mph, when the car is trying to engage overdrive in order to save gas and preserve the trans gears. If not able to get help at the dealership, find another one and explain them the situation.
