Question about Cars & Trucks
My camper van has been sat on drive since November, parked up in first gear. Tried to reverse without success. Have adjusted clutch cable this did not help. The gear stick goes into gear whilst engine is switched off. Will NOT if engine is running. Assuming it may be surface rust, I tried putting in to gear whilst engine was off. De-clutching and starting engine. engine, the vehicle lurched forwards. Any advise would be appreciated. Frank

This may very well be the shifting linkage assembly which may have gotten bent at some time. You can adjust this yourself by removing the center console and making the adjustment there. You also may contact anyone other than a dealer to install the new shifting linkage mechanism. The cost for this part is anywhere from $ 175 - 285.00. Good luck.

It's not the clutch, it is the clutch slave cylinder. Check the fluid level in the clutch master cylinder and you will see that it will be empty. The problem is the trans has to be removed to replace it.

Had a recent similar problem. Fortunately, my replacement cable is adjustable. As the new cable stretched, I had to take a crowbar to the the throwout lever next to the battery and lever it back while pulling off the cable (towards the battery). I then lifted the fuse box (look out for the 10mm plastic nut that holds it in on the side by the driver's side fender) on the drivers side right in front of the windshield to reach down and pull the cable up enough to reach the adjustor. When it is high enough, release the locknut and turn the adjusting nut upwards about 4 turns (both nuts on my cable were 17mm and a "stubby" is handy but not necessary. Grab the end by the battery and, making sure it is seated on the groove on the transmission, pry the lever again with the crowbar and reseat tg
he cable end in the lever. I have had to readjust the cable twice more before it settled in a comfortableplace, but once you get the hang of it, it only takes about 10 minutes.
Hope this is helpful.

What you describe sounds very much like the clutch is failing to disengage.
Fluid level being fine and no leaks under the car is good, but doesnt mean there isnt something wrong with either the master cylinder, slave cylinder, or the associated parts.
Highly unlikely there is a fault with the flywheel or clutch as failures with these would normally give no drive in any gear.
