im a little confused re clutch replacement normally in order to start a manual transmission car the clutch pedal needs to be pressed down all the way before the car will turnover . as you say it will start but you need to push down clutch am i right? but when you try to put it into gear grinding ?wont go in to gear yes is this whats hapinin?ok the way that these clutches work nowadays is that there is a system similar to brake system there is a resivoir for the oil and a slave cylinder that pushes the clutch throwout leaver so that the gears can be changed did you see a small cylinder that pushes against the clutch lever? does it have a hose coming from it ? this system needs to be bleed just like the brakes on your car . find the resivoir small resivoir open lid and fill with brake fluid now go under car and find slave cylinder it will be somewhere near the transmission and bellhousing there will be a hose attached there will also be a bleed nipple attached you need to open this a few turns and let it drip dont press clutch pedal when bleed screw is open it will bring air into system , you want to remove all the air in the system so get a friend to go into car and pump clutch pedal then hold it to the floor while its being held down you open bleed screw until clutch pedal hits the floor tighten bleed screw then tell friend to pump up again do this 5 or 6 times making shure clutch fluid level doesnt drop down too far keep topping it up with the fluid that squirts out while bleeding this way you dont waste fluid as well as keeping fluid from hitting the ground .anyhow after trying this slave cylinder bleeding proceedure .try to see if car will go into gear . also see that there is no adjustment on slave cylinder . also i hope that you put the clutch facing the correct direction flywheel side towards flywheel . let me know how you do with this project

SOURCE: clutch

the acuating cylinder for the clutch needs to be replaced. this explains why you ahve no resistance when you deprress the clutch peddle. when adjusted right you should have no more than 1-1 1/2 inches of free play in the clutch peddle. and since the car will be in gear with out the clutch being pressed tells me that the clutch itself is good. please rate this

check your shift linkages if the bushing is worn out you may have problems shifting or it could be a bad transmission

SOURCE: truck will start but shift indicator wont light up

Are you sure it wont take off in first gear? The indicator on the dash only shows what gear you put it in.

My truck scania r420 opticruise is stuck in 1st gear. I pushed it into neutral while it was off and now it cnt start its showing N 1 N on the dash. The clucth is stiff no air in it. How do i start it?


This is a problem with the clutch not fully releasing the force is coming the engine .Shift it with the engine off it will work better .
What you have here is a bad slave cylinder .
The master cylinder for the clutch is the one on the pedal the slave pushes the springs on the pressure plate in to release the pressure at the traffic light on pressure .
The problem with yours is the slave is stuck in the middle never full on or off .A clutch is like a light switch its on or its off .
You likely will have to remove the transmission to replace this part it sounds like its a concentric location inside the bell hoseing

94 ford ranger manual transmission goes into first gear and reverse just fine let off the clutch and the truck wont move.


part of a clutch job is removing the gearlever make sure the lever is secured properly and selects the gear correctly.
Orherwise your symptoms sound like a collapsed pressure plate or broken release bearing either defective part or something done wrong during installation of clutch

Manual clutch replacement


the clutch going to the floor and not going into gear sounds like the clutch wont disengage . could be lugging the engine down. could be low fluid or fluid leak or bad slave cylinder or clutch master cylinder

1990 Accord turns over always but sometimes wont start unless clutch is pumped???


Now that is spooky. The clutch would have no connection to the engine starting, only cranking.
Its possible the fuel pump relay is failing and for some reason either waiting or the vibration of pumping the clutch is getting it to work.
The relay should be under the dash near the pedals.
I would check fuel pump voltage when it fails to start.

Hi,. there is a problem with my clutch. it was working fine when i drove around but now when i tried to push the clutch down to take it into first gear it wont go all the way down therefore not letting me...


can you select gears with motor not running? ie dont need to use clutch to do this.
Is foot leaver jamming inside the car?
is clutch arm (or slave cyl) at bell housing jamming.
If above ok then looks like motor and clutch out time.

When starting, clutch down 1st gear turning key truck jumps forward, will start but need to be ready to take off in gear that started in. starts fine in neutral.but won't go into gear without grinding


1st check your clutch system, that is most probably where the issue is as the gearbox rarely ever gives issues

2nd check the oil for your gear box. the oil should help the gears as they move into action or move out.
