The clutch is fine,if it was bad it wouldn't work period. The hotness probably doesn't matter either. Is the flywheel stock or machined? The distance to the flywheel will be greatly reduced if machined. On a Porche,always use a new one. You can add washers or whatever to give it a little more push if you already machined the flywheel. That should fix the problem.As far as the last dude said, there's no way to put a clutch in that fast. You need to disassemble the entire drive line to replace it. Special tools are required.

2003 Porsche Carrera 4 will not go into any gear with motor running. With the engine off I can shift through the gears just fine. It feels like the clutch is not fully disengaged.


You can test the clutch hypothesis. Carefully put the car in gear for a safe direction, then depress the clutch and turn over the engine. If the car lurches, then the clutch is not working. In this case, check the linkage to the clutch, or if yours is hydraulic, check the fluid level in the clutch master cylinder. If the cylinder is low, then don't stop by just filling it, you want to find out where the fluid went. Look for leaks - especially around the clutch slave cylinder.
If on the other hand your engine it starts with the transmission in gear and the clutch down without lurching, then try letting the clutch out slowly. With any luck you have it running and in gear. See what happens next. Good Luck!

Having some problems getting into gears. sometimes it shifts fine, other times it does not want to go into gear. seems to be getting worse. if i turn the vehicle off, i can usually shift it into gear....


So the clutch isnt didengageing? Check the inside firewall is there fluid on the pole going into the cylender? if so the master cyl is bad, check the slave for leaks also, and yes there is a nipple down there to bleed it it gravity bleeds, so fill it up and open the bleeder untill no air comes out, BUT MAKE SHURE you dont let the fluid container run out or you will be starting over :)

Ok i have a 2000 ford ranger has high milage but runs fine until the other day. got off the freeway and would not let me shift out of 5th. so u pushed clitch in and coasted to gas station and stopped it....


Hello Blue, In order to ease your mind some the slave cylinder is inside the bell housing and it will not be in a clutch kit but needs to be replaced and when you have replaced the clutch assembly and slave cylinder,I recommend using DOT5 brake fluid which has a higher boiling point than DOT3 to bleed the system.

Get the clutch slave cylinder and master cylinder looked at.One of the 2 has failed.If the pedal goes to the floor or is very loose,this is very likely the cause.Not an expensive fix.Hope this helps

Wont shift into gear


Was the fluid low? Does the pedal have any resistance? does it feel normal? Did it happen all of a sudden? Does it shift into gear with the engine off? You say it doesnt shift into gear, but does the shifter move into gear or not? Or it does and the truck wont move? Sounds like maybe the SLAVE CYL isnt operating? leaking? theres more questions to answer.

1988 fiero gt, I have a shifting problem, It shifts into gear when not running but when i start it up it only shifts into gear when i pump the clutch really fast. I added a new master cylinder and slave...


i would check the throwout bearing, if this is the problem try starting in first go for a while than try up shifting to second. after a while your transaxle should warm up making an easier gear transition. ( this only partains to bad throwout bearing )

No pressure clutch pedal goes straight to the floor 1988 holden r


If hydraulic actuated mechanism, loss of fluid, defective master cylinder or slave cylinder at the clutch. Missing pin or other part between slave cylinder and clutch arm. Loose or broken slave cylinder mounting. Missing pin or broken part between pedal and master cylinder. If mechanical linkage, look for broken components or missing pins at moving joints. If you tried to shift into gear with engine running, you may have damaged the transmission gears.

Cannot get into any gear


check make sure the clutch master cylinder working properly along with slave cylinder. both master and slave don't have to leak fluid to be faulty, the rubber seal inside the unit could be worned and when apply pressure the fluid blow by or seep between the rubber seal causing the the unit not to work properly giving you a weak feel and pressure at the pedal. both unit have to work properly in sync. if one are weak you will have the same issue. clutch should have a good tight feel not sloppy or weak. pressure plate will also play important role, weak pressure plate will also give you a weak pressure feedback from the foot pedal and also will cause the synchronizer in the transmission not to engage and work properly. check this basic item fist before messing with your tranny. clutch master and slave cyc are fairly cheap to fix and replace.

Porsche 944 Turbo won't go into gear when motor is running.


Hi mate. I'm no Porsche expert but the most common diagnosis would be clutch failure. If you can shift (even some) gears with the engine off then this would be plausible. Before looking at the complete clutch, try the master and/or slave cylinder, it's more likely to be the master. Pop the bonnet and check the level of brake fluid in the reservoir, there is no "clutch fluid", it's just brake fluid. If it's below the minimum line, top it up then see if it engages gear. Get it checked out, but tell the mechanic your theory, he'll soon confirm it if it is.
