Although clutch may feel like it is engaging i suspect the pressure plate is worn ,if you try to engage gears with engine running is there a grating noise ?

SOURCE: car will not move when

Have a helper put it in first gear and then check to see if any of the driveshafts or half shafts are spinning. U could have a broken axle, or one of your axles popped out. Or u could have spun all the fiber or lining off your clutch disk. With car running try to shift in to gear without depressing the clutch if it goes into gear with no grinds then it your disk. just a few simple tricks to try.

SOURCE: when does one engage the ''L'' gear when driving a mitsubishi rvr c

the L gear is Gear # 1 and likewise 2 is second gear, you utilise this in case you are going down on a slop especially icy or snow condition all it does is runs just on 1 or 2 respectively without changing whichh gieves more traction on the road.

SOURCE: VW GOLF 1.4 1999 S. Gearbox makes whining sound at idle

No good news on this one I think
Your whining sound problem is the Layshaft bearings in the gearbox are badly worn. It also seems that the baulk rings are damaged on 5th gear.

SOURCE: push on clutch and caR WONT GO IN GEAR UNLESS MOTOR OFF

This sounds like the clutch cable has broken. Not that it couldn't be the diaphram on the pressure plate, but the cable is more than likely the problem.

It won't go into gear while running because the clutch isn't being depressed putting the transmission in a position to allow the synchronizers to work.

When you turn it off, you can easily shift into any gear, but trying to start in gear makes the car try to move. You can verify this by putting it into high gear and trying to start it, you'll still move but less due to clutch slippage. If you put it into reverse, it will try to go backwards-so don't do that!

good luck!

Hi i have a 1988 mitsubishi truck .it has been sitting for a month and when i started the truck i have no clutch or gear selection from hi to low its an air problem to me can anyone help diagnose it


Pressure plate fingers are not engaging when clutch is pressed towards the floor. Check to see if it needs to be bled. Possible air in line.

I just put a new slave cylinder and clutch master cylinder on a 2003 Honda accord 3.0 V6 six speed and you can shift the gears without the clutch pedal pushed in or the car started


that is normal if the gear synchro dogs ( teeth) are in line in the box
problems concerning a clutch are
slashing gears when trying to engage first or reverse with the pedal to the floor ---needs bleeding
slipping when the clutch pedal is released--- slipping clutch from the pressure not being released ---problem in master cylinder
reverse gear is the only gear not synchronised so even with the clutch depressed it is possible sometimes that it will not go into gear unless you let the clutch up to move the gears in the box then attempt to re-engage reverse

Hard to press clucth /hiace 2014 .while to engage hard to press clutch


check the clutch operation if it is hydraulic--press the pedal and see if the slave cylinder movers the throw out arm
It suggests a problem with the clutch master cylinder or a failed hose in the system that blocks off when the pressure is applied
hard to select the gears indicates that the pressure plate is not releasing
if it is a cable operation then replace the cable assembly as it is jamming up inside.

2007 Mitsubishi eclipse spider just put in clutch kit now it will not engage I can put it in gear without car on and I can push the car back and forth


Sounds possible you have the friction plate in backwards and there is no clearance. Retrace your steps and check the clutch operating mechanism, then any gear linkage. With the clutch centre plate, the raised part of the spring carrier is usually facing outwards toward the pressure plate fingers.

I have a mitsubishi Galant 2002 manual. I struggle to engage gears when the car has been standing for a while and therefore cold. By pumping the clutch i can eventually start to select gears until I can...


gear oil is not the problem because it you started a cold engine and let it idle for a while (5 minutes) the gear box oil will thin out
IN correct oil generally shows as slashing gears when changing as it prevents the synco rings from operating properly
I f you have a hydraulic clutch ,it indicates a problem master cylinder and you are pressurizing the system to compress any air that should be bled out properly
If there has been no clutch system maintenance since new , or within the last 5 years ,it would be ideal to take it to an accredited brake and clutch specialist shop and have both the slave cylinder and master cylinder replaced

1990 magna gearbox putnew cluch presureplate throwout bearing new master@slave cylender gear change good untill i start motor then no gears can start in gear drive@change soon as car stops sticks in gear...


Well, it sounds like the clutch cylinder / clutch linkage is not properly adjusted or the clutch cylinder is not fully bled, or it is malfunctioning -- it's not fully depressing the pressure plate when the pedal is pushed down, therefore, the clutch is still engaged.

1984 honda accord AC problem, Clutch does not engage fuse good


The clutch will not engage unless there is sufficient refrigerant in the system.

I believe the 1984 Honda originally had r-12 which is largely illegal in the U.S. nowadays in that a certified mechanic must recover and recycle that kind of refrigerant.

I would recommend that you convert it to r134a if you can afford to do this, by putting new fittings on for a quick connect on the low side.

Add about 2 or 3 cans down at the compressor's low side (low pressure) which has larger pipes than the high side (high pressure).

Charge until the hose says you have 25 psi to 45 psi on the low side while the compressor clutch is turning.

good luck to you on this problem.

GRATING WHEN ENGAGING IN GEAR


If it is a manual transmission, you may have a clutch/pressure plate going bad, or the synchronizers in the trans are going bad. If it is an auto, you have something going wrong inside the trans, and will need to be rebuilt or replaced.

Turn on the overdrive switch gear disengage


the problem is caused by the "end clutch" this is the 4th gear or over drive gear of the auto trans, it is mounted in an alloy cover on the chassis rail side of the trans, will requre removal of this cover and new clutch packs fitted, until then just drive the car with OD off, any trans shop can replace this for ya, fairly easy,
