I have similar issues with my 94. Fluid level is good. seems to not want to return more when it is -20 or colder. Also seem to have a click when working the clutch. Could this be firewall as was suggested? Can be difficult to get into 1st and reverse at times as well. Also seems like the clutch engages while peddle is still pretty close to the floor.

    OK this sounds like you may have a leak in the clutch mastercylender when they start leaking they suck air back in the lines and this can cause the truck hard to get in first and reverse gears ..,have you been adding fluid lately try to pump the pedal a few times and see if that makes it easy to get in gear .,if it does you might want to replace it

  • Peter Dunnink Apr 19, 2014

    added fluid roughly a year ago and has not gone down since. Have pumped it quite a few times does not help other then to warm it up a bit on cold days when it does not want to come back up at all.

    Talked to my Dad (Who is mechanic) and he suggested when it is tough to get in gear try letting clutch out a bit. This is to get the gears to sinc better have not tried that yet. As need to fix my being stuck in third first. I know how to do this just have not had the time. Been working on getting another vehicle road safe first.

  • gmduvall Apr 30, 2014

    It's air in the fluid. In cold conditions it contracts/hot weather expands, it also heats up under extreme pressure (normal fluid behaviour) but air makes the whole kaboosh go spongy or intermittent. Red

  • gmduvall Apr 30, 2014

    ....I missed the 'fix' bit..............bleed system with fresh fluid and check for leaks around master cylinder and especially slave cylinder. problems caused by small rubber seals are most common.....

SOURCE: 01 focus zx3 overheating and clutch problems

I'm not sure but I believe the clutch pedal has a cable adjustment . usually its two nuts one on top of the other, hold one and turn the other until desire pedal is achieved.
However ,if its a hydralic clutch I'll let the shop manual give you the bad news. Your gonna need the Shop Manual any way because it will tell you how to adjust "pedal free play" which is what your describing.

First check that both fans WORK.How? Fabricate two jumper wires and remove the connectors from the fan(s)
one at a time and jump them from the battery one at a time. If they work ok if not replace the one that doesn't work.
Next find the coolant temperature sensor check it for resistance , wiring ,and to see if its signal is making it to the ECU. Then check if the ECU is telling the relays to turn on the appropriate fan. Remember one fan is for engine cooling the other is for the condenser of the a/c system. If you turn on a/c it should work.
Use shop manual for more detail testing and specs. I'll help you any way I can. Good luck

SOURCE: Stuck in 5th gear

That just recently happened to me. If your stick wont move into any of the gears, then you need a clutch. But if you can shift into the gears but dont go anywhere, then you need a new transmission.

SOURCE: clutch problem

I guess the clutch system must be a hydraulic one, check the clutch master cylinder and slave cylinder if they are functioning.
If they are thn theres a problem with the clutch pressure plate, if thts so , you will have to drop the gear box to replace it and its adviseable to replac e the pro-kit...consisting of Clutch pressure plate, clutch plate and release bearing.

SOURCE: The clutch pedal on my

That car has a hydraulic actuated clutch so it could just be low on clutch fluid or one of the pipes going from the pedal to the clutch could be burst.

The transmission in a Volkswagen vehicle shifts gears only when there is enough hydraulic pressure. This is made possible in part by the clutch cable, because it connects the clutch pedal to the clutch master cylinder. The clutch master cylinder in turn transforms the foot pressure that is carried through the clutch cable into hydraulic pressure. If the clutch cable breaks, the clutch master cylinder will be unable to generate enough hydraulic pressure for shifting gears.

Usally when the clutch is bad, you still can shift gears. Check the slave cylinder or air in the fluid line. Good luck

your clutch uses a hydraulic master and slave cylinder to disengage. It is likely that the slave has been leaking and the reservoir gone dry, thus allowing air into the system and reducing effectiveness. Check the clutch master cylinder reservoir (near the brake reservoir) fluid level. If low, also check the slave cylinder at the clutch for leakage. If leaking, replace the slave and bleed the system. If you need procedures or have more questions, please let us know.

Hard to shift into first gear


Tighten clutch cable until the car would start to move when the clutch peddle is 50% depressed, Before you do that, with the clutch fully depressed and in 2nd gear, start the car and slowly let off the clutch. You may find that the clutch has to be released virtually all the way before the car moves. It should be at about that 50% I spoke about

There is air in the system. The slave cylinder does provide pressure to return the pedal. Check to be sure that you have plenty of fluid in the master cylinder (clutch). Slowly work the pedal back and forth to try and remove air. (This usually works unless you have really lost all fluid. Once the air is remove depress the clutch while in gear. If it does not keep the car from moving then replace the slave and master cylinder. The parts are a little over $100. Hope this helps. I have one in the shop right now as a matter of fact...
