If the clutch is correctly adjusted, it will start to engage when releasing the clutch pedal at 1 in. off of the floor. When in Heavy traffic shift trans to neutral while at a stop, take your foot off of the clutch pedal to avoid overheating the release bearing

SOURCE: Clutch Failure

Gary, I've worked in a tranny shop for quite some time now and I've seen this problem before. I'm not going to tell you this is the problem, but it should put you in the right direction. I'm pretty sure the problem your having is indeed in the gearbox itself. Sorry for the bad news, but it sounds like your syncronizers are out of mesh. These ring type sleeves make sure that when you shift gears, it meshes the teeth of 2 gears together. Basically, times everything together. My suggestion would be to take it to a tranny shop and get an opinion from a mechanic, seeing on how it is a major job....and as for the clutch problem, it could be many different factors. Flywheel, Slave cylinder, driving habits, release bearing....and the list goes on. Hope this help you.

STOP Downshifting!
STOP Forcing gear change, watch the Engine RPMs and shift accordingly, HOMBRE's are as good as the operator's. Hombre's have dash shift indicators which illuminate when it's time to 'shift' and not before, This has nothing to do with gear oil either. If you've drained it, you best fill it immediately and make sure it's ample level. The heat these gears sustain in is inceredible, cooling lubricant is essential. Here's a tip, while engine is OFF, ignition key is engaged, dash is illuminated, depress clutch peddle, keep it depressed and walk through all gears with gear shift, shifting should be smooth and unpeded, including reverse. If resistance is experienced at one or more gears, gear alignment is off as a result of inproper gear shifting while driving. Continue to drive vehicle just shift slower until clutch needs replacement then do an entire drive shaft upgrade. It worth it, it's great truck.

SOURCE: Low gears wont slide into gear when in traffic jams or hot.

Sounds like you do need a clutch adjustment.Do you have a hydraulic clutch?Check beside the brake master cylinder and look for a SMALLER size master cylinder which may be low on fluid.(PUT ONLY BRAKE FLUID IN TO FILL IT).Hopefully it is just low and the brake fluid fill will restore your clutch adjustment.

SOURCE: my ford focus tdi 2003 cant select 1st,3rd or 5th gears.

Car is in limp in mode unless you have the tools to work on automatic transmission you will need to take it to a transmission shop. Of course you can check oil level but I suspect you have other issues.

Clutch slipping


Maybe the clutch plate is worn and only shows signs of wear with a load. If the vehicle is used in stop and go traffic or off road in sandy locations wear @ 60,000 mile is not highly unusual. I would have the disk replaced and the fly wheel and pressure plate resurfaced before it gives problems under normal load. Hope that helps.

I have a 2003 chev 3500 truck with a 6speed manual duramax 250000 miles New clutch and transfer case at 206000. 30 days ago had driveshaft replaced, 2 weeks ago driveshaft bracket came off on freeway. ...


Excessive wear on clutches is usually from alot of heavy hauling, pulling heavy trailers. 40,000 miles is real excessive. If you can, I would take the access cover off the bottom of the bell housing and check to see if the pressure plate bolts aren't backing out. When the clutch was replaced they should have (or I would have ) used a thread lock on these bolts. There is always a lot of vibration in this area, and I have seen these bolts back out, on manual and automatic transmissions.

Vw transporter goes into gear but has no drive, clutch replaced 3,000 miles ago, gearbox removed and striped, clutch and gearbox all look OK ?


Interesting, what was done to the transmission... complete rebuild or just clutch?
"Striped" recently or 3000 mi ago?
It sounds like the clutch has failed but without more diagnostic information an exact answer is impossible
