Help needed have a Ldv Maxus, put a new plastic grommet into clutch pedal today as the old one broke, now having trouble getting it into gear unless I pump the pedal Any Idears please.


Sounds like there is now air in the system. If there is a bleed nipple on the slave cylinder, bleed the clutch with new fluid. If not, it is a sealed system and both the master and slave must be replaced as a pair and ensure you follow the instructions otherwise you will get air in the system again.

My clutch pedal stay close to the floor in my Acura CL. Doesnt return fully like it used too. Cant figure it out and I've replaced everythin


Bobbie, If your sure the system is bled properly,did you get the clutch fork back in correct position, was it the correct bearing etc., you may have to adjust the clutch pedal and / or if it has a mechanical return spring, change the spring, it could be weak.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides for clutch pedal adjustment., bleeding,etc.Good luck

Wont go in gear when on it only goes in gear when car off


It's a manual transmission, then? If it is, your clutch is not working. You need to check at the transmission's bell housing to see if the clutch pedal being depressed causes the clutch fork to move-either forward or backward, it should move about an inch with the pedal pushed to the floor.. The clutch pedal will either be cable operated, or it will be a hydraulic clutch with a clutch master cylinder on the firewall, and a steel tube going down to the bell housing, where a small "slave cylinder" operates the clutch fork.

If you see the clutch fork move a fair amount, at least an inch, then you probably need a new clutch disc and pressure plate. A clutch job means removing the transmission to replace the clutch.

If the clutch fork does not move, either the cable has too much slack-for cable operated clutches, or the hydraulic unit has a problem-for hydraulic operated clutches. One of your hydraulic cylinders may be bad, either the clutch master cylinder or the slave cylinder.

Clutch on 1994 Ford laser not working. Car has been sitting in garage for 12 months. What do I need to look for?


Does the car have a cable clutch or hydraulic? If cable, there will be a rather hefty cable leading from the firewall (engine side) to the bell housing. If hydraulic, there will be a second fluid reservoir next to the brake fluid reservoir, engine compartment.
Hydraulic clutch: check for fluid level. If low, check for fluid leaks at the servo cylinder, that is the cylinder that operates the release fork on the bell housing, check for fluid leaks from the main cylinder. If it leaks, it will leak inside the car where the clutch pedal rod connects to the main cylinder. Any leaks you find on the main or servo can be repaired with a kit from your spares dealer.
If cable clutch - Check your pedal. If it is low, the cable can be adjusted to take up the slack. On older vehicles, I have found that the firewall itself sometimes corrodes if the cable is anywhere near the battery, and then adjustment does not help. The firewall has to be reinforced first.
If the clutch pedal feels good, have someone work the pedal while you have a look underneath at the release lever (or in the engine compartment if front wheel drive). See if it works well.
As a last resort, the friction plate or pressure plate could be worn, and this will mean removing the gearbox if your car is rear wheel drive. On most front wheel drive cars the clutch / pressure plate can be replaced while the gearbox is in place, a 45 minute job.

I have just put a brand new clutch (clutch plate, pressure plate, thrust bearing, spigot.bearing) in a Subaru Forester, flywheel was machined, it feels great, can select all gears easy, pedal height and...


Interesting problem. A bent fork is not impossible, but this would usually make the clutch not release fully. Try increasing the pedal free play, so that you can guarantee the slave cylinder is not holding the clutch slightly open. If not this, then it all has to come out again ...

My clutch fork broke need new one for my car


I suggest you check for fluid in the resevoir as it sounds as if the slave cylinder developed a leak and lost the fluid. Clutch forks seldom if ever break but cylinders leak and with no fluid the pedal will not return to the normal position

Truck makes loud noise unless clutch is pushed in


chances are the adjustment of the throwout bearing fork is the problem . because of vibration that is the rattling that you are hearing. correct adjustment should be as follows.

#1...peddle travle should be no more than 1 1/2 inches

#2...the clearance between throw out bearing and fork no more than 1/2 inch

#3...clearance between fork and fork stops is 1/8 inch

also there should be grease zerts in the shaft that holds the fork and linkage make sure they are not dry of grease...please rate the solution....thanks
