SOURCE: Clutch pedal won't disengage clutch

make sure fluid is full... then pump the pedal with it NOT RUNNING as many times really fast as you can.. try it after that, if it works then you need either a clutch MASTER cyliner and/or a SLAVE cylinder.. MOST likely being the slave cylinder. if the pumping action doesnt cause it to disengage then you have a burnt out clutch. The system is hydralic and takes regular DOT3 brake fluid in the small resevoir under the hood next to the brake master cylinder...
The slave cylinder being bad would mean you have to removed the transmission and install a new slave cylinder... thats the most common issue with those around that mileage...

good point but even if it is the cable one its automatic,hydraulic is non adjustable.if it is the cable operated one the clutch is mounted to the back of the flywheel,nothing difficult but you will need the round alignment tool,if its hydraulic it could have a dualmass flywheel which it is advisable to change thats a straight forward job to do is it a 1j chassis build 7th and 8th digit of the vin number

SOURCE: A/C compressor/pulley clutch does not disengage.

It may be a bad low pressure cut out switch. You would have to hook the system to a set of gauges and look at the pressures. The low side should cut out at aprox.20 psi. if the switch is bad the compressor will keep running and ice up. The switch is easy to replace. It screws into the dryer (big silver can} it has two wires going to it. It's a cheep fix to try at home.

Hi first lift the car and be sure to secure the car that it wouldn't fall when your under the car, remove the wheels then disconnect the negative cable from the battery remove the axles, remove the transmission mount, remove the starter, remove the bolts around the transmission housing once you remove the bolts use a floor jack and put it under the transmission then use a prior and separate the tranny from the engine and bring the tranny to the floor now you have the clutch expose remove the old clutch and pressure plate and pilot bearing now do the same thing in reverse good luck

SOURCE: Need 93 ford F250 clutch diagram to understand how it works

It must a Diesel? Exterior slave cylinder? The double, or split, flywheel has is made of two major parts. One part is bolted to the crankshaft and there is a bearing that supports the other part of the flywheel that pressure plate bolts to. There are cushioning springs in the flywheel instead of in the clutch disc, it's not a very good set-up and they are prone to failure. "LUK Clutch Company", makes a solid flywheel and regular clutch for those trucks, there might other companies too. The clutch works the same way as any other clutch but, the reason it pushes hard is because the sleave that the release bearing (throw out bearing) rides on, is most likely galled or dry. That sleave is made of aluminum and they have a nasty habit of getting messed up, I don't remember if there are 3 or 4 bolts that hold that sleave on the front of the trans. At any rate that sleave is easy to replace once the trany is out of the vehicle, check the arm for wear and cracks too. If you don't want to pull the trans to fix it right, you might be able pull the boot out that goes around the clutch release arm enough to squirt some oil up on that sleave, that might get you by for a while.

IF you have bled the clutch system and managed to get a firm clutch then the clutch plate has been installed back to front and the clutch center is hitting the bolts that hold flywheel onto the crankshaft. If you have no not got a firm predal pressure replace the clutch master cyl

Transmission issues

Typical Clutch Problem. Check to see if Clutch Linkage is Hydraulic or Mechanical. If Hydraulic then replace Clutch Slave Cylinder First.Bleed out air from Hydraulic line. if this doesn't fix it and or it has a Mechanical Clutch Linkage then Replace Clutch itself don't forget to get a new throw ou bearing and pack it with heavy duty grease otherwise in 20,000 miles you'll be doing it again.

Holden rodeo ran out of clutch fluid, bled it through and will not disengage, when running and try to move theres a slight pressure loss feeling and will not move.

No leaking? I don't know, but possibly your clutch master cylinder may be failing with an internal leak that doesn't allow pressure to build up at the slave cylinder. Or maybe the slave cylinder itself is bad.
Good luck.

There's an electrical switch on the clutch pedal arm (sort of like a brake lamp switch on the brake pedal arm). What does it do?

One of two things - if the switch closes when you press the pedal, it's an ignition safety requiring the clutch to be pressed when starting the car. If it's closed with the clutch pedal released it's a cruise control safety, so that cruise disengages if you push the pedal in (so the engine doesn't over-rev).

First gear selection problem.Sometimes goes in easy but sometimes not at all until I pump the clutch a couple of times.Mechanic says its not hydrolic fault but believes it to be a syncromesh problem,What...

Not a transmission problem. Sounds like the clutch isn't disengaging which could be caused by anything from a bad slave or master cylinder to a bad pressure plate release mechanism. First make sure that the reservoir is full of fluid, if not check for leaks. Then I would try to bleed the system at the slave cylinder. If the slave cylinder piston is moving properly but the clutch doesn't disengage you have a bad pressure plate.

Where is the inter lock solenoid located on 1992 chevy 2500

Depending on the mileage on the vehicle, you may have to replace the whole clutch assembly. Check the hydraulic or cable to the clutch to insure that it is working properly.

1992 chevy 2500 wont shift up from low

please check the interlock solenoid on the gearshift linkage in the console. also have a check on the clutch system such that if the clutch doesn's disengage properly, then the synchromesh between the transmission prevents it for shifting of gears. if you dont know how to check it please contact us again
