Uh oh, did they properly torqued down the pressure plate? they have to check the fork-throwout bearing area, which requires dis-assembly :(

possible pivot ball broke at the fork

SOURCE: Engine vibration on 1.6 L Cyl. Tracker 4x4

Vibrations are caused by engine components, they can also be caused by piston slap, excessive valve lash, excessive bearing clearances, deformation of parts under stress, crankshaft and camshaft deformations. Also problems with axel and wheel bearings can cause abnormal vibration. If you detect an abnormal vibration in your vehicle consult immediately a mechanic, the safety of the vehicle may be compromised.

SOURCE: Hard Clutch and 1st and 2nd Gear Shifting is hard

The clutch bearing is supposed to have a groove on the inside where it slides on the shaft That groove is supposed to have a heavy grease applied to it to prevent the bearing running dry on the collar it slides on.Regardless of your driving style, that grease is intended to remain there for the life of the clutch, (generally every clutch I have ever replaced still had some remaining lube there unless the bearing itself failed from a material defect which caused it to overheat and cause that grease to then run out of the retaining groove) I'm not there and can't see the old parts, but in my opinion the first clutch may have failed partially because of your lack of skill in using a stick shift vehicle but the second failure obviously is not your fault if the information you have posted is correct.
Good luck

SOURCE: have to change clutch plate on suzuki grand vitara

If it's hard to get into gear you should check the clutch is disengaging properly.
Before changing the clutch plate, check that the clutch throw-out is adjusted correctly and the actuating hydraulics/levers have the correct amount of travel.

SOURCE: New clutch won't work.

I too have a 2003 Ranger and am on my second clutch, master clyinder and slave cylinder at 90k miles. Assuming all parts are installed correctly I would check the slave cylinder next to the master in engine compartment--it is the small plastic resevoir. Don't bother trying to bleed as you are wasting your time. Remove rubber boot after removing cap and you will probably find a lack of fluid or dirt in bottom. It has a one way valve and once you **** in dirt and air it's all over. It comes primed with fluid from the factory--I belive the part is made in France. Also when you remove you will have to break plastic washer under dash which is worth about $.02, but Ford charges around $30--it connects linkage with master cylinder. Replace master and the washer and you will probably have clutch pedal and be able to engage gears.

Car won t move in any gear


Did you also replace the pressure plate? Pilot bearing? If you replaced the clutch...and the car moved, and then stopped moving again...your issue is likely right there, bad pressure plate, flywheel may need resurfaced or replaced ETC. I am curious to know what the old clutch disc looked like when you took it out. Was it glazed or worn? I would pull the tranny again, and look at the new disc to see if it is glazed looking from slipping...and note if it is both sides, or one side, and which side...plate side or flywheel side. If you didn't replace the pressure plate/pilot bearing with the clutch disc...I would do that.

Manual trans won,t shift 87f150


When there is an issue with a manual gear box not working after a clutch replacement I am always suspicious that the clutch plate has been fitted the wrong way and the crank bolts are fowling on the cluch plate center . If the gear box was fine before and i now faulty I would go to what was done with the clutch. Also check that the clutck slave cylinder is working ok.

206 w reg fitted new clutch but now have no biting point so car will not pull away help


Hello, Who installed the clutch"? Were there a new pressure plate installed? Were there a new throw out bearing installed. Does this 1991 Peugeot 405 have hydraulic or mechanical clutch linkage?
There a couple of reason why the Peugeot wont move and engine is running and the transmission is in gear.

1.. Pressure plate is installed backwards.--Remove transmission and reinstall pressure plate in the correct orientation to the clutch. There is two ways to install it, but one way correctly.

2. Adjustment for the clutch linkage from the pedal in the driver compartment is adjusted to tight and not releasing the clutch to where the clutch pressure is on the pressure plate.



I hope this helps. GB....stewbison

The clutch pedal is rock hard won't go in too gear checked the clutch master cylinder and thats ok, so do you know what the problem is.


Possible solution! Daewoo Lanos 98-99
Had the same problem suddenly the clutch pedal went rock hard!
The clutch was around 3 months old.
Mechanic checked - Master, Slave, Clutch Components, and inside the box, all looked okay.
Turned out the top arm of the clutch pivot rod had twisted, replaced pivot rod around AU$100.
Fixed Problem!
