Sounds like you missed the ball socket inside the transmission housing. Remove the shifter and look closely. Remember pivoting will position the socket opposite the direction of movment of the shift lever. Insert the ball of the shifter correctly in the socket and you'll be all set.

SOURCE: Clutch pedal does not disengage clutch

If the car hasn't been driven for a while it could be corrosion on the fork but I think that is unlikely. I think you are right about the release bearing being jammed in the spring. If the truck has quite high mileage, it probably means a clutch job.

SOURCE: Replacing the clutch on a 1998 Saturn SL1

It is very difficult for you to disengage the clutch by hand or with any leverage you can get outside the transmission. There is over 200 lbs of force clamping on the clutch disc.

If you replaced the clutch and took the slave cylinder out of the transmission without putting a brick under the clutch pedal or disconnecting the pivot arm from the pedal then you ruined the hydraulics. Buy a new PRE-BLED system from a local auto store. Generally this is the problem.

Either that or the clutch fork is bent or you installed the throwout bearing backwards (or simply fell off the fork which is not all that uncommon).

Does hydraulic slave cylinder bearing need greasing?


Hi Sheila:
The clutch slave cylinder pushes against a throwout arm
The throwout arm is a lever and it pushes against the throwout bearing which thenpresses against the clutch plate and dis-engages the clutch.
Throwout bearings are typically sealed units that last until they fail, at which time they get replaced.
You should not have to worry about greasing it.
Hope this helps.
Cheers.

The slave should not leak. Either it is defective, or there is a mechanical problem with the clutch pressure plate or throwout bearing, and the slave it over extending.

It might simply be your slave cylinder or slave master cylinder that's bad and leaking. They cost a hellofalot less than an entire clutch replacement, that you are about to do. Have those two items checked first.

Cant put my 98 Hombre in gear.


There are 4 parts to this system. First is the clutch master cylinder, second is the slave cylinder, third is the clutch throwout bearing, and last is the clutch pressure plate. These are all the parts that can be the issue. The master cylinder is the part that pumps the fluid to the slave cylinder, which pushes on the linkage to the throwout bearing, which pushes on the fingers on the clutch pressure plate, releasing the clutch. If you drained the fluid out, first you need to make sure that all the AIR is out of the system. It's just like brakes, it will not pump if it has air in it. The hydraulic portion of the system rarely gives problems, so here's a question. How old is the clutch in your truck? If it's over 100,000 mi, then you should start suspecting the throwout bearing. Did the truck make any groaning noises when you pressed the clutch recently, and then perhaps it stopped on its own? These are signs of throwout bearings going out. Here's the bit of troubleshooting that you need. go under your truck, and find where the slave cylinder attaches and pushes on the linkage that goes into the bell housing on the transmission. Feel this linkage; it should have very limited to no movement. if it moves significantly, then your throwout bearing went out, and you will need to replace your clutch and throwout bearing. If not, then it's the hydraulic portion of the brakes, and you'll have to troubleshoot between air in the system, master cylinder failure, or slave cylinder failure.

86 ford mustang 5.0 ho motor. just installed a clutch. wont go into gear. the cable has been adjusted. is there a slave cylinder adjustment too? or is the slave cylinder not workin properly


My '86 5.0 was a cable controlled clutch no slave or master cylinders. Make sure the throwout lever is seated properly, and check for movement when the clutch pedal is depressed. It should move at least .75 inches when depressed. Also make sure the bell housing is mating up to the engine completely and all bolts are tight. If all these things are ok it could be an improperly installed or wrong throwout bearing. I hope this helps. I remember what a pain that job was when I did mine esp. that screwy cable pulley thing attached to the clutch pedal. Which also may be the problem. Good luck.

Have an assistant push in on the clutch while you observe the function of the cluth throwout bearing lever, it may be that the throwout bearing fork lever is not on its pivot point or is out of adjustment, you should be able to rotate the rear tires when the clutch is pushed in if not the throw out bearing and fork assembly either was not put in corectly or you did not bleed out the air from the slave cylinder.

Replaced clutch and throwout bearing now will not go into gear


these can be a pain to bleed is it is the slave is new. Keep bleeding it, try a vacuum leeder or try reverse bleeding with a hand oil pump.
