If it is a Hydraulic clutch, it could be the clutch master cylinder, it would much like the brakes do, if the valving goes bad, it will go into bypass, and hence no Clutch pressure, also note that excessive water absorption in the fluid will do the same thing. Water hates to be compressed and cant be detected in Brake fluid. ( one reason I hate brake fluid).

VERY Bizarre Combination of "Symptoms" I Believe Relating to Clutch or Transmission, or heaven forbid worse! Please help!


First, congrats on the most detailed problem description I have ever seen! Seriously, it does assist us.

All this is completely consistent with your clutch not releasing properly, meaning that the gearbox is still turning when the pedal is depressed. The syncros in the gearbox will then keep you out of gear, that is what they should do. You can indeed shift into higher gears however when driving as the gearbox revs more nearly match to what is needed. The jerking forward when you hit the starter is due to the poor old starter motor having to move the whole car instead of just the engine, because the clutch has not released !

Now as to why, it is likely that the clutch release fork has broken, inside the housing. I had this once with a Mazda, and symptoms were exactly as you describe. The gearbox has to be removed if this is the problem, and you should also then take the chance to renew the clutch, pressure and driven plate both, unless quite new.

Also a possible cause is a complete loss of clutch fluid if a hydraulic clutch, or a broken cable if that type of clutch. Loss of fluid in a hydraulic clutch can be easily checked in the fluid reservoir, and can occur if a hose splits

Toyata celica 2000 gt fourt gear grind when shift

how many miles on car, 50k or 300k, a key factory.
my clutches last over 150k, i baby em. but was it ever changed out?
and when, (miles)
i missed this post. my guess , fixed already......????
only 4th, only up shift or down shift or both.
at what RPM and speed MPH, ?
if reverse never grinds the clutch is ok. (its loves to due to non syncho status)
reverse is the canary gear, like in coal mines. dig?
4th gear has this magic device called a syncronizer
its a brass ring that matches speeds of the shift dogs.
the ring is removed on race cars to make the box stronger
and we double clutch it like a 1960s truck driver (me)
my point here is if you have driven both , you know what they do and
why, the match gear speeds, if not, it grinds.
for a synchronizer to work right the clutch must fully disengage.
100% !
this clutch has a master cylinder and fluid, does fluid keep dropping
? level, yes, that is bad master and/or slave clutch, causing
clutch drag as this progresses, (worse) more gears will drag
in fact your 4th gear might be just the weaker of them all, but still good.

open hood, see MC ,no that is brakes, we want the Clutch MC.
fluid fill jar there, see it , off the cap, is the fluid low, better start
checking fluids now, every 2 weeks, huh, like the book says.

THE MC = Master cylinder for the clutch
this device, will fail, about 100k miles. (it gets big torture, in city)
and will start dropping fluid, (it or slave leaks)
the clutch will become more random in function and proceed to worse
this is true for all cars with this hydraulic clutch actuator .

what i do is replace both MC and slave. (at first sign of fluid drop)
bleed it
its is self calibrating. no adjustments.
i do that so i can know its done and not worry it.
on my jeep its made as one... so i have no choices.

the MC will leak down both sides of fire wall. (big clue1)
the slave leaks driving and most likely no signs. (steath failure)

Hello there
By clutch you mean pedal right?You most likely need to bleed the sleeve cylinder(it is on side of the transmission) .Make sure you have enough brake fluid in reservoir where the break fluid goes it is shared with the clutch.You probably have air in system.

Why is my gear shift so hard to move??

I believe your clutch is not disengaging fully. When this happens it may be hard to get into first gear but subsequet shifts are easier due to the fact the vehicle is moving. You probably have a hydraulic clutch system which is low on fluid or may have air in the system. Before shifting into first gear or reverse try pumping the clutch pedal 5 or 6 times then shifting, if it goes into gear easier after this then you probably have air in the system, it can be bled similar to bleeding brakes. If this doesnt work you might be low on fluid, or have a bad master or slave cylinder.

Hi Donna:
If you try filling your clutch resavoir with brake fluid, its probably low level? If this is OK, then sound like clutch plate or clutch adjustment seems to be the most likely thing in that it is not disengaging fully. Check the adjustment.

Other problem could be worn gear linkages and joint bushes, I suggest check check play along gear change train from gear lever to gearbox selector input.

Finally, you might have an internal problem with the clutch or the transmission itself, although most manual transmissions are hydraulic, meaning they require fluid to operate. The clutch master cylinder is usually next to the brake master cylinder.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.

Have the vehicle on a level piece of road, engine running, transmission in 'park' with the parking brake on. Remove the transmission dip stick and take a measurement of the fluid level. If low add fluid a pint at a time via the transmission dip stick tube. Keep filling until the level is 'max' on the dip stick. The reason for keeping the engine running and in park is to ensure that fluid is continually forced into the torque converter. If you measure the fluid level with the engine off fluid drains out of the converter giving a false reading. Snatched gear changes are due to late shifts caused by low fluid levels in the converter. Once filled properly it should shift earlier and with no fuss. A worn clutch is usually signified by a slippage while in gear..the engine gains in speed but the car fails to pick up at the same time.

A clutch issue youtend to have more of an engagement problem with 1st and reverse gear for a small time period before you notice other gears.You want to check the clutch hydrolic system for any leaks(clutch slave at transmission,clutch master,which you look for leakage on interior above clutch pedal)and at fluid also want to double check condition of trans fluid. strongly recommend using only HONDA BRAND MANUAL TRANS. FLUID when doing maintinance,fluid should be replaced every 30k on this car.The Honda brand fluid is like night and day on these cars,it WILL make a difference in shifting!!TRust Me on this point! Sorry now back to your main clutch issue,when driveing and you go to shift gears and normally notice grinding,with clutch pedal in shft out of gear and before engageing it into next gear do a double pump of clutch pedal then see if when continuing to next gear if it engagees smoother.if so you know you have without a dout a clutch pressure plate/disc problem. I can tell you that in twenty years the only manual transmissions themselves that ever had problems were due to outside influences(gear oil in transmission,improper driveing,etc.)let me know what you find and we can go from there..JOEL

1997 sL1 Saturn manual transmission hard to change gears

The dipstick is behind the battery, below the master brake cylinder and is not the clutch reservoir. It has a red flip top handle instead of a ring like most dipsticks. It was hard for me to find due to engine grease. I had the same problem and was able to see that I was low on fluid (only a little) and adding fluid helped the problem. Questions? kurt1431 at comcast dot net.
