Have you got a hole in the floorboards????
It could be something loose in the clutch or just something ricochetting around the bell housing.

    the clutch pedal does not have push rods or master cylinder 83 chevy S10 has a cable assy. hooked to a plastic gear (gears) that where out real fast.

    i've had this problem more than once especially when it's cold the plastic gear gets brittle and the clutch can get moisture on it and freeze together so when u try to push it the brittle plastic breaks i bought a new one and year later same thing then bought another new one and once again same thing so i adjusted it to where it looked right made a mark on the back side right behind that metel piece (through the metal would probably b better but was'nt thinking) but anyway i drilled a hole through it and stuck a long nail through it and zipped tied it so far so good im not the kind the kind of guy to rig stuff up like that but in this situation it is the only way to go e mail me if it helps rtbrannon69@yahoo.com

I just put a new slave cylinder and clutch master cylinder on a 2003 Honda accord 3.0 V6 six speed and you can shift the gears without the clutch pedal pushed in or the car started


that is normal if the gear synchro dogs ( teeth) are in line in the box
problems concerning a clutch are
slashing gears when trying to engage first or reverse with the pedal to the floor ---needs bleeding
slipping when the clutch pedal is released--- slipping clutch from the pressure not being released ---problem in master cylinder
reverse gear is the only gear not synchronised so even with the clutch depressed it is possible sometimes that it will not go into gear unless you let the clutch up to move the gears in the box then attempt to re-engage reverse

Problem engaging first gear


Sounds like something with pedal to throw- out bearing. Go to a transmission shop they'll check it for free in most cases!

Noise when shifting gears


transmission synchronizers most common cause of transmisson noise in certain gears, and not others, might want to check the gear oil level. Transmission rebuild required. To read about them and what they actually do, then here is a good read:
When you shift gears in your standard shift car, you move a rod that moves a fork that engages the gear. Depending which gear you're shifting to, a different fork does the job. The fork moves the collar to the desired gear, and dog teeth on the collar mesh up with holes on the gear in order to engage it. You engage reverse gear through a separate, small idler gear. The reverse gear always turns in the opposite direction of the other (forward) gears.
In years past, double-clutching was common in order to disengage a gear, allow the collar and next gear to reach the same speed, and then to engage the new gear. To double-clutch shift, you pushed the clutch pedal to free the engine from the transmission. Then the collar moved into neutral. You released the clutch and revved the engine to get it to the right rpm value for the next gear so the collar and the next gear spun at the same rate to allow the dog teeth to engage the gear. When the engine hit the right speed, you depressed the clutch again in order to lock the collar into place on the next gear.
Modern cars use synchronizers in order to avoid the need for double-clutching. A synchronizer, or "synchro," lets the collar and gear synchronize their speeds while they're already in contact but before the dog teeth engage. Each manufacturer's synchro is slightly different than the others, but the basic idea is the same. For instance, a cone on one gear will fit into a cone-shaped depression on the collar. The gear and collar synchronize their speeds thanks to the friction between the cone and collar. Then the outer part of the collar moves out of the way so that the gear can be engaged by the dog teeth.

It has a plastic Ratchet style gear at the pedal end of the cable that has to be released. This gear automatically adjust the clutch when the pedal is pressed. Never put a jack against a clutch arm. You will probably have to disengage the cable to reset the ratchet gear. Don't strip the teeth on the gear

Clutch stays down, has about half an inch of play below carpet level, still able to shift but have to use toe of shoe to pull pedal up. happens two or 3x a day


you have 4 cyl or V6 engine, how much free play you have on clutch pedal (take your hand press clutch in untill gets harder to push in) should only have about 1" free play, and also when you release clutch while in gear should start engaging about 1 1/2" up when releasing

Clutch will not engage all the way


It sounds like you have the wrong clutch or pressure plate. Talk to the Chevy dealer parts manager.
