You have a couple of things that could have gone bad. First, you need to find out if you have a hydraulic clutch or not. If so, you should check the fluid level, fill it, and bleed the air out of the system. If your clutch is not hydraulic, check the linkage, if it's cable actuated, see if the cable is broken or disconnected. If none of the above yield anything, then your throw-out bearing went out, and you will need a new clutch.

Why wont my car switch gears when turned on?


I assume this is a manual transmission, so in that case you have a clutch problem, how does the clutch pedal feel, soft allot of free play? Goes to the floor with no resistance?

91 nissan pathfinder 5 speedmanual.... Clutch pedal feels stiff and when i start it in gear the truck lunges forward like the clutch it still engaged.... Master and slave have been replaced and all hyd....


It really sound like you are going to need a new clutch. If the slave or master cylinders were bad they would feel loose, a stiff pedal usually means something came apart in the pressure plate.

Hi i drained and replaced the tranny fluid in my manual 2005 mazda 6 and now it wont go into any gear.is there air in the clutch line or did i just completely ruin my tranny?


Did you do anything with the clutch line? What type of fluid did you use in the transmission? How does the clutch feel(really tight/stuck, to the floor/soft, normal)?

I have a 89 toyota pickup 4 speed. When I'm stopped at a stop light, and let out on the clutch it seems like it has lost pressure. When I'm shifting down the road it shifts fine. I checked the fluid and it...


this sounds like the clutch slave is goin out, this unit is on the outside of the transmission. Possibly losing pressure!! Your transmission does not use transmission fluid, but instead gear oil. Have the following checked:
1. Clutch Slave (possibly worn)-this will cause soft or hard clutch pedal feel, slipping clutch, unintended clutch release, hard gear engagement, no/insufficient clutch movement.

*2. Clutch pedal Mounting Plate (possibly cracked)-this will cause improper gear engagement, hard gear engagement, soft pedal feel, insufficient clutch movement.

*this plate is located above the clutch pedal itself, apply pressure on the pedal with one hand while inspecting the plate for fatigue cracks(use a bright flashlight). This is very common on these models. This problem will eventually get worst and most mechanics never figure this out.

My 1991 Subaru Legacy won't go into gear


Does it go into gear ok when its not running? When its running does it grind when you try to put it in gear? Does clutch feel firm or soft when you push it in? If you can shift all gears when its not running then its a clutch problem. If you can't than its a transmission problem. Is it a hydrolic clutch or mechanical? I can only guess and i won't do that, i need this info to help you.

Help please!


I haven't fixed mine yet but sounds as we are having the same problem. My plan is this..once i get it the car in gear the clutch does not slip so I am going to change the slave cylinder first, if that does not fix it I will replave the clutch and presssure plate and bearing. Hopefully the cheap fix will do it for the time being. Clutch 100.00 yourself..shop cost around 500.00, slave cylinder yourself 50 to 60 dollars. Hmm..Guess we hope for the.

2000 accent clutch is soft


There is a bearing that presses on flat springs of the clutch plate and slides back and forth on a hollow tube when you press the pedal. These can get fouled with road crud and then hang now and then when you press the pedal and perhaps not fully disengage the clutch as it should producing either a stiff action or even worse, the gnashing of gear teeth. Some bell housings have inspection plates that can provide enough access to use some cleaner/lubricant on the hollow shaft on which the 'throwout' bearing must slide.
