I have a 1998 Dodge Dakota 3.9 with a 5 speed. I am having difficulties with the clutch and am trying to figure out if it is the clutch needing replaced or if it is the hydraulics.


Bad hydraulics (leaking/spongy) and worn out clutch have opposite symptoms. If the clutch does NOT ENGAGE - get the vehicle moving - you probably need to replace the clutch and/or pressure plate.
If the clutch does NOT DISENGAGE - you can't get the transmission into gear, or there is difficulty or grinding when trying to shift between gears - your hydraulic system is not moving the clutch release arm far enough to disengage the clutch.

2002 toyota celica clutch is there an adjustment or is it hydraulic?


It is hydraulic and has no adjustment, it self adjusts as the disk wears out. If the pedal is high up when it engages the clutch and harder to push than before you need a new clutch.

Wont go in gear when on it only goes in gear when car off


It's a manual transmission, then? If it is, your clutch is not working. You need to check at the transmission's bell housing to see if the clutch pedal being depressed causes the clutch fork to move-either forward or backward, it should move about an inch with the pedal pushed to the floor.. The clutch pedal will either be cable operated, or it will be a hydraulic clutch with a clutch master cylinder on the firewall, and a steel tube going down to the bell housing, where a small "slave cylinder" operates the clutch fork.

If you see the clutch fork move a fair amount, at least an inch, then you probably need a new clutch disc and pressure plate. A clutch job means removing the transmission to replace the clutch.

If the clutch fork does not move, either the cable has too much slack-for cable operated clutches, or the hydraulic unit has a problem-for hydraulic operated clutches. One of your hydraulic cylinders may be bad, either the clutch master cylinder or the slave cylinder.

I was told the clutch on my 2003 mazda protege is hydrolic....how do I go about adjusting it


The whole idea behind the Hydralic Clutch is there is no adjustment.If the clutch is slipping then you need a new one.If you are having trouble getting it into gear then you may have a bad clutch master and or slave cylinder.Let me know if i can help.

Clutch cable location


Hello siscabella, you may not have a clutch cable, most newer cars use a hydraulic clutch.
You should be able to call any parts store to confirm that your clutch is hydraulic.
Many prefer the old machanical clutch because you could adjust the cable to get more clutch, but, the hydraulic clutches are not designed so you can adjust it. If you have a weak clutch, you will most likely need a new clutch in the near future.
I hope that I've been helpful.

Clutch is slipping and needs adjustment how


Sorry but all the newer cars don't have a adjustment's they are all hydraulic clutches. They have adjustments for the cable but it wont help the clutch. It needs a new clutch and maybe a flywheel if it's burnt and slippin. I hope this helps ya.

Leaking brake fluid now my clutch not working !!! help


Are you sure it was brake fluid leaking? If you were leaking transmission fluid then that could cause some of the mechanical workings to stall, in turn causing the clutch to freeze-up. The other (more likely) problem is that you were leaking hydraulic fluid for the hydraulic clutch.

It sounds like you will probably have a hydraulic clutch, and fluid was leaking. If you accidentally topped-up the hydraulic fluid for the clutch with brake fluid, that would be an interesting scenario... not sure how the mis-match would work out. If the hydraulic clutch fluid is simply low, you can flush it out, put new fluid in there and get it to a dealer to repair the clutch
