Hi if your clutch is a cable operated one then it could mean the cable has snapped, if its hydraulic then the problem will be either the master or slave cylinder, all of these parts can be replaced but if its hydraulic then it can be a bit of a nightmare to replace, also if it is hydraulic then you wont know if its the master or slave cylinder that has gone without changing one of the parts, most of the time its the slave cylinder located on the gearbox but it can sometimes be the master cylinder that is located near the bulk head at the place where the clutch pedal comes through the bulk head into the bonnet.

Gear doesn't engage


When the problem acures again.Have someone step on the peddle,then release does the clutch leaver in the bell housing go back allso,if not loosen the line at slave cylinder,does it go back now,if not might be binding at trans input shaft.if it does release tighten line again pump peddle 3 times and go after master cylinder line.with peddle released does fluid squrt out.has the fluid ever been changed.like all fluids they absorb moisture that freezes or creates dirt from rust and binds the system.i would flush with DOT3 or DOT4 BRAKE FLUID.

I have a 1990 535i and the clutch peddle does not come all the way back up when after I let off the peddle. What would make this problem happen and what can I do to fix it?


You could have air in the clutch cylinder or there could be wear in your clutch master cylinder, You need to start by checking the fluid the the reservoir and then try bleeding the clutch, if this doesn't help then you will need a repalkcement master cylinder, It is recommended that you replace the slave cylinder at the same time as well as the flexible rubber hose.

Sounds like you have a leak in your clutch master or slave cylinder. I had the same problem. They are not too expensive at kragen or auto zone. The master cylinder is located on the right side of your engine closest to the driver. Open the cap and check if theres fluid. If its low or empty then there might be a leak. The slave cylinder is located on the passenger side under the car bolted to the transmission. That could be leaking or not working properly. I would replace both if you can. Hope this helps.

Me and a mate have been trying to bleed my clutch on my 80 series for 5 hrs and carnt get anywhere. What the hell am I doing wrong? I can do everythingt else other then 1 of the simplist job


Just follow the procedure in the right order. Fill the clutch reservoir on the master cylinder to the max and leave the lid loose. Fit a transparent plastic pipe on the bleed nipple on the clutch slave cylinder bleed nipple. Put the other end of the pipe into a jar to catch the waste fluid. Put some thick grease around the base threads of the bleed nipple, this stops air being sucked in via the threads whne the nipple is slackened off. Loosen the bleed nipple by 1/3 of a turn. Have your mate slowly depress the clutch peddle. When he has reached maximum travel have him hold it there while you turn the bleed nipple a third turn back to tight. Have your mate release the clutch peddle, clutch fluid from the master reservoir should now fill the the master cylinder. Have you mate press the peddle a quarter way and then release the bleed nipple a 1/3 of a turn. Have your mate depress the clutch peddle all the way to maximum travel. Again tighten off the bleed nipple before releasing the clutch peddle. Keep doing this process until no more air bubbles can be seen in the fluid in the pipe attached to the bled nipple. Every four cycles or so check on the fluid level in the master reservoir and keep topped up with fresh fluid. When everything completed tighten the bleed nipple, it is not necessary to tighten the hell out of it as at some point you may need to do this again. Wipe everything down pump the clutch peddle a few times to be sure of correct operation and no leaks.

Hard to get in gear whining noise when clutch peddle is depressed. and where to put clutch fluid.


Get it to a garage - if the clutch has worn out - 9 years old and its quite possible - you don't want to have to have a new gearbox as well.

Cars cost!!

GOOD LUCK

1987 Nissan PU, I replaced the master and slave clutch cyls. I bleed the system and there is no air in the lines but peddle does not get hard. Could the new master or slave cyl be bad? I see you can adjust...


The shaft should come all the way back, when the pedal is back, the master shaft should be adjusted so there is very little play in the pedal. But it needs some play. Make sure you can see the slave cylinder move when you depress the clutch pedal, you will need help to operate the pedal, while you look.

there is a clutch switch on the end of clutch peddle this is for safety reasons so you dont launch into lets say your house if it was in gear when you tried to start the truck without pushing in the clutch .i dont recommend bypassing the switch though there are two wires that go to it if put together that will bypass the switch.
