It's going to involve removing the transmission. Your clutch and/or pressure plate maybe bad. You'll be better off to replace them also, especially if you have a lot of miles. Before this happened, did the clutch catch when you would let off the pedal a little way up?

This actually sounds more like your clutch itself, however when you replace the clutch you can replace the throwout bearing at the same time, and also machine your flywheel too.All this work involves removing the transmission itself, you definitely need to devote a couple of days to this job, since it is a very labor intensive one at that.I hope I could help!!!

Hi i just put a new master cylinder a month back now today my clutch felt hard and when i put it in reverse heard a broken sound clutch went flat and oil came from the master what can the problem be


Umm...

A mechanical 'breaking noise' doesn't sound good. It's hard to diagnose a problem online without being there to see/hear the vehicle. But .. it may be that your clutch pressure plate has broken/ release/throwout bearing has broken?

It's difficult to see why the master cylinder should leak - unless it was incorrectly fitted in the first place?

Just to check ... The master cylinder is in the engine bay/compartment and is where you top up with clutch fluid. When a master cylinder fails it usually results in no pressure at the clutch pedal, not a leak.

The clutch slave cylinder is the one that does all the work. When you press the pedal hydraulic pressure is sent from the master cylinder to the slave cylinder - which then pushes the release/throwout bearing against the clutch pressure plate and 'disconnects' the driven plate .. allowing you to change gear.

The slave cylinder is the one that does all the hard work - it is located somewhere where engine and gearbox mate together, usually at the bottom right/left. It's usually the one that fails/leaks. It's quite easy to replace..

I don't think it is anything to do with reverse gear. It's more to do with the clutch pedal being depressed - and, I would suspect - something has failed.

The link below is generic images of a clutch:
clutch diagram Google Search

Basically, a clutch is 3 parts. There's the 'pressure plate' which bolts onto your flywheel. The pressure plate is a 'spring'. You depress the clutch pedal and the release/throwout bearing presses onto the centre of the pressure plate causing the 'fingers' - the springs - to bend back and take pressure off the driven plate - which is the link - the drive - between engine and gearbox.

If you have a leak your clutch will not work. This causes a 'grinding/crashing' noise when you try to change gear. The first thing you should do is check where the leak is coming from and do something about it.

The 'noise' that you mention may be due to the fact that the gears are 'grinding' as they try to mesh together without the use of the clutch.

The first thing you should do is check why there's a leak. It's difficult to see why a new master cylinder is leaking unless it was incorrectly fitted and damaged (pipes incorrectly connected..).

If it's the slave cylinder that is leaking - replace it. Easy job.

If Master cylinder and slave cylinder are ok - you have to look at your clutch unit. A clutch is always replaced with 3 parts ... throwout bearing/pressure plate and driven disk.

I just replaced a clutch in a Johndeere 4230 and it hard to shift it into gear. I was wondering if there were some way to adjust the clutch or do you have a solution. Thanks


Hi Tim:
Sounds like a fun project.
I'd double check:
- the position of the forks in the throwout bearing,
- confirm that the throwout bearing is installed facing the right way,
- confirm that the clutch plate is facing the right way
- check the pivot on the throwout lever, and
- check the clutch pedal linkages.
- Finally, (or first if all the preceding is too basic, Check the adjustment in the linkage to achieve about 1 inch free pedal travel.
My apologies for including what may seem exceedingly obvious items.
Here is a link to a bunch of youtube video clips that may assist you.

1999 chevrolet cavalier standard transmition engage cluch car will start go into gear but will not move what is problem


The clutch pressure plate may have failed or the clutch plate may be worn to the rivets therefore not engaging the transmission. Either of these would be making a loud noise when the clutch is engaged. Another problem could be that the hydraulic fluid is low and not allowing the throwout bearing to engage the clutch. Get underneath the car and have someone push the clutch pedal down and make sure the arm that moves the throwout bearing is moving correctly.

Grinding type noise when the clutch is put in


You may have a bad throwout bearing which is not good as the transmission will need to be pulled to replace it, If replacing the throwout bearing it is usually a good idea to also replace the clutch plate at the same time. This can be caused by keeping pressure on the clutch pedal while driving causing the throwout bearing to be constantly engaged therefore wearing out the bearing.

What may be the cause fore not being able to shift into any gear?


I'm assuming you have a manual on this one: Your clutch may have gone out. This would not allow it to be put in first gear. Check to see if you can work around the gears with the engine off. If so, most likely the clutch has gone out, in either the throwout bearing, or the master clutch cylinder.

Clutch grinding sound when engaged


it is the throw out bearing and if you go through that,you may as well replace the clutch,which must be removed to replace the bearing anyway.the clutch comes with a new bearing.

The gear grinds soemtimes and it is hard at time


you will need the clutch checked over. the clutch hydraulic system is first to check. check fluid level, if its low, top it off with brake fluid, and find where its leaking. if the fluid is full, make sure the pedal feels normal.if its in the hydraulic system, the trans doesnt have to come out, but a clutch replacement it will....... does the clutch slip? if so it will need replacement. if noisy only when depressing the pedal, the throwout bearing, or pilot bearing may be bad, and clutch replacement will be needed. be sure to have the flywheel resurfaced and replace the rear main oil seal while the flywheel is off.

I was bleeding my clutch now my clutch pedal stuck to the floor on a 1995 f 150


Most modern clutches are hydraulic. It may be that either the clutch master cylinder or slave cylinder are stuck or some sort of restriction in the line. Or, it may be that the throwout bearing or pressure plate have some sort of issue (this requires pulling the tranny and looking at the clutch, pressure plate (plate that rides against the clutch with springs to engage the clutch) and throwout bearing (bearing on the arm that presses against the pressure plate to engage the clutch).

Of course, I am assuming you have checked for any outside restrictions that would not allow the pivot arm to retract (missing spring or piece of ice or debris stuck in there).

Just some ideas :)
