I have read that the clutch linkage is hydraulic and not adjustable or serviceable. But you should check for fluid leakage a the boot on each end. If bad, you might want to just replace the master and slave as a set.

Cannot get it in gear with out jamming it in and it grinds going in.


Year make model?? I'm suspecting a manual transmission. Most hard shifts/hard to get in gear are due to a clutch problem. Suspect a worn clutch/defective slave cylinder/defective master cylinder/ improperly adjusted clutch cable just to name a few

Replaced clutch and now won't shift into 1st, 3rd, or 5th gear


if it worked before why a new clutch,,,(context wins, here/??????)
ok, so you the clutch is failing,
you never posted the symtoms, not really
does car start in gear with clutch depresses, or start to move
does car take off in 1st ?
or is it just moving fast issues>????
cant up shift, cant down shift
hard to shift. (blocks)
grinds.

my wild guess, based on no input is the clutch linkage,
was never adjustED
the side kicks (not sport 1.8L) all have
cable clutches, and the 1 inch rule stated here.
i bet you didnt adjust it or the linkage splines are damaged.
or the pedal is cracked , caused by bad cable.
always replace the cable first. is it breaks other things if not.

Hard to shift gears from shifter. Can go to transmission and shift easily.


loose or mis adjusted shifter cable to your transmission. usually, they break. stretched shifter cable? possible. manual transmission? did not specify. automatic? suggest cable problem,loose cable at some point,look with 2 people to see where the cables jumping during the shifting process. manual? suugest a bad or going bad slave cylinder on the side of the transmission,or low fluid to the clutch master cylinder.is the clutch pedal weak? or just goes to floor and will not come back up? this is sign of leaking clutch master cylinder,bad clutch master cylinder. or both. see brake fluid on ground under the car after you pump the clutch several times? either a bad clutch master cylinder,on the firewall,drivers side,just under the windsheild,or a bad slave cylinder on the side on the transmission under the car on the transmission. suggest that you look for fluid leakage. follow the trail of fluid to the source.

Hard to Shift Gears?


How is the clutch adjustment?
Is it releasing fully?
If you have a hydraulic clutch....is the brake fluid level in the clutch master cyl beside the brake master cyl full?
If you have the cable clutch.....is there only 1/2 inch of play..... if you pull up on the cable at the transmission end of the cable?

I have a 2004 mazda rx-8 6 speed manual transmission...i am having a real hard time shifting into gears...sometime it won't even bulge into gear, and that's when i have to use excessive forces just to put...


You need to check the clutch hydraulics i.e. the clutch master cylinder and the slave cylinder for their function, even if its cable operated try to adjust it so as it opens the clutch fork a little more to allow the clutch plate to be free,thus easy selection of gears.
If this fails thn you will have to replace the pro-kit i.e. clutch plate, pressure plate and release bearing.
Hope this helps!

How can i tell what kind of clutch i have?


Your clutch is self adjusting hydraulic design, when the clutch plate gets really worn the adjustment availiable runs out and the trans gets hard to shift, a clutch plate is like a brake shoe, the friction material wears off over time.
