I have a 2000 mazda 323 with a manual transmission. i have already change the clutch kit but the gear is still hard to shift


Check the hydraulic clutch operation. This is a clutch master cylinder with a reservoir on the firewall, and a clutch slave cylinder down on the bell housing of the transmission, with a steel tube running from the master to the slave cylinder. When clutch pedal is depressed, hydraulic fluid (brake fluid) is forced from the master to the slave. The slave cylinder should push out a little plunger that contacts the clutch fork lever-pushing it forward to engage the clutch.
Add brake fluid to the reservoir if needed. Watch the plunger on the slave cylinder: if it moves little, or not enough, try bleeding the slave from the bleeder valve. They are bled just like brakes. If bleeding doesn't help, your clutch master or the slave may need replacing. The master cylinder, like a brake master, has internal seals that hold hydraulic pressure, so force can be applied to the plunger on the slave cylinder.

Clutch noise


It's time to change the clutch with entire kit. Release bearing, pilot bearing, clutch plate, pressure plate and get flywheel turned. If that bearing flies apart inside your transmission it will leave you stranded and your release fork will be destroyed possibly causing more damage to the transmission housing. It is hydraulic and if the master cylinder is working properly you're not likely to notice any play in the pedal due to release bearing.

If this is a manual (5 speed) - you may have a broken shift fork. You'll want to either replace just the shift fork, or (best) - purchase a clutch kit for the truck as well as the shift fork; the kit will come with everything you need to replace the clutch. It is not necessary to replace the clutch components, however it's best to while you're in there, that way you know everything is new and good. Otherwise, after pulling the transmission, and verifying that the shift fork is the issue, then replace the shift fork. (It's best here, to replace the throw-out bearing, (it attaches to the shift fork) as it is most likely damaged.

Time to get the clutch, pressure plate, and throw out bearing replaced.
And on a car that old the pin or ball which the fork pivots should be replaced also.

Hard to get in first gear makes noises going into


synconizers or shift fork bent, but most likely your throw out bearing is not dissengageing your pressure plate al the way. check your clutch linkage.

Why wont my clutch disengage? its hard to shift gears


It sounds like you got air in the lines after changing the stuff. you will need to bleed it like you do the brakes. it may take two people to to do tis. one to pump the clutch while the other works the fitting to let the air out. I hope this helps, and please be kind with a thumbs up. I need to good marks. Raz

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!

Manual clutch


Sounds like the wrong pressure plate. I got a kit from Autozone and it was the wrong pressure plate. My old one was obviously thicker. With the new pressure plate, the shift fork was almost at full travel before any resistance. That's no good. I had to pull the transmisssion again and use my old pressure plate. Luckily, it was in good condition. Then, the clutch slack was easily adjusted and works great.
