1998 Honda Civic manual trans will not shift into gears. Car starts, push in clutch and it goes to the floor, release clutch and comes back up. Unable to put into gears. Brake fluid and clutch fluid seem...


Eric, how are you confirming whether or not the car goes into gear if you shift gears without the engine running? One way would be to put it in 1st and see if you can push the car. If you can't, it is in gear.

Another option is to roll the car slightly forward or backward (engine off) while trying to put the car in gear. Once it is in gear, then the car shouldn't move any further. However, if it goes into gear, DO NOT start the car without taking it back out of gear.

The clutch is much more likely to be the problem than the transmission.

If the clutch fluid ever ran dry, then the clutch hydraulics will need to be bled of air. Otherwise, the problem could be the clutch master cylinder, slave cylinder or throwout bearing. Since you didn't report the clutch slipping (e.g. engine revving without accelerating when in gear) it is likely not the clutch disks themselves.

Loud snapping noise heard when changing gears


From the way you've described it your gear stick linkages maybe on there way out. When changing gear does the car resist getting into gear?

If it's more of a crunching sound then I would try double de clutching, to do this you need to:
change gear as usual but instead of holding down the clutch throughout the gear change hold it down to take the vehicle into neutral then release the clutch then push the clutch down again and change into desired gear.
To change down it's basically the same principal but you push down the clutch to put the vehicle into neutral then push the throttle down just to pitch revs then release the throttle and push the clutch down to change into your desired gear, if it won't go in to gear easily then rather the throttle until it does.

You can go onto youtube and search for double de clutching and I'm sure some results will come up

hope this helps!

The car will go into gear but will not move


hello, check cables, and linkage, if clutch was bad, it wouldnt go into any gear, while running. or also turn off motor, put car in gear and see if you can push it, see if it is in gear, or you can push the bug, if it is in gear, and you can push car, either trans is bad or linkage needs to be adjusted,clutch could be slipping

Hello, I own a 97 miata and the clutch goes in gear but the car does not move.


Do you mean: The transmission goes into gear but the car does not move? Is somebody in the habit of coasting the car down hills with the clutch in so they don't have to shift? Coasting down a hill with the transmission in a low gear can cause the clutch disc to spin so fast that centrifugal force throws the lining off the disc. I blew up my clutch man! If this is the case you need a clutch job to learn an expensive lesson. Or starting out in second or third gear and slipping the clutch to get the car going. Just as bad just as expensive! Most have been told not to slip the clutch, Not all have been told not to coast in gear. If you like to coast put the transmission in neutral and let the clutch out. If this is not the case then the clutch is hanging up internally, put the car in gear and let is set over night. Can you push it with the clutch up? You shouldn't be able to. Now push the clutch down and let it up. If you can push the car now it is hanging up (sticking) internally. The clutch master/slave hydraulic system needs looked at.

When clutch pushed in it makes high pitched squeel


Im a mechanic, i think you will find it will be the clutch release bearing on the clutch fork, when you push the clutch in it will push the fork which will push the clutch release bearing onto the clutch plate which rotating with the engine revs
