Adjust clutch 1987 Dakota 5 speed trans.


If I remember been a while there is no adjustment to the clutch. It is controlled by a hydraulic piston that disengages the clutch when you push down on the peddle.

My car is a 5 speed. I can only get it in one gear which is 5th the other gears it wont move. Is it the clutch or the transmission the trow out bearing has been making a noise for a while


It is possible that the throwout (clutch release) bearing is worn. In addition, one of the arms on the pressure plate could be broken or bent. If your car has a hydraulic clutch, check the fluid level befrpoe deciding on any major repair.
Has the clutch been replaced before, and how many miles are on the vehicle?.

When driving i go to shift and push the clutch in and it will not go in to gear unless being forced


there could be a couple things going on here -- first check the clutch fluid reservoir and make sure that there is fluid in there,, if there is no fluid in the reservoir then you most likely have air in your hydraulic line,, top off fluid and bleed the air out of the line.
could also be a bad slave cylinder or a bad master cylinder -- the o-rings inside the unit may be bad and not holding the pressure properly.
these are the things that I would check first,,
I hope this helps, if you have any other questions about this problem please feel free to ask.

Clutch go's all the way to floor with no resistents can not shift gears engine won't stay on. 1987 5 speed pickup truck


Sounds like the hydraulic fluid may have leaked out of a line or the slave cylinder is leaking, or the master clutch cylinder has an internal leak that doesn't actuate the clutch effectively when the pedal is pushed to the floor.

I have a 1995 Dodge Dakota 5 speed. The gears are


im not 100% but i think that truck has a hydraulic clutch. if it does for sure then check the fluid level if its a cable or linkage type then it may be out of adjustment. Ether way (low on fluid or out of adjustment) the clutch may not be fully disengaged while your trying to shift. Start there before getting to far into it.

Problem with 1993 nissan altima PLEASE HELP


It is a clutch problem. Do you know if you have a hydraulic clutch or a clutch cable? If you have a cable, it might need adjusted. If you have hydraulic you might have a bad slave cylinder or clutch master cylinder.

Hydraulic clutch grinding from 1st to 2nd - Toyota 1985 Pickup


Yes, your clutch might be worn and/or out of adjustment or the trans is worn. Your clutch may be fine also. Toyota's have a problem with there shifter bushings and seats. They brake and crack also causing shifting problems. And some times only one gear depending on the condition.If yours is broken,crack or damaged, you can find the parts from Toyota and there a whole lot cheaper than a clutch. Also I recommend adjusting the clutch if possible. Not all are adjustable. Check your clutch fluid.

Difficulty changing from 1st to 2nd in my 4x4


Tarpgrove:

Does the car grind when you put it into reverse? If so, the clutch is not fully disengaging and needs to be most likely bled or adjusted. It Is the clutch hydraulic oil they changed, correct?

If it does not grind when putting into reverse, I would ask the shop that did the clutch if they changed the fluid in the trans. And if so, what fluid they used. Check your owners manual for the correct fluid specification.

Also if your clutch was replaced because it was dragging, not because of slipping, you may have done some damage to 2ed gear synchronizer causing this problem as well.

Regards and and good luck.
