Clutch petal stays up with too much pressure car stays in neutral like pedal is pressed to floor


Sounds like an internal clutch/pressure plate issue. Possible broken torsional vibration spring in the clutch assembly keeping clutch engaged. The transmission will have to be removed and clutch inspected/replaced.

How to adjust 95 geo tracker clutch


engaging?
you meant dis-engage im sure.
pedal up is engaged,
pedal at floor dis-engages it.
my guess, is the clutch drags unless i push the clutch pedal 100%
to the floor.
1: bad cable is 90% cause. non last this long.
2: no free play is way too loose.
3: broken lever on the pedal top. caused by #1

all fail modes covered here.

High idle unless driving in gear, but if clutch is pushed in or car is in neutral rpm goes up to 2900


run fault codes to check for accelerator position sensor problems . Check for vacuum leaks. If cable accelerator then check that the return spring on the end of the cable is attached and not missing.

Cannot pass into gear, have a smell of rubber


If the car won't shift into gear, the smell of rubber is probably the clutch pressure plate slipping on the flywheel instead of engaging it. This indicates the need for a clutch repair. Could be a worn clutch pressure plate and/or a worn throwout bearing/fork. This is a job which can be done by a home mechanic, but if you don't have tools, floor jacks/stands, take the car to a mechanic.

Clutch will not engage when it was engaging perfectly to begin with.


Your car has a hydraulic clutch release system, it is defective, either the master or slave cylinder is leaking or pulling in air and this causes the clutch pedal to go to the floor.

Clutch suddenly has no resistance and car won't shift gears. Fluids were low, have put fluid in the reservoir but still doesn't work. How do you bleed a clutch line?


on the transmission there is a slave cylinder that works like a brake cylinder, when you apply pressure to the clutch pedal a rod inside the vehicle under the dash pushes into a clutch master cylinder, (almost like a brake master cylinder without the reservoir, as the clutch master cylinder works off the brake master cylinders reservoir) the plunger in the clutch master cylinder applies fluid pressure to the slave cylinder,(located down on the trans near the clutch fork assembly) which projects a piston rod into the clutch fork dis-engaging the clutch. To bleed the clutch slave cylinder locate the bleeder screw on the slave cylinder,break loose so it loosens and tightens easily. Check fluid in brake master cylinder reservoir,fill if needed, while bleeder on the slave cyl is closed have a helper push clutch pedal to floor and back 7-8 times, (At first the clutch might stay at the floor, just pull it up by hand or foot and continue) after several pumps with no rest time push pedal to the floor and hold down with foot pressure, at this time loosen the bleeder on slave untill fluid leaks out, watch for air bubbles, close bleeder and repeat untill there is no sign of air bubbles, (make sure to check fluid in the brake master cylinder and keep fill as needed, do not let fluid get less than 1/2 empty as it might **** air and you will have to start over) If this does not bring clutch to operate then you need to check if slave cylinder is reachig its full extension of push rod or not. If it is not then you will have to replace the clutch master cyl or the clutch slave cyl or both as seals are bad and wont hold pressure. Or you need to inspect the clutch fork,the throw-out bearing, or the pressure plate fingers and clutch plate for failure or broken bent parts. I hope it turns out to be a easy fix on that clutching thing.

Clutch pedal sometimes engages when near floor


Check fluid level on clutch reservoir. Check also for any leaks at the clutch clyinders and lines. if it is low on fluid, or you have to drain fluid, remember to bleed the clutch.Have somebody pump the clutch and turn the clutch bleeding screw until only fluid comes out.

Trunk lock won't open


Usually the problem is that the handle has not returned to the fully down position, probably because it's getting old/rusty.

When this happens on my Outback I just push the handle down until I hear it engage, then pull up and the door opens.

Some people lube the handle regularly. I haven't had to yet.
