Hi!!
Here is a description of how the clutch works and bleeding procedure. If bleeding the system do not fix the problem, check the master and slave system for proper functioning..
GENERAL DESCRIPTION AND SYSTEM OPERATION DRIVING MEMBERS The driving members consist of two flat surfaces machined to a smooth finish. One of these is the rear face of the engine flywheel and the other is the pressure plate. The pressure plate is fitted into a steel cover which is bolted the flywheel. DRIVEN MEMBERS The driven member is the clutch disc with a splined hub. The splined hub is free to slide lengthwise along the splines of the input shaft and drives the input shaft through these same splines. The driving and driven members are held in contact by spring pressure. This pressure is exerted by a diaphragm spring in the pressure plate assembly. OPERATING MEMBERS The clutch release system consists of the clutch pedal, the clutch master cylinder, and concentric slave cylinder. Unlike the former system to release the clutch by the release lever and release fork, the concentric slave cylinder type makes the concentric slave cylinder directly perform the clutch release by the generated pressure through the clutch pedal operation.
AIR BLEEDING Bleed the hydraulic system to remove the air which entered when the pipes were disconnected for repairs. The clutch/brake fluid in the clutch/brake reservoir must be maintained at the MIN level or higher during air bleeding. 1. Attach a vinyl hose to the bleeder plug. Place the other end of the vinyl tube in a glass container half– filled with brake fluid. 2. Slowly pump the clutch pedal several times. 3. While you press the clutch pedal, loosen the bleeder screw until the fluid starts to run out. Close the bleeder screw. 4. Repeat Step 3 until there are no air bubbles in the fluid. 5. Fill the reservoir with brake fluid up to the proper level.
Good Luck!! Don't forget to rate this post!!

VERY Bizarre Combination of "Symptoms" I Believe Relating to Clutch or Transmission, or heaven forbid worse! Please help!


Hi,

First, congrats on the most detailed problem description I have ever seen! Seriously, it does assist us.

All this is completely consistent with your clutch not releasing properly, meaning that the gearbox is still turning when the pedal is depressed. The syncros in the gearbox will then keep you out of gear, that is what they should do. You can indeed shift into higher gears however when driving as the gearbox revs more nearly match to what is needed. The jerking forward when you hit the starter is due to the poor old starter motor having to move the whole car instead of just the engine, because the clutch has not released !

Now as to why, it is likely that the clutch release fork has broken, inside the housing. I had this once with a Mazda, and symptoms were exactly as you describe. The gearbox has to be removed if this is the problem, and you should also then take the chance to renew the clutch, pressure and driven plate both, unless quite new.

Also a possible cause is a complete loss of clutch fluid if a hydraulic clutch, or a broken cable if that type of clutch. Loss of fluid in a hydraulic clutch can be easily checked in the fluid reservoir, and can occur if a hose splits

My clutch goes all the way to the floor I have a standard Camaro 96 3.8


clutch pedals are suposed to go all the way to the floor , you sure you dont mean brake pedal (cus thats bad ! ) clutches should travel all the way to floor and release the "grab" of the engine about 2/3 down , this way they are more smoothly allowing shifting thru the gears and not jerking as you shift thru the gears , if clutch pedal does not start to "grab" the engines power by 2/3 off the floor and fully "grab"its power all the way up(slipping) ,and you have a hydraulic clutch (96's do) then the clutch disk may require replacement or there is a oil leak in the clutch/master/slave cylinder , look for small oil leaks from under car in area of foot pedals
clutches should be replaced as an assembly that includes , disk ,pressure plate, throwout bearing , with engine side clutch plate magnafluxed for heat cracks and any hydraulic oil leaks replaced or repaired

86 acura legend manual transmission shifting problems


so the problem is that you cannot get it into gear from a stop
(grinds trying to force into gear) . if you have a clutch pedal, what I mean is that clutch pedal has pressure behind it,moves up and down by itself, then its a clutch assy needs replaced.clutch disc/pressure plate/release bearing. if there is no pedal,falls to floor, its either clutch slave or clutch master failure issue(lost all fluid). but nothing points at needing a transmission,it should be fine

My clutch pedal has to go all the way to the floor to start engine and switch gears. What should I do?


check the fluid in the bell housing and add clutch fluid if needed. If needed check often and if problem still persist than you need to replace clutch assembly, slave cylinder, clutch plate whole shebang. $200. If you don't will cause major problems down the road enough to where your truck won't switch gears. But, b4 you do that check the adjustment on the clutch pedal you may only need to make a minor adjustment to where you push the clutch in a 3rd of the way down to shift/start your vehicle. listen 4 any changes when you push the clutch to the floor or when you take your foot off.

Clutch went down to floor would not return


Your clutch master cylinder "seal" is worn-out.
It make your brake system can't build up pressure to brake fluid.
Easily just fix it with repair kit or change whole new complete set.
