Is your battery charged? turn the head lights on while you try to start and have someone look at the headlights while you try to turn engine over, if the headlights dim while the key is turned to start position, that means the starter is drawing fire. if starter does not turn while doing this, i would say bad starter. if not that,,,there is a neutral safety switch on the clutch. just to make sure your car does not start while in gear, the factory installeda switch on the clutch pedal to insure children and minors can not start your car. unless the clutch in pushed in. the switch is on the clutch pedal, just above the brake pedal[pad] look for a plunger type switch above the pedal.. i hope this helps!!!!

Can 2002 sunfire slave cylinder leak and make the clutch slip from the fluid. their's no fluid in the resiver and car wont start


If the resivor is empty then when you push on the clutch it isn't disengaging allowing the engine to start. The best way to fix this problem is to install a new slave cylinder fill the resivor with fluid have someone push the clutch down open the bleeder valve to let the air out. close the bleeder valve release the clutch push down the clutch hold it to the floor open the bleeder let the air out close the bleeder and let up on clutch. continue doing this until you have a stream of fluid coming out of the bleeder with no air. after every 2 or 3 times check the resivor and fill as needed and dont run it out of fluid while doing this or you will have to start over. After you get a steady stream of fluid from the slave cylinder bleeder when you push on the clutch you will be able to feel the clutch disingage and be able to start the engine and drive.

2003 chevy s-10 want start sometimes


there is a clutch switch on the end of clutch peddle this is for safety reasons so you dont launch into lets say your house if it was in gear when you tried to start the truck without pushing in the clutch .i dont recommend bypassing the switch though there are two wires that go to it if put together that will bypass the switch.

My 1998 s10 2.2 truck will not start


-If the starter is only clicking or it is acting as if the clutch pedal was never pushed down- it is either one two things, (1) the click, click sound may be due to a bad battery connection or bad wire contact to the starter motor. (2) the neutral saftey switch which is attached to the clutch master cylinder on the inside of the vehicle, (under the dash) is deffective or needs adjusting-it is easier to simply replace it., no complex tools are needed for either repair, just a voltmeter to check wire connections on the battery to starter motor, or a small screwdriver driven socket to remove the screws holding the lower part of the dash together (below the steering column)- I hope this was helpful, I ran into a lot of problems after I swapped an engine and rebuilt the transmission on my 98 s10 but I eventually worked most of the problems out.

im a little confused re clutch replacement normally in order to start a manual transmission car the clutch pedal needs to be pressed down all the way before the car will turnover . as you say it will start but you need to push down clutch am i right? but when you try to put it into gear grinding ?wont go in to gear yes is this whats hapinin?ok the way that these clutches work nowadays is that there is a system similar to brake system there is a resivoir for the oil and a slave cylinder that pushes the clutch throwout leaver so that the gears can be changed did you see a small cylinder that pushes against the clutch lever? does it have a hose coming from it ? this system needs to be bleed just like the brakes on your car . find the resivoir small resivoir open lid and fill with brake fluid now go under car and find slave cylinder it will be somewhere near the transmission and bellhousing there will be a hose attached there will also be a bleed nipple attached you need to open this a few turns and let it drip dont press clutch pedal when bleed screw is open it will bring air into system , you want to remove all the air in the system so get a friend to go into car and pump clutch pedal then hold it to the floor while its being held down you open bleed screw until clutch pedal hits the floor tighten bleed screw then tell friend to pump up again do this 5 or 6 times making shure clutch fluid level doesnt drop down too far keep topping it up with the fluid that squirts out while bleeding this way you dont waste fluid as well as keeping fluid from hitting the ground .anyhow after trying this slave cylinder bleeding proceedure .try to see if car will go into gear . also see that there is no adjustment on slave cylinder . also i hope that you put the clutch facing the correct direction flywheel side towards flywheel . let me know how you do with this project
