Question about Geo Prizm

1 Answer

I am having a problem with getting the transmission out of gear. When I push in the clutch it goes all the way to the floor and there is a real short throw to the clutch pedal. It seems to freeze up too after going into reverse. I have to shut off the vehicle to get it out of gear. We filled the clutch resevoir and bled it to make sure it wasn't something that simple. Now what???

Wont go in gear when on it only goes in gear when car off


It's a manual transmission, then? If it is, your clutch is not working. You need to check at the transmission's bell housing to see if the clutch pedal being depressed causes the clutch fork to move-either forward or backward, it should move about an inch with the pedal pushed to the floor.. The clutch pedal will either be cable operated, or it will be a hydraulic clutch with a clutch master cylinder on the firewall, and a steel tube going down to the bell housing, where a small "slave cylinder" operates the clutch fork.

If you see the clutch fork move a fair amount, at least an inch, then you probably need a new clutch disc and pressure plate. A clutch job means removing the transmission to replace the clutch.

If the clutch fork does not move, either the cable has too much slack-for cable operated clutches, or the hydraulic unit has a problem-for hydraulic operated clutches. One of your hydraulic cylinders may be bad, either the clutch master cylinder or the slave cylinder.

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.

Manual transmission wont go in gear


You have a clutch slave cylinder failure and the reservoir is empty. Replace the slave cylinder and bleed the air of the system after refilling the reservoir.

Clutch goes to the floor


You will have to be more specific in order to get help on this site .... does the clutch go to the floor randomly without pushing it with your foot? Does it just go to the floor when you press it with your foot? If the last is yes then does the transmission disengage when the clutch goes to the floor as it should or does something else happen? Normally you would want your clutch to go to the floor ... see where I'm going with this?

No pressure clutch pedal goes straight to the floor 1988 holden r


If hydraulic actuated mechanism, loss of fluid, defective master cylinder or slave cylinder at the clutch. Missing pin or other part between slave cylinder and clutch arm. Loose or broken slave cylinder mounting. Missing pin or broken part between pedal and master cylinder. If mechanical linkage, look for broken components or missing pins at moving joints. If you tried to shift into gear with engine running, you may have damaged the transmission gears.

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.
