I have a 1989 chevy geo tracker and ive had to replace the clutch and ive had nothing but problems with it not going into gear and now im told that it needs a new clutch arm and im told they dont carr


this is one of the most common failures , on track-kicks.
the cause is easy:
not replacing the cable at 100k or lubing it every 30k.
the acid test (created by me) is the 1 inch rule.
if the bell arm moves 1 inch (zero play) and the clutch fails to disengage then the clutch is bad.
if it does not move 1inch the cable system is bad.
easy huh?
see the full sad stories here. and cures. (suzuki stills sells the parts for a little while longer.. they are Chapter 11 here)

My Nissan 95 sentra clutch had crunched and pedal would not spring back, found that clutch cable had snapped, replaced this and now my clutch pedal is still not 100% springing back, it springs back en


Check the spring to see if it has snapped anywhere within it's coil.

Remove the cable and check operation of the pedal and spring mechanism.
If all is well, then with a lever, check that the clutch release arm on the gearbox is operational. If that is also sticking, then you will have to remove the gearbox to investigate further.
If not sticking, then also remove the clutch cable outer sleeve, and replace.

I was stuck in snow and attempting to get out. CRX 1988 5-speed manual clutch pressure was good until i got stuck again (AK thing) now pressure is clutch proper but won't engage any gear...as if in...


Sounds like your clutch needs replacing. Clutch discs consist of the same sort of material as brake pads. After so much friction and heat they deteriorate quite quickly. If your inclined and have a good assortment of tools you can probably replace the clutch yourself. However this means removal of the transmission so the proper jacks and such are something you should have for safety. The transmission is quite heavy and without the right equipment it could be dangerous.

The vehicle wont go into gear. It goes into the gears without having to step on the clutch but the vehicle wont move. Where do i begin


First you need to check if your clutch is moving. Does the pedal move freely and easily, or is there resistance? Second, does the throw out bearing arm move with the clutch pedal and cable or, when you move the pedal, is the arm sticking out of the transmission stuck in the pushed in position? If there is no resistance and the arm is not moving, you may have a frozen cable - there's little in the transmission to cause this problem since you stated you can shift into the gears.. You'll need a helper to push the clutch pedal as you push and pull on that arm. That arm will have either a cable or a small cylinder attached to it - I believe you'll find a cable. If that cable ( which is connected to the clutch pedal ) won't move then there's your problem. You may be able to lubricate it for a temporary fix but ultimately you need to replace it. If the cable moves fine as well as that arm then you probably have a broken disc in your clutch and will need to have it replaced. Unfortunately there is no quick fix if the cable moves. If it doesn't and you don't have any lubricating spray, get some oil from your kitchen and pour some on the end of the cable at the tranny and try moving that arm back and forth - you may need a screwdriver or other tool as an extension to help.
Good luck!!

The clutch petal goes to the floor with no pressure to it and the truck will not move


If you have a hydraulic clutch then you may be out of fluid - typically uses brake fluid. Follow the clutch cable where it comes out of the firewall - if it goes to a unit with a cap then check the fluid level inside. If it goes straight to the tranny then check the arm it goes to to see if it is loose. Possibly you can adjust the cable out to make it move that arm ( throw out bearing fork). If this doesn't work then you'll need to replace the clutch by removing the transmission - a good job for a mechanic as this is pretty involved in doing so.

Clutch pedal has no pressure


1991 Golf has a cable clutch, the cable pulls up on the arm you see outside the transmission. the arm rotates a shaft in the very tail end of the transmission which actuates a rocker arm which pushes a pushrod that travels up the center of the transmission and operates the clutch.

very complicated right?

anyway, the rocker arm in the tail end of the transmission is famous for cracking along its' splines and jumping over the shaft.
go to the local vw dealer or jobber who specializes in german parts.
you need the rocker arm and the cover plate for the end of the tranny.

remove the clutch cable from the arm, remove the end plate and you'll see the rocker arm, unclip the shaft, remove old rocker arm, and replace. should cost a maximum of $30-40(can)

How to relace clutch cable on 1995 saab se 900 turboon saab 900se


1. Remove the battery.
2. Remove the clutch cable end from the clutch arm end at the wire stop.
3. Slide out the rubber doughnut from the gearbox housing which holds the clutch cable
4. Move the distribution box nut and the alarm pin attached to it (some modules)
5. Disconnect the clutch cable holder from the fender and the data link holder.
6. Remove the drivers lower panel below the steering wheel and remove the air duct as well as the knee shield.
7. Slide out the fuse box holder and ICE Box (should be a black box with many wires going to it). You can remove the instrument cluster at this point but you can also do this without removing the cluster with a little patience
8. Move the pedal spring to one side and remove the eye catch for the cable.
9. Remove the clutch cable by pulling it out from the engine compartment
10. Reinstall in the reverse. Saab actually came out with a bulletin which Needed one to install two washers at the back of the new cable instead of one. The factory cable comes with one but you can remove the 2nd washer off the old cable and install it on the new cable so two exist. This helps take up excessive pedal slack.
