Computer has no impact on starting an engine by pushing it by using the manual transmission and the clutch. If it cranks and wont start normally, pushing it wont do anything to start it either.

Having trouble shifting gears what could the problem be? Also can you adjust the clutch?

Generally, when a transmission starts popping out of gear under load, it means there is a bad bearing in the trans. The shafts are no longer parallel and that makes the gears push each other out of place. If you're having trouble shifting, it's probably either a bad clutch or (by the evidence presented) you've worn out the synchro rings. Either way, it means pulling out the transmission. The clutch is hydraulic, so it adjusts automatically. If it isn't working, then parts have to be replaced or fluid added.

If your starter goes out what can u do to start ur vehical back up after your starter goes out?

If you have a manual transmission, just turn the key on, but not to the start position. Get a buddy or 2 to push. Shft it into 2nd gear and push the clutch in, puush the car and let the clutch out.
if you have an automatic transmission, you have to replace the starter.

Low power

if it revs a lot but doesn't actually speed up, that means the clutch is slipping. This can occur if transmission oil is LOW but also the clutch plate is a wearable item and does need replacing once worn out. Your actual transmission should be ok if this is all the problem is. The clutch is essentially what transfers the power from the engine to the transmission, through the use of the clutch pedal. the clutch is made up of a clutch disc, and a pressure plate, and a pilot bearing, more or less.

The clutch disc acts sort of like a brake pad, and sits in between the pressure plate and the flywheel. When you let off of the clutch pedal, the pressure plate contacts the clutch disc, and pushes it against the flywheel, locking the transmission and motor together, thus transferring engine power to the transmission.

When the clutch wears out, the clutch disc no longer has enough friction material to effectively 'lock' both together, and the full power can no longer be transferred, which is when the transmission slips. Eventually the car won't move if it isn't replaced.

In my opinion it'd be in your best interest to take it to your local dealer and have them check it out.

This is a common issue with any transmission of a car, and it is a fairly straightforward fix, however it may be somewhat pricey as it is a labor intensive job.

Just put in a new clutch master cylinder in and all the clutch peddle just pushes in so lightly and is not ingaging do you got to bleed the clutch

Yes, you have to bleed all the air out. There should be a bleeder on the slave cylinder for the clutch (the hydraulic unit that pushes on the clutch fork at the transmission). Start with the clutch pedal all the way up. Open the bleeder a bit and have someone push the pedal down slowly. When it is at the bottom, close the bleeder. Make sure that pressure is not taken off of the clutch pedal with the bleeder open or you will **** air in. After the bleeder is closed, pull the pedal back to the top and repeat until there is no more air coming from the bleeder. Be sure to check your fluid constantly and refill as needed through the procedure. If you let the fluid run out while you are bleeding it, you will put more air in the system and be back at square one.
Hope this helps. Good luck!

'05 Frontier w/ 6-speed manual transmission. Push the clutch straight in and truck will not start. Push the clutch in and hard to the left the truck will start just fine. No problems with starter,...

It's called the clutch switch and it's supposed to only allow current to the starter when the clutch pedal is depressed all the way down, releasing the clutch. It's bolted in front of the clutch pedal. Yours must be bad or shifted to the left somehow. Have it checked, then repositioned or replaced.

That is a fault indication for your transmission. I am not positive but I think that indicates a fault in your forth gear solenoid. Your transmission is not going to last very long driving it like that. When you stomp on the gas and it does not accelerate, your clutch discs are slipping and burning. It won't take much of that to ruin them. You may want to take it to a good Honda transmission place. I don't know about the older Hondas, but the newer ones don't have any provision for removing a pan and working on them. They don't even have a line replacable filter.
Check your transmission fluid dipstick. If its not a nice "bright" red color, you are probably burning up your clutches. The darker the fluid, the more contaminated it is.

Clutch doesn't want to disengage when the pedal is depressed. Oil level seems fine. Runs through the gears fine when the engine is off. I may mention here that it is a manual transmission. The problem...

It sounds like your hydraulics might have gone bad. They are no longer pressing the pressure plate hard enough in order to disengage the clutch disc from the flywheel.

If the pedal feels any different this may be an indication that the hydraulics are bad. Otherwise it could be the pressure plate fingers are worn enough where it won't have the spring pressure needed to push on the outer diaphragm to disengage the clutch.

Also there is no "oil" in a manual Saturn transmission, it is ATF, the same stuff you put in your automatic transmission.

You have a wire shorting out when you press the clutch. You will need to have help looking for it. Have someone set inside and press the clutch and look for a wire that is coming into contact with the linkage. Good Luck.
