Question about GMC Sierra 1500

1 Answer

The clutch in my 1995 GMC Sierra 1500 2WD with 5.0 will not fully disengage. I cannot get the truck in or out of gear. I beleive this is my slave cylinder but i wanted to make sure its not a problem with the clutch master cylinder before i spend the money on a new part. The master cylinder has plenty of fluid in the resevoir. Do I just need to go ahead and replace the slave cylinder/

While the car is parked /switched off are you able to slip in the gears easily ? if so the fault is as you have confirmed of the clutch not able to disengage the transmission drive when the engine starts.
Now to confirm if this is the slave or the master the hydralics must be checked, check to see the movement of the slave, see that the system is bled and there is pressure in the system, make sure there is no leak or spongy feeling., if so it will be good to open and check the system to confrim without deciding to change with a blind feeling. In this case an overhauling of the system will be enough with the repair kit or the slave unit if found to leak.
So before you just go ahead please check to confirm

Car will not engauge into 1st or 2nd gear

the gear grinding noise is because the clutch plate is not fully disengaging and the input shaft is still driving. If you did not use the same length of push rod then the slave cylinder is not moving enough to disengage the clutch. Check it out that with the pedal on the floor the piston in the slave cylinder should be almost to the edge of the slave cylinder . That is where It should be to be working properly

Sounds like clutch adjustment or replacement. (Not disengaging the trans fully). Check to make sure you have enough juice in the clutch master reservoir and that there isn't a leak at the clutch slave cylinder first.........

4wheel drive will not go into any gears 5speed

do you mean the 5 speed manual transmission will not go into gear? and it is a 4x4 truck? I would check clutch linkage and fork or slave cylinder if it applies to this model. Is it grinding at all? Can you determine if the pressure plate is actually disengaging the cluch plate. If the pressure plate is properly disengaging then the problem may be the shift fork in trans is broke,wedged. trans mainshaft broke, I'm not sure but does that year have a removable floor pan cover under floor mat above trans? AS you can pull the top off trans and inspect without pulling trans out of truck.

I press my clutch and get no resistance and cant get into any gear? 2003 gmc sierra 8.1 4x4 2500hd 5 speed

Check fluid level in clutch master cylinder, if fluid is full then bleed clutch system.

If you still have no pedal resistance you will need a new master or slave cylinder for the clutch.
