Question about 1994 Nissan King Cab

1 Answer

Clutch? 4x4 v-6, will not shift into gear when running. I know the master and slave cylinder are actuating but not sure if they are throwing properly (seem to be). With engine off the gears can be engaged and clutch will hold vehicle in place. Am questioning if this is a clutch or gearbox issue.

My 1999 Nissan sentra is stuck in second gear won't shift to any other gears ..any ideas please help

You have not indicated whether your car is a stick shift or an automatic transmission.
If it is a stick-shift, look for a problem with the master cylinder or the slave cylinder on the clutch.
The clutch is actuated by hydraulics, and loss of brake fluid from the system will cause the car to stop shifting.
The master cylinder for the clutch is smaller than the brake master cylinder, and is mounted under the hood (in front of your knees while you are driving).
The slave cylinder is mounted on the transmission near the clutch assembly.
More often than not, the slave cylinder fails before the master cylinder.

If your transmission is an automatic, and the fluid is correct on the transmission dipstick, you may need a transmission overhaul, which can be very expensive.
God bless your efforts.

Manual transmission hard to shift gears on 1991 rodeo

old car, old post, why not.? Wow it even runs this old, shock !
m/T questions, dah STICK shift.
the clutch is dragging.!
some engines (size) have hydr. and others cable. I cant guess this.

step one is to make sure the free play in the clutch pedal is ok.
  • Cable clutch actuator.
  • hydr. clutch actuator, is auto adjusting.
in this case make sure the slave cylinder moves the slave clutch rod
3/4 to 1" if not, the slave or MC to it are bad.
all answers USA answers, not stated, by you.

2.6L is hyrd. clutch link
so is 3.2L engine. i dont have data on all engine used world wide.
IF hydra. linkages. is the MC dry, (clutch master cylinder)
is the slave leaking fluid. , bingo 2.
is the MC leaking from front or rear side? bingo 3

here is a link to the 3.2 slave

look same place but add , what engine you really have.

Clutch pedal sinks to floor and won't take gears. when it does take gear it will shift fine after a few minutes but now won't take gears at all

possible bad slave cylinder on transmission, you do have a hydraulic clutch, have you checked the fluid in it? it might be your problem. hope i helped!!

I installed a new clutch and now I cannot change gears when the motor is running. I replaced the slave cylinder, master cylinder, pressure plate, throw out bearing and clutch housing. 1995 Toyota Corolla

if you have bled the system properly,the only answer is you have fitted the friction plate on backwards.....(the word front,printed,on the metal centre goes toward you/facing you.)check to see if you have full travel on the actuating lever when pedal is fully depressed....

Wont shift into gear

Was the fluid low? Does the pedal have any resistance? does it feel normal? Did it happen all of a sudden? Does it shift into gear with the engine off? You say it doesnt shift into gear, but does the shifter move into gear or not? Or it does and the truck wont move? Sounds like maybe the SLAVE CYL isnt operating? leaking? theres more questions to answer.

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.

Cannot get into any gear

check make sure the clutch master cylinder working properly along with slave cylinder. both master and slave don't have to leak fluid to be faulty, the rubber seal inside the unit could be worned and when apply pressure the fluid blow by or seep between the rubber seal causing the the unit not to work properly giving you a weak feel and pressure at the pedal. both unit have to work properly in sync. if one are weak you will have the same issue. clutch should have a good tight feel not sloppy or weak. pressure plate will also play important role, weak pressure plate will also give you a weak pressure feedback from the foot pedal and also will cause the synchronizer in the transmission not to engage and work properly. check this basic item fist before messing with your tranny. clutch master and slave cyc are fairly cheap to fix and replace.
