The slave cylinder for the clutch has lost pressure or has gone bad, don't panic!! not yet, pump the clutch about a hundred times, i'm not kiddin! sometimes it happens,you have a hydraulic slave cylinder clutch. they loose pressure if not used often, after you've pumped it 29times look under the driverside door towards motor to see if fluid is dripping down,, if not,, keep pumping until the clutch comes up;;;FEEL PRESSURE WHEN YOU'RE PUSHING CLUTCH IN hope this helps!!

    I see this is old but I'll comment anyhow for someone elses benefit....an 87 Samurai should have a clutch cable; not hydraulic. Most often a sticking clutch disc after long storage can be freed up by: warm the engine first, then kill the engine to get it in gear. Next, be sure you are aimed safely and start it in gear. Shift up a few gears if you can and then **** the Sami back & forth by power off/power on with the throttle as many times as it takes to free it.

Hydraulic clutch may have drained out. check clutch reservoir. If empty, replace slave and bleed system. Let us know if you need instructions.

    There are no hydraulics in a Suzuki samurai for the clutch. They are cable operated.

    Maybe actually know the vehicle you are trying to provide technical mechanical help for?

    Well, I've worked on hundreds of models, but I do guess wrong on rare occasion. This is a free service. If you can do better, you're welcome to join the team. We cannot afford the luxury of knowing off hand the details of every make model and year, or many questions would never be answered at all.

Engine back fires and has gas smell in oil


Sounds like a leaking or stuck open fuel injector might be allowing gas to leak down into the crankcase, thinning the oil.
