2000 Toyota Tundra - Clutch Sticking

After driving for a while, was at a stop light, then when I let off of the clutch pedal went down and stuck. I can pull it up but will stick down when pushed in again.

Any help is appreciated.
thanks

    When I shift into reverse or 1st gear, the clutch pedal stays down to the floor. I can lift it with my foot but sometimes when the pedal comes about halfway back it travels to the floor again by itself. This only happens in reverse and first. The pedal is "sticky" in 3rd and 4th in that it will stick halfway up and then come all the way up. I have a 2003 Toyota Tundra.


    Thanks

    what would cause the clutch to stop working? fine one day and the next it's frozen stiff. i went to start the car and the clutch would not go down. it made a weird noise and then nothing just stuck and unable to start car. only owner and this is the 1st. time this has ever happened. i only drive it about 10 miles a month. was wondering if there might be a pedel cable that could have snapped? thank you for your help!

First - Check motor mounts - when you let off the clutch, your truck demands torque from the engine putting pressure on the motor mounts. If your motor mounts are bad, your engine will twist more then normal when release the clutch and it may pull your linkage cables tight to your accelerator. Also - you might check the spring at the throttle body and see if it is sprung or something.

2001 Camry 5 speed. It starts but it will not move. I can change gears without pushing in clutch. One mechanic said it was clutch and a different one said transmission is out. Which is it?


The clutch is not transferring power to the gearbox, which then is not turning, so that you can select gears without the clutch.Possibilities are
- clutch assembly has failed, possibly by the splined driven plate hub coming adrift
- clutch driven plate has become very worn and has lost contact
- slave cylinder has stuck through corrosion (assuming a hydraulic clutch) and is holding out the clutch independent of the pedal. This can be determined by watching it while someone depresses and raises the pedal.

I think it is unlikely the transmission input shaft has fractured.

On a 2000 Ford Focus my clutch is stuck in the pedal won't go down


The focus clutch system is hydraulic therefor, if no movement is possible at all it is most likely that there is something at the pedal causing this. Get down there with a good light and look if the pedal swivel pin did not come out or is partially out, a foreign object that got stuck in the top movement area of the pedal ect. If there is nothing found it can be the clutch master cylinder that need repair/ overhaul.

Manual Transmition, While driving the clutch pedal went right to the floo and stayed down. I lifted the pedal with my foot and with a light touch i pushed down on the pedal and it it began a grinding sound...


the slave cylinder on the trans works just like a brake cylinder, when fluid pressure is applied it flows into the cylinder and pushes against a clutch fork which engages a throw out bearing against the clutch pressure plate fingers. a couple things could have happened. I think your trans is fine but im sure the clutch fork or the pressure plate broke. I'm sorry but the trans is gonna have to be pulled. best wishes

I have a 89 toyota pickup 4 speed. When I'm stopped at a stop light, and let out on the clutch it seems like it has lost pressure. When I'm shifting down the road it shifts fine. I checked the fluid and it...


this sounds like the clutch slave is goin out, this unit is on the outside of the transmission. Possibly losing pressure!! Your transmission does not use transmission fluid, but instead gear oil. Have the following checked:
1. Clutch Slave (possibly worn)-this will cause soft or hard clutch pedal feel, slipping clutch, unintended clutch release, hard gear engagement, no/insufficient clutch movement.

*2. Clutch pedal Mounting Plate (possibly cracked)-this will cause improper gear engagement, hard gear engagement, soft pedal feel, insufficient clutch movement.

*this plate is located above the clutch pedal itself, apply pressure on the pedal with one hand while inspecting the plate for fatigue cracks(use a bright flashlight). This is very common on these models. This problem will eventually get worst and most mechanics never figure this out.

Stuck clutch


The clutch has rusted to the flywheel drive the truck down the road you will have to start it in gear (1st) while driving push the clucth pedal to the floor and keep pushing up and down on the gas pedal to get the truck to rock forwards and backward the clutch should brake loose.

Clutch problem


Its is totally acceptable to reuse a flywheel as long as it was machined to where a new finish was achieved.A machine shop will cut off about .020"-.050" to achieve a new,machined finsih.Same concept as turning brake rotors when performing a brake job.Have the clutch hydraulics checked,as this is what applies and releases the clutch when actuating the pedal.The clutch pedal engagement point is also adjustable up under the dash.One thing to remember when driving a manual trans vehicle is,for example,when sitting at a stop light.apply the brake and sit still.I can't tell you how many times i've seen people sit at a stop light,and rock the vehicle back and forth by applying then relasing the clutch pedal,causing the vehicle to pull forward a couple feet,then roll back a couple feet,pull forward,and roll back.This severely shortens the lifespan of the clutch,as it gets TOO hot.If at a traffic light,just apply the brake and sit still.There are correct and incorrect ways to drive a manual trans vehicle,all of which is determinate of how long the clutch will last.

Manual clutch


If it is a brand new clutch, it's not broken in yet, which is why it "sticks". Give it some time, though, and it will stop "sticking". It took a half mile of stop and go traffic for mine to stop doing that with my new performance clutch.
