Where to put gear oil in gomoto 107cc engine, have gears but no cluch One side have oil cap to put oil other side have small cap to open where gear ratio is printed but everything is dry inside

Friend, you have a hydraulic clutch. Nothing to do with transmission oil. Use brake fluid and fill the empty container by removing the cap from the empty container. Fill the container and start pumping the clutch pedal, or go to the clutch slave cylinder on the transmission and open the bleeder at the slave cylinder top while someone pushes the clutch pedal down, close the bleeder then let off the clutch. Do this a few times and the clutch will begin to work. At times it will take a while before the clutch comes all the way back up, but eventually it will. Now, there has to be a reason the clutch master cylinder was empty. A possible leak. Check to see if any fluid loss while in use. You may need to replace the slave cylinder. I've been through this and it's fairly easy to do.

I have clutch problem it's like a have no clutch

The clutch system is hyrdrolic all oil NO AIR.
Oil will not compress air dose so if you have air in the oil clutch system you have no clutch or height grab issues or gear engagement problems mostly rev, and 1st gear .
However it could also be a shattered clutch disk that you would have to remove transmission bell housing ect, to check.
I would start with the clutch lines and cylinders .Their is a master cylinder a slave cylinder and a reservoir .Check the RES. is it empty do you see fluid on the bottom line any oil wipe it off push the pedal check line again no fluid leak is good. Now look at the master cylinder it connects to the pedal on one side and comes through the fire under the vacuum booster control follow the line from the reservoir it connects to it .Look for fluid leaking down on the clutch pedal and ware to bushings this is the biggest ware part . If you see fluid its leaking and if fluid gets out air is getting in and over time will reach a point ware the air wins and can't put enough force on the fluid to disengage the springs on the pressure plate that want to put the force\of the engine on that plate and disk and flywheel.This what the slave cylinder dose.Think of it like a light switch its on or off pedal out on pedal in power off.
This requires a total rebuild of all clutch parts at least the slave cylinder and turning the flywheel so its a smooth surface if you skip the turning the clutch will fail in 20000 miles you might getaway with the master cylinder depending on the condition and the res as long as it dosn;t leak and is clean

Transmission oil not flowing from masterr cylinder to slave cylinder when bleeding

of course it won't be
transmission oil is mineral oil and brake fluid is vegetable base oil
no connection between the two systems
if you have been putting transmission oil in the brake or clutch systems, the rubbers will be expanded and n blocking all the holes and hoses

2002 BMW 325 will not drive in any gear

Hi well this could be a few things, is it auto? or manual? if it is manual then this could be the clutch is warn and needs replacing, or, you have a problem with the hydraulic clutch system ie a leak, or low fluid levels, to check low fluid levels, check the brake fluid reservoir as this also supply's the clutch top up if required, also check the prop shaft under the vehicle make sure the "doughnut" ( its a big rubber ring in the middle of the shaft) has not broken separating the 2 parts of the prop, to also check the clutch master and slave cylinder pump the clutch rapidly and see if it gets harder and then put in gear and see if it will drive , if it does then you might have air in the clutch system maybe a leaking cylinder, to check this, look under the dashboard where the clutch peddle is and see if it is damp on the carpet, this will be a leaking master cylinder and will need to be replaced, for the slave cylinder just check under the vehicle to see if either side of the gearbox is wet, this will be a leaking slave cylinder and will need to be replaced, ok that's for the manual type...for the auto type, you may have a torque converter fault it might be leaking and you have lost the oil in the transmission, there is no dip stick to see if it is low, any automatic transmission fault really should be checked by a BMW garage or main dealer..hope this helps please comment and vote thanks

Clutch reservoir is dry on my daughters 96 Eagle Talon the car will not go into any gear.How do I flush the reservoir?If I add oil could this solve the problem

Do not put oil in this system.It uses brake fluid in the reservoir.If the system doesn't have any fluid in it, there is a leak, and both the clutch master cyl and the clutch slave should be replaced. They both were used the same amount of times, and wear evenly. When you add fluid, the clutch master cyl compresses the fluid down the line/hose into the clutch slave cyl. This depresses the clutch fork/arm and disengages the clutch disc so the input shaft into the transmission stops moving, allowing the trans to be put into gear. LOOK FOR THE FLUID LEAKING TO ISOLATE THE PROBLEM. This is a closed system, and the fluid never gets used, unless there is a leak.

My 1994 ford rangers clutch pedal just lost all pedal

There are two types of clutch actuators. (Mechanical & Hydtraulic)
A. For mechanical type,- Check the clutch cable as
this could be cut from wear and tear. This is easy
to replace. You can find this connected to the
pedal and the clutch lever near the transmission.
B.For hydraulic operated - Check the level of the
hydraulic oil at the cylinder of the hydraulic
actuator under the hood. This actuator is
directly connected to the pushrod driven by the
pedal. If the actuator is leaking, you have buy
a repair kit (Hyraulic clutch repair kit for Ford
Ranger 1994 MOdel.) These items must be
repaired to activate your pedal.

Bad master cyl. or bad slave cyl.

Is there any oil coming out of the slave cylinder ? Try cracking the bleed screw and gravity bleed the slave. Check the reservoir to ensure that you maintain adiquit oil in it, may push your air lock out, if that is what it is, chances are that it is your slave cylinder giving you all the problems.
