Can you put it in gear with the engine off? You could have a broken clutch fork, failed master/slave cylinder, hydrolic leak, or a busted throw-out bearing. If the clutch fluid is full you know you don't have a leak. Some Fords use the brake fluid reservoir for the clutch master cylinder. If you can see your slave cylinder, have someone push the clutch while you look for movement. If it moves about one inch then you'll be taking the transmission out to replace the clutch and/or throw-out bearing.

Hi i drive a 03 ford transit when you press the clutch pedal it feels fine but you cant select gears only 5 gear when you try to get first gear its like the clutch is not being pressed


Your clutch disc may be worn out, when the disc wears completely down the pressure plate goes over center and that causes the clutch to slightly engage when the pedal is depressed and you grind gears, most clutches last about 75000 miles.

Clutch pedal goes down , but does not seem to release far enough to change gears, im thinking it has something to do with the line that goes from pedal to ******, that part on ****** does not seem tig


i dont see what car you have, but most clutches are hydraulic these days. under the hood on the firewall there should be a small fluid cylinder called a clutch slave cylinder. it should be full of brake fluid. when it leaks, the pedal feels strange and it will not release the clutch. usually when the fluid leaks it it due to a failed slave cylinder on the transmission.

1999 toyota rav4 wont go into first gear, i just repaced the clutch,clutch slave cylinder and clutch master clutch


Did you bleed the slave cylinder? Also, check pedal free play (about 1/2 inch) and pedal height (not sure on your Rav, you'll have to check with Toyota).
Only first gear, or difficulty going into all gears?

Hi there . . i have a clutch problem with my t25 '83 . . i can't select any gears with my clutch pedal down . . the pedal feels exactly the same . . when it is pressed down there is fluid...


You will have to find the source of the leak and repair it. There can be no leaks of any amount, or the clutch won't work. After you repair it, whether it be a line or the slave cylinder or whatever, you will have to bleed the line and get all the air out of it. if you need more info, get back to me.

It really sound like you are going to need a new clutch. If the slave or master cylinders were bad they would feel loose, a stiff pedal usually means something came apart in the pressure plate.

Problems going in and out of gear


check to see how far down the clutch pedal goes before you start to feel the clutch it shooed
be at least 1/2 way down if its not disengaging it will feel like you are forcing the shifter into
every gear the cause the clutch is still turning and by you pushing on the shifter it forces the
clutch to stop . i feel you ether need a new clutch. or you are in need of a clutch adjustment.

hope this helps you
good luck

After being stored clutch willnot engage


do you mean wont disengage? does the pedal feel normal, or like its pushing nothing?cant put it in gear? or goes in gear but wont move?. if you put it in gear but car wont move, the clutch is toasted. if you can put it in gear with the engine off, but not when its running, check the clutch master fluid. if its low or out, then the slave or master is leaking and you will need to replace both. if the clutch arm IS working, and the pedal feels normal, sometimes you can put in gear, and start it with the clutch pedal depressed and drive it, and goose the gas to "break the disc loose"
