    Same problem! When the car was 1 yr. old, it happened. Nissan told us that it's not covered under warranty and that we'd have to foot the $1,000 bill. 2 years later, I am still driving the car, haven't lost the clutch, but lose hydrolics in the slave or master cylinder occasionally. It's an apparent problem with the mechanism...and they want US to pay for it, even though I have a 100,000 mi. warranty...they say it's not covered. I paid that much for a car...and the warranty...it should be covered!

Manual forester - gears don't engage when I move the stick. Car starts fine, has been running fine, used it this morning but then went to go out and the gears won't engage. Can move freely between gears...


If you have a cable operated clutch then the inner cable is jamming bin the case and not allowing the clutch to engage. If hydraulic then the compensator port in the clutch master cylinder is blocked holding off the pressure plate and so the clutch is not engaging.

Clutch pedal travel


Your pedal height may be adjustable by a stopper bolt at top of pedal. You would have to check the specification for your car. Most important that the pedal has about a half inch free travel before clutch begins to engage. You need that free play to ensure the release bearing (the throw-out bearing) is not touching the fingers on the pressure plate when not engaged. If it always is touching, it will be rolling around constantly and will go out prematurely.
Your new clutch will allow gear engagement sooner as the clutch pedal is released. I mean gears will engage just as pedal is lifting off from floor. You should notice that difference-the old clutch would have taken longer pedal travel from floor before releasing.

No you can't adjust this problem. You have a problem with your hydraulic portion of your clutch or your pressure plate so you need to get it fixed.

Clutch pedal sticks to the floor; the brake reservoir was low


I believe your pressure plate is broken and at a minimum will have to be replaced along with the clutch disk.

I have a 1998 accord 4cyl coupe manual trans. The


A clutch issue youtend to have more of an engagement problem with 1st and reverse gear for a small time period before you notice other gears.You want to check the clutch hydrolic system for any leaks(clutch slave at transmission,clutch master,which you look for leakage on interior above clutch pedal)and at fluid resevoir.you also want to double check condition of trans fluid. strongly recommend using only HONDA BRAND MANUAL TRANS. FLUID when doing maintinance,fluid should be replaced every 30k on this car.The Honda brand fluid is like night and day on these cars,it WILL make a difference in shifting!!TRust Me on this point! Sorry now back to your main clutch issue,when driveing and you go to shift gears and normally notice grinding,with clutch pedal in shft out of gear and before engageing it into next gear do a double pump of clutch pedal then see if when continuing to next gear if it engagees smoother.if so you know you have without a dout a clutch pressure plate/disc problem. I can tell you that in twenty years the only manual transmissions themselves that ever had problems were due to outside influences(gear oil in transmission,improper driveing,etc.)let me know what you find and we can go from there..JOEL

95 nissan maxima clutch pedal was stuck on the floor changed the slave cylinder still same problem also when i push the clutch down it makes a high pitched noise and idle drops a bit


Hi, this is a result of a bad throw out bearing pack and, this may have damaged the pressure plate as well.

I recommend taking this vehicle in , if possible, for a thorough repair on these two parts. they are vital to optimal clutch performance.

Please rate and have a great day:)

2006 nissan maxima clutch problems


I have the same problem with my '06. It must be a design problem of some sort for so many people to have the same issue. I think we should all call the dealerships' service departments so they can address it with Nissan tech reps. Then if Nissan doesn't come up with a 'fix' we advertise the problem somehow so Nissan loses customers or customer confidence.
