Could be the master or slave cylinder, did you check for fluid in the master?

My 92 s10 shifts hard into first gear when the motor is running

Hello Linda Hamman,

Would that we had a real opportunity to dialog... my first question would be to ask... how MUCH clutch peddle free-play you feel
before your engine attempts to move your car (loads up)...

My best guess... "NOT MUCH"

(satisfactory would be from the top third to half of the clutch peddle travel... (
on the low end)).

There are only two possibilities... That would cause that particular symptom... both rely on the fact your :input shaft is still under (some) engine power (even with the CLUTCH operated (in): As you know your clutch DISC is usually pressed between the ENGINE FLY-WHEEL and the clutch PRESSURE PLATE...
With the clutch fully operated the TRANSMISSION INUT SHAFT
is fully free of the ENGINE FLY-WHEEL and the clutch PRESSURE PLATE.

In normal operation this is the least (smallest) amount of MASS
that has to be synchronized from gear transition to NEXT gear transition.... That is to say... FIRST shift should be the EASIEST
shift... as a matter of pure mass & motion...

Al the other GEARS involve the engine under high RPM & the full mass of a moving vehicle... (as Einstein would say.. E = Mvv

(velocity squared)

The first... biggest & most likely...
possibility is that one (likely BOTH) of the HYDRAULIC cylinders
that are your CLUTCH linkage are either low, leaking or both.

Check for leaks... FIND... FIX... FILLL.

When your clutch works right ... so goes the shifting...!!

Second ... "could" be a bad pilot bearing... but that is so REMOTE that it would only resonate with a STRANGE PERSON.. Such as I.

Hope this was informative....

I'm here daily (for dialog)... comment me back if you wish.

My 1998 accent gl makes a pressure like noise when i press the clutch down

This could be a dry pedal shaft bush ( bit of WD-40 spray) or the first signs that the master cylinder rubbers are dry and the cylinder is facing replacement.

Clutch not engaging

Well, it would shift easily with engine off, because the transmission input shaft is not turning. Engine running and clutch engaging good, the input shaft would again be stationary and allow smooth shifting.
What you have to determine is if the clutch disc or pressure plate is bad (a new clutch is needed), or if the pedal hydraulic system has a malfunction. When you push the pedal down, a rod from the top of pedal pushes into the clutch master cylinder bolted to the firewall under the hood. This cylinder has a reservoir filled with brake fluid. When the rod forces fluid from the clutch master down a steel line and into the clutch slave cylinder down on the transmission bell housing, the hydraulic pressure forces a plunger from the slave cylinder to extend and push the clutch fork lever a small amount, enough to force the clutch release bearing (aka throw-out bearing) against the pressure plate. This relieves pressure on the clutch disc and input shaft becomes stationary for easy shifting.

My son has a 77 ford f150 will not go into gear

It sounds like the pressure plate is not disengaging the clutch completly, if at all. If it makes a grinding
noise when you step on the clutch,( without moving
the shifter from neutral) you most likly have bad
throwout bearing or pressure plate or both. If no
noise try adjusting the clutch. Under the truck, on the
left side there is a 3/8" rod from the clutch pivot assy.
to the clutch fork. Remove the return spring and turn
the rod toword the fork until the bearing touchs the
the plate replace the spring and back the rod off
1 +1/2 turns. While your under ther remove the inspection plate and check for shrapnal, also have
somone step on the clutch and see if everything is
moving.(eng. is off while doing all this. had to say it)
Start the truck and give it a try, if no improvment
you need a clutch job.
One more thing, with the truck on level surface and
the engine off, block the wheel and shift through the
gears, if it shifts easily ok. This was to eliminata
bent or broken shift forks in the transmission cover.
Hope this helps. Good luck.

2004 pontiac manual transmission

your clutch itself is fine. what happened is you need to replace the master cylinder or the slave cylinder. your just not building up any hydraulic pressure to disengage the clutch.
