2003 toyota clutch malfunction

My brother in laws clutch won't work. He can start the car fine but it will not move at all. He has it sitting in netural and he still can't push the car. He tried putting it into gear but it will not go anywhere. What could have been the cause of this problem? The clutch is a high performance clutch and has been 2 years since it was replaced. There weren't any signs of it wearing out such as the slitch slipping or not catching gears. IT just didn't work when the car was turned on.

1994 wrangler will not shift into gear when stopped but works just fine when moving.

No. The jeep moves when starting the engine as if the clutch isn't fully engaged, but only then. Sitting idle with the clutch depressed it is fine.

Sister in law driving at 65 mph on turnpike, tried to down shift. Car would not down shift. Towed to my house. Clutch fluid reservoir empty. Filled reservoir with brake fluid, started engine. Forks on...

Did you bleed the air out of the system, also if empty there a leak some where. bleed system and check for leak's, look around for wetness could be a bad slave cylinder, clutch master or the line from clutch master to slave cylinder.

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.
