Sounds like a worn-out clutch plate or broken/damaged throw-out bearing or pressure plate. You need to replace the clutch - including the pressure plate, throw-out bearing, pilot bearing, and I also recommend a new slave cylinder. (Especially since you have allready replaced the master cylinder.) You may want to weigh the pros and cons of having your flywheel machined or just replacing it with a "Remanufactured " flywheel.

My 1999 Nissan sentra is stuck in second gear won't shift to any other gears ..any ideas please help


You have not indicated whether your car is a stick shift or an automatic transmission.
If it is a stick-shift, look for a problem with the master cylinder or the slave cylinder on the clutch.
The clutch is actuated by hydraulics, and loss of brake fluid from the system will cause the car to stop shifting.
The master cylinder for the clutch is smaller than the brake master cylinder, and is mounted under the hood (in front of your knees while you are driving).
The slave cylinder is mounted on the transmission near the clutch assembly.
More often than not, the slave cylinder fails before the master cylinder.

If your transmission is an automatic, and the fluid is correct on the transmission dipstick, you may need a transmission overhaul, which can be very expensive.
God bless your efforts.

Kia Rio 2005 manual, the gear will get stuck and car shakes and stalls on its own when I come to a stop, foot on clutch and brake, in reverse and first gear.


what would happen if you put it in first gear,put your foot on the clutch then try to start the car....of course pick a place where safe!!!...if it rolls forward while cranking ,the clutch plate is touching the flywheel (in other words the clutch all the way down while in gear while cranking,should NOT touch the flywheel(transmission part that makes the car move) so if it moves then it shows the transmission reacts to the clutch touching the other jiggamathig. Possibly clutch system needs bleeding (air in the hydraulic system). I'm sure your car has this thing called a "clutch slave cylinder". Now,this is one thing I would check first.

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.

Well, there is only one thing I can think of in your situation. Your pressure plates just simply are not creating enough pressure to allow the gears to engage. Either you have a defective clutch and it needs to be replaced, or possibly just needs a ton of adjustment. When you put it in 1st gear while engine is off, then start it and take off that works b/c there is enough pressure to keep the gears from starting to move when not already moving. However when they are already moving, there is just not enough pressure to stop them from turning, not even long enough to shift. Have you tried forcing it into 2,3, or 4 while driving without the clutch? As long as you achieve the correct RPM's your transmission should be able to do so.

Jetta 2003 6 speed manual transmission problems


There is small chance you problem is with the slave cylinder, or the clutch master cylinder.
Check the brake fluid under the hood in the clutch master cylinder. If it is gone, or low, you may be leaking brake fluid either from the slave cylinder on the transmission, or the fluid could be bypassing the rubber seals inside the master cylinder.
I hope this is what is wrong, as it is much less expensive than having the transmission repaired.
God bless your efforts.

2000 honda accord clutch problems


There is air in the system. The slave cylinder does provide pressure to return the pedal. Check to be sure that you have plenty of fluid in the master cylinder (clutch). Slowly work the pedal back and forth to try and remove air. (This usually works unless you have really lost all fluid. Once the air is remove depress the clutch while in gear. If it does not keep the car from moving then replace the slave and master cylinder. The parts are a little over $100. Hope this helps. I have one in the shop right now as a matter of fact...
