I assume you mean the starter will not engage. Check the safety switch on the clutch pedal(under the dash at firewall). This switch must make contact to engage the starter. If you have cruise control, this switch also disengages the cruise when you depress the clutch. Two of the wires need to be connected for starter to work, the other two need to be disconnected for the cruise to work. I hope this helps.

My 2010 Jeep Liberty only starts sometimes. It’s a standard and once I get it started, it runs very well. What could be causing this?

What could be causing this?????? Without knowledge of testing automotive electrical circuits ,viewing wiring diagrams an using a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter ,your may never know . Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop . Complex electronic's are involved in the starting of the vehicle . The clutch safety switch is just one input to the PCM - engine computer . Plus there is the Battery connections an cables . Voltage drop testing of these circuit's show unwanted resistance in the circuit. Plus it should also have a starter relay that the PCM energizes to engage the starter . Guess dosen't fix these type problems .A trained professional auto technician does.

I have a 2006 nissan altima. when i push the clutch in it idles high. no engine light has come on but it misses sometimes (not all the time).

If the clutch has been replaced check the engine grounds and tranny grounds. you might be getting a change in ground when the clutch is pressed.

97 jeep Cherokee clutch will not depress to start the engine

Now you need to bleed the clutch at the clutch slave cylinder down on the transmission to restore the clutch.
Put a wrench on the bleed valve and open it, then lightly close it. Now have someone pump the clutch a couple of times to build pressure. Then while the clutch pedal is slowly pressed down open the bleed valve, then close valve as pedal gets to floor. Repeat this bleed process until a steady stream of brake fluid comes out the bleed valve. Then you should have a good clutch again.

My 2002 1.8 mondeo holds back on power wen driven at town speed and engine cuts of wen driving but dip the clutch and engine will run again. any ideas

Have you checked the fuel filter? It may be time for a change. In a Manual transmission when it dies any time as long as your still rolling at a decent rate of speed you should be able to push the clutch in to start the engine back on.

1984 toyota pickup wont start

I would suspect the fuel pump inside the gas tank is defective. Next time it fails to short hook up a fuel pressure gauge to the engine test port in the fuel supply pipe to the fuel injectors. You can buy the tester for about $25.00 on line.
