Check the clutch master cylinder and the clutch slave cylinder for proper operation... chances are the slave is bad.. I think this is located on the passenger side of the tranny.. you may have lost fluid during the install.. or introduced air into the system.

If you needed a new clutch.. it was probably time to at least flush that system and or replace the slave cylinder.. also check the spring on the clutch pedal..

I hope you replaced the throw out bearing and pressure plate when replacing the clutch.. I suspect you did.

Best of luck

1995 Toyota Tacoma 3.4L 5-speed manual feels like 4x4 is not fully engaging.


check that the clutch is fully engaging by checking if there is free play at the throw out lever and clutch push rod . If you cannot push the rod back into the cylinder then the slipping is because the clutch is only partially engaged. Replace the clutch master cylinder if that is the case. If it is right then the fault will be in the pressure plat/ cutch plate and it may require a clutch kit.

My clutch won't engage 1997 Honda civic


Clutch plate and pressure plate seem to be too weak to pull the car. To test the clutch plate, park the car on flat surface. Pull the hand brake up, start the car, depress the foot brake pedal, depress the clutch pedal, put the car in 1st gear, press the gas pedal and leave the clutch pedal at once, while keeping the brake pedal depressed.
Follow one of the two following statements:
1. Engine does not shut down and remain start. (Clutch plate, pressure plate and clutch bearing defective - Replace all as a set)
2. Engine shuts down. (Clutch system is OK and does not require any repair).

I am having a gear shifting problem with my Kia Sportage (4x4 Gasoline engine, 2009 version). taking off from an incline drive it is difficult to shift from first to second gear (grinding noise). Also...


Check your clutch fluid box located by your breaks master cylinder. Your clutch works like your breaks in that when you press the clutch pedal it uses hydraulics to disengage your clutch plate. If it's low or not working properly your clutch plate won't fully disengage and could lead to more problems.

Clutch is about 2yrs old.Have to pump clutch mostly in order to shift.It sometimes won't shift.But if I turn the truck off completely,it will shift into all gears.


Could be a bypassing clutch master or a leak in master, line or slave. Pumping pedal gets pressure up (just like your brakes) You can shift with engine off because nothing is spinning.

I cannot engage the 1st and 2nd gear while i can hardly engage the 3rd, 4th & 5th gear. However I can easily engage the reverse gear and the fluid reservoir is empty.


Ok I see a manual transmission with a hydraulic clutch.
Get some fluid in that reservoir before you burn up the synchronizers.
Basically your clutch isnt disengaging because you are out of fluid. Next you need to find where the fluid is going. Likely the clutch slave cylinder is leaking and needs replaced. Pretty easy actually if you are handy with a wrench.

did it work before? if so it may be that the clutch was not bled properly. if you can have someone gently push on the truck and let it go creating a rocking motion while you try to put it in neutral. if it goes into neutral the clutch was not bled correctly

Starter issues


sounds like you have a bendix and ring gear problem, sounds like you have a starter bendix engagement and disengagement problem, drop starter and inspect the flywheel ring gear and starter drive gear (Bendix) .

Look for worn teeth on the flywheel it only will happen in one or two spots 180 degrees apart cause the motor always will stop in one two places... seen it a 1000 times...
