How do you know if the clutch is out or the transmission


if there is a clutch problem, the symptoms are engine rpms go up on acceleration but the car only goes slow
car shakes when riding the clutch
car jerks when slowly letting the clutch out
however if the clutch system hydraulic or cable is faulty it will slip , jerk etc when you take off
My first point to check would be the cable if cable operated clutch , clutch master cylinder and / or slave cylinder if hydraulic
clutch system either cable or hydraulic will cause the clutch to slip or not disengage the clutch properly
( grating in first and reverse )
Transmission either work properly or are very noisy , jump out of gear so at this stage I would suggest that you concentrate on the clutch operation
unfortunately you didn't bother to include any details in your question like make ,model year , cable or hydraulic so the answer can only be general or what the indications of a problem are

Wont go in gear when on it only goes in gear when car off


It's a manual transmission, then? If it is, your clutch is not working. You need to check at the transmission's bell housing to see if the clutch pedal being depressed causes the clutch fork to move-either forward or backward, it should move about an inch with the pedal pushed to the floor.. The clutch pedal will either be cable operated, or it will be a hydraulic clutch with a clutch master cylinder on the firewall, and a steel tube going down to the bell housing, where a small "slave cylinder" operates the clutch fork.

If you see the clutch fork move a fair amount, at least an inch, then you probably need a new clutch disc and pressure plate. A clutch job means removing the transmission to replace the clutch.

If the clutch fork does not move, either the cable has too much slack-for cable operated clutches, or the hydraulic unit has a problem-for hydraulic operated clutches. One of your hydraulic cylinders may be bad, either the clutch master cylinder or the slave cylinder.

Does a nissan primera 1993 have a hydraulic clutch or cable either ither how do I adjust it? Also its crunching very bad in 1st & reverse & just starting to crunch in 3rd help please


Its fairly easy to determine if your clutch is hydraulic or cable. Check in the engine compartment against the firewall on the drivers side, and see if there are one or two hydraulic reservoirs side by side. If there are two, the far left one is for the clutch, and you have a hydraulic clutch.
If you have a cable clutch, the cable should be clearly seen by the side of the brake hydraulic reservoir, a rather thick cable running from the firewall to the bell housing area.
There are two possibilities for adjusting - the adjusting nuts are either at the point where the outer part of the cable enters the firewall to connect to the clutch pedal, or where the inner cable connects to the release bearing fork.
To adjust, release the outer nut (there should be two, one is a locknut) and take up the slack by screwing the other nut inward.
Make sure you don't overtighten the cable, this could lead to your clutch slipping and you will need to replace the clutch plate sooner.
A hydraulic clutch is usually not adjustable, so if you have a problem there, take it to a service station.
Have fun.

My mirage won't change gears and feels like there is no clutch


Could be a worn out clutch or a failure of hydraulic if clutch is hydraulic . Check hydraulic fluid levels if hydraulic clutch if low and leaking master cylinder for clutch needs to be checked. Check clutch cable at wirewall in engine bay if cable driven. I have seen a car that had a surclip holding the cable and if the surclip broke the clutch cable did not work as it moved as it was used.

How to know if clutch is bad?


First --if it goes to the floor and will not come back up the problem will be in the hydraulics or cable

next if you put your foot on the clutch and you cannot engage 1st gear then it is the hydraulic / cable system

next if you take your foot of the clutch when it is in gear and the clutch slips and the rpm\'s go up it may be the hydraulics / cable or the clutch itself

IF the clutch has been operating properly until lately I would be paying attention to the hydraulic / cable areas before I would consider a clutch replacement. IF you have no problems with the clutch but would want to test it

place the vehicle in gear with the hand brake hard on . let the clutch pedal out while reving the engine ( hill start) and if the engine dies out or tends to stall then the clutch is good This is a very short time one off test (1-2 secs) at most

My 2002 Volkswagen golf 2.0 shifter got really loose can't tell what gear im in. When I put it into first I can get it to role with allot of gas but still doesn't feel like it's in gear and...


The transmission in a Volkswagen vehicle shifts gears only when there is enough hydraulic pressure. This is made possible in part by the clutch cable, because it connects the clutch pedal to the clutch master cylinder. The clutch master cylinder in turn transforms the foot pressure that is carried through the clutch cable into hydraulic pressure. If the clutch cable breaks, the clutch master cylinder will be unable to generate enough hydraulic pressure for shifting gears.

Clutchbitting close to the floor


Is this a hydraulic or cable operated clutch?

If hydraulic, then replace the clutch disk.

If cable, then try adjusting the cable to take away some slack. If already adjusted, then replace clutch disk.

Clutch cable location


Hello siscabella, you may not have a clutch cable, most newer cars use a hydraulic clutch.
You should be able to call any parts store to confirm that your clutch is hydraulic.
Many prefer the old machanical clutch because you could adjust the cable to get more clutch, but, the hydraulic clutches are not designed so you can adjust it. If you have a weak clutch, you will most likely need a new clutch in the near future.
I hope that I've been helpful.
