    how does clutch pedal operation feel? ok or is it travelling further down b4 any pressure felt? assume you have bled system of all air ? if all above is ok ? then please forgive for asking ? are you sure the clutch plate was fitted the right way round ?ie plates normally have marked on FLYWHEEL SIDE ? i ask this because if the correct parts were supplied? and correspond to old units then i would recheck with supplier as to whether there is a difference in pressure plates between a diesel engined and petrol engined? here in uk there is a difference in the actual movement the p/plate makes when pedal pressed to release ? enough to allow disc to be released from flywheel and allow gear selection ford escorts in uk have depends whether diesel/petrol engines hope this helps for info if plate is wrong way round? then the boss is in contact with flywheel all time giving drive to g/box check old plate to see difference of splined boss on each side?

have you check the slave cylinder to see if its moving when someone puts there foot on the clutch.
And check the adjustment on the master cylinder.

no it doesn't come filled basically you bleed it like a brake system. Fill the master cylinder and pump the clutch, there is a bleeder on the slave cylinder

That just recently happened to me. If your stick wont move into any of the gears, then you need a clutch. But if you can shift into the gears but dont go anywhere, then you need a new transmission.

SOURCE: fitted new clutch and slave cylinder in 2.5 v6

crawl up under the dashboard & look where the clutch pedal rod goes through the firewall. look for traces of brake fluid at the rubber boot of the rod. a clutch master cylinder normally will leak to the inside of the vehicle & down the firewall when it fails. Replace as required & bleed clutch system using the bleeder valve that should be on the slave asy.

I just finished putting on a new gear box and clutch kit for and when i started it and put it on gear it was so low and soft and a loud noise after that... I just want to know why did it do that pls?


So you installed a new transmission and a whole new clutch kit? Did the kit include the pressure plate, clutch, throw out bearing and slave cylinder? Did you bleed the slave cylinder? The low and soft pedal is a clear sign that there is air in the hydraulic system. The loud noise after that tells me you're either grinding the gear trying to shift or there is a problem inside the transmission itself. If you installed everything correctly and torqued all the bolts correctly in the clutch assembly and transmission, then try bleeding the slave cylinder again, sometimes air gets trapped in the cylinder and it's hard to get out, If you let the clutch master cylinder run dry while you either had the clutch apart or while you were bleeding the clutch, then you have to start from scratch and re-bleed the whole system.

I install new flywheel and clutch kit on my car. I can shift a gear when the car is off. If I start a car I can not shift a gear. What is wrong?


The clutch is not releasing properly for some reason.
A number of things can cause this. If, for example, the master cylinder is not bled properly, there will be air in the fluid and as a result, the slave cylinder will not have enough travel.
Another possibility is a bad pilot bearing, which is situated in the end of the crankshaft. It is also not impossible in some cases to install the clutch plate backwards, which will definitely cause problems.

I had a new clutch asembly and new slave cly put in my 1990 nissan truck about year and half ago. My problem is my clutch is hard to push down and if i don't push it all the way to floor it will g


replace the clutch master cylinder. The rubbers on the piston swell over time and/ or break down blocking up the ports in the cylinder.. Wrong fluid is the main culprit for this type of fault.

I have a 1995 Chevy S10 4.6L 2WD Ext Cab truck. Just replaced the transmission and have bled the system. I started the engine and I cannot shift into first gear without grinding the gears. Any suggestions...


If you can see the slave cylinder actuate, then have someone push the clutch down and watch for movement. You should see the release lever move at least a half inch. Let me know if you get movement. I also would like to know if you had the flywheel machined and if you removed, replaced, or added any shims between the ****** and engine block.

Clutch problem


Have someone press down on the clutch pedal while you look at the release lever. There should be movement on the lever of about a 1/2 inch. If not the problem is on the hydraulic side. If there is sufficient movement the problem is on the mechanical side (Incorrect fitment/ cracked release lever in the bellhousing/incorrect parts ie pressure plate) Pay attention to where the slave cylinder pin contacts the release lever. Severe wear can occur at this point as it is hardly ever lubricated by service centres/backyard mechanis and you could have a situation where the pin goes straight throught the contact point due to wear.
Bear in mind, (something that has puzzled me completely), a master cylinder that has been inoperative for a while, especially on older cars, needs to have its' seals replaced before working properly again. Go figure!

I have a 89 toyota pickup 4 speed. When I'm stopped at a stop light, and let out on the clutch it seems like it has lost pressure. When I'm shifting down the road it shifts fine. I checked the fluid and it...


this sounds like the clutch slave is goin out, this unit is on the outside of the transmission. Possibly losing pressure!! Your transmission does not use transmission fluid, but instead gear oil. Have the following checked:
1. Clutch Slave (possibly worn)-this will cause soft or hard clutch pedal feel, slipping clutch, unintended clutch release, hard gear engagement, no/insufficient clutch movement.

*2. Clutch pedal Mounting Plate (possibly cracked)-this will cause improper gear engagement, hard gear engagement, soft pedal feel, insufficient clutch movement.

*this plate is located above the clutch pedal itself, apply pressure on the pedal with one hand while inspecting the plate for fatigue cracks(use a bright flashlight). This is very common on these models. This problem will eventually get worst and most mechanics never figure this out.

Clutch problem


I guess the clutch system must be a hydraulic one, check the clutch master cylinder and slave cylinder if they are functioning.
If they are thn theres a problem with the clutch pressure plate, if thts so , you will have to drop the gear box to replace it and its adviseable to replac e the pro-kit...consisting of Clutch pressure plate, clutch plate and release bearing.
