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.

VERY Bizarre Combination of "Symptoms" I Believe Relating to Clutch or Transmission, or heaven forbid worse! Please help!


Hi,

First, congrats on the most detailed problem description I have ever seen! Seriously, it does assist us.

All this is completely consistent with your clutch not releasing properly, meaning that the gearbox is still turning when the pedal is depressed. The syncros in the gearbox will then keep you out of gear, that is what they should do. You can indeed shift into higher gears however when driving as the gearbox revs more nearly match to what is needed. The jerking forward when you hit the starter is due to the poor old starter motor having to move the whole car instead of just the engine, because the clutch has not released !

Now as to why, it is likely that the clutch release fork has broken, inside the housing. I had this once with a Mazda, and symptoms were exactly as you describe. The gearbox has to be removed if this is the problem, and you should also then take the chance to renew the clutch, pressure and driven plate both, unless quite new.

Also a possible cause is a complete loss of clutch fluid if a hydraulic clutch, or a broken cable if that type of clutch. Loss of fluid in a hydraulic clutch can be easily checked in the fluid reservoir, and can occur if a hose splits

Suzuki won"t shift into gear unless I turn the car off and put it into first


make your adjustment to clutch, see how that works, but start saving up for a new clutch, or just have your inspection mechanic, take a look @ it for you, make the adjustment, and he can remove a cover and inspect the condition of your clutch with his own eyes. its a lot easyier for him than you. then, you'll know for sure. good luck

I have a 93 Toyota pick up 4x4 standard transmission. Sometimes when I go to reverse, there is a grinding noise, which won't let me shift into reverse. I then need to turn off the vehicle, then engage....


Could be the clutch.
Reverse and first do not have gears that line up like the others do. So if the clutch is not disengaging all the way, they will grind.

I can't get my Aztek Gear Shift button to press in. It is stuck in park. I have tried turning the key and it will turn but the button won't budge.


most likely it is ur brake pedal switch, it just behind the brake pedal arm, this switch must be triped by pushing the brake in order to shift into gear, if switch goes bad u cant shift. best of luck

My shift knob won't move


WITH INFO YOU ARE PROVIDING CLUTCH MIGHT NOT BE COMPLETELY DISENGUAGING CAUSING A STIFF OR DIFFICULT SHIFT. CHECK BY PUTTING VEHICLE ON FLAT GROUND ENGINE OFF. GET INTO 1ST GEAR. THEN PUSH IN CLUTCH AND START CAR WITH BRAKE OFF IF CAR STARTS ROLLING THEN CLUTCVH IS STILL TRYING TO GRAB. THEN ADJUST THE CLUTCH PER VEHICLE SPECS.

Acura rsx won't shift when it's on, only when off it shifts


This may be a clutch problem or a cluthch slave, what is happening is the transmission is not completely stopped spinning, so as you try to go into gear the clutch is not disengaged completely. this can be due to a bad slave or master.

The fluid for the clutch master, make sure its full. if low then you may have a leak. if low fill and pump pedal a few times to see if that helps.

If clutch master is low or full go to trany and locate the cltuch release fork on the transmission at the end you will see clutch slave, make sure there are no leaks. have someone push clutch pedal as you watch the fork move. make sure it move the distance. if its leaking then its bad.


The last thing would be the clutch pressure plate or disc, this is hard to see without removing transmission, If something broke away from cluch plate and is jammed against plate this will keep traany spinnig, but it would also be hard to get into first.

If you can start car in neutral and put into 1st gear without a problem then thats confusing, but if it is hard to go into first also then its in the clutch system. i am guessing you are in first with clutch down when starting and then its hard to get into other gears. good day.

95 eagle vision esi slips out of gear at stops


there is a limp mode but I doubt if that is the problem
It indicates that the torque converter clutch servo/solenoid is faulty
run the fault codes to confirm if that is it or a faulty TCM
check wiring around the transmission

91 mazda navajo with 5 speed manual transmission get's really hard to shift gears after driving 20 minutes or so, also will not go into any gears (like it's locked up) sometimes when I park and I will


Hi Donna:
If you try filling your clutch resavoir with brake fluid, its probably low level? If this is OK, then sound like clutch plate or clutch adjustment seems to be the most likely thing in that it is not disengaging fully. Check the adjustment.

Other problem could be worn gear linkages and joint bushes, I suggest check check play along gear change train from gear lever to gearbox selector input.

Finally, you might have an internal problem with the clutch or the transmission itself, although most manual transmissions are hydraulic, meaning they require fluid to operate. The clutch master cylinder is usually next to the brake master cylinder.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.

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.
