Question about 1991 Suzuki Sidekick

1 Answer

I have to really push the clutch down to the floor to get it into first gear. Sometimes, I cant get it in gear and I have to start from 2nd gear. Every once in awhile, I have done that from 3rd gear. Does the Sidekick need a new clutch or what. Thanks

It could need a clutch. Try pulling up on the clutch petals to see if it will self adjust.

2001 406 diesel estate manual. 11600 miles. clutch replaced 2 years ago. normal everydare use it is all ok. recently was in heavy traffic for over 2 hrs. never out of 1st & =2nd gear. Engine temp just...


If the clutch is correctly adjusted, it will start to engage when releasing the clutch pedal at 1 in. off of the floor. When in Heavy traffic shift trans to neutral while at a stop, take your foot off of the clutch pedal to avoid overheating the release bearing

Car will not engauge into 1st or 2nd gear


the gear grinding noise is because the clutch plate is not fully disengaging and the input shaft is still driving. If you did not use the same length of push rod then the slave cylinder is not moving enough to disengage the clutch. Check it out that with the pedal on the floor the piston in the slave cylinder should be almost to the edge of the slave cylinder . That is where It should be to be working properly

does the clutch push normally or is the linkage broken not disengaging clutch, and then does shifter move around or locked and wont move, loose linkage in shifter or gears are jammed inside transmission and something went, if shifter wont move at all then trans is jammed inside and needs repair.

I just got a new used 1995 honda accord and already i'm really unhappy. The gears stick terribly and the breaks... you have to push down really hard and they don't break fast. What can i do about the gears...


the gears are sticking? is the shifter just really tight and hard to move from one gear to the next, or even just wiggle around in neutral? if so, you may need new bushings for it. which are not very expensive. IF the shifter wiggles around easily in neutral, but hangs in a gear when you press the clutch in all the way, you could need a clutch, OR hopefully you can just try bleeding the clutch line. at the master cylinder on the transmission. the breaks.... do you have to push the pedal down really hard, or really soft and far? if you're putting a lot of pressure on the pedal but you don't have to push the brake pedal all the way to the floor, that would indicate to me that your pads and rotors are glazed over. you should replace the rotors, pads and have the calipers checked, and have the brakes bled. if you've got to push the pedal all the way to the floor, there's a good chance all you'll need is to have the brakes bled.

Installed new battery, still won't start...won't even turn over. Tested the curcuits and there is current?????


hi, if when you turn the key the engine dont even turn over then this is a good indication that the starter motor needs replacing.
If the car has manual gear box you could try putting it in 2nd gear then get some one to help push the car so that the engine turns this way slightly then try starting this sometimes gets it started also you could try hitting the starter motor with a hammer this may also get it started.
First check all fuses and replace any that are blown then try again if still no joy then check the wires going to the starter motor are secure if they are then its a good chance it needs replacing.

If you have a manual box then you could put the car in 2nd gear with the igniton switched on then get someone to give you a good push or tow you down the road, keep the clutch pushed to the floor untill you have got moving quite quick then release the clutch this should then turn the engine over and fire the engine up then the car will be running, this in its self may free up the starter motor allowing it to start but be warned it will happen again so get it replaced sooner rather that later.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok.

If you have an auto box then make sure the shifter is in right place move it all the way up and down a few times then give it another try as sometimes if its slightly out of line it wont engage the starter motor.

Grinding gears from 1st to 2nd, 3rd to 5 ok


Either your clutch is getting bad, or you're shifting down too soon, and up too late. Try double clutching. Push in your clutch and push it into neutral. Release the clutch, fan the gas pedal, push the clutch again and shift into 1st. All this does is sychronize the speed of the transmission with the speed of the engine. There were, in the 60's, a lot of cars with the old "three on the tree" that you had to do this every time, and you get pretty good at it after a while.
