SOURCE: MY CLUTCH WONT DISENGAGE, BUT THE CLUTCH ACTUATES

You need to adjust it so that it just disengages. The book is a good guide but every bike is a little bit different. If it dosen't completely disengage you will trash your trans quick.

Wont shift right


we cant guess the tranmission. sold with car new.
ever.
I can't to me , is that its stick shift car. is it?
the problem is a bad clutch actuator (pedal to clutch main)
or bad clutch.(drags) yours is dragging , only why remains.
inspect the clutch cable yet>? and adjust free play per the book.?

the car is really an Isuzu Impulse minus some of that car's more expensive features.
Geo dead
Isuzu dead, double dead car..
the online books (alldata.com) show a clutch cable
buy a new one , i bet this one is EOL. end of life.
remove it install it and set the free play right.

Transmission not shifting completely


Sounds like you don't have enough clutch clearance. The clutch is dragging the gears. Not sure on your bike as you don't mention what you have, but in some bikes I had there was a manual clearance adjustment on the centre of the clutch. Once that is set, the play of the cable was adjusted. Of course hydraulic actuation might differ.

Clutch might be good, but it could be out of adjustment.

One test is with engine off, pull in clutch and cycle kickstarter a few times.

There should be drag for the first 2-3 kicks, then it should free up (the clutch plates tend to "weld up" [just a term] from heat wile running).

If not remove primary cover.

Pull in clutch lever, cycle kickstarter, and watch that pressure plate isn't "wobbling" as it turns.
If it does, you'll have to tighten 1 or 2 of the 3 clutch spring nuts to get it to turn true.

Then adjust the clutch pushrod free play.
In the center of clutch pressure plate, loosen lock nut and back off adjuster screw.
Tighten screw until it you fell it just "touch" the push rod behind it.
Back off the screw 1/4 to 1/2, hold it from turning, and lock down the lock nut.
Adjust the clutch cable so there's about 1/16" to 1/8" slack at the lever end.

Low gears wont slide into gear when in traffic jams or hot.


Sounds like you do need a clutch adjustment.Do you have a hydraulic clutch?Check beside the brake master cylinder and look for a SMALLER size master cylinder which may be low on fluid.(PUT ONLY BRAKE FLUID IN TO FILL IT).Hopefully it is just low and the brake fluid fill will restore your clutch adjustment.
