This is not normal. Dirty oil can cause the clutch plates to grab. Try doing an oil change. Some oils and lubricants can cause the friction plates to swell which can also cause the plates to grab. Use 10w40 motor oil in the gear box. Don't use any synthetic oils, oil marked "EC", or oil with "special" additives. Stick with the major brands; Pennzoil, Quaker State, Mobil or Shell. If in hot areas like Texas or New Mexico go with 20w50.

Car has difficulty going in gear even if pedel is fully down


The clutch is not fully disengaging. Adjust the clutch cable to obtain a 1/2 inch of free play at the top of pedal stroke. If clutch adjustment is not correct, damage to synchronizers or clutch release bearing will occur. Your clutch should begin to engage about an inch off the floor when releasing the clutch pedal.

Clutch wont go into neutral when engine is on


Try adjusting the clutch. Sounds like it won't fully disengage when the clutch is pulled in. Adjust the cable first. Make sure there is about the thickness of a quarter between the clutch cable and the perch. If it doesn't work then try adjusting it the same down at the bottom. Make sure you fully collapse the clutch cable if doing the adjustment down below first. Then once the bottom is adjusted, re adjust the cable by the perch. If that doesn't cure your problem then you need to go into the clutch itself.

Wire clutch adjustment


Pulling the lever releases the clutch. Disengageing it so you don't go. Ok, in order to engage the clutch fully, you release the lever and you must have at leas 1/4 inch free play.
If it is not going in gear easily, you probably have too much free play and you are not fully disengageing.. There is the possibility of an internal adjust ment Try the above and let me know how or if that works. Clutch lever pulled by closing your fist releases the clutch for shifting.

Clutch not disengaging completely when handle pulled completely. Wants to tug me across parking lot. Hard to shift at slow speed. to find neutral shut it off.


either your clutch needs to be adjusted or your clutch has something in it preventing it from fully releasing. either way its best to take it to the shop or someone who knows how to properly inspect the primary case. in my case, a plate fell apart and the rivets were in between the clutches.

Crx cable clutch problem


The clutch assy. is worn out. When a clutch is new the springs on the pressure plate sit flat. When you push on the clutch the springs don't have to move far to disengage, making it easy to press on the clutch pedal. As the clutch wears the fingers of the clutch spring move out, clutch pedal effort and travel increases to the point that the clutch will not disengage anymore. Along the life of the clutch the cable can be adjusted to minimize this. You have reached the end of the adjustment, sorry for the bad news but the clutch needs to be replaced.
