Neither
you need to replace the clutch master and slave cylinders or the cable
there is air in the system from failing slave cylinder

hi considering age of car and that you have no leaks on hydraulics? may i suggest you try bleeding the clutch to rid of old fluid a couple of pumps may be suffice ? b/fluid does absorb moisture and heat over time hence recommendation tat fluid be changed at period specified in handbooks ie 12 monthly ?

SOURCE: How do I adjust the clutch? Clutch engages when

A high clutch pedal is good.
There should only be about a half inch of pedal freeplay, before you start to feel resistance.
So the clutch should not engage until it is almost fully released, near the top.
The makes shifting the easiest.

If the shifting is difficult when cold, then put the transmission in neutral and let the clutch out when you warm up the engine.
That will warm up the transmission oil.

Of course you could also check the transmission oil level and change it.
But your question makes me believe you may need more experience on a stick shift. Make sure you do the H pattern carefully, and do not get lazy and turn it into an X pattern.

SOURCE: shifter works when car is off, start car and then

The one item I would suspect is the through-out-bearing not completely disengaging the pressure plate from the fly wheel. If the vehicle is in neutral and you slowly depress the clutch and release it do hear a singing or whining sound? Since you cannot adjust the clutch any more the through-out-bearing is the component which moves the pressure plate from the fly wheel to stop the power from the engine to the transmission. It is difficult to shift when the engine is on because the fly wheel is still engaged and powering your transmission.

Changed shoes and hardware and can't get the drums on without forcing them on.


Your emergency brakes are engaged. Most likely the cables are rusted and won't release. Cut them near the rear brakes, adjust the shoes to fit the drum. replace them when you can.

Why does the oil engine light come on when i engage the clutch ?


Hi!

When a car is in gear with the Gas pedal pushed down, the engine RPM is high so the oil pressure is high too that means the Sending unit is detecting high pressure. But when you engage the clutch that means the gas pedal is released so the RPM drops and the pressure drops down too. So all i can say is that you might have a bad oil pump that needs always high RPM to keep the oil pressure normal.

Good luck

With a hydraulic clutch there is no adjustment as the slave cylinder does that automatically by using the fluid.

When I release the clutch pedal, the clutch bites/engages immediately. There is hardly any travel and the pedal feels slack. Will I need a new clutch?


No it just needs adjusting. Don't adjust it very tight adjust until the preasure comes on the pedal about half way up or where you are comfortable with it. Cheer's
