Question about 1989 Mazda 626
Gear shift fine when engine is running but car will not move when the clutch is released and i do hear a growl but no movement in any gear.thanks for you help
Either the clutch has failed, or something inside the transmission has broken.
Can you shift gears with the engine running and not depressing the clutch ? Can you put the transmission in first gear and move the car by hand ?

SOURCE: stuck clutch pedal
you have a leak in the clutch hydraulic system. without the spring tension from the clutches pressure plate the the pedal wont return. it is likely that the leak is at the slave cylinder, which is inside the bell housing. to replace it the transmission must be removed.

there is a recall for this-go to the dealer-it is a clutch bearing machining defect or something like that-they will fix it if your car was affected as indicated by your VIN number. they have to verify the problem first then they will do it for free.....should take about 3hrs

With any vehicle that has a hydraulic clutch, a worn master cylinder or slave cylinder will give this very symptom. First step is to check the fluid in the resivor. If it is low, you will want to check for fluid bypassing the seals. Be sure to check under the rubber dust cover as fluid can collect there and not be readily visible. Also, if the fluid in the resivor is dark colored, it is an indication of the internal seals going bad and you will need to replace the cylinders.

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.

Testimonial: "Thank you. Yes Vauxhall Astra '52'-reg has Hydraulic clutch I believe. I cannot see a fluid cylinder to fill with brake fluide but will look in manual"
