I have vibration in the clutch pedal when shifting while in motion. A clutch kit was put in: didn't solve problem. Clutch and trans work fine.

Was the flywheel surfaced or replaced? if surfaced , it may have not been surfaced flat. some are two step and have to be within tolerances. If you took this to a garage, take it back. They misdiagnosed it. Tell them to make it right. You already paid.

How can you tell if your netural start switch is bad on a standard trans on1993 trooper

Well a standard shift model would have a switch on the clutch not the trans. The engine would not crank if the clutch switch was faulty.
A standard shift trans would have a backup light switch.

2002 rpm goes up to 2,000 rpm when i start it and around 40 mph it feels like it slips and goes up to 3,000 and stays goes up to 4500 rpm at 70 mph burning alot of gas and my engine just started rocking...

Sounds like the clutch, if a standard trans, needs to the be replaced. If it's an automatic, you need to take it in for diagnosis. Your trans. might be going bad, slipping, may just be low on fluid, if it is use some Lucas trans nonslpi and the proper tranny fluid to fill it to the proper level. Add the fluids and test drive bfore going to the shop, unless the tranny is fuul allready.

How to Hyundai Elantra tow bar

Don't do it. If you tow a Hyundai on all 4 wheels, like behind an RV, the transmission will burn itself up! The manual trans requires splash lubrication for the bearing and gears, which it doesn't get because the transmission has to be in neutral. The automatic transmission burns up the one-way clutches.
