Clutch issues I have a 2006 Saturn vue. I went to get gas today and the clutch was all the way up. When I went to get into the car to leave the gas station I had trouble putting it in first gear. I made it home and parked it. When I went to run another errand the car would start but when I pushed down on the clutch to put into first, the car would make a grinding sound and would not move out of first or let me change into any gears.


This is a hydraulic clutch, meaning you push fluid to make the clutch move just like the brakes.I would check the clutch master cylinder first to see if it is full of fluid.The master or slave cylinder could have failed, among other things. ... 2006 Saturn Vue

I have a 2000 mercury cougar. 4cyl. 157000 miles manual transmission. i bought it with the knowledge that the clutch was out. a friend told me that if i started the car in 1st or 2nd gear it should jump when i let the clutch out and that i could drive it far enough to get it home ok without having the clutch. when i tried to do this the car did not even move and it did not work in reverse or any gear. the gears shift fine and the clutch feels perfect, the car just does not move. there is no grin

I recently got a 2001 Sebring coupe and over the past week or so the clutch pedal has slowly started to feel loose. Sometimes it would grind a bit trying to go only into 2nd gear. Didn't happen that often but I got in the car today and the pedal pushed easily to the ground and wouldnt go into gear with the car on. Shifter moves between gears fine when the cars off. Clutch was replaced at 40,000 miles already and the car has 130,000 on it now. Does this sound like the clutch is out or maybe just


Sounds like the cable is bad or stretched- best to have it ALL checked by a professional imo. ... 2001 Chrysler Sebring

Was driving my 1985 chevrolet sprint, got to stopsign, pushed in clutch to put in 1st geer and nothing just rolled into street. Checked clutch cable fine, checked linkage everything intact. The gear shift is like spaghetti (just moves around very very easily without pushing in clutch) While trying to put in gear it makes no noises at all no grinding nothing. I was told i need to get a new rebuilt transmission. Could it be anything else? Car was driving just fine than boom car wont go into any ge


The fact that you feel nothing at all with your shifter sounds like a linkage issue. Check the shifter linkage all the way to the tranny. Watch the linkage while having a helper move the shifter. If you have linkage movement between the tranny and ... 1985 Chevrolet Sprint

I have a 1998 Accent 5spd manual. Cant shift into any gear while car is running, if I turn the car off and put it in gear it will start and move in the process or start and not move but if I let off the clutch very little it engages. Any help?


It is possible that your clutch and the idling counter wheel is not getting detached. Unless the selected gear are moved into the notch the particular gear will not engage. So in this case we have the gear box as the complaint. I hope the gear oils ... Hyundai Accent

Had trouble when I put it in Drive. Car didn't move. Tried all gears and nothing. Tried again and it worked. It was almost like the automatic clutch wasn't engaging. Now it doesn't move at all. Manual says I can't check the fluid. There are no smells that would indicate the clutch burned and no noises out of the ordinary to say something let loose in the transmission. Engine has about 80K on it. This car is well maintained and not driven hard.


If you have no dipstick on the transmission, you will see a fill plug on it.(usually a red cap) there is another plug that needs to be removed on or near the passenger side axle extension (on transmission). That plug needs to be removed on level grou ... 2004 Pontiac Grand Am

Replaced ECM on mitsubishi 300gt 1991 5 speed and now I cannot shift. Did not have this issue before but the car has been sitting for 4+ months. Car starts and idles, shifter goes into gears clutch needs to be pushed in for shifting and has good tension. Will get grinding if clutch not pushed in when attempting to switch gears.

Car starts fine. stopped at redlight, went to take off and car would not move. it's a 5 spd 91 accord. put car in neutral let go of clutch and it kills.HELP! it's like i had my foot on the brake or something. Car will not move in any gear.


One immediate possibility occurs to me, if letting out the clutch in Neutral kills the engine - transmission failure. Locked brakes would not cause the engine to die in neutral. Your trans is siezed - so if you connect it to the engine (by releasin ... 1988 Honda Accord 4 Door

My car starts but when i try putting it into reverse, it just grinds and doesnt go anywhere. it won't even go into any of the other gears. i can put it into reverse and ease off the clutch and give it gas and it doesnt go anywhere. and i can let the clutch go while its in reverse and it will still run where it would usually die if i let the clutch go without giving it gas. i don't know what the problem could be

Synchronizer I just had the clutch on my 2004, 5 speed Toyota Corolla replaced. My car now makes a grinding g sound only when I shift into 3rd gear. If I shift slowly into 3rd, I seldom grinds. It always grinds when I downshift into 3rd gear. Should I have the repair shop that replaced my clutch fix this issue at no cost( the shop knew it was grinding when I picked it up and it cost me 1K to replace the clutch? I drove the car when the clutch "went out" to get it to the garage (about 10 miles),

Manual transmission ok when i dont have the car started i can put it in all gears but as soon as i start the car i cant put in gear unless i force it in gear. i can start the car with in already in gear but its like i have already released the clutch. Ive already justed the cables on the top back of the transmisssion to make sure they moved when u put it in gear and ive checked the clutch cable in the front top of the transmission and they all move.


Clutch, pressure plate and throw out bearing most likely need replaced if the cable assembly to it is working properly. Those parts release the transmission from the motor while running thats why its doing that to you. ... 1993 Toyota Paseo

Ok, here's a doosie for ya, I have a 91 civic, 5 speed manual with 185k miles on it. A few weeks ago it started making an awful noise coming from the area of the bell housing. It sounds like metal rubbing (not grinding) on metal. The noise is there on and off when idleing, regardless if clutch is in or out, but is really loud when the car is moving in reverse, 1st and 2nd gear. The noise backs off a bit when in 3rd and is completely gone when in 4th and 5th gear. I took it to a mechanic's s


I think your gear box will have to come out, because I believe what you're hearing, is a damaged bearing....I can't recall if your car uses a pilot bearing, but I believe it does and that one would be a suspect.\012\012Another of the bearing's ... 1991 Honda Civic

Just purchased a 1996 Grand Am. The transmission doesn't engage in reverse or drive unless you rev the engine while in gear and then it moves as if i am driving a standard transmission and very slowly letting up on the clutch. Then finally engages as if I popped the clutch and drives normal with rpms staying between 1 and 2. I checked the fluid level with engine running and it is fine. I think the car may have been setting for a while. It has 162000 miles on it.

Transmission My faithful companion of some 15 years is letting me down... It began around the holidays and I was on a decline and heard a clunk and grind which abated when I let off the gas. Next time I drove there was an audible clunk when shifting gears. I had my mechanic check it and it was worse afterwards... new tranny $1,400. Ouch! Now there is only a rare clunk, but the transmission may or may not engage. [It is a little nerve wracking at an intersection when my car won't move and every

When ever i shift into 1st at a slow roll it grinds as well as everytime i shift into second and sometimes third but most problems come for 2nd gear. i can push the clutch in and insted of pulling straight down i pull down half circle then down into second and it lets it go in nicer at a slow roll. but if i hitting on hit gettig up to highway speed it will grind bad in second. and if my car sits over night it sticks a bit in 1st.
