Would appreciate some expert opinion. The car is a 1992 Mazda Astina Manual. It has been superbly maintained but suffers a violent shaking problem. This only happens when - a. the car is starting to move from stationary ( clutch being released gradually ). b. the road is sloping up at 10 % ( rough estimate ). c. NEVER happens once clutch is fully released and car is moving steady. The violent shaking can be avoided by immediately shifting down to Second gear or revving up the engine ( abou

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

I have an 87 Dodge Colt Vista 5 speed manual. The vehicle has been running fine. Yesterday when I shut it off it would not start again. Battery is good. The car tries to start but will not turn over. Oil and Water levels are good. When I tried to pop the clutch I discovered I had no gears, I would push the clutch in and release it and nothing happened. The car rolls forward while in gear. What has happened all of a sudden? Thank you in advance for any assistance you can give me.

I have a 97 sunfire. When I was installing an after market stereo I took the center console (semi) apart to run some wires. Now many things happened during this process. One, I moved the shifter into gear so when I started the car it did the " hard jump and kill" when I released the clutch. I think there may be a problem with the wire harness. The stereo connections, dome light, cig lighter all stopped working. I was carefull when dealing with the center console and have checked the little switc

Have a 1994 Probe with a 5-speed manual transmission. First thing that happened was all of a sudden every time I would put the clutch in, it would make a loud "screeching" sound, & if I was not moving, the car would die. Next day, had trouble getting into the gears,(moving or not). Tried to move it the next day and wouldn't really do much. Same things, trouble with gears. also, even if I had the clutch in, when I started it, it jumped as if the clutch wasn't in. Noticed it was making a noise fro

Manual transmission will not shift into any gear, even when the clutch is completely depressed. It's a hard shift to begin with and now when i have to come to a stop and say move it out of 4th gear and try to get it in to 2nd, it will not move into gear or any gear for that matter. i've turned the car off, started it, managed to shift into reverse and then get it into 1st then 2nd. happened suddenly hope it has something to do w/ the clutch and not the transmission.

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

I have a 1999 (actually late '98) VW Cabrio. Today while changing gears, the clutch pedal remained on the floor (did not return to normal position) and the clutch no longer worked. On further survey, the clutch is engaged regardless of pedal position, the mechanism under the hood (cable and lever) move when you manually move the foot pedal, and if you press real hard on the pedal the clutch will slightly release. Only when pressing hard will the safety allow the engine to be started. Prior t

1990 Toyota PICK UP SR5 V6, when in gear and start releasing clutch pedal, truck starts moving forward with slight jerking. As soon as I give it gas, it starts to **** harder, forcing me to shift into 2nd gear to avoid it. After that, shifting and acceleration is good. Just from dead stop, between 1-2 shifts. Replaced master and slave. Truck on, idling, fine. Rolling out of first, nasty.

I have a 1984 jeep CJ7 that has been sitting for 5 years. I finally had it started and the engine sounds great, but now it doesn't- the jeep-move. I can also just shift the gears without having to depress the clutch---but no movement of the vehicle---my gears are inoperable...what could be the cause of this? Clutch or transmission and why could this have happened?

Few days later, the car would start when in P but need to use the Shift Release to move the gear.

While driving my truck (ford f 150 1988 manual 6 cylinder 2 wheal drive) it sometimes starts to sputter, by this i mean it shakes about a bit and when i push on the gas pedal nothing happens. oddly if i apply a little pressure to the clutch and a little on the gas i can get the truck to poorly move at a relatively constant pace rarely over 45mph. Every time this has happened i have driven at least 5 miles and always have been in 3rd gear. What could be causing this?
