Check the hydraulic fluid to your clutch master cylinder. If it's low you may have a warn clutch or a leak in the system, and most likely at the clutch slave cylinder. Try adding more fluid if it's low and bleeding the system, at worst your going to need to replace the clutch. Also it would not hurt to check your transmission fluid or better yet service it to replace the oil transmission fluid with new fluid. You'll find the fill and drain bolt at the side of the transmission. Good luck and keep me posted, thank you for using Fixya.

How to adjust the clutch on a 1999 Ford escort ZX2


The clutch is not adjustable it is fully hydraulic. That means it is self adjusting, if the clutch pedal engages high on the pedal and the clutch is hard to push you need a new clutch plate and pressure plate.

I have a 1999 Lexus ES300 that will not go into reverse or shift out of second gear, et pulls good and hard in first and second. No noises or slippage at all. Does anyone know of a shift sensor or computer...


There is nothing electrical that will keep the trans from going into reverse. The direct clutches ( third ) are used in reverse. I would guess you have a direct clutch problem. Time for a rebuild or replacement.

Manual transmission is hard to shift into gears, when car is not running it shifts between gears smoothly, when it is running you have to push or pull extremely hard to force into gears


It sounds like your clutch may not be releasing full. Does it shift easily if you match the speed of the engine and transmission shaft closely? Does the clutch feel normal?

I have a 1992 Gmc sierra manual transmission, the gears are hard


It is an adjustment or clutch replacenment issue. Manual transmissions rarely have a lube issue unless you have seen a big puddle of very thick oil in the driveway.

I think I'd be looking at the clutch of this 16 year old vehicle. Unless you have the tools, time and skill to change the clutch, this is probably a job better left to a professional. Adjusting the clutch mechanism might help for a while but I think you will soon need a clutch job on your GMC.

Hard to shift into first gear


Tighten clutch cable until the car would start to move when the clutch peddle is 50% depressed, Before you do that, with the clutch fully depressed and in 2nd gear, start the car and slowly let off the clutch. You may find that the clutch has to be released virtually all the way before the car moves. It should be at about that 50% I spoke about

92 Honda Accord, 5 speed, hard shifting into first & second gear.


First thing to do,try to pump your clutch before you shift into 1st gear then if you feel makes better, most probably you have problem with your hydraulic clutch system, check the clutch line if there is an evidence of fluid leaking or it could be internal leak.

Second thing to do, check your transmission oil, may be it' s too old or you use a thick oil thats why when cold its hard to shift then when the engine rich the normal temperature(warm) the oil become thin and the shifting will smooth. Remember the very old oil become thicken and the purity is gone and can cause of hard shifting. in this regards i suggest you to change the transmission oil and check the used oil if there is small peace of metals, then you are in big trouble,

Difficulty shifting, especially into 2nd gear


sounds like you have air in your hydrolic portion of your clutch system, you need to see if your slave cylnder or your clutch master cylnder is leaking fluid putting air in your system. If the case is that you have just a hard to get in gear such as only 2nd then i would have suspected your secronizer ring being bad. or if all gears seem to be hard cold then you would either have a leaking hydrolic cylnder or the wrong fluid in trans.
