Its probably a bad throwout bearing. Only one thing can do that. You eight have worped rotors or worped drums. You can find out wich one it is by engaging the emergancy brake SLOWLY and if you feel it its the rear and if you dont it the front. You need to be VERY carful when you do this. Driving slow and on a side street. Ray
Many things, but a clutch bearing seems likely.
A slipping clutch.
If it doesn't move if in neutral, then it could mean the cable needs to be adjusted, or the clutch plate needs replacing.
yes hydraulic could cause this also the clutch pressure plate could be collapsed
could the tranfercase cause the clutch too hang up or is it the clutch slave,that could be hungup..
Because the clutch doesn't apply power
Does this happen when you come to a complete stop or while you are coming to a stop? Is this Truck Automatic or Standard? Brake booster could be something, Torque Converter Clutch Valve not disengaging(Automatic).
There isn't any linkage, it has a cable, check to see if the cable is loose. There is a U clip that holds the cable in place,if the U clip is in place and there isn't any slack in the cable, it could be your tranny. Is the clutch disengaging? If when you push the clutch in the engine can be turned over or the car can be pushed, it is not a problem with the clutch.
It could be either one. it may be your tranny not doing its job 100% or it could be that your clutch could be bad. but you'd have to really look and see whats wrong, before you even atempt to try replacing something, when it could have been the other. then it'll have cost more.
If the clutch switch failed then the car will not start unless the switch is bypassed. The purpose of a clutch safety switch is to prevent the car from dangerously starting, so when it malfunctions that car will not start without it switch off.
if its hydraulic there could be air in your line. bleed your clutch and refill.
Perhaps clutch throw-out bearing?
I would check clutch plate, if faulty renew, the clutch might need adjusting.
Yes it could.
If it does this in all gears, I bet your clutch is shot. Other things that could cause problems are the Clutch master cylinder or clutch slave cylinder.
Perhaps your timing.
broken clutch cable could also be a shot slave cylinder...this will cause the clutch pedal to not come back up.
If it has a hydraulic clutch, it is probably the slave cylinder. You could still have pedal but the slave is letting the fluid past the seals. Have someone watch the slave while the clutch pedal is pushed.
There could be a number of reasons why your truck will not shift properly. There could be something wrong with your clutch or transmission.
check the recalls for the 99 mercury cougar!! it includes a recall on the throttle cable...
Start by checking the fuel pressure.
Possibley, the Clutch sensor, or the transmission is going.
Could be clutch cooling fan engaging
