What does the clutch stay down instead of popping back up?

It sounds like there is air in the clutch line somewhere. Bleed the clutch (if possible, some clutches are "self-bleeding" and need to be replaced entirely).

down shifting is not bad at all... as long as your are downshifting properly and not trying to drop more than one gear at a time or dropping a gear, popping the clutch and redlining then, it's fine... when you're slowing down, squeeze the clutch, down shift, and slowly release the clutch... if you just let it go then yes it can be bad

There is a collar in the front of the transmission ( bellhousing ) that the throw-out bearing slides on when you push the clutch pedal down and let off. It more then likely has a bad were grove cut into it and throw-out bearing is hanging up on it, so it makes a popping noise. You may even have some springs broken in the pressure plate. Need to remove transmission and clutch assy. Be sure to check piolet bearing in the back of crankshaft too.

Usually when you are driving down the road and you punch it, your RPM's will jump then go back down. I had this problem in my 1988 S-10 and about 2 weeks later the clutch went.

Popping, commonly used in hip-pop dancing, is when the chest is pumped up and down.

Shut the throttle. Pull in your clutch. Kick the gear lever down. Let out the clutch. More advanced: Shut the throttle. Pull in your clutch. Kick the gear lever down. Blip the throttle - let out the clutch.

The clunk is probably a universal going bad, and the popping out is probably caused by worn sifter bushings

press down on the clutch, keep it pressed down, and have another person loosen the bleeder screw with the clutch depressed, then tighten it back up and release the clutch. Do this several times until you get a steady stream of fluid (with no air in the fluid) and be sure a keep the clutch master cyl. full at all times, because it will lose fluid when you bleed it Note: if the bleeder screw is tore up, you can always loosen the hose where it enters the slave, and do the same process, using the hose inlet instead of the bleeder screw.

The clutch arm is like a teeter-todder. The clutch arm sits on a pivot point in the transmission bell housing and disengages the clutch by pushing down on the pressure place through a "throw out" bearing when the clutch pedal is pushed down.

May be clutch cable sticking, clutch lever on the gearbox sticking or the actual friction plate in the clutch sticking on the shaft. the latter would probably mean taking the gearbox out to check. The clutch lever on box is easily oiled but usually the return from a clutch is great enough to pull it back but check anyway.

Underneath the car on the drivers side slighty behind the front wheel you should see the clutch cable. on there should be an adjustment so you can back the clutch off or give it more. I believe its a 9/16" or 1/2" nut that spins on the clutch cable to adjust it

Fault with clutch master cylinder.

User Avatar

There are two normal causes. The clutch is worn out or there is a leak in the hydraulic clutch slave or master cylinder. To check the clutch, press the clutch slave cylinder down. If the clutch slave cylinder bellows compresses down to the slave cylinder, the clutch is worn out. Check the clutch master cylinder fluid level. if this is low, then the clutch cylinder need to be checked. To check for a hydraulic leak in the clutch slave cylinder, remove the cylinder's bellows and check for any fluid. If fluid is present, rebuild or replace the cylinder and bleed the system. To check the clutch master cylinder, check the back the of clutch master cylinder for leaks. If fluid is present, replace or rebuild clutch master cylinder and bleed the system. In my experience, hydraulic leaks occur at the clutch slave cylinder.

When you are shifting gears, your RPMs will go down because your clutch is being pressed. If your RPMs don't go back up when you release your clutch, you should see a mechanic.

User Avatar

yes it does, you have to press down on the red button in-front of the clutch, then pull the clutch back with the button still down, then underneath the sit on the left side there is a red tipped lever that u lift up on that lever and your in reverse

the ATV should be in neutral to start the ATV. do not press the gas and lift the shifter up to put it in gear and push the throttle and you will be on your way. (some auto clutch ATV's gears are all down instead of up.)

Actually if the fluid is coming down the clutch pedal it is probably your clutch master cylinder going bad or the seal around it. No worries it is a cheap fix. If it is coming down the clutch pedal it has nothing to do with your brakes. Some people well most use brake fluid for the clutch.

You don't , it's not a hydraulic operated clutch To adjust the CABLE OPERATED clutch on a 1998 Ford Mustang : - Without the engine running , put your transmission in 1st gear - put your foot underneath the clutch pedal and GENTLY pull the clutch pedal back until it stops - SLOWLY push the clutch pedal down all the way , if your clutch needed adjusting you will hear a click

if the clutch is cable yes there is an adjuster down beside the transmission follow clutch cable

User Avatar

I believe this is a non adjustable clutch system, which means its a hydralic system, no adjustments. Either a slave cylinder down on the transmission itself or on firewall next to brake master cylinder there's a reservoir for the clutch. If its empty then you have a leak somewhere, try to fill it with brake fluid and pump clutch pedal several times to get clutch back and look for leaks

Push the clutch in and shift. For reverse, you have to push the shifter down towards the floor, then pull back and to the left.

For first gear, Hold the clutch, press the gear down, accelerate slowly and leave the clutch gradually... For the rest of the gears, hold clutch, press the gear down accelerate a little more than the current moving speed and leave the clutch a little faster than before...

If by "popping noise" you mean backfire, it could be crossed ignition wires, or some sort of misfire.
