check your clutch fluid...i had the same problem on my s-10. if your clutch fluid is low fill it up with either clutch fluid or break fluid works too. make sure that your master cylinder isn't leaking too, this could be the cause of low clutch fluid. (you should check that every six months)

New Answer HeadlineThe slave cylinder needs replacing. This is located under the vehicle, possibly on passenger side as long as it is an external one however on some truck models it will be located inside the front of the transmission thus meaning transmission must be dropped to get to it This is what makes your clutch work very similar to the breaking system beings how at times if had a leak you would need to top off the fluid level(brake fluid) and then bleed the clutch to remove air from line and to bring pedal pressure back up that will in turn allow you to shift gears the slave cylinder will have a bleed nipple on it just like your brake lines do AnswerIt depends on the car.

If your clutch is hydraulic--not all of them are, kids--you've either got a low (well, no) fluid condition, a bad master cylinder, a bad clutch cylinder or a leak somewhere between the two cylinders.

If it's a cable-operated clutch, the cable needs adjusting really bad.

Can a axle cause your clutch to break on a 1999 Volkswagen Passat?

Did you break the clutch cable or the clutch disc?Clutch cables break because they just wear out. The axle can't do that.What normally causes clutch discs to fail is overstress: you pushed the clutch in without letting off the gas, downshifted at too high a speed, or souped up your engine without putting a stronger clutch in the car. Axles can't do that either.

That depends on operator / driver ability to properlyup-shift and downshift gears without putting increased wear on pressure plate. Do not ride the clutch for any reason as this will cause premature pressure plate / clutch wear. Clutch wear is caused from starting out in the wrong gear and riding the clutch or letting the clutch out to fast, jarring the drive train, same as downshifting, letting the clutch out forcefully and putting additional stress through out the drive train. Improper releasing the clutch pedal can damage a clutch very easily;When starting out on level ground release the clutch slowly until vehicle starts to move then apply the gas slowly, watch your RPM gauge and when up-shifting, try to keep the shiftsSMOOTH;DO NOT pop the clutch for any reason as this will cause clutch and transmission failure;Clear concise shifting at recommended rpm will save clutch wear;Pulling a trailer also will put additional stress on the clutch /pressure plate and causewear if not operated properly;Road conditions also play a factor, as excessive wheel hopping, dirt, can also cause pressure plate failure;Learning to shift without a clutch is possible but may cause transmission.To make your clutch last longer, just use your clutch carefully and drive with due care.Clutches wear out over time as does any auto part, but are made to last if properly adjusted.However nothing will last forever so careful shifting without taking excessively long periods to make the shift is important.My rule of thumb is when starting out in first gear, release the clutch and hit the gas gingerlywithout jarring the drive train, once the vehicle is moving reach the desired rpm and depress the clutch while completing the shift, release the clutch prudently, try to keep everything as smooth as possible.When downshifting remember that you must factor in that RPM'S as downshifting and letting the clutch out fast will cause drive train issues if not done correctly;Starting on hills, takes practice, even the most skilled drivers stall the engine until they get the hang of it, using the emergency brake is a sure way to cause clutch wear unless extremely skilled.Many truck drivers, only use the clutch when starting out and then use the rpm ( or engine sound ) to shift gears without the clutch, this is said to stop spaghetti leg which is a repetitive motion injury due to excessive shifting;Good Luck; From BJ

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.

1992 Jeep Wrangler gears grind when being shifted and the rpms have to be about 2500 before you can shift without grinding all fluids have been checked What can cause that?

I would suspect a weak clutch slave cylinder or clutch master cylinder which may be preventing the clutch from disengaging fully; The slave cylinder is connected hydraulically to the clutch master cylinder. The clutch master is where you add fluid.

What would cause a kohler engine 20 hp crankshaft pulley getting red hot burning belts off what causes it?

The most likely cause of the extreme heat is either slippage of the belt or the PTO clutch. Are you noticing the blades slowing down when in deep grass, when you engage the PTO do the blades go to full speed immediately or do they slowly pick up speed. Other causes would be a bad bearing on one of the blade spindles causing extreme loading of the clutch.

A corroded distributor cap and rotor will cause a vehicle to be difficult if not impossible to start and may cause the motor to run rough.
