David Thomas: I have a 2011 Honda Civic. I tried rocking it out of ice by engaging and disengaging clutch. Unsuccessful. Now, I can't engage with the clutch at all. In any gear, I let the clutch out and the engine just revs. And, I left the car overnight on a slight hill, in first gear (no brake on) and, after the ice melted, it coasted backwards until it hit somebody's garbage bags. Could have been so much worse. What do you think the problem is? Clutch, a linkage, transmission, etc?

atique M: Hi ,
I was enjoying my ride at 80-90 Km/hrs Express highway, suddenly I noticed that my car is not accelerating further even after giving acceleration . later it was not picking up after restarting again . I want to know possible reasons behind this sudden failure , as previously no slowdown symptom was persist in my car .

Appreciate if you can revert earliest .

Beau Grieve: ove got a Toyota csi 98 model, the clutch on it is just like the video..

Heather Matteson: I have a '93 honda civic. This morning on my way to work, I was coasting up the freeway off ramp. When I pushed in the clutch and tried to bring the gear shifter out of 5th, it felt crunchy, and then wouldn't go into another gear. I tried all the other gears - reverse would grind the teeth. After shutting off the car, I decided to try wiggling the gear shifter around more in 5th. FInally, it popped out, and then I could shift normally again.

Do you have troubleshooting tips?

Thanks for the try Jhong. I flushed the system. Then it was better for a about a week. Then started grinding A LOT. I replaced the slave and master cylinders. Grinding changed, but still hard to shift and sounds like something is loose and rattling around. The disk?

Joe O Sullivan: I don't see why it HAS to be a two-man job..The way I usually bleed brakes is to pump, then hold the brake pedal down with something (a log) between the seat and the pedal, crack the bleeder, and repeat. It does take more time but always works fine. To get a bit of 'spring' I put a large book between the log and the seat, so that the surface area and 'springiness' of the seat cushion keeps pressure applied. Obviously you need to be more careful of the amount of air/fluid you let out each time since you don't have anyone telling you that the pedal has hit the floor! With the clutch I'd assume the one-man way would be easier again since you can just pin the pedal to the floor..

Zxenmusic: My clutch cable might have snapped, right?

weez1217: My 99 Saturn SC2 1.9L 5 speed, clutch all the way out for 1st gear and have to rev rpm just for it to engage. Need new clutch, plate, bearing, or can I just try bleeding the line? Please help.

James walker: My 2003 Toyota celica clutch pedal is very hard to push and grinds to go into gear. I float the gears after that. any ideas?

wallace najiy: my 1994 jeep yj is getting harder to go in gear while idling. What is going on?

Sarah Brocklehurst: My fiat 500 when i put my foot down on the clutch and then i slowly release it ,it feels strange it feels like it is springing back up any ideas..?...Thankyou
