Clutch problems ae indicated by slipping ( engine rpms rising but not going ant where), slipping may be a faulty clutch master cylinder, shuddering as you let the clutch out ( clutch plate covered with grease /oil ---OR--- faulty engine mounts. pedal to the floor is a problem in the hydraulics or a cable failure. A cable failed and jammed will also cause a slipping clutch
so to summerise ,if the clutch is slipping --check out the hydraulics and cables. If it is shuddering --check out the engine mounts. Basically if it starts to slip after being driven for a period of time then it will be the clutch pressure plate /clutch plate worn

Do you still feel the same feedback from gear lever when you change gear or it appear loose? It looks like a gearbox problem, maybe due to low gearbox oil something has broken inside the gearbox.

My truck is stuck in nutral and wont go into any gear


Hi Rach,
Do the gears change with the engine off? If they change you have a clutch assembly problem. If the gears refuse when off the problem is with the gearbox.

Started having trouble getting it into gear while stopped. Would have to rev up engine a bit and play the shifter in. About 20 min. later while shifting from 2nd to 3rd had no gears . now it won't find any...


Sounds like your cluch has worn out. Can you select gears normally when the engine is off? If you can, then maybe you could check the clutch cable adjustment. That may fix the problem. If not, with the car in an area away from other cars and buildings, select a gear with the engine off, and with your foot on the clutch, start the car. If the car starts and feels like it wants to drive off (with your foot still on the clutch), then the clutch is not disengaging the engine from the gearbox. Gearbox removal time unfortunately.

After starting the car and pressing on the clutch, my shifter wont go into any gears, i go to put it in first and the shifter itself wont go in, what could cause this


If the shifter feels loose, the shifter linkage / damper to the gearbox became disconnected, or broken. These parts are serviceable, and should be replaced when shifting ceases to be accurate, and gears are hard to find. If the shifter feels normal, then the clutch is out of adjustment and not disengaging completely, or there is a failure of some sort inside the gearbox.

1 of 2 things, 1, your clutch needs slight adjustment as reverse needs that bit extra of free play, the 2nd thing it could be is the sycromch for the reverse gear, this would probably mean a new gearbox,

1988 golf 1.3 gearbox/clutch funny sound?


First check the oil level in the gearbox. The noise you hear sounds as though the pressure plate of the clutch is faulty. If every time you press the clutch pedel the noise goes away it points to the clutch. If this model has a manual clutch cable adjuster, try and adjust it to see if there is any inprovement.
