Need tranny help

Hello All,

A buddy of mine not online is having problems with his 5 speed. You push the clutch pedal to the floor, start the engine, and if the tranny is in gear the truck starts moving forward. You have to apply a lot of pressure to pull the shifter out of gear, and it wants to grind going into gear a lot. I figured it was a stretched clutch cable, but we swapped another one on and it didn't seem to change anything. The replacement cable was used, however. When you lay them side by side, they appeared to be the same length.

Any Ideas?

TIA,

Broken forks or the shift lever on the trans is stipped. Also could have a bad pressure plate/throw out.

Re: Need tranny help

hey man, roll your head WAYYYYYYY up under the dash, on the clutch pivot, theres a splined arm that actually bolts onto it. its the arm that the clutch cable actually hooks on. had the splines strip out on my first zuk.

Re: Need tranny help

sure sounds like the clutch is not disengaging . i had the same problem as billy bob on a former zuk. you could check by moving the clutch lever on the bellhousing to the fully disengaged position with the cable disconnected--use vise grips etc. crank it & see if the problem is gone--don't lie under it and hold the lever by hand!!! good luck & be careful--i'm at work & not looking at my zuk so i can't remember exactly how i disengaged the lever but it wasn't hard to figure out!
