Transmission wont go into gear
I have. A 1994 with the 2.5 4 cylinder nd ax5 transmission. 2 weeks ago i put in a new tranny, pressure plate, and clutch. Today i put in a new slave and master cylinder. The clutch pressure is great but i cant get into ne gear. Iv bled the crap out if it and still cant get into gear. Can anyone help me?

Do you put the clutch disc in the right way? There is an engine side and a trans side. Also did you mess with the clutch release fork? If so did the retaining spring break? And most importantly was the trans a rebuild or JY tranny?

I had a shop put in the tranny, pressure plate and clutch. It was running perfect but then yesterday i was driving and when i pushed the clutch in it was still bogging itself down. When i got home i turned it off and started it in first with the clutch pushed in and it pulled itself. I called the guy that put everything in and he said it was the slave and cylinder. After i changed it realized the main hose goin from the master cylinder was loose and allowing air in so i went ahead and out a new master cylinder in. Iv bled the hell out of it. I started at 9 am nd had to quit at 5 for work. I can go into every gear with the engine off but if i start it in gear it pulls itself and then i cant go in or out of gear

Explain your bleed process.... may give a clue as to WHY it is NOT working.....

That and also did you compare the new parts to the old? That look similar or the same.

They y look the same and i will pump the clutch several times then my friend opens the bleeder. Every 2 times i check the fluid

Open the bleeder with the clutch in then tighten refer and repeat? Just incase you don't know you never want to leave the bleeder open while pumping the clutch. This will cause air to enter the system again.

Something else to think about. I just went through a few different name clutchs from different auto parts stores. Had kind of similar problems but had a hard time bleeding them and travel of through out bearing seemed to be to short. I finally went to local Napa store and spent around 250.00 for complete set and took care of my problems. the brand name was a LUK and was the consensus of quite a few shops around here that is what they install for their clutch packages. All seems to be well now for the last 6 months Good Luck

Try gravity bleeding the clutch, no pumping just remove the top on the master cylinder make sure that its full then open the bleeder ar the slave cylinder and let it run untill you dont see any bubbles , just watch that the master cylinder remains full. Usually 5 minutes does it. Been doing cars that way for 35 years and it has always worked for me.
PS. it works on brakes too.
