Help; Car not moving but speedometer reading car in gear, engine running.

So, a few weeks ago one of the torsion springs in my clutch tore out and made engaging the clutch occasionally impossible. Got it home alright and proceeded to replace the clutch.

Everything went more or less fine outside of some rusted bolts that snapped on me in bushings.

Finally got the car all back together(benchpressing tranny into place proved to be impossible without someone to guide it up top).

So far so good. I started the car, checked all the gears, checked for leaks. Everything is fine. Backed the car up and out of the driveway. Went through first and into second. Just after putting the car in 2nd there is a loud cluck and I lose all power to the wheels.

Pushed the car back into the driveway and started to trouble shoot. Run of wonderful luck continues for me - clutch master cylinder starts leaking into the cabin while trouble shooting - so I go inside and stew for a bit.

Noticed a few things.

1 The speedo reads that I am moving while engine is on and in gear. if I shift into higher gears the speedo reads higher speeds, ditto if I rev the car. (Speedo moves a hair when car is not in gear as well)

2 It sounds like there is a rattling in the bell-housing(i think) that was not there when I first replaced the clutch.

I've been trying to wrap my head around the speedo working. It would indicate that the gears are all working and the power is, at least, getting to the transaxle(assuming this is where the speed sensor gear engages). Thought it might be a broken, or popped, CV joint or halfshaft. But, I won't be able to jack the car up until I get a hand getting it up the driveway and into the garage(damn hills). And that doesn't explain the rattle.

Anyone have any thoughts?

Having a cv axle pop out or break would cause that to happen.

Thanks, Phantom. I'll have a look tomorrow. I really just don't want to take that transmission out again. An Axle isn't so bad.

Is it possible to buy a rebuilt kit for the clutch master cylinder? If so, could you point me towards a source?

Thanks again

No commercial parts store is gonna have a rebuild kit on hand, and most don't even sell them anymore. The master cylinder is pretty cheap to begin with, and taking them apart is a real b*tch.

Re: Help; Car not moving but speedometer reading car in gear, engine running.

I've done brake master cylinders before. Bit of a pain. But, not too bad. Can't see the clutch being that bad. But, I'd also like the car back on the road by thursday. Which might not leave much time if parts have to be shipped.

Re: Help; Car not moving but speedometer reading car in gear, engine running.

if the speedo is moving that means the diff is turning there an problem either in an axle or in the diff . are you sure your axle is snapped all the way in ???? they can look in but unless there damn near flush to the trans there not snapped in ..

I'll know tomorrow. I thought they were all the way in. But, to be honest. By the time I got to that point I was rushing it.
