99 Lude Clutch

Im having second guesses as to what my problem is.

It all started a couple months back. The first symptoms I started getting was a chatter in my wheels when taking off from a stop. It started out real bad, but in time has gone away exept for once in a great while it will do it very mildly. Now I dont know if it has anything to do with my current symptoms, but im just letting you know how it all started out.

My second symptom is my current symptom but it too only happens periodically. It started happening right around the time i had the chatter to my wheels. It started out when coming to a stop with the clutch pushed in, it still wanted to make the car progress mildly in a forward motion. Not much but you can feel the car jerking forward as if the clutch wasnt disengaging all the way. It would happen quite often at first then it seemed to go away after a couple weeks. Then one time i was at a gas station and i was getting in my car to leave and I started the car and it would not go into gear at all. The car was started,clutch puched in and it was trying to grind hard into gear. It would not go into any gear with out grinding as if the clutch was not pushed in at all. So i turned off the car, pushed in the clutch and put it into first gear, then started in up with it in gear. It nudged the car forward a little when it started, then everything was ok and ran fine and i drove away with no problems. whatever it was having problems fixed itself forcefully. A couple more weeks go by and I think everything is doing ok, then other day I started my car to leave, let it warm up then when i tried to drive away it wouldnt go into gear again. So i tried to fix it the same way i fixed it at the gas station and it still wasnt working. I put it into gear with the clutch pushed in and the car running and it was trying to slowly drive the car. If the car was in gear while running, it wouldnt let me take it out and if the car was out of gear while running it wouldnt let me put it in. Today the car is driving fine, but i just know i havent seen the last of it.

Now ive heard of 2 possible issues that may be causing this.

A: My master cylinder to my clutch is going out.
B: My pilot barring to my clutch is going out.

Any additional ideas and opinions are extremely appreciated and helpful.


Thanks again!

I guess no one tried to help you out, and you're probably gone by now, but it sounds like the same problem I had. It sounds like you either have a bad Master/Slave Cylinder, or a bad throwout bearing. Either way, what's happening is that your clutch is not fully disengaging when you push the pedal to the floor. I currently have the same EXACT problem. Eventually, mine got so bad, that the clutch won't even disengage enough for me to put my car into gear, i push the clutch down all the way and it feels as if i'm not pushing it down at all. For me, it is a bad throwout bearing. I'm saving up the money to get a new clutch/flywheel now.

its ur master cylinder most likely i had the same problems u stated. look behind ur clutch pedal where it connect to the master cylinder and see if it looks like it is leaking or anything. i replaced mine and its been fine since
