Q: Goes in gear but goes no where. Bleed the clutch

asked by on

Goes in gear while car is on even when the clutch is pushed in but it goes no where. Rpms go up on dial.
My car has a manual transmission.

This sounds like you have a bad clutch or transmission input shaft is not turning for some reason. You should have the transmission removed to have the transmission and clutch checked to isolate the cause of the no clutch engagement. Most likely a clutch assembly replacement will repair the condition.
