Q: Throwout bearing fork problem

asked by on

I have an issue with the throwout bearing fork. It's not allowing the clutch to engage.

Hi, if there is no fluid leaking from under the car then the linkage has an issue somewhere. All of the components in the clutch linkange are susceptible to wear and tear over the years and should be inspected. A certified technician, such as one from YourMechanic, would be able take a look at the linkages and cable to make sure there is no damage.
