Why won't my 2000 accord go into 1st gear when the engine is running?
Just replaced the whole clutch assembly on my 2000 Honda accord. All the parts replaced are brand new from the pressure plate, disc, throw out bearing, flywheel, and the clutch slave cylinder. After installing all the new parts and putting the transmission back on the shifter will let me go through every gear 1-5 including reverse. As soon as I start the car though it won't let me go into any gear.
Start with the basics. Is the slave cylinder properly blead? I bet it's something simple like that.
what it does when it's not running is not connected to what it does when it is running- any clutch/tranny is like that- when doing a major repair like that, it's best to do one thing at a time so you can see the effects of your work- in this case, you should have waited to mess with the hydraulics until you could tell if you put all the mechanics back correctly- oh well, now you have to see if it is the hydraulic system- hopefully, it is, because you do not want to take it all apart again- I would replace the clutch master, too, the whole thing should be done, then make sure they have no air in the system- while it is up in the air, have someone pump the clutch pedal, and watch to see if you are getting any action out of it-
