Clutch issues


Recommended Posts

I have a 1988 Pathfinder, 4x4, two door.  The clutch pedal was not returning and sticking so I replaced both the master cylinder and slave cylinder and bleed the system.  Pedal felt great and shifted fine for a day and 1/2.  On my way home at a stop light, shift to 1st and take off fine, shift to 2nd fine then 3rd and the engine revs up and nothing catches, like it is in neutral.  I try all gears, same thing like it stuck in neutral.  I can shift into any gear easily but nothing catching engine on or off, just feels like it stuck in neutral.  Can a clutch go bad the fast? or could it be something else keeping it from engaging the gears?

Could be that the clutch let go, or the release bearing could be stuck. Does the pedal still feel normal, or does it feel like there is nothing there? If it still has normal or close to normal feel, then it is likely the clutch has died.
