I just finished my b18 swap and i cranked it up and it wont go into gear to move. None of them. So.... I went through the usual diagnosis. New clutch master, clutch slave, new clutch, new flywheel, and i bled the system down. I can see the slave working, so i do have hydrolic pressure.
I did bypass the neutral safety switch under the pedal with a push button start, but the switch is still plugged in. So idk if that can cause an issue
What can be the issue? Im able to shift into gears when the engine isnt running, but when the engine is running all i get is a grind. My guess is that the clutch isnt engaging. Please help
The clutch is not "disengaging", to confirm this, place in first gear and step on the clutch then turn ign. to start, [just for a sec.] if the car lurches forwards the clutch is not disengaging.
If car does not lurch forwards, clutch is disengaging and you have another problem, either shift linkage is misaligned, [unlikely if it will shift into gear when engine is not running, although still a possibility] or more likely it's bent shift forks or maybe blown synchromesh, [also unlikely if you can't put it into any gear]. 94

I have had the same problem,for me the fork assembly was not pushing the clutch in far enough to engage the clutch, I pulled my tranny off took off the fork, there is a nut that holds it on put two or three washers on the bolt then put the bolt back on the tranny, never had a problem with the clutch engaging after that. It was also a b18 swap with stage 2 clutch. Hope this helps.
this is crazy iam having the same problem on two single cams . car turns on with out presing the clutch i can easyly put it into any gear and it wont do nothing at all .. Took the trany down put the new clutch in and still the same thing . Help help help please .. Adames123@msn.com
I have a problem with my manual transmission , it would work and angage fine for about 20 min if driving and then it would not engage at all till it coold down please help any idea why its doing this ??
Old topic but I'm also having the same problem. I replaced the flywheel, clutch, and pressure plate (all brand new) and now my car wont go into ANY gear with the engine running, it does with it off. The slave cylinder works fine and I already bled the system. Any ideas why I cant get a gear??!?!?!
I have the same problem but I checked the flywheel clutch and pressure plate and they are all good.
Gears won't go in when car is on only off.
But I was thinking.. Could it be because I cleaned the clutch with wd40??????
I went hydro.. Hush22 kit.
I found out what was my problem but I don't understand it.
If I push the clutch all the way.. Gears won't go in
But if I push it 3/4 in, gears go in
Do I need to adjust the pedal?
