Alright so I installed a new clutch package for someone buttons everything back up, bled the master cylinder and thought everything was good to go. Went to start the car, turn the key and nothing happened. No click, no wind, no turn of the flywheel. All wires were connected and battery was good. Found out the clutch safety switch connected to the pedal was the problem. It actually works fine, heres the issue. The clutch pedal rod is stiff as a rock and wont go down far enough to complete the connection for the safety switch. I thought being a new clutch it just needed more pressure to the pedal. I pressed as hard as I could until there was a "pop". The master cylinder quick disconnect popped out of the transmission hole where it links up to the internal slave cylinder in the tranmission. Whats going on. Why is it rock solid? Is the clutch not disengaging, is it stuck, was the quick disconnect reinstall incorrectly, did I install the clutch wrong? Please help. This was a job worth $300 and as a college student thats alot of money to lose. (The guys pissed I havent finished in the general time frame. Thanks for the help guys.
Just to add this is a 2003 ford f150 4.2 V6 Manual. I just read you have to adjust the clutch pressure plate on some models. Somebody hit me because I didnt. Did mine need to be adjusted?
have the same problem?
