I'm a beginner. I changed a clutch with a new clutch set but I have the problem that it does not want to apply or apply rough. I have this question, maybe someone laugh or something, but it's possible that the master cylinder clutch is damaged too at the same time? I purge the system with new dot3 liquid, that change, can damaged the master cylinder clutch?

when the car is not running (engine off) the transmission shifts apply, but when I turn the engine on and it apply rough or not apply. I reviewed all the things that I do 6 times with all the information you send to me and other that I found in the shop-key pro program on my college and ask and tell what I do to my teachers and I make everything okay by the book. The only thing that I did not changed was the master cylinder clutch. I put new grease into the transmission 75w 90. 2 quarts and I measure the level until the fill plug is dripping some grease. And that's it. What I left to do? What have I missed? Change the master cylinder clutch.

Welcome to 2CarPros.

Based on your description, either the clutch master cylinder is bad or the clutch slave cylinder is bad. If you pump the clutch several times, can you smoothly shift into gear with the engine running?

After reading your question, my first suspect is the clutch master cylinder. Here are the directions for replacement or overhaul. The attached pictures correlate with the directions.

Also, here are the directions for removing, overhauling, and replacement of the clutch slave cylinder which can also be bad. The difficult thing is to determine which is the problem. Both can cause this issue, a soft or spongy clutch pedal and so on. Most commonly, you will find a leak at the slave. The master cylinder usually goes bad internally.
