This shall be a lesson to you about winterizing your bike. Let's take it from the top. Drain that nasty ancient gas out of the tank AND out of the carburetor bowl(s). You want it completely gone, all of it. If you're lucky, you'll be able to use "carburetor & fuel injector cleaner" (the fuel additive, NOT the spray) to clean any new varnish out of the ...

I would remove the spark plugs and spray some lubricant into the cylinders. Use something like PB Blaster, SeaFoam, Liquid Wrench etc. Allow it to sit overnight. With the bike on the center stand, the ignition in "off", the transmission in gear rotate the back wheel to see if the motor will turn over. You should see some of the oil being pushed out of the ...

I think that because or corrosion and stick together of some parts. Knocking could help to release you clutch. Some other parts, like carburetor need to be cleaned. Fresh fuel, new plug, start help spray.

My bet is... the clutch disk (the friction part) happens to vibrate at a frequency that coincides with that particular engine RPM, and is barely free enough to vibrate with the clutch disengaged. If I'm correct, it's nothing to worry about - only an annoyance, and shouldn't shorten the life of the clutch.

The problem you're facing is not actually clutch sticking, but I guess it will sooner come to it, where your clutch would literally get stuck to the floor and won't lift up. Here are a few things that might be causing this: Broken clutch cable. (Stretched cable might also be a reason) Hydraulics line may have some air. Your clutch master cylinder being ...

Now we don't know what car it is. Anyway the are two types of clutch release: hydraulic and cable pull. I would say, you have the second one. The problem is, that your cable do not release the clutch as good as early, because of corrosion or some technical effects. Look at the cable-gearbox-connection, how is that releasing. Maybe I am wrong and you have ...

The Vauxhall Astra gearbox oil does not have a quoted service life. If the oil is drained in to a clean container, and the oil itself has'nt been contaminated then it will be OK to re-use. There are several transmissions on the Astra Range and several have to have their own particular spec of gearbox oil. Vauxhall also recommend changing the trans drain and ...

Fortunately from your description, it sounds like more of an annoyance than a real problem. It could be any one of numerous mounts/bushing on the car which are causing this. Finding it would be a real pain. If you like the car and can put up with the squeak, I'd bet it's nothing to worry about. It's not the throw out bearing or the clutch, because the noise ...

Your Megane can have a four speed or a five speed box. This means the clutch can be cable operated or hydraulic operated. On a cable clutch you can have squeaks from the clutch pedal bushing, the cable attachment at the pedal, and also from the cable itself. The cable wears internally on bends in the cable. The inner cable cuts through its neoprene inner ...

This is symptomatic of worn clutch master or slave cylinder. With the engine off, press the clutch pedal to the floor as slowly and as lightly as you can. If when you release the clutch pedal it is now without any pressure, this proves that the seals are worn out and allowing the clutch fluid to pass by the seals. At this vehicle age it would be advisable to ...

I don't know if you are able to on the Miata clutches, but you could try bleeding the master/slave. If that doesn't work, it sounds like you are going to have to replace the assembly. It sounds like either the master or slave (or both) is getting worn out. The car is over 20 years old. You cannot expect the little mechanical things to last forever.
