Machine is behaving as if not getting any power, but light is on. Press foot pedal and absolutely nothing happens


There is probably a bad connection in your foot pedal. Try moving it around with your hands at the contact points while pressing to activate. If it goes when you are shifting its position then it needs to be fixed or replaced.

When I shift car into reverse or drive it will not move


When you're ready to pull off, be sure the emergency brake is off. Be sure the transmission fluid level is in the OK range to drive.. If neither of these suggestions works for your situation, give sequential information... pick a quiet time to set the parking brake, crank the car, put your foot on the brake pedal, shift into reverse careful to listen for what you can hear and also what you feel. foot still on brake pedal shift to drive. again what do you hear and or feel?

The foot pedal on my Singer Inspiration is stuck on fast speed.


Hi lawoffice474...

Unplug your foot pad from the machine and the electrical receptical.
Try moving the foot pedal with your hands, back and forth as if you were pressing your foot on it.
Did it loosen up?
If yes then you still need some maintenance...
If no then you still need some maintenance.
Disassemble the foot pedal and take as many pictures as you need to be able to reassemble it.
Once you have disassembled then you will look to oil (one drop max) the pivot points of the foot pedal, like the hinge assembly, reostat linkage,etc.
Once you have it oiled then try moving the foot pedal again my hand before reassembly.
If everything moves ok then your good to go...
Reassemble the foot control.
If not then its time to replace it with another foot pedal such as one of these at this webpage below:
Please take time to rate me thumbs up.

Rebuilt bottom end, all gears going in fine and shift pedal moving nicely, put clutch in and still ok. put back in frame and had to remove shift pedal .now i cant select any gear as will only move a small...


The shift lever has a return spring that pulls the actuator back up. If the gear on the shift shaft has slipped out of position with the gear from the shift drum actuator (the gears are in the wrong position) or the spring has become unhooked) you get the no shift condition. Your problem is probably being caused by a missing spacer or the parts were put back in incorrectly (the 10mm movement of the shaft). You will have to take the engine apart and reassemble the shift mechanism correctly so the shaft does not move and the shift actuator gears line up correctly. Use an on line parts service to look up a picture breakdown of the mechanism (you do not say what model you have)so you can figure out what is missing.

Volvo S40 :clutch pedal spring


The spring broke on my S40 clutch pedal too.
The old spring looks like a modified volvo part since none of the S40 clutch pedal springs at Volvo spares looks exactly the same as the one that broke. The one that broke looks similar to the replacement part that I bought, but one can clearly see that the old one was cut shorter at the other end and bent over to make it fit onto the clutch pedal mechanism. This is absolutely pathetic. I am taking it to Volvo to fix their rubbish themselves - and then they are still going to charge me R750 ($100) to replace a stupid spring! By the way, Volvo always wants the vehicle VIN number when buying spares because some of their cars (of the same year and model) use different parts - CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS! By the way, I am replacing the spring to pull the pedal all the way back - otherwise if I start the car in the mornings then the pedal is nearly on the floor when the car starts moving. If I pull the pedal back with my foot , then all is back to normal. I am scared that I may have no clutch after some time - so I will rather replace it.

Foot gear pedal moves but bike wont go into gear. pedal is reaaly lose and ideas? the pedal got caught on a gate an was ripped down which has caused the problem. pedal feels like it has been stripped on...


Wish I could see the bike but the following may help. Remove the shift pedal and look at the mounting hole. It should have groves in it which align with groves on the outside on the shifting shaft. If the groves on the shaft and / or the pedal are messed up, ( stripped ), then you need to decide what repair will work. Try re-mounting the pedal on the shaft and see if tightening the mount bolt extra tight will work. If not, you could pin the shift lever to the shaft. I don't know what bike this is but you probably have more serious problems than just a stripped shift lever or stripped shaft.......

...... A shift drum pin may have been sheared. The shift lever return spring and / or shift lever drum spring may have been broken or knocked out of place. The shift lever positioning C ring may have broken allowing the shift shaft to be out of place and not catching the shift pins. These are relatively minor problems to fix but the likelyhood is that you now have a bent shift fork......

...... A bent shift fork requires the engine be removed and torn down to about 75 pieces then reassembled with new shift fork(s). I have done this repair many times as a bike shop mechanic. Some special tools are needed and a good bit of knowhow. This is not a repair for the beginner. How about you take the bike to a dealer and ask them to just glance at the shifter and see what they think. It won't cost you to just ask for their ideas on the problem. Please post how you come out on this. I am curious what you find.
