Hey all I'm kinda dumb when it comes to transmissions but I put the clutch in to start the car and it stays to the floor.look under the car since it's Hydrolic gotta be a leak right? nothing.............. :confused: lotsa play on the clutch fork but it still goes to the floor any ideas what this could be? was driving fine the other day, heard some vibrating at around 6k rpms been like that since the engine swap only have like 100 mile son it so it sits :(

happend to my prelude...i was like wtf
the master and slave clutch cylinder had to be replaced, both were bad

even if both are not bad it's still a good idea to do them both if you can afford it.

Pull the boot on your slave cylinder, it will most likely be filled with fluid. Also, check under the dash for fluid on or around your master cylinder adjustment rod.

Yup, sounds like the slave. When my master went it just leaked all over so I don't think that's it. If you have the time might as well do both though.

yea my step dad had the same problem with his jeep. It was the fork. Change that and the cylinder just incase.

what about the noise around 6k rpms?
also how hard would it be if it's the clutch fork gotta drop the tranny?
:mad:

Yes, the tranny would need to be dropped to replace the clutch fork. It can be done in a saturday if youve never done one before. Not hard just a little time consuming.

You still don't know if it is definitely your clutch fork. Check the easy things (master and slave) first and then drop your tranny. Being that your engine is only 100 miles old that vibration at 6k rpm could be anything. Let us know with any updates.

*Update* so I rebleed the clutch, seems like problem solved. but my question is how did I get air in the line? it still seems like its soft when it gets to the floor but when it first engages it's really springy :confused:

but it works so....who knows....Cars! man do I hate em :mad:

Pedal assembly...Maybe the bleeder nipple was loose and it was sucking in some air and upon tightening it the air stoped aflowin!!!

didnt read the replies, clutch fork broke. Take off that black boot. 20 bucks says you can pull it out. If im wrong. Master cyl leaking. If you do have to replace the clutch fork took me 7 hours to do mine by myself for the first time, thats with lunch lol

The clutch master cylinder will leak on the inside of the car, so check your driver's side floor board if you think it is leaking. A master cylinder rebuild kit is $30 from a Mitsubishi dealer. I rebuilt my 2g's master cylinder over 26k miles ago and have not had it leak since.

A brand new one is $75ish from JNZ if that offers you a little more piece of mind.
