jhectormartin: thaNKS FOR THE Video, but , i have a 91 acura legend and i cannot find the slave cylinder

virasack rattanachan: HELP!!!!!!! hi mate i got the same problem as this video but the only different is i still got oil in the bottle! left the car overnight now the pedle is flat to the floor! i still got a little pressure but can not change gears

Tony Duran: Need HELP!!! I have had my 92 Honda Civic clutch replaced because the car would not go into gear. We thought the problem was resolved till we drove it about two blocks from home and the car would not go into gear again. The mechanic showed me the clutch for and said it appeared worn last time the clutched was replaced it wasn't lubed correctly. So we had him replace the clutch fork. Thought all was good till we drove it around the block same issue. Clutch fork popped off and the clutch can be pushed but the car wont go into gear. Someone advised we needed new trany and so we spent money on new transmission. Drove the car a mile and then on the way home, same issue clutch for came off again and the car wont go into gear. Any advise would be welcome. I've invested so much on this issue and both the mechanic and I are at a loss of how to resolve this issue. Please HELP!!! Do I part out the new clutch, fork, and transmission or it is just something small we are missing. Thanks :) Sally

moccina: You can also "gravity bleed" the slave. I replaced it on my RSX about a year ago, babied the car for that time and just now did the clutch. Big friggen job... had to drop the subframe to get the tranny out but in the end so worth it.

steven thoreson: Idk if this was covered but could use the advise. 88 honda prelude 2.0. Clutch doesnt grab until almost all the way out, last 3 inches or so. And when Im driving and give it "more then normal" throttle the clutch slips. Bad clutch or air in the lines? 

Cornell Tootoosis: Thanks for posting. I have a standard and have no compression, I'll try this

Caleb Rickett: What do you do when you have bleeded out and changed slave drive and master cylinder, and clutch has problems with first gear?

Peter Mu: Hey thanks for this video. Very helpful. Most videos are not clear at all. The guy doing it knows what going on but if someone trying to learn and can't see a thing, it won't help. So great job. I have a 07 Wrangler Rubicon that the clutch paddle is soft now, can't shift. But my brake fluid reservoir is not low...Do you think its still the slave cylinder having a leak?

DropthaBomb1: I have a 00 eclipse GS 2.4 5 speed. I changed the master and slave out. pedal gets pressure to it but not like it used too. When i go to to engage reverse or 1st to move from neutral it wont let me you hear a grinding noise. my cousin said that im not getting enough pedal to the slave from the master. before my master n slave replacement i could never get pressure to the clutch but now im able to just not able to put into gear unless i force it and i dont want to do that. any tips? ive bled the system and no air or leaks. seems like the piston in the slave isn't getting compressed all the way. Thanks, John

Marco Zepeda: This was really great, really helped me understand more about the clutch, saved me miney, and easy job to do. Thanks for taking your time as well to make this video for people like me haha.

ElleWarr: Well "obviously" Willie B...

bronkylane: My 06 civic is slow in first gear and sometimes gets stuck on first and I have to release the clutch a bit to get it on gear. What could it be? ???????????

Harvey Light: Good video! If you had an extra set of hands you could have someone point a flashlight at those locations in the engine. At 5 minutes in it looks like you do use a light, so thank you.

mrtruserv: Thanks, Great Video.

Lugger Dog: Very helpful and I will have to be able to make sure that I can share your knowledge and look like a pro. .thanks

Jorge Schultze: I have a susuki grand vitara and I had to change four (4) clucht discks in less tan 25.000 miles of use, seems that there is a factory design problem 

Rich Hernandez: Hey I need help.i have a 95' Honda Civic EX coupe. Well my car is turn off and I can put it into any gear. But when turn the car on, it won't let me shift to any gear. It doesn't make any sound, it just doesn't shift.

Andy Burnett: nice vid!

Matt Ivey: 06 ford fusion leaking brake fluid out of the starter.. master cylinder is right below the starter you press the clutch peddle fluid comes out..of starter... what could it be ???? 

Earl Allen Boek: Thanks guys, gives me a starting point, As a kid I did clutch repairs myself, usually had parts left over, so it does not hurt to get a little refresher. Hope the truck does not need a clutch at abut 55,000 2010 Nissan Frontier PU, don't think it should yet.

Patrick Henry: Great info. My Toyota Corolla S cutch is starting to slip - even when I release the clutch, she's still going into gear. But 133,000 miles on one clutch is pretty good. Thanks for the video.

nallers: Thank you so much for this video. It saved me a lot of money. See, I am not into cars at all and always takes it in for other people to have a look at my problem and pay them plenty to do sometimes stupid things. My car was having exactly the same issue as on your video and by following your video step by step, I could help myself and my car is back on the road. I only spend a few bucks to buy brake fluid. Thanks again. You are the best .

Mark Redka: This video was great. It helped me diagnose my son's clutch pedal problem. Thanks.

nathan hinkle: awesome video short, simple and very helpful

Carl Arnold: Excellent fellas...thanks

Kandise Bammer: great help video thanks 

Alans6563: Hi, any ideas what could cause a clutch to creak and go slighty sticky when hot? When I say sticky I mean as in you press the pedal and instead of being light and smooth it feels like it's a little heavier to press and creaks as well as you reach the bottom of the pedal stroke. This is only when you get the car fully hot though. It's fine when cold.

Tony Murphy: Need help on 92 Honda accord ex.... Please

Sal J: I have a 1990 Toyota Corolla And so far the master cylinder doesn't show linking from my eyes and the slave cylinder isn't linking, I have brake fluid in the container but it looks dirty and its full. The problem with the car is you need to puch the pedal down on the floor and the gears dont go in and the reverse grinds? What is the problem and what is the solution? Please help thanks.

jett420420: obviously...lol great vid :)

Mark Washman: need

shiro4000: So ive done everything you said but the only thing is that i lose complete pressure from the clutch pedal... ive done it before on my other hondas but idk what the problem could be if you could get to me asap

victor mc: its very good video thankyou 

Robert Morodan: Hi, i own a 92 hond prelude and my problem is that when i want to leave and whant to put in first gear it enters very hard on cold engine. But after that its fine. It remains only my second problem and that is the 3rd gear witch does not enter smootly when i downgrade. The rpm has to be right to enter. Is this a adjusment problem or? Thano you

williamandgrace4ever: I have a 1996 Ford Ranger Super Cab 4.0L. The clutch wasnt releasing, and i replaced the clutch assebly, and master cylinder, and bled the system but i still have no clutch. what do you think is the problem?

Betty Johnson: I have a dodge ram 1500 5.2 1999 the cluch is sliping a little when I shift is there a way to ajust it .looks like the fluid level is ok. Help

Jhony Lopez: I think this video will help me a lot with my MG midget, it gas some clutch problems and it will help me so much.... Thanks guys for doing this...

Phillip Smith: Great video!

autohowtovideos: @mtndl222 if the pedal is sittin glow and its slipping a little i would say first def do a full bleed like we did in the video and be careful to inspect both the slave and master cyl. for any leaks that could be your problem. if its starting to pop out of gear or slip badly could be the clutch but i would do a full hydraulic checkup first.

Hussam Alajati: Great video ... simple and easy tutorial.

ryechidom: i have a 96 saturn, and it is a 5 spd. it is hard as heck to get into gear, any idea of what it could be?

XBobMarleyX13: @townkevin59 it sounds like they didn't bleed the clutch right, my 300zx is similar, it would bring into gear unless I pumped the pedal but I bled the clutch line a few times and it got better

Luke Oleksak: Are you pushing the clutch or brake pedal for bleeding?

v2rocketjk: My clutch is making a grinding sound when I push it in and out. It's an 87 Nissan

EMT: Thanks! They sometimes skip corners and take the easy way. If they ever did that, I suggest you consult with a paralegal or lawyer. This way they won't be able to cheat you.
