94 accord not enough pressure in the clutch


Recommended Posts

So a month ago my transmission got stuck in 5th gear so i had to replace the tranny. My clutch line was working fine before and after i put everything back together it just would not get any pressure thru the lines I bleed it everyday for a week straight! My pressure plate and clutch are 3 months old as are still in great condition! This past month I've switch out the slave and master cylinders 3x! So theyre brand new. I replaced the clutch joint, damper, and hose on the line and still got nothing. I then replace the original line with a shell braided line and new master and slave cylinder. Now I get some pressure but not enough to engage gears. When the car is off I can put it in every gear just fine but when the car is on it won't go into any gear! I tried starting it in 1st gear and it just starts to roll n pushing the clutch in doesn't make a difference it still rolls! I tried driving in and you half to slam the pedal ALL THE WAY TO THE FLOOR AND FORCE IT INTO each GEAR! But if you stop while in neutral it won't go back into ear only if you driving. Any thing else you can think of for me to do?

You should be able to run through the gears with the engine off anyway so that is a non-issue. I would not have replaced the hydraulic line with a braided line so that could be a potential issue. Otherwise you should have checked pressure out of the master and then checked the slave. Honestly, if you are using, or as it sounds have been using, aftermarket parts then the likelyhood of a bad part is greater and if you did not originally check in the car by the interior fire wall for fluid leak (i.e. master is bad) then it seems you are chasing your tail. The system is a simple hyraulic system so don't over think it... Although, if the incorrect plate or throw bearing (both thickness) was installed then that could potentially be an issue, but unlikely the cause.


Check the interior fire wall by the master cylinder post for fluid leak and check the slave cylinder under the boot for fluid. If fluid then bad OR it could be residual fluid for a previous problem since you have been replacing parts and again chasing your tail.


Not being rude just truthfull. Good luck.
