1998 Honda Civic 195k miles, original clutch.
Original issue was that once the car was warmed up I couldn’t get it into 1st gear at all.
– Master/slave cylinders
– Transmission fluid
After replacing those shifting was much better/smoother.
But again once the car is warmed up/driven longer than 20 minutes there’s still “some” resistance going into gear as compared to when it’s cold. When cold it shifts perfectly.
Things I’ve noticed:
– If clutch pedal free play is adjusted to factory specs then it’s extremely hard getting into gear once warmed up. I have to decrease the freeplay a bit to get it to engage better, but leaves very little free play once warmed up (free play seems to decrease once car warms up. Normal?)
– Sometimes it sounds like the transmission isn’t fully releasing when the clutch is pressed for a lingering second or two.
Is this a clutch issue being it’s original with 195k miles or something else?
