Re: Clutch 5KCSTQ
Thanks Alan -- you brought me to another set of clutching questions!
There isn't anything wrong with the clutch. Yes, the pedal is stiff, but
it has always been that way. When I asked the dealer to look and see
what's up with the shifter -- he said that I will need a new clutch soon
and gave me a quote on parts & labor.
here are my new questions:
1. How can a clutch like this just 'gradually' go? I thought that when
they go -- they GO.
2. What are those other parts you mentioned -- ' bad master or slave
or bad components.. throwout bearing, fingers broke in the clutch...'
and which of these components will I likely need given these
symptoms? Symptoms: slightly stiffer clutch pedal, slightly
3. How can I tell what parts I need?
In my 4KSQ when the master went -- depressing the clutch pedal didn't do
anything. The car had to literally be jammed into gear!
4. How do I bleed the hydraulic system -- and will it improve shifting?
What other ways can I improve shifting? It was very smooth before -- now
it's just 'smooth'
