My clutch pedal all the way down and there is no pressure against my foot.

Car: Honda, Civic DX, 1992     -    Back to Fix-It    -    Honda Civic DX Repair Manuals

Q.I have a 92 honda civic hatchback dx that is a manual. Now, I can push my clutch pedal all the way down and there is no pressure against my foot. What is causing this and how do I fix it? By the way, this all started with it losing "pressure" against my foot little by little the last couple months. It would get so bad that I would have to pump the clutch pedal to get "pressure" from it. It runs good (doesn''t move now) but because of this I can''t move my stick anywhere? How do I fix my clutch pedal to get action out of it or pressure? Thank you for any help.

Answer Sounds like you have air in the hydraulic clutch system. You can bleed the system and see if that buys you some time. I've included bleed procedures and a diagram for you. But if this doesn't fix the problem then I would recommend replacing the clutch master and slave cylinder. Also before you start the bleed process check for visual leaks along the clutch hydraulic system
Attach a bleeder hose to bleeder screw located on slave cylinder, Suspend hose in a can of brake fluid and ensure that hydraulic reservoir is full of fluid.
Loosen bleeder screw, then slowly pump clutch pedal until no more bubbles appear at bleeder hose... >> login for more
