Clutch

I have a 95 rio grande 2.5l 5 speed. I have noticed that after driving awhile I have to push the clutch pedal to the floor to totaly disengage the clutch and let the pedal up about 2-3 inches from the floor for it to engage. When I have it to the floor I can cycle through all gears encluding reverse with no problems or grinding. The clutch does not slip and it shifts fine when driving. I can put it in gear while the engine is off and slowly push the clutch in and it will start to roll when the pedal is pressed about 1/2 down and stop rolling at about 1/2 way up. Is this normal??? I checked my clutch master cylinder ( little one behind the power brake drum driverside engine compartment) and there is plenty of fluid and there is no leaks comming out of the inspection cover.


Thank you

Re: Clutch

sounds normal to me. pushing the clutch in disengages it and releasing the pedal engages it. am i missing something?

Re: Clutch

Sorry I should have been more clear!! It seems like I have to push the pedal all the way to the floor to get the clutch to disengage. It almost feels like I have to REALLY push it down to do this. When I am driving it shifts fine. Now when the car has been sitting awhile I went out with it not running and slowly pushed to clutch in and it started to roll at about 1/2 in and stop rolling about 1/2 out. It almost seems like it starts doing this after driving awhile and only when I am sitting at a stop.

Re: Clutch

so the pedal pressure increases while driving? or the engagement point moves?

its normal to have partial disengagement at 1/2 pedal travel to cause it to roll when parked, and to have full disengagement at the floor. im still confused.

Re: Clutch

I feels like the engage and disengage point moves closer to the floor as I drive it more. I cant make sense of it. It feels like I have to push right down to the floor before it disengages the clutch.

Re: Clutch

1. Is there any "Felx" in the firewall as the clutch is depressed?

Re: Clutch

Not sure on the flex but I will check. How do you bleed the master slave on the clutch. I heard that after 1994 they came all factory filled and you could not bleed them?? Maybe Im wrong.
