wellz here my story.
i was driving home one day when all sudden
it get really hard for me to change gear. REALLY hard!
it take me like 2 to 3 sec to put the gear in.
then i finally got it home. Wen online.
RESEARCH. and all the post seem to say go check ur fluids.
so I did. at 12:00am with my flashlight(BECAUSE I LUV MY BABY).
all the fluid was fine, so i did more research!. And every direction
pointed me to the master cylinder. Since i'm an idiot and i dun trust myself
i went to honda paid them $45 to check my baby!
they said the master cylinder was leaking blah balh.. and some other bull crap..

they wanted to charge me $450 to do the master and the slave.
And i was Like F$#K no!

wen to my friend's shop got the master and slave for $50
I just finish the master cylinder and here where the PROBLEM start
There no pressure in my clutch wen i press it. It goes down all the way
to the floor. And since i got a auto start on my car. i can start it but
i can't change gear. Its like my clutch isn't engaging. so dis is where i
NEED you guyz to help me out!!

I think its because i didn't bleed my clutch yet. But couldn't that be the reason?
i'm gonna go buy the speedbleeder tomoro but i dont' noe how to use it!!!
HELP ME OUT!!!!
if i can get my car to work again
i'll treat u guyz out to a bowl of pho if you live in the LA area.

I have a relationship...a love hate relationship....with my car....I love her.....but she fuggin hates me.

There are times when I wake up and look out the window to make sure she's still there....then i go out and pet her....afterall she is my BABY!!!!

You bleed it from the slave cyclinder. There is a I believe an 8mm or 9mm bolt on the front it of. You turn it to the left to open and right to close it. You're going to need someone to pump your pedel a few times, then hold it, and open the bleeder then close. Do this a few times until the pedal stiffins up.

the thing is i can't even pump it if i press it.
it juz go straight down!
You're going to have to use your hand first to start pumping the air out, after awhile, you're start to feel pressure

You also need to make sure you didn't tighten the bolt that bolts onto the pedal too tight. Make sure that it comes all the way back to its position. I made this mistake the first time I changed out my master cyclinder.

Hard to shift

I have had this same problem with my lude since i bought it. F22 5 speed. Master cylinder finally broke, i replaced the slave and the master, vacuum bled the lines and its still hard to shift, I dont know why I am gonna replace the transmission fluid to see if it helps.

ok heres how to bleed it:

1 pump clutch several times (pull it up with hand if it goes to the floor)
2 open bleed valve on slave cylinder and air and fluid will come out
3 repeat until there is no air coming out when you open the bleeder valve, just a steady stream of fluid

the fluid in the master cylinder will go down, dont let it get empty or you will have a bubble in the line and will have to start over...i think this is why your car wont shift right

I appreciate the input but it has been like that since about a month after i bought it, the clutch doesnt slip at all just hard to shift into gear. even before my master cylinder and slave got replaced. But I will check it if you guys think that could be it

Hi

Wellz u guyz my nitemare is over.
The problem was a piece of my clutch broke
and was spinning around in there.
Which make it hard for me to shift.
So i bought new clutch and flywheel.
and now its much much smoother. almost feel like a new car.

The moral of the story is:
HONDA LIE TO ME. they told me it was the MC and SC.
Which it wasn't. And i spend $40 on an inspection for NOTHING!
BOUGHT the MC and SC for $50 for NOTHING!.

And even if you take really good care of your car. SHIT STILL HAPPENS!!
