1995 honda civic clutch

The other day when I started my civic, the clutch engaged really low in the pedal range-- as in just off the floor. I could barely get the car in gear. ANd the pedal didn't want to travel back up as quickly as usual. I made it home, parked in the garage and turned the car off. WHen I went to restart it, it wouldn't turn over (I think the car ''thought'' it was in gear). I, in my magisterial wisdom, jumped to the conclusion that the slave cylinder was shot- so I bought a new one and put it in. After bleeding the system, the pedal travel feels normal, but the car still won't start. I was going to replace the master cylinder as well, but no one in town had one. So, is this a cylinder problem or is it the clutch? (In case it matter, I live in Anchorage- where it is fairly cold.)

    I have the same problem in my 92 civic but I have a crx engine and tranny in mine so I'm wondering if it has a clutch cable or if it's hydraulic? I don't know how to tell.

It is not a clutch slave cyl. or clutch master cyl. problem, first check battery and and cables to rule them out if good check to see with test lamp if you have power to start switch at pedal cluster, [key in crank position] If you have power then check with test lamp, [key in crank position and clutch in] for power at starter solonoid, if no power replace switch at clutch pedal if you have power to the starter then you have a bad starter.

How do i adjust a manual clutch to a 2003 honda civic ex coupe?

The only adjustment is free play at the pedal, the clutch release is hydraulic and is self adjusting. If the engagement is getting low on the pedal, it usually means the clutch is wearing out. It is possible that the hydraulics are leaking, inspect the slave, master and hose.

Clutch would not engage

First you must bleed the clutch fluid by pumping clutch pedal and holding down to the floor while a helper opens and closes the bleeder On the slave cylinder
If still no operation after that you probably need a clutch assy

My clutch won't engage 1997 Honda civic

Clutch plate and pressure plate seem to be too weak to pull the car. To test the clutch plate, park the car on flat surface. Pull the hand brake up, start the car, depress the foot brake pedal, depress the clutch pedal, put the car in 1st gear, press the gas pedal and leave the clutch pedal at once, while keeping the brake pedal depressed.
Follow one of the two following statements:
1. Engine does not shut down and remain start. (Clutch plate, pressure plate and clutch bearing defective - Replace all as a set)
2. Engine shuts down. (Clutch system is OK and does not require any repair).

My 89 honda civic will only start ny tow some times after towing it will start by key but then u have to tow start it again any ideas???

Could be a bad starter solenoid. Are you pushing the clutch in when you are trying to start the car. All newer cars have a feature that you cannot start them unless clutch pedal is being pressed.

Where is the clutch switch located on a 1995 honda civic

There are two switches. The one you probably want is the starter/clutch interlock switch which is located at near the upper end of the clutch pedal. This switch engages your clutch. If engine wont turn over with clutch depressed and key to start, loosen the locknut and turn the cylinder clockwise to move the switch in closer to the clutch, try again. If problem persists, check ignition switch wiring for shorts/bad connections; there is no voltage from the starter relay to the switch, or no continuity between the two terminals on the switch, or the switch is bad. Hope this helps you out

Clutch problem!!!! maybe wire? need help please!!!

Check to see if this is a hydraulic system, it sounds like it is low on fluid. If it is a cable then it has come adrift somwhere follow the cable from the bulkhead to the transmission, it will be obvious. If it is hydraulic top it up with dot 4 brake fluid and pump the pedal several times if it gets better you have a leak, take it to the repair shop and get them to verify where it is.
