Question about 1995 Honda Civic
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.)
We had the same problem with our 96, come to find out someone had installed an after market securtity, we found the switch under the hood release it was very small but that did the trick, just look for something that looks like it doesnt belong

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.
