    id adjust the cable all the way out and slowly work your way back in with it til you find the right setting

  • Ronnie Houston Jan 14, 2009

    if that didnt work id send it to a shop and have them deal with it. i know it can be expensive but if you cant figure it out it may be your only option.if it were my car it would already be back to the people that put in the clutch

Acting like it doesn't want to go into gear


Well i got a camry same engine I am getting my car checked this Friday because it feels loose on 2nd and 4th gears. I might end up with the same problem if I fail to get it repaired through payday advance. I'll let you know I checked my linkage and everything seems to be ok .. There is no looseness. But shifting into second gear you cant feel it ... I'll post it up when I manage to find out..Thanks for your patience.

Could you tell me where to put the transmission fluid in a 1988 honda accord dx. I can't seem too find it.


If there is a dip stick to show you the level of the fluid in the transmission, the transmission fluid is added through the dip stick tube. With the dip stick out, place a funnel in the tube opening and pour the fluid into the funnel.

How do you change the clutch and pressure plate?


Easily. Remove the gear box, the roller bearing is fitted to the box, so yoou dont have to worry. The clutch and plate is fixed to the engine held in with hex nuts, you'll need allan keys to remove them, remove the bolts and the clutch and pressure plate will fall away. Take the new one from the box, being carefull not to contaminate with grease or oil that is on your hands, fit the pressure plate into the clutch assembly and line up to the engine and loosly tighten up so the pressure plate will move with a little resistance. This is where the fun starts. Get your socket set handle and push it through the housing into the engine. Centralise the pressure plate as accurately as you can. Offer the gearbox slowly to the clutch and try to push it home. The pressureplate should have enought movement in it to move slightly to allow the gear box to fit. Once fitted, slowly and levelly remove the box, then tighten all of the clutch housing into place. Refit the box, tighten and go for a cup of coffee to congratulate yourself! The only other adjustments you have to make are to the clutch cable. Loosen the lock nut, loosen the adjuster bolt, tighten the adjuster bolt until the cable becomes taught, depress the clutch and you should feel the clutch release. Tighten the locknot and that's it. Hope all goes well, any problems let me know any problems let me know and I'll help. Regards, Dave.

2002 Civic Dx Clutch?


i have just replaced an 03 civic ex clutch and transmission bearings due to a customer being too harsh on it. It sounds like its got a little life left in it if you are easy on it. 

if there is adjustment in this model use the below walkthrough to adjust it.

adjust the clutch pedal, 

1. if you look up on the top of the clutch pedal, the first thing you should see if a clutch pedal position switch, and right behind it there is a locknut, looens the locknut. once you loosen it, back off on the pedal position switch or adjusting bolt untill it no longer touches the clutch pedal. 

2. now behind the clutch pedal, there is a pushrod. and on that pushrod, there is a locknut, loosen that locknut. Now turn the pushrod in or out to get the desired height and stroke at the clutch pedal. 

The freeplay is the amount of push on the clutch pedal to where is starts to have resistance from the top. I have usually been told it should be set at 1 1/2-2 inches of freeplay.

Once you set it, tighten the locknut on the pushrod. With the clutch pedal released, turn in the clutch pedal position switch untill it contacts the clutch pedal. then turn it an additional 3/4 to 1 turn. And tighten the locknut.

Now on top of the clutch pedal switch, there is a clutch interlock switch. Loosen the locknut on that switch. then press the clutch pedal to the floor.

release the clutch pedal 15-20 mm (0.59-0.79 in) from the fully pressed position, and hold it there. adjust the position of the clutch interlock switch so the engine will start with the clutch pedal in this position. then tighten the locknut on that switch.

Hope this helps

Bleeding clutch slave cylinder


if you loosten the slave bleeder screw and push in the clutch pedal fluid should come out if not make sure someone holds down the pedal and tighten the screw then pump the clutch a few times and hold the pedal and open the screw if no fluid repeat a couple of times if still no fluid you need either a new master cylinder or just rebuild it( normally cheaper) and if you rebuild it make sure you flush all the lines of debris
