Clutch Pedal not returning 3000GT

Hope you can help? The clutch pedal on my 3000GT does not return fully when depressed and sometimes just sits on the floor. If i lift it up with my foot the clutch does engage and the pedal does not drop back down? What may be the problem???

Many Thanks

Buy a seal kit from autozoe, wil cost you around 17 dollars. Remove clutch aster cylinder by firstly undoing the resevoir clamp and remove the reservoir to give you access to the hard hydraulic line and detach the line. Undo the two bolts holding the master cylinder to the firewall and then go inside the car and pull the cotter pin holding the end of the mastrecylinder plunger to the pedal (watch the washers and remember how they go back on). Remove the unit, and strip it down to replace the plunger and releif valve you get from the kit. Good Luck.

Master clutch cylinder needs repair/replace or rebuild. Mitsubishi does sell a seal and repair kit or you can look to buy a rebuilt master from a local store.

My clutch pedal stay close to the floor in my Acura CL. Doesnt return fully like it used too. Cant figure it out and I've replaced everythin


Bobbie, If your sure the system is bled properly,did you get the clutch fork back in correct position, was it the correct bearing etc., you may have to adjust the clutch pedal and / or if it has a mechanical return spring, change the spring, it could be weak.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides for clutch pedal adjustment., bleeding,etc.Good luck

When I depress my clutch the gears will not engage


If a hydraulic clutch, the fluid is low or has leaked, leading to air getting in the system. Thus the clutch will not disengage and let go of the gearbox.

If a cable clutch the cable has broken or gone right out of adjustment.

Also check the clutch pedal return spring, as these do break due to wear on the attachment hooks.

Yo I have a 1990 honda prelude si ,I have an issue with clutch pedal, my clutch pedal seems to stick when depressed it still has good pump pressure but I have to lift it up. Now I live in Idaho and it


The pedal return spring should be checked. Also the pedal bushings where pedal connects to the pedal support up under dash may be worn and not allowing free pedal movement. Work the pedal with your hand and watch the upper mounting of the pedal to see if you can see the problem. I would expect the bushings need replaced. You might try a little light oil where the clutch pedal attaches.

Clutch pedal when depressed will not come back up


If theres no damage to the clutch pedal assembly, (no bent fork arms or broken springs), then it sounds like the throw out bearing has gone out.

Clutch pedal fails to return fully after depressing.


If your truck has a hydraulic clutch it will have an extra reservoir, near the brake fluid reservoir, and the clutch side uses brake fluid also. Your problem I think, is that you are low on fluid. That can cause the problem you describe. Look for this extra reservoir and check it for low fluid, it may be dirty but should have full / low mark on the side.

Clutch pedal is hard to press.


this problem is caused when the clutch disk is worn out, it takes much more force to depress the clutch with a worn out disk, and yes a defective cable can cause this but that is less common.

Abnormal clutch pedal operation


You've replaced the master, the slave, now I would check to see if the throwout fork will move by hand. If you can move the fork by hand I would say that your pressure plate and or throwout bearing are worn out. First try to just gravity bleed the system. If that doesnt work, it may be time for a clutch, pressure plate, and bearing. The pressure plate spring pushes the pedal back up and depending on how many miles and driving habit those little arms on it break off and just wear out. I hope this helps you.
