Question about Mitsubishi Eclipse
I recently purchased a 2003 mitsubishi eclipse with 75000 miles on it. Today all of a sudden on the way home from work I noticed that it was difficult to change gears. I let the car run in my driveway and noticed that the problem was intermittent and the car would shift fine for awhile and then the problem would reoccur. There was plenty of resistance on the clutch pedal also. Then I noticed a leak the I assume is hydraulic clutch fluid coming from the front underside of the engine block and it appears to be coming from around the transmission area. The clutch fluid reservoir was completely empty so I siphoned some brake fluid from my brake fluid reservoir to refill it. After doing so the car will no longer shift at all while the car is running. Also I have lost all resistance on the clutch pedal since adding the brake fluid. I tried pumping the clutch pedal to help circulate the clutch fluid but with no results. The issue was relatively minor until I added brake fluid to the clutch fluid reservoir and since doing so it is virtually undrivable. I am not a "car guy" and would gratefully welcome any advice- Steve

SOURCE: Clutch petal had no resistance
did you bleed the clutch? there's a bleeder nut/bolt on the slave cylinder. have someone pump up the cluth and hold, then loosen nut/bolt and air will come out. repeat process untill pedal has resistance and good fluid coming from bleeder. make sure to top of fluid during process, if you run it dry, you have to repeat the whole process again. note, i'm assuming this due to my experince on other vechiles, never worked on an isuzu before. but had the same issue on others.

If the seals around the shafts of master and slave are tight, they may be concealing a leak with fluid bypassing the piston seals internal to the two assemblies. Either your master or slave cylinders need to be replaced ot have new seals installed. Once you find the culprit and have installed a replacement, you will have to bleed the lines to evacuate air trap in the lines.

I had a similar issue when i replaced the brakes on mine. Turned out that I had a bad caliper. Onc e i replaced that, it was fine. Also, when the car is not running, your brakes will "pump up" because the master cyl. is not operating

check the fluid level of the clutch resovoir, try bleeding the system out and look for visable leaks.the line you need to look for should go into the side of the transmission, and lead up to a small round resovoir.
