SOURCE: Heavy clutch pedal operation

Unfortunately, this model uses a clutch cable. The internal shaft (in the bell housing) eventually suffers from galling and crud accumulation. This puts enormous strain on the cable which may even break. The cable is self-adjusting but occasionally may need a little manual help. If you undo the nut (far lower right side of the box in American cars) and the clips holding the fuse box to the firewall you can lift it aside and see the cable where it exits the firewall. Grasp the large spring that surrounds the sheath and gently tug upwards. You should hear a click or two or three as the adjusting ratcheting mechanism operates. If you do not, tug a little more forcefully, but do not **** the cable as you can cause the ratcheting mechanism to fail. You will now have less free play of the clutch pedal and easier operation of the clutch. Order a new cable now and carry it in your trunk. You will be needing it soon.

SOURCE: New clutch cable made gear change much worse.

Hi,

Had a recent similar problem. Fortunately, my replacement cable is adjustable. As the new cable stretched, I had to take a crowbar to the the throwout lever next to the battery and lever it back while pulling off the cable (towards the battery). I then lifted the fuse box (look out for the 10mm plastic nut that holds it in on the side by the driver's side fender) on the drivers side right in front of the windshield to reach down and pull the cable up enough to reach the adjustor. When it is high enough, release the locknut and turn the adjusting nut upwards about 4 turns (both nuts on my cable were 17mm and a "stubby" is handy but not necessary. Grab the end by the battery and, making sure it is seated on the groove on the transmission, pry the lever again with the crowbar and reseat tg
he cable end in the lever. I have had to readjust the cable twice more before it settled in a comfortableplace, but once you get the hang of it, it only takes about 10 minutes.

Hope this is helpful.

SOURCE: just bought it to dat,2004

The manual transmission doesn't have one - just drain and fill plugs.The disptick is accessiable from underneath on the automatic. It is on the front of the box and only small and green, held in place with a 12mm bolt. Hope this helps, James Booth. It sounds to me like your clutch is going out.

My van shifts fine at low speed but when I go fast the rpm go above 4000 before shifting


the farther you press the gas pedal the higher the rpm will go before shifting. if you floor it it will redline before shifting. if it isn't shifting at the right time it could be the line pressure needs to be adjusted

My son's car is a Honda Accord 91 and he said that when he drives it as of late the car changes gears to high or low. Sometimes it drives well then the gears shift to slow. What problem can this be??


this is one of the first "fuzzy logic" boxes fitted by honda,
the gearchange pattern will change dependant on the driving style of the driver.
first check the trans level.then without touching the gas put car in gear and let it run to max speed(about 30/35mph).stop.
then put 1/3rd gas pedal down (keep it still)and let car go to max speed,stop.then floor the gas to a safe top speed for the test road...then stop.you have just reset the change mode.
if you drive the car with only 1/3rd gas the car will change lowdown the rev range(boring) and save you a fortune in gas...
if son drives different to you the car will know who is driving and change accordingly(takes about 30 miles to react)
it is NOT in any handbook.

Clutch pedal sticks to the floor; the brake reservoir was low


I believe your pressure plate is broken and at a minimum will have to be replaced along with the clutch disk.

5 speed manual transmission. reverse will not engage


I had the same problem. A spring in the gear change selector had broken making it impossible to get into reverse and very difficult into first to fifth. Simple repair. Might be similar to your problem

Wont shift to overdrive on hwy unless I let off the gas alot


I'm a big chevy fan and the reason it wont shift is because of the big tires.What happens when you put big tires on it and still have the same gear ratio the tires slow down the speed alot.There for making the trans seem its still going slower.The only real adjustments you can do here are first adjust the kick down cable if it has one,Next would be change the gear ratio to compinsate for the big tires.But if you have the elctronic trans theres really nothing you can do to adjust the kick down.But if it does this cable controls how the truck shifts on where the gas pedal is.To adjust the kick down cable you need to look at the cables that go up to the throttle likage.the cable thats on the bottom is the one you need.Next behind the bracket that holds the cable is a metal tab its actually in the cable.Push that tab in and the center part of the cable which looks like a con push that all the way in release the tab.Next jump in the truck and press the gas pedal to the floor now its adjusted.Thats all you can do..Hope this helps you and have a great day..
