Re: clutch peddle will not come off of floor
I think your first order of business is to determine where your clutch fluid went. If it is the master cylinder, it should be evident with a visual inspection under the hood. If it is the slave cylinder, you may have to crawl under the vehicle to inspect for evidence of leakage. Either way, the leaked fluid should be cleaned up right away as it corrosive and can damage other parts, especially rubber hoses, etc.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

When the problem acures again.Have someone step on the peddle,then release does the clutch leaver in the bell housing go back allso,if not loosen the line at slave cylinder,does it go back now,if not might be binding at trans input shaft.if it does release tighten line again pump peddle 3 times and go after master cylinder line.with peddle released does fluid squrt out.has the fluid ever been changed.like all fluids they absorb moisture that freezes or creates dirt from rust and binds the system.i would flush with DOT3 or DOT4 BRAKE FLUID.
Any reputable shop can perform this mileage service,It will not need any thing special at this service as long as you have been performing the regular previous mileage services. When it comes to the 90,000 k service their are a few extra things I would have done example ( brake fluid flush ) ( trans fluid flush ) these I would have performed at the Honda dealer
hi normally 49,000 miles is not allot , its about 60,000 that you do this, but if it is dark and dirty it sounds like it does need a drain and new oil, when you drain it, have a magnet handy and hold it under the oil as it drains and see if there are shards of metal if it is very dirty you may be having internal problems.....hope this helps
Yes it needs to be replaced its already time for that.
IntervalsHere is what I recommend for maintenance intervals. There are exceptions to all of these including severe duty, which most northern cars fall into.
Change Transmission filter-30,000 miles, 90,000 and 150,000 miles and fluid at 60,000, 120,000 and 180,000 miles.
Change oil every 3,000 miles or 3 months, unless you use Mobil One, in which case 6 months/6,000 miles.
Chassis lube every 3,000 miles, assuming there are fittings.
Spark plugs: Conventional plugs: 30,000 miles, Double platinum: every 50,000 miles (100,000 mile plugs are best to be changed well before that, although some can reach it).
Fuel filter: 35,000-40,000 miles. Unless it is in the tank. But if the tank is ever dropped, do it then
Ignition cap, rotor, wires: 60,000-80,000 miles. (if it has them).
Timing Belt, if applicible: 60,000 miles on many but check with gates or dayco or the manual or dealer, as many different intervals are now present.
Coolant flush -- green: 2 years/24,000 miles.
Coolant flush -- dex-cool or long life: 5 years/50,000 miles.
Tire rotation: 5,000-8,000 miles.
Alignment: 15,000-20,000 miles., unless tire wear is not a problem and car goes straight.
Brake fluid flush and power steering fluid flush: 2 years or when dirty or discolored.
Air filter, pcv valve and cabin air filter: as needed.
Professional fuel injection service: 40,000 miles.
Throttle bore plate cleaning: 20,000 miles.
Air induction service: 20,000 miles.
MaintenanceEvery auto manufacturer lists their required maintenance on their web sites and in the owners manual the maintenance service intervals vary between manufacturers.
Your car is a moving piece of machinery, it needs maintenance, if you want this car to last you need to service it. Do not just do the minimum recommended services that are listed in you service manual. Make sure you service your cooling system which prolongs the life of the radiator and water pump, and the power steering system, which will extend the life of your cars power-seeking pump and gear box or rack. It will cost you much more than you want to spend when you fail to maintain your car and larger problems surface. I recommend that you review your owners manual and get acquainted with a reputable auto repair facility. A good relationship with you car and your car's mechanic will benefit you in the long run, providing you with a long lasting and safe car.
At 30,000 miles you should also service your cooling system, transmission, fuel system and power steering; this should be repeated every 30k miles. I recommend flushes of the later mentioned items to prolong these systems' life span.
the trans should be serviced every 60,000, this is a recommendation for all automatic transmissions, also the cooling system hoses should be changed as well as a cooling system flush, the rest of the checks are fluid level checks, the trune up is due at 100,000 miles, the timing belt is due at 105,000 miles
Is your driving primarily city?
You may want to check to see if the clutch master cylinder reservoir is full. If it is not full you may have a leak or the clutch friction disk is worn. If the fluid is at the correct level, you might consider having the fluid flushed and refilled.
Do you mean that stays to the floor because the clutch peddle has to reach the floor. If that is what you mean then probably you need a knew clutch or if it is hydraulic maybe it reflling and dicomression.
check the owners manual for recommendations, but in most cases this is about the miles (60,000 mile service) the cooling system should have the hoses changed and the coolant condition tested and flushed as ness, also the transmission should have a fluid and filter change, the fuel filter should be replaced (every 30,000 miles) and a front end aligned if tires are not wearing evenly.
You should have had the transmission fluid changed at 30, 000 miles, and you should have the transmission flushed at 60,000.
Change the timing belt at 90, 000 miles (if you have a V-6).
Change the air filter every 15,000 miles.
Check the spark plug condition at 60,000, and change the coolant at 60,000.
