All wheel drive, 5speed manual,3.5 engine. Problem: clutch went to the floor and there was liquid all over the pavement, had no problems prior to this and the peddle is still down all the way. jack

Your clutch has a concentric bearing situated inside the gearbox, oil all over means that the seal broke and when you pressed the clutch the liquid went into the gearbox, onto the disc and than out through small gaps that are always there in the gearbox. Solution is simple but time taking, you need to remove the gearbox, take out the cylinder, examine the seal, replace it, bleed it ( not like normal clutch only by releasing air via nipple), examine for any leaks and than put everything back in with a new clutch.

Why does my clutch feels like a 30lbs. leg lift?

I don't know the clutch operating system on Subaru vehicles as I don't see them in my workshop. We mostly work on off-road vehicles.
Nevertheless, the basics always remain the same.
1. If the clutch operating system is not hydraulic, but work with a cable, unhook the cable from the clutch fork and test the ease of movement. Clutch cables can sieze up due to rust and/or lack of lubrication.
2. If the clutch operating system is hydraulic, bleed the system. If it is easy to bleed, you can take for granted that the master cylinder and pedal box bushes are ok. Master cylinders can also become stiff due to a bent pushrod.
3. Undo the slave cylinder from the bellhousing and move the slave cylinder pushrod backwards and forwards with the aid of a pair of soft grip pliers. Some cloth on the pushrod will do just fine. The outcome of the test is rather obvious.
4. The cluch fork may be stiff in it's bushes. To find out, you will have to pull the clutch , usually by removing the gearbox, sometimes it is easier to remove the engine (an old Series II Land Rover with modified suspension and 3 Litre Ford V6 engine fitted is currently in my workshop and it is impossible to pull the gearbox with engine still in vehicle).
5. Your pressure plate may also be the culprit. To test, the gearbox must come out. Specifications on operating pressure is available from clutch manufacturers. A testing rig can be made up with a sturdy drillpress, a tension scale and a little math to compensate for leverage.
6. The clutch plate splines may be worn, or siezed up or even distorted. With the gearbox out, you should be able to move the clutch plate freely on the pilot shaft of the gearbox, with hardly any lateral movement (wobble).
7. I once found a bunched-up carpet behind the clutch pedal which caused a very hard clutch action.
8. This is definately not a full list of possible causes, but could point you in the right direction. Remember not to take anything for granted. The most obvious tend to be the hardest to spot.
Happy hunting.

Clutch gone

hi guys, here it is. it sounds drastic but really its easy as.
first go under the car and undo the 4 bolts (2 on each side) of the engine cross member.
then take the air box out and undo the plenum chamber (the really silver part that your air rushes through and has 4 spider legs) and put those to one side.
then undo fuel lines and electronics etc.
then from the back undo the engine--->gearbox bolts.
lift engine out (2 strong guys can do it) and then you have full access to the clutch and flywheel.
its easier then it sounds and dont be put off. just make sure that you unplug all sensors before lifting engine. Hope this helps
