Question about Chevrolet Camaro
The situation in which grinding can be heard is when placing the transmission into reverse from a stopped position, e.g., when leaving a parking space. Grinding occurs here in part because reverse is often not a synchromesh gear. If one does not leave the transmission in reverse or a forward gear when parked, it is likely that you will hear grinding in the transmission when shifting into reverse no matter how far the clutch pedal is held in when shifting. To avoid grinding in reverse, one must "clear the gate": first place the gear shift into a forward gear, then shift into reverse. This will eliminate any grinding that is heard. It works because all gears have the same speed when the car is stopped. ---------------
On 5-speed synchromesh transmissions, the gates will lock out a shift from 5th gear down into reverse as a safety feature; therefore, place the shifter into another forward gear before shifting into reverse. Some old cars have synchromesh on the upper gears but not on 1st, so this procedure should be used every time they are started from a stop.-----------
you could have an air pocket in the line that goes to the slave cylinder.And yes 3/8 to 1/2 is ok.But check both as well as slave and master cylinder.
The real problem is more likely to be bent or broken release fingers on the pressure plate. If the fingers are bent, you can't release the clutch fully. If that is the problem you may as well replace the clutch disc, throw-out bearing and pilot bearing.
