This is usually caused by air entering the hydraulic clutch system after the fluid in the reservoir has leaked out of the slave cylinder. Check the fluid level and if low check the slave on the transmission for a leak. If leaking, replace the slave cylinder aqnd bleed the system. If this is not the problem or you have questions/need instructions, please let me know.

    i am having the same problem in my 2000 eclipse. could you please tell me how to bleed the system?

    To bleed, have an assistant operate the pedal for you while you open and close the bleeder on the slave. Use a catch pan or clear tube and catch bottle on the end of the bleeder. Loosen the bleeder and have your assistant push the pedal down and hold it down until you close the bleeder. The pedal may need to be lifted. Loosen the bleeder again and repeat the process until no air comes out in the fluid. Make sure to keep the reservoir full during this process.
    Check the clutch for proper operation with the engine running. If the pedal is too soft, back bleed the slave as follows:
    Grasp the end of the plunger using a vice grip. Open the bleeder, leaving your wrench attached. Force the plunger into the slave, and close the bleeder while holding the plunger in. Repeat this process until no bubbles come out of the slave.

Why wont my 1995 eclipse rs auto shift from 2nd

You used a code to replace a part

Codes only indicate a system with a fault

That system then has to be component tested

I assume you did no testing

Sounds like the clutch assy is about worn out. Most hydraulic clutches are self adjusting so when the clutch disc lining wears thin it takes more pedal travel to engage.

Im having trouble shifting gears in my 2001 mitsubishi . had the gear box fluids checked and its fine. ******* down gear is hardest. it acts as if it wants to stick.

Get your clutch checked, if you don't have a good functional clutch it makes shifting very hard and in long term will damage your gearbox.
