My clutch won't engage 1997 Honda civic


Clutch plate and pressure plate seem to be too weak to pull the car. To test the clutch plate, park the car on flat surface. Pull the hand brake up, start the car, depress the foot brake pedal, depress the clutch pedal, put the car in 1st gear, press the gas pedal and leave the clutch pedal at once, while keeping the brake pedal depressed.
Follow one of the two following statements:
1. Engine does not shut down and remain start. (Clutch plate, pressure plate and clutch bearing defective - Replace all as a set)
2. Engine shuts down. (Clutch system is OK and does not require any repair).

Brake lights on 1989 honda civic went out...what is the problem? brake switch maybe? All fuses are fine


Check the brake light switch above the brake pedal with a volt meter, when the pedal is pushed you should have 12 volts in and out.

There's still air in the lines, just open the bleeder screws all of them and gravity bleed them , take the resovoir cap off and make sure you keep fluid in it . This may take some time but you will be happy when done. If you bleed them with a friend do one at a time pump the pedal, keep pressure on pedal and open the bleeder screw. when pedal goes to the floor repeat the process until its only fluid that exits the bleeder. Repeat this for the rest of the bleeders.

Brake pressure


Inspect the master cylinder. The pedal may not be connected correctly or there are bad seals that is causing you to loose pressure resulting in no resistance. In some cases you may see leaks.

Brake pedal wont hold when applied


After replacing the wheel cylinder, did you bleed the entire brake system? If not, do that first.
If you are still having problems with the brake pedal going to the floor after bleeding the system and there are no other leaks in the system, it is probably the brake master cylinder. Replace the master cylinder and follow the proper proceedures for that, including the bleeding of the new master cylinder.
