Question about Apple Subaru Outback 2008 08 Direct Ipod/iphone Adapter Text
Clutch reservoir was empty, we refilled it, it won't shift now. Bleed clutch, pedal is now weak and gears grind trying to shift
Tanya, your car is a manual and therefore has a gearbox and not an auto transmission, if it was going into gear before the reservoir became empty then it is highly unlikely that the gearbox is the issue.
The hydraulic system is a closed system so if the reservoir was empty then there has to be a fluid leak somewhere, most likely on the master cylinder or the slave cylinder.If the leak is bad no amount of bleeding will get the pressure up enough for the clutch to engage when u press the pedal.
You need to have a mechanic look at the vehicle, but if it is a hydraulic issue it certainly wont be overly expensive to repair.
Hope I have helped.
