Okay, just got new clutch disc, pressure plate, release bearing, and pilot bearing. Everything feels good except for the clutch pedal. It's sticky! Between shifts and when I release the clutch pedal, it would stay down momentarily before engauge. Not that obvious with low RPM, but very obvious when I was going onto a freeway on ramp WOT. Any idea? I'll give them a call tomorrow, but would like to know why. Thanks!
yea that's it. It takes about 5 mins at the most. get a 10mm wrench and a clear tube and a water bottle. put the wrench on the bleeder valve and hook the tube onto the nipple. Have someone pump the clutch a few times and hold it. Open the valve and then close it. Do this as many times needed and your done. Don't forget to fill the master cylinder. Pump the pedal slow
okay, just rebleed and clutch slave cylinder. Still feel a moment of hisitation upon release... We'll see how it drives at higher RPM. I am going to leave it at the shop overnight since I need to get my timing belt, drive belts, water pump, and termostat replaced anyway. Damn this sucks!
I also read somewhere that by bleeding the clutch might not do it and I might have to replace the slave cylinder. But how can it break after the clutch replacement? Good thing that this shop is pretty darn cheap, but also first time using them! We'll see...
actually, I got it fixed the next day. The warehouse gave them the wrong pressure plate!! They gave them the 2.2L pressuere plate instead of 2.5L. I am just happy that it's fixed. Oh well, since i had to bring it in for my timing, drive belts, water pump, and termostat replacement anyway, so no biggie...
BTW, this shop is the cheapest one I could find. I got new clutch disc, pressure plate, release bearing, pilot bearing, rebuilt flywheel, timing belt, AC/Alt belts, water pump, and thermostat all done for $1140 OTD. Pretty quick, and not too bad except for the wrong pressure plate thing.
