Hi, I have a 94 mazda protege, cant wait to get rid of it :banghead: Anyways we have put in a new clutch (standard transmission) and have assembled everything however there is a slight problem. When pushing the pedal in it does not feel as if it has enough pressure (has some but not as it should). When I push the pedal in and try to shift, it is tough to get into gear like it binds and I cant get it into reverse...it just grinds. We've bled the system what else to do?
You sure you put the plate in facing the right way?
A common problem with inexperienced mechanics, but yes, the plate is on the correct way..we pumped the hell out of it too (hydraulic) still not going far enough to grab properly though
Bleed and bleed again. Done it on two Toyotas. Sorry but seriously it sounds like dirt or air in the lines...like you said common problem.
we bled the biatch for 4 hours non stop last night :cussing:
Is there any chance u contaminated the clutch before installing it? :ohcrap:
did u cheap out and got a clutch only? or did u buy the whole kit.. new bearing, plate, and clutch?
What I found to work best on hydo clutch systems is to use a vacuume bleeder. You might also want to check if the slave and master cylinder are not leaking or any thing.
Ijust bought a little 1992 mazda b2600 truck and replaced the clutch. my clutch is doing same thing. sometimes not catching or doing reverse. someone told me it needs adjusting. Any suggestions?
