Hi all -
My 02 Elantra GT has around 75000 miles on it, and since June I have
been driving around 400 miles a week to my new job (80 miles
round-trip, mostly 2-lane highway). Stock except for K&N air filter,
all maintenance up-to-date (water pump, timing belt changed per specs,
new tires and battery 2 weeks ago).
Lately, I've noticed a bit more difficulty shifting into various gears,
and I have also noticed what some would call 'stiction' in the clutch
pedal (kind of a resistance like you would get on the head shocks of a
motorcycle or mountain bike suspension fork with pneumatic tubes).
Nothing too alarming, and certainly no issues shifting that would cause
me to suspect a transmission problem, but I would like the community's
opinion on the sticky clutch. Something to worry about?
