95 Cavalier 5-spd with non-adjustable Hyd clutch, 90k miles. No clutch
work done recently.
From a standstill the trans grinds when I try to get it into any gear.
While driving, it grinds between gears. From a standstill it almost
won't go into reverse, unless forced (bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz-clunk!)
The clutch plate doesn't seem to slip at all. I've tried to get it to
slip at all RPM speeds, and gears. Won't slip.
If I select 1st gear at a standstill, the clutch engages as soon as I
lift my foot. It seems like the clutch plate is not seperating
enough when pedal is fully depressed.
Over the past week the problem has gotten progressively worse.
I don't think it is the clutch plate as it doesn't slip.
Does it sound like air in the line?...Any ideas?
