I was driving my 95 civic ex down corporate blvd the other day, and i
stopped at a light. When i tried to shift into 1st, my car wouldn't go
into any gear. After a little bit of fooling with the clutch and the
shifter it finally went into gear and i drove off. About a mile later
i was pulling into a left turn lane and tried to downshift, and
couldn't put the car into gear. I had to push my car out of the
intersection then i got it towed to my father-in-law's house.
I still can't put the car into any gear. We've already replaced the
clutch master cylinder, bled the system, etc. When i push down on the
clutch the thing connected to the slave cylinder moves about 1/2 inch,
but the clutch is not getting engaged/disengaged at all. I can put the
car into gear when the engine isn't running, and then if i start it
then the car lurches forward, stalls, and dies.
At first we thought it was the hydraulic system because my reservoir
was almost dry and the master cylinder looked like it was in bad
shape. But now it seems like thats functioning properly.
So, i guess what i'm asking is, do i need to replace my clutch, or are
there other things i should be checking?
