SHIFTING PROBLEM

2000 Acura Integra • 4 cylinder FWD Manual • 112,000 miles

Sstarting yesterday it became more difficult to shift gears. Today, from a complete stop it took me quite a few tries before I could get it into first and I really have to work to get it there. The clutch also feels a bit different than I'm used to, it feels like I have to push it in farther before it catches. I'm hoping this doesn't mean a new clutch is in order for me?

It could be a leaking Clutch master or slave. Check the fluid to see if it is low. Also, look at the back of the clutch master for fluid leak (under dash on driver's side firewall). Also check for fluid loss at the clutch slave cylinder. If either is leaking, I suggest replacing both since they work together.
