I have a 2002 mitsubishi lancer. I started having a problem with my car not going into gear about 2 weeks ago, I checked the brake fluid and it was still about half full so I filled it up. After that I really didn't have a problem until tonight. I had problems putting it into first gear and finally got it in, went around the corner at the red light and clutch wouldn't engage. Now when I push the clutch in a get a lot of grinding noises coming from it and it will not do anything now. Whats wrong?

Do you
have the same problem?

I had the same prob back around november change out the master then the slave and twice with new one and I found yesterday a blog saying it could be a bad brake hose front so today I got a new one and changed that out and it's about 6 months later and Im still having issues I have to pump the clutch sometimes just to get into gear your best bet which I wish I started with is just to get it over to a dealer and have their shop take a look at it then if they fix it and it's still not working lol

Hey KKA916,

It sounds like it is the clutch disc which can fall apart and make the clutch not disengaged which will cause the grinding noise.

Here is a guide that can further explain.
