Engine Mechanical problem
2001 Honda CRV 4 cyl All Wheel Drive Manual 113000 miles
For the last month I have been having issues with my clutch. It started with the clutch loosing pressure to the point that it was almost on the floor. I was told to try and bleed the slave cylinder. That didn't work so I took it to a garage and they replaced the master cylinder. When I got the car back, the petal felt really had to push down, but I thought nothing of it. The car worked fine for a day and then I drove to the store and when I came back out to drive to work, I could not put the car into gear. There was pressure on the petal but the car would not shift into gear when on. I could put it into gear when the car was off. So I took it back to a garage. They bleed the line and readjusted the petal (it wasn't adjusted correctly initally) and said I should be good to go. A couple days later, my clutch started to slip. I took the car back and got the whole clutch and slave cylinder replaced. The lines were not replaced. Car drove fine for a couple of days and then I felt the clutch pedal start to get more pressure. Eventaully the same thing happened. I got into my car and went to drive and I could not put the car into gear. The clutch petal felt harder to press down. The only way I have found to get it so I can drive my car home is to open up the slave clyinder valve which releives the pressure in the clutch petal and I am able to drive for a couple days. Could there be a problem with the line or is it maybe a bad master cylinder?
