I drive a 1987 Prelude 1.8 5-Speed. The clutch had been working fine up until 2 days ago. I've been searching all over the net with no luck.
As I was driving, I hit the clutch to gear down going onto an exit ramp, and it just wouldnt shift. When the car is turned off I can switch between gears. I can start the car in neutral, But then can't shift it into first gear. If I push start the car in 1st gear it will take off, but when stopping I hold down the clutch and there is like no neutral and the car just dies out when I stop. When actually moving, I can switch between gears but it is very hard, you pretty much have to yank the shifter to get it to budge.
It is a mechanical clutch, so there is no hydraulic system, only a cable and pully (which are pulling fine, just a lot harder to push in on the clutch pedal)
