1998 Mazda b3000 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Manual 185000 miles
Hey guys, I was wondering why my clutch has free play in it. It comes and goes very sporadically. It might be nice and tight for a couple of days then all of a sudden, I have like 8 inches of free play in the clutch. I fill they hydraulic fluid reservoir about once a week or so. It really doesn't seem to matter if it is full or not. I don't notice any leaks and a friend of mine who is a mechanic said that the doesn't see any fluid in the tranny. (Never actually took it apart) When the clutch is tight the truck seems to run a lot better. Not as much lifter noise, etc. It just seems like a tighter truck. When the clutch has the free play in it, I have a heck of a time getting it into gear. Thanks for any help you can give me.
