Prelude won't switch gears

My baby isn't switching gears. 2nd 4th and reverse will work but the rest wont. My clutch is dropped all the way to floor. Anybody know what this might be?

Check and see if your slave cylinder is engaging the fork at the tranny.

IF so, then you may need a new clutch.

But before going that far, bleed your clutch system first with new fluid and bleed it good.

Then try again.

Re: Prelude won't switch gears

After bleeding the system, Push in the pedal and jam it with a 2x4. Wait about 10 minutes and measure the fork to see if it moved. That will isolate either a bad slave or a bad master cylinder. Make sure the slave doesn't leak after those 10 minutes. If all is good then as stated earlier, Probably a worn out clutch. That 2x4 is how I bleed my system.

Re: Prelude won't switch gears

Oh I might want to add that The my prelude would go into the gears but roughly. Now it just won't go into the slots no matter how hard I push in.

Re: Prelude won't switch gears

Yup third gear doesn't work. Neither does 1st or 5th. I can only get 2nd 4th and reverse to work.
