Icon8 BIG CLUTCH PROBLEM!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok, so here's what the cars doing:

I wake up in the morning and the clutch is really low, i drive it and it raises HIGH. Probably an air bubble right?...no. Ive bled the clutch a total of 9 times for 30mins each. Keeps doing it.

Now for the weird part:

If i let the car idle, the pedal also raises. If i idle it for like 10-15 mins, the clutch activation point gets so high it barely grabs. And thats ONLY when i let it idle. If i start driving it, it goes back down to being just high up.

What ive changed:

Master Cylinder
Slave Cylinder
Clutch Fluid


I'm thinking maybe there's a problem with a line? But i don't see any leaking. And the clutch reservoir doesn't deplete over time.

HELP!!!!!!

Re: BIG CLUTCH PROBLEM!!!!!!!!!!!!

don't even know if this is a possibility, just taking a wild guess, maybe your lines are expanding under-pressure, thus reducing pressure on the pedal.

Re: BIG CLUTCH PROBLEM!!!!!!!!!!!!

Are you using DOT 3 brake fluid? Sounds like you have the wrong fluid or a fualty line somehwhere. Or there could be some crazy monster messing around with the pressure plates on the clutch itself

Re: BIG CLUTCH PROBLEM!!!!!!!!!!!!

have u adjusted the pedal?

On the master cylinder, where it connects to the actual pedal assembly, the rod has a 12mm nut and you might just need to adjust ur pedal.
It can drastically change the clutch engagement point.

If i do that the clutch will sink so far over night that i cant get it into gear. I need it to stop raising and lowering before i can adjust the clutch.

no, they would expand when the car is warming up but the pressure builds when the car starts warming up. Driving it or not. Even when idle.

Hey what's up man your clutch problem sounds to me the clutch fluid line is bad since you change the slave cylinder and the clutch cylinder other then the whole complete clutch will probably be next thing need changing one question did you remove the complete brake fluid from the master cylinder and put new fluid and the bled the system . PS did you buy the parts new and did you buy the from a regular auto parts store ,because some times they rebuild and defective so be wary about some stores always try to buy oem parts. Hope this gives you an idea .Later john

Re: BIG CLUTCH PROBLEM!!!!!!!!!!!!

also look for fluid under your car. If you have a slow leak somewhere it may not be dripping, it may be getting absorbed by dirt and debris around the motor. How are you bleeding the clutch out? Not to be a smart ass but bleeding it 9 times doesn't mean it was done correctly...it could have been bled 9 times the wrong way.

I bleed it with a friend where he pumps and holds it, i open and then close the valve and then he lifts the clutch up.

Yea i bought everything new. Replaced all fluid
