Prelude wont shift

My prelude was working fine before i took it to the car wash. after the wash i noticed that the clutch pedal will get stuck at the bottom and ill have to pull it back with my foot. It was riding fine on my way home. When i got home and turned off the car i started it back up. this time the gears will not go in and the clutch will get stuck deep down there. Is it my transmission messing up or do i need a new clutch. thanx for you help.

Re: Prelude wont shift

The slave cylinder maybe bad but it shouldn't cost no more than $30-45 bucks and its not hard at all to install..

Re: Prelude wont shift

how was the level of your fluid? same thing happened to mine.

try bleeding it first before you start buying stuff. it only takes couple minutes to do it.

theres a thread on this forum on how to do it

Re: Prelude wont shift

Are the slave cylinder and master clutch cylinder the same?

Re: Prelude wont shift

slave cylinder is in front of the tranny. master cylinder is in front of the brake booster some people call them the same thing....

Re: Prelude wont shift

You should change both the master and slave cylinder just to be safe and not have to bleed the system twice

Re: Prelude wont shift

I had the SAME exact problem last month. My friend and I just bled my clutch. It took roughly 20 minutes and completely solved my problem. Try this first. Don't get discouraged, I couldn't tell a difference the first 10 minutes.

Re: Prelude wont shift

^^ exactly what he said. if you want you can buy that 1 man bleeding kit to make things easier plus it comes with a hose that you can plug at the bleed valve so you can see the air bubbles and would have a better idea
