This has been an ongoing problem with my car since last summer. I had my tranny rebuilt last year, and while it was out, I installed a cartek clutch, adj master and new slave. Everything went smooth until we tried to get the tranny back in. Either the alignment tool was a little of, or it just didn't want to slide back in. But the tranny would go all the way in except for about 1/4", so we used the bolts to pull it in the rest of the way.
Problem 1. After about 2 weeks since it was installed, the pedal pressure kepted getting harder and harder. Finally, I was driving and the pedal did not go done at all, and SNAP, the rod connecting the pedal to the master snapped in half. Cartek sent me a new one and told me it must have been a faulty master, or it was adjusted too much.
Current problem. Now the car will not shift at high RPM, it takes me almost a full second to engage a different gear while racing. I have changed the fluid several times but this seems to help for the first 10-15 miles.
Also, what is strange, if I have the car stopped and while pressing in the clutch. When I rev up the engine to about 5k, I can feel the clutch pedal trying to push my foot up..
I am thinking either one of the following three. Either the slave cylinder I have is bad, the clutch disk is warped or air in the lines.
Any ideas?? [ March 10, 2003, 09:03 AM: Message edited by: black00WS6 ]
