Engine Steam Cleaning....
Posted 10 February 2004 - 10:43 PM
Now the clutch pedal feels very stiff and I'm having trouble shifting some of the gears.
Is it possible that the clutch cable had whatever lubrication on it removed by the steam cleaning and it will need to be lubed again?

I'd just replace the whole thing. if theres water in there, its going to rust and break sometime
clutch cable is like 20 bucks
takes 10 min to install

The only saving grace now is if I do get the carburetor properly repaired they will do a "free" dyno" test to see if it will pass smog.
Replacing the clutch cable might not be that easy. But can I "relube it" as I just had the engine steamcleaned just a few days ago?

Lets face it, corporate decisions usually involve the option of purchasing parts that are mass produced, not piecemeal production of parts in ones and twos. It's probably just corporate policy. Does anyone know of any Subaru dealership that will still replace or rebuild a carburetor?
