Just got the clutch redone...but...
Posted 09 August 2003 - 12:53 PM
So, I got the car...went for a drive...I have to smash the clutch pedal to the floor to shift...and even then I have to press on the gas to get the car to go into a different gear. The clutch dosnt disengage when I am in gear...it will click and the pedal shakes a lot.
So I took it back...he said it is just a 'fine ajustement' that needs done on it.
I went to a local mechanic this time...the dealer has a wait of like 2 - 3 weeks to get the car in.
I hope they fix it and the clutch is working well and all...195,000 miles on the last clutch...this one better last a long while.

(the 2 - 3 weeks wait is how long it would have taken to get the car into the dealer.)
The engine seems to be making different noises, too...I hope they didn't screw something with it up.
I'll keep you all posted with how it turns out and if anything else goes wrong.

I got the car back and he ajusted it...its easyer to shift and the clutch feels better...but in like 1st, 2nd. and 3rd gear the clutch still ticks a bit...he said its a little rubber thing that was worn out and that needs replaced...he said he'd order it from Subaru and call me when it gets in...I hope that solves the noise and stuff.
I am not used to a new clutch. I learned to drive a manual in cars that had lots of miles on the clutchs, and when my mom taugt me it was in a 2000 Ford Ranger with like 25,000 miles on the clutch...so it was broken in...today was the first time I have ever driving a car with a brand new clutch.
I'll keep you posted on it and post some pictures of the cable thing.

the car vibrates a lot...the clutch is weird...its like the hill holder is always on or something...like the car wont even budge unless I am totaly off the clutch...and its really hard to shift into gear.
I am going to have my mom take it back down tomorrow to have him adjust it again and see what is up with it. I'd go down...but i'll be out of town.
