Sluttypatton, just one more question. I was reading on a corvette forum about a guy who had similar problems but he took his to a specialist. they told him that the faulty slave cylinder was passing fluid into the clutch and as a result burnned out his clutch. I know the system is independent and he got ripped off but just how possible is it for the leak to cause dammage to the perriferal area? Can enough fluid eventually leak into the tranny?

Re: Clutch problems... HELP!

Don't shift to first unless you are at a complete stop. My car has the same resistance when moving...it doesn't want you to go into 1st. Generally, if it is pretty hard to get it into a lower gear, that means you shouldn't be in that gear. You can take first to 30some mph(or whatever it's topspeed is) but once you shift to 2nd, even if you are only at 7mph, don't shift back to first, it's hell on your synchros.

Depending on the positioning of the slave cylinder, I suppose it is possible that the leaking fluid could migrate into the bell housing where the transmission bolts to the engine and contaminate the clutch. Usually this isn't a problem, but I suppose it could happen.
