Q: 2007 Honda Accord not going into gear

asked by on

The clutch pedal on my manual transmission has no pressure. At first it was having trouble going in and out of gear. The clutch fluid was also low, though I could see no visible leaks. Now, it won't go into gear at all.

You seem to be having a hydraulic (fluid transfer) issue here. The leak may be in the slave cylinder, master cylinder or the lines and hoses that move the fluid from each part to the other. Look for leaks under the dashboard above the clutch pedal. A leak here would be a failed master cylinder. Next, follow the lines from the master cylinder down to the transmission. See if the lines have signs of moisture. Once at the transmission, you may see saturation at the bottom, if so, the slave cylinder has a leak. I suggest having a trained technician, such as one from YourMechanic, inspect your shifting issue, replace your clutch fluid, and complete any other necessary repairs.

Q: While driving at a speed of 40 mph all at a sudden the car speed dropped to 10 mph and stopped with solid check engine light

Hello. Warning lights accompanied with stalling can be caused by many things. If the oil is low I would go ahead and top it off to prevent the possibility of engine damage, however, it is unlikely that low oil is...

Q: Looking for a second opinion

That certainly sounds like a clutch. Your clutch should last 150,000 miles and is not common for a 2 year old car to need a replacement. The only way I would figure your clutch could wear that fast is if...
