Q: Manual clutch not giving much resistance

asked by on

The manual clutch does not have much resistance, and at times it's difficult to put in First and Reverse.

Hello. If the manual clutch does not have very much resistance and you are having trouble shifting into First Gear and Reverse, the clutch master cylinder and slave cylinder need to be replaced. These components work together to allow the clutch to function properly. I would recommend having a certified mechanic inspect your vehicle and make these repairs if necessary.
