    Any Baltimore clutch techs in the house ?

    Hey everyone, I posted in the noob section (thread title is Confused Supra ower). Basically, I'm baby sitting my buddy's WRX while he's deployed, and I'm 95% certain the clutch is shot. It's an '03 WRX with ~80k mileage, and the clutch pedal sticks when I let go after putting the car in gear. The ride is bone stock, not overly abused. The tranny is shifting smoothly (no grinds or clicks), but it takes forever and a day for the clutch pedal to let up and if I mash on the gas while it's making it's mind up, I get the good 'ol neutral rev sound and no power to the wheels.

    If there are any local gurus in the house that don't mind helpin a brudda out, I'd be most appreciative. I've always had a pretty good support crowd, from the time I started with DSM's, and moving on to Nissans and now my Supra's.

    Thanks in advance.

    It sounds to me like there is no pressure in the system.

    First I would check the clutch master cylinder to see if it has fluid in it. (mounted to the firewall over the tranny)

    Then you should open up the reservior and check the color of the fluid. It should be a light brown, almost clear color. If its black and/or contaminated you likely have a leak or deteriorating slave or master cylinder. Which leads to the final check...

    Look over the clutch hydraulic line for leaks, tears, etc. Also check the boot of the slave cylinder. If any of those parts show sign of trauma, that is likely the reason you have no pedal pressure.

    Good luck and keep us informed...
