Default 1995 Acura Integra LS clutch problems?

its a new clutch with only about 3000 miles on it and its hard to get it into gear. when i put it in reverse the car starts to creep without letting the pedal out. its not fully disengaging and im not sure why... ive already tried to adjust the pedal but i fear the problem is more serious.... any ideas?

Check your clutch mechanisms.

1. Clutch pedal

- If your system is cable-driven, try adjusting the cable nut. You would want a pedal feel that would disengage the clutch sooner (shallower).

- If your system is hydraulic-driven, check fluid levels. Also try re-bleeding the hydraulic system. Air in the hydraulic system will make it difficult for you to disengage the clutch.

2. Clutch assembly

- If #1 didn't solve your problem, check the clutch assembly. Check the release fork and bearing.

It could be a couple of things actually.

1.It could be the clutch not disingaging. I got a bad clutch one time it lasted a day.

2.Could be the master cylinder or slave cylinder or both. I would recomend getting those done somewhere bc the lines need to be bled and done very well. If there is one little bubble the car will not go into gear.

3.Very unlikely, but a very small possibility sincs are going out. You can tell that by driving the car though. When you are driving the car if you shift fast, it grinds, and doesnt let you go into gear then also if you hold the clutch in for a second and shift slowly but lets you go into gear that is the sinc.

I fear you are right - it sounds like the clutch is dragging, which is the result of the clutch disk not moving away from either the flywheel or pressure plate. That can result from the input shaft not being lightly lubricated or the shaft being bent. Occasionally it will be a bad pilot bearing, especially if that was not replaced when the clutch was done (the bearing comes out the back of the flywheel). However, if the last little bit of pedal movement at the bottom makes a difference you should look at the clutch cylinders first. If the slave cylinder was disconnected rather than removed to get the transmission off it may need to be bled better. It's sure easier than getting into the clutch again.

The definitive test for a dragging clutch is to gently hold pressure like you are shifting into reverse with the engine running. If you hear the gears continually clatter against each other rather than slow down and engage, the clutch is dragging.
