Default Whats wrong with my 1990 standard trans honda accord?

Out of the blue my clutch pressure changed while i was driving my car and the it became extremly hard to to shift into all gears. Even when i have the clutch pushed in all the way and its in first or reverse the car still pulls as if im easing off the clutch but im not i have the clutched pushed all the way down. Somebody said it might be a slave cylinder

slave or the master cylinder might have leak check to see if the master is full if not then one or the other will need to be replaced and the system will have to be re-bled

It's hard to say, but it can be a number of things. Considering the year of your car have you ever replaced the master and slave cylinders? Have you ever replaced the clutch? It sounds like the pressure plate is not disengaging from the fly wheel all the way. It could be the fork or the linkage. It could be the throw out bearing. It's going to need to be looked at. I don't think there is any quick fixes here. Sorry.

You can hope the clutch cylinders are the problem. They always leak when they fail, so look under the rubber boot on the slave cylinder (mounted on the bell housing... follow the hydraulic line) and check below the clutch push-rod on the inside of the firewall. Blotting that area with a paper towel is the easiest way of checking for fluid. If a cylinder is leaking, replace it and bleed the system. Life is good.

If the cylinders are not leaking the clutch itself has failed, with the most likely scenario being a "popped spring." It is a fairly common failure in Honda clutches and comes on very suddenly. A spring in the clutch disk has worn down its cage enough to pop out and has jammed the clutch. It won't jam the clutch as much as letting the clutch out altogether does but the drag is enough to make changing gears a challenge. See the section about "springs popping out" in the source.
