new tranny GL4 fluid, must say, for syncomesh transmissions on the bottle,
MT1 is no good .
ok, get rid of that old dead , binding clutch cable. $45 for oEM newone.
then set the free play to spec.
if that cures it good !
look under car at bell housing and make sure the lever (end) moves 1 inch when you
put pedal to the floor.
no , you linkage is bad.
yes, good 1 inch?. clutch is bad.
final proof proof after above is done is,
use zero clutch play.
now if clutch gets better its bad the clutch. (but can drive easy for short time)
no change in shifting, then clutch is bad.
My clutch is sick what is wrong
bad cables wreck the splines on the pedal shaft.
now problem cascades to more expensive.
imho, cables are 100k mile parts. max.
