Trouble getting into 1st/reverse, cold engine

Asked by Feb 24, 2016 at 08:55 PM about the 1996 Honda Civic del Sol

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I  drive a 96 Honda del sol. So this problem
first started happening a few weeks ago.
When my car would be sitting overnight
and after starting it (with no problem) my
clutch was stuck--it wouldn't go into first
or reverse. The clutch would be basically
touching the floor, with little resistance. But
after running the ending for like ten mins it
goes back to normal--no problem getting
into first/reverse, normal resistance, etc.
the brake fluid or whatever was a little low,
so I bought some and filled it to the max
level, but the problem continues to
happen: no resistance, engine reads below
cold, clutch not working, warm car for ten
mins, back to normal. Does anyone know
the problem??

Sounds like either your clutch master cylinder or slave cylinder is possibly in need of replacing. Also could just be leaking fluid and now has air in system. Repairing leak and bleeding system may need to be done. Have it inspected before it lets you down. These only get worse. Normally not a hard fix.
