Whats Wrong with my Clutch ( I Think)

Asked by Jan 14, 2012 at 09:53 PM about the 2001 Chevrolet Cavalier Z24 Coupe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi, I just bought from a friend a 2001, Chevrolet Cavalier Z24 with the 2.4 5 speed manual (great little car)

My problem look like the opposite of having to bleed the Clutch.

Basically i only need to use the first 1-2" of the pedal never have to press more then that. and if i do it just doesn't do anything.

Everything work well, no weird noise, transmission shift well.

I already change a Clutch in the past (Jetta 91' and Ranger 94') so i can get arround stuff even if i dont know much.

So if someone would let me know if its normal or just a sport chlutch or maybe an adjustement would be great

its a hydrolic clutch,eather the clutch master,located on firewall,is bad or low on dot 3 brake fluid or the slave cylender is going bad.the system may just need bleeding.
