Asked by Nov 10, 2015 at 12:25 PM about the 2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

It will go into gear eventually, but some times I have to put in neutral, step on
the brake, depress the clutch again, or turn the car off and restart it.  The
clutch was recently replaced about a year ago. It only seems to happen when
its hot out or in stop and go traffic. It primarily affects 1st, second, and
reverse.

Just a guess but have you checked your hydraulic clutch fluid level? If it is low you could have problems getting the car into gear. You may have a bad slave or master cylinder.

Thank you! The fluid was fine last I checked, but I will look again. Is that an expensive fix?

It depends on what is wrong but as repairs go it is fairly minor.
