Clutch Pedal Engagement Issue

Hi V6P,

I've had a weird issue with my car the past week or so. It's a 2006 Sedan V6 6-Speed. The clutch catch-point has always been high. However, occasionally when I shift, the clutch becomes twice as hard to engage and catches almost immediately, rather than having a high catch point like usual. Next shift will be normal.

My initial thoughts are clutch fluid or something with the master cylinder. Anyone have an idea what the heck is going on?

I don't think it's the issue, but I'm riding on the original clutch, which I'm sure is getting close to the end of it's life.

Agreed. Pressure plate is the culprit. It mostly happens if I do some aggressive acceleration where the RPMs push past 5K before the gear change, but it does go back to normal within a pump or two of the peddle. It is very seldom experienced during normal, daily driving. I have had the same problem for 3 years now, but the clutch has no slippage so I live with it. I've already saved the money for a clutch job, and now waiting on for it to start slipping one day.

Thanks for the responses, sucks a little bit but sounds like it's livable.

You've been driving around on yours for a while without any problems? I suppose it would just be annoying, but I may do the same and just live with it for a bit. Clutch has some life in it and I'll be looking to sell in a little bit so no real point for me to spend all the money on it that I'll never see back.

Glad to help. I think it’s livable. I suspect this problem was the main reason the car was traded in by the original owner. I felt a slight bit of it when I first bought it, but it was masked by a bad clutch master cylinder. Replaced the master and the slave and it drove great for a couple of weeks until the one day it almost went to the floor before it allowed me to change gears. It freaked me out a bit. Took it to two different shops, and they could not duplicate the symptom, so they said keep driving it. One of them complimented on how well it drove and how well the clutch gripped, so I keep on driving it. If you plan on selling the car in the next year or two, I say keep it as it is and save your money.

Mine does the same. These cars have a dual mass flywheel as well that could be the cause. They're not cheap either.
