Did you follow Clutchmasters break in procedures?
Why did you go with such a set up for a daily driver?
Any mods done to the engine?
When was the last time the clutch system was bled?
The Clutchmasters break-in procedures simply specify no hard starts or full throttle launches for the first 500 miles. I can verify this was followed to the letter. My wife also no longer downshifts when braking, since I beat it in her head when we got the car that I'd rather replace brakes than clutch.
I intended on putting an NGM S/C on this car. The project was put on the back burner and never began.
No engine mods. Stock airbox, stock injectors, stock exhaust. (Unless you count the FL/2 rear conversion including mufflers)
That's the tough one. I have NOT performed a yearly bleed, since the clutch pedal has always been firm. Never spongy or soft. Until now.
How many miles and what type of driving?
Time means nothing to a clutch.
How much freeplay in the clutch pedal? Possible it needs a fluid change or adjustment at the master cylinder.
Let's see. We live in a suburb. This car has seen daily (30 mi round trip) trips to the college campus, grocery store, and being a taxi to kids. Where I live you have to get on a freeway to get pretty much anywhere. I was hoping I'd be able to pull up mileage history on AAA, but I can't find it. The wife also threw away my log book (ugh.) I can only estimate about 40k miles.
"True" freeplay (Foot off the pedal to slight resistance felt) is about 1/2 inch. There's also a noticeable "pop" feel (like something was stuck) after that point. Subsequent presses of the clutch pedal still has the same pop, but less pronounced.
"pop" position to resistance felt is about another inch. So 1 to 1-1/2 inch total.
I definitely have to lift my foot higher to engage the clutch and start moving than I used to.
