Answers :

Sorry your problem is easy ...all you need is a complete new clutch assy .
\015\012As the clutch is a self adjusting unit and the only thing that causes it is either you use it like a hotrod and slip the clutch when powering up OR rideing the clutch when on hills or at the lights,,,or the car has done a lot of miles..
\015\012But if the clutch drives 1/2 from the top then replace the lot dont replace just centre plate you want the

My 1992 subaru legacy wagon leaks coolant from the area under the car where I believe the water pump is. Previous to the leak the overflow tank would fill up and and not allow coolant back into the radiator. I've read on other message boards there could be other problems than just a water pump (thermostat, head gaskets, warped/cracked head). Any ideas? and how intense of a job is changing a water pump and adjusting the timing for this car?

How do you adjust the clutch pedal on a 91 Nissan 300zx (non-turbo)? I just got my car back from the shop for it's second clutch rebuild. Don't want to take it back just for an adjustment if I can do it myself. Clutch is high and a bit stiff.

Man, I've got issues. I thank you guys for taking the time. Just got my car back from the mechanic, and my car idles crazy to 4 1/2 rpm in park every time I start the car and drops to 1 when in park or reverse. He says he already adjusted the idle control. So why is it revving so dang high?

When I start my corrado it revs high to about 3000 rpm's then comes down to normal in about 30 sec. It also drops low like it's going to shut off when I stop and take a bit to come back up to a normal idle rpm. Is there anyway to adjust this I recently replaced the idle control valve.

Looked in the manual for my 1990 Subaru Legacy wagon, and comparing it to my car's engine, there is no EGR valve or back pressure transducer, at least nothing that looks anything like what the manual displays. Is it okay for a car not to have these things??

Recently bought a 1988 Accord. It revs high upon starting, and at lights stays at 900rpm. Told by dealer (over phone) it's probably the Idler Control Valve - $300!! Can I just take a chance and fix the plug over the idle speed adjustment for $0$? $300 is a lot of money to me!


Yep, you can do that. You can also use Seafoam (you can get it at parts stores) and clean the intake manifold out with that. The instructions are on the can, and it's super easy to do. Also, you can take off a vacuum line from the ICV, put a WD40 ... Honda Accord
