So a few days ago the parking break started to stay on, and as I figured, the break fluid was low. While driving, pressing the clutch in felt normal, but would engage way sooner than usual when letting it out. So fill the fluid when i get home, then the next morning, I try reversing out of my driveway, and the clutch starts engaging almost immediately after clutch movement, and when I press it back in, it doesnt disengage it and the car stalls.
It is strange though, when the car is off, the clutch has normal pressure again. And the fluid is still at full from when i filled it 3 days ago. Any suggestions?
Well good news, I almost went to mazda and spent 150 on a new master cylinder, but i didnt have any cash on me at the time and then later i stopped at advanced auto parts to see if they had it which they didnt. But they had this master cylinder kit that replaced some of the parts to overhaul it and it cost me 15 bucks. Yesterday i took the cylinder out, cleaned it and replaced parts i had, bled the lines, and it works perfectly. The clutch is even easier to press now.
congrats, but 1 more step needed to be done is check the clutch disc make sure it is NOT CONTAMINATED with the fluids, if it does, sooner or later it will grab onto the flywheel and you might wanna change the whole kit =). Just a precautious for you.
