Unique Honda Clutch Pedal Problem

Unique Honda Clutch Pedal Problem

Hi Scotty,

I've got a Honda Civic 1.8 EX - 2006 - 85000 miles on original clutch. The clutch doesn't slip and has adaquate pressure during normal driving (0-40 mph) however as soon as I get on the motorway (50-70 mph) the clutch pedal becomes very soft. So soft that I can push it down with my little finger. It still changes gears albeit the biting point is very low! The pedal does come back up but light as a feather going down. Sometimes the gear changes are very abrupt, even when letting the clutch out slowly - mainly on cold, damp days at any speed. In 1st gear, if I accelerate to 10 mph then let the car slow down to 8 mph, the car will suddenly jerk like I've hit something.

I've scoured though days if not weeks going over various forums and speaking to different mechanics to no avail.

I've tried: Flushing the clutch fluid multiple times, even got a garage to do it. Adjusting the CMC (behind pedal) Checked for any leaks in CMC and CSC No fluid loss at all - fluid light brown colour.

Any ideas?

Kind Regards,

Mind if I ask why it doesn't do the same during lower speeds? There's no chance it can be the CMC, right?

sounds like the clutch pressure plate is just wearing out, I'd replace the whole clutch kit myself
