      Did you also bleed the clutch slave cylinder? If not, do it just like you would do your brakes at the wheel. Make sure you keep the master cylinder filled as you do this.

      It sounds like you have not bled all of the air out of the system.
      Hope this helps

      First step - check the transmission fluid level and refill as necessary. Unfortunately, these vehicles are not known for transmission longetivity and they can fail at any time. How many miles on the transmission? How many miles since the last service; fluid and filter change?

    While driving, my car makes an intermittent dragging/chain sound.
    The sound is sometimes brief, but I notice that the tachometer jumps when the sound is made. Other times, the sound is longer and will stop when I take my foot off the gas. It may happen every few minutes. I don't hear it when I'm going over 60 MPH. It's hard to ...

      Should be no more than $350

      Agreed - the price quoted is too expensive - shop around for additional quotes at more reasonable prices. Try the many on-line auto parts sources, such as; or for the replacement parts. For example, they (Rock Auto) lists the entire clutch kit; friction disc, diaphragm plate, throwout bearing, and alignment tool - complete from around $97.00 for your vehicle.
      Granted, this is the parts cost if you purchase - but you may then calculate around $150-$200 maximum for the labor costs to repace.

      Might be just me but that seems a little high . I would call around for a few prices even to the dealer . Give you an idea . The clutch for my semi cost $700 for a new one and around $1000-$1200 in labor to put it in . You should be able to have it done to your little car for about $600 maybe less . Keep in mind . What is a 1990 honda worth ? If I had to bet I would say less than $1000 .

    hesitate/light jerk when accelerating, lack of power
    89,000 miles. regular maintenance every year. Sometimes when I accelerate it seems to hesitate with a slight jerk and feels like it lacks power getting up to speed. The check engine light flashes a couple of times and shuts off. Then the problem seems to subside ...

      First step - have the check engine light or stored fault codes scanned - for free - at any local auto parts store; Advance Auto, Auto Zone, NAPA. Then, post a reply as 'add answer' for more assistance.

      Possible Causes of Engine Hesitation or Stumble:

      Dirty fuel injectors (cleaning the injectors often fixes this)
      Dirty air filter (change filter)
      Dirty / clogged fuel filter (change filter)
      Bad MAP (manifold absolute pressure) sensor
      Bad TPS (throttle position) sensor
      Bad or dirty MAF (mass airflow) sensor
      Low fuel pressure (leaky fuel pressure regulator or weak fuel pump)
      Vacuum leaks (intake manifold, vacuum hoses, throttle body, EGR valve)
      Bad gasoline (fuel contaminated with water or too much alcohol)

      Sometimes, what feels like a hesitation is actually ignition misfire rather than lean misfire. The causes of ignition misfire may include:

      Dirty or worn spark plugs
      Bad plug wires
      Weak ignition coil
      Wet plug wires

    After a front axle replacement the car leaks transmission fluid . Is there an internal seal or gasket that needs replac
    the owner of this car changed the front axle and the car has leaked transmission fluid ever since. is ther an internal seal that has been compromised ? If so, can it be repaired from the outside of the transmission or does the transmission need to be opened?

      Hi There
      What likely happened was the output shaft seal was damaged during axle replacement. The axle will need to be removed again, the seal will need to be replaced and care will need to be taken when the axle is re installed. Hope this helps you.
