Clutch problems on a 03 lancer es
i just bought a 2003 lancer es. She ran great when i bought her and on the ride home. I took her in about a week later to get her inspected once i got tires put on her. Well when i went to go pull the car into the bay my clutch went straight to the floor. we bled the lines but had to reverse bleed the lines but ended up getting pull pressure back. About a week later after driving her all week, all a sudden my clutch lost full pressure again. I pumped the clutch and got pressure back. But every time you drive it every 5-10 minutes the clutch will lose full pressure again but you pump the clutch and the pressure comes back. Not sure why. only thing i can think is somehow there's air getting into my lines but not sure how. Anyone have any ideas?? clutch has 10,000 miles on it according to the guy i bought the car from. Not sure if its my lines are bad or my slave cylinder. If you have any suggestions please feel free to tell me. haven't owned a 5 speed in about 10 years so not fully sure how it works.
