Hi guys. This is my first time posting on forums. My cd7 accord is having some clutch sticking problems. It only sticks sometimes. (More often than not) but I can give it a few pumps and it gets some resistance. I know I'm not leaking fluid because my master cyl resivour is staying full. Ive tried changing the master and slave cyl and bleeding it. Any ideas on what it could be?
Thanks

I had my buddy in the car and had him pull up the pedal then push down then I loosened and tightened the bleeder, repeat. But I'll check tonight for cracks. Would I be looking around where the pedal pivots?

Either use valve or vacuum bleed, gravity bleed does not always work

If you are not loosing fluid you can still get air in the system trough the clutch cylinder connected to the pedal.
This is a common fault on WV cars

Not sure about this model, but some Hondas present significant problems in completely removing all trapped air from the slave cylinder...

I've heard of some Civic owners having to unbolt and elevate the slave cylinder during bleeding and also on Accords for the slave cylinder to require the rod to be forced in during bleeding to compress the cylinder volume to eliminate air pockets.

Okay, so, ive checked near the pedal for cracks. Nothing. I power bled the system and it worked when I took it for a spin around the block and then right before I got to the driveway it went to the floor. Maybe its a faulty slave cyl? Or master cyl? Other than that I'm out of ideas.

There are only 3 options
1. Faulty master cylinder
2. Faulty slave cylinder
3. Air in the system
If you ask me i would point the finger on the master cylinder behind the pedal

Yes I agree would be inclined to check cmc ensure their is no split on reservoir hose to where air can be introduced otherwise look at replacing cmc.

Sorry for not keeping you guys updated. Ive been super busy and with two jobs I don't get a lot of time to get stuff done. I replaced the slave cylinder first and got it bled because it was a lot easier. That didn't work so the other night I replaced the master cylinder. Haven't got it bled yet due to limited time. But should have it done within the next couple of days. I'm really hoping thats what's going on. Thanks to all for all of the advice. I'll post again when I get this master cylinder bled.
