Clutch acting up on my civic, advice ?

Hey guys.. I was just driving my civic today, and as I'm almost home when I go to push the clutch I feel it act completely different. It seems much easier to push down (doesn't push back on my foot), and it comes back up much slower. The grabbing point may or may not be the same (hard to tell if its further back or if the slow release makes it seem like it).

It's a pain the *** starting in first now, it comes back slow so i'm not used to it and it feels weird. When I shirt to second it's also jerky as I'm not used to it coming back out this slow...

Any ideas? the clutch itself should be fine,never slipped or anything. Should I take it to a shop or should I jsut drive it like this.. I'm sure I can get used to it eventually but it IS very strange

thanks.

Did you check your clutch fluid level?

Check for leaks around the clutch master cylinder and the line running to the slave cylinder and the slave cylinder it self.


How many km's on that clutch?

nah they are both super easy... slave is 2 bolts and a threaded line (it is located near the front of the tranny) the master is removed from the inside 2 bolts and a pin.
