Would just like to here some opinions on wat is rong with either my clutch cable or my plates...
When i go out driving, like everyday, the changing of the gears is good (manual), like it slides into gear good, no clunk or anything. But then wen i like feed it abit and drop the cltch a few to many times in a nite (doesnt have to be many maybe 3 or 4, it gets heaps hard to get the bit(h into gear!
So the next morning, i get under neath and tighten the cable (tightened it so much ive had to put a spacer in) from the bottom. It doesnt look like the plate's stuffed coz it returns bak to the same position...
Would like to no wat you guys think, and wat i should do?
So is this effect permanent, or is she fine the next morning?
An easy way to tell if the cable's stretched is to get somebody to hold the pedal down, then get under the car with a long screwdriver or extension bar and see how much further forwards you can lever the clutch fork.
Failing that you might be looking at the pressure plate having issues, need more info tho

Yeah she'z still ****ed the next morning ay, start her up and cant get her into reverse, just grinds away. and if you try to get it into 1st its heaps hard to go in, and if it does it usually maks a clunk sound.
Oh and you cant start it in reverse coz it wont go in. Its all good after you tighten it the next morning.
