There are many different ways you can drive a stick and still maintain longevity of the clutch/transmission. The biggest thing you want to remember is that while driving, do not rest your foot on the clutch when cruising, but rest your foot on the dead petal next to the clutch. Leaving your foot on there while cruising may cause premature wear on the clutch because you may be putting a small amount of pressure on the clutch which may leave it slightly engaged. As far as coming to a stop, there are many different opinions on this subject, by my driving habits do not include using the transmission to bring the car to a stop. I just use the brakes and keep the car in neutral. My 03 Civic got 64,000 miles on the front brake pads before replacement was needed using this method.

that noise should be the throw-out bearing so you'll have to get that replaced at dealer or at any other mechanic shop...

I'm also having this problem! I tried WD40 and it worked for a day or so. The dealers are such a hassle, I've just lived with it for the past 8 months.

Ya the dealers just give you the runaround because I believe its like a $600 job and I'm sure they don't want to fix it under warranty. Apparently it's the slave cylinder that needs replacement. Mine started squeaking at 37K. Of course it was out of warranty. However, now it has 122K on it and is still running fine. So, it's a matter of how much it really annoys you. I just got used to it after awhile. I'M BUYING AMERICAN FOR MY NEXT CAR as soon as this bomb dies. (This is obviously not the only problem I've had with this car).

#18 of 19 1994 Honda Civic clutch problem
Nov 18, 2012 (9:18 am)
Hello. I have a 1994 Civic EX, and the clutch just won't engage. I have no problem putting it in gear-- it feels like it is in 1st-- and there's no grinding or anything, but it just doesn't engage. I was at the top of a hill, I thought I'd put it gear, but when I took my foot off the break it just started rolling backward. Does anybody have any ideas? Thanks.

When I first start my car and try to put it in gear, it is very hard to put it in gear and the clutch feels like it doesn't engage and disengage until it is really close to the floor. Then If I pump the clutch for a bit it will go in gear easier, and as I drive it gets smoother and the point that the clutch engages and disengages seems to get better, as in I don't have to push the clutch in as far.
I believe my head gasket is also blown so would that have anything to do with the clutch? (sorry I don't know very much about cars)
