    Hi All,
    I hope someone can help :) My daughter's 1995 Accent seems to have a
    clutch problem. She states that the clutch seems to stick. The clutch
    goes all the way to the floor and won't come back up; she is not able to
    shift gears. This just started yesterday and today it has not happened
    so far.
    What should she be looking for? BTW, the manual is "safely put away" and
    she doesn't remember the safe place.
    I sure hope someone can point me in the right direction, so I want have
    to do extra driving to get her and my grandson to and fro.
    Thanks in advance for your valued consideration.

    Have A Good One!

  2. The manual won't do you any good. It sounds like you've got a serious
    problem with the clutch system. Either that, or the fluid is really low.
    Either way, the clutch needs to be checked out and bled at the very
    least. Get the car to a dealer or repair shop and get it fixed.

    I'm not 100% sure on this model year but I think it has a hydraulic
    clutch. In other words the pedal moves fluid through the lines to
    make the actual clutch move. Just like modern brake systems work.
    If it is simmilar to my accent ( an 01). Have her check the brake
    and clutch fluid.

    If she opens the hood and looks in the corner nearest the drivers door
    there will be two white containers with black lids. The brake fluid
    is in the bottle that is kinda square shaped. The clutch fluid is the
    one that is round. Both bottles have markings on them to indicate if
    the fluid is high or low.

    If the problem hasn't returned perhaps it was a little air bubble in
    the line. Either way she should have it checked out so she doesn't
    get stranded.

    There may have been some clutch master cylinders with this vehicle. I
    can't remember which specific years had the issue.
