I've had a 86 GT for 6 or 7 years and never had any problems with the clutch before. When I bought the car the former owner had just replaced the clutch. I parked the car for the winter and when I put it away last fall all was well. This spring I can't put the car in gear after is is started and the top 3/4 of the throw is mushy. I checked the fluid level and all is well there. I'm thinking either the master or slave has gone bad. I've seen in threads in the past that people have had issues with certain brands. Who makes the best master and slaves cylinders and does anyone know the part numbers?

Jack your car on the driver side maybe one foot , and take the bleeder off the slave , let the oil come out for maybe 10 minutes watching the level in the Master cylinder so it doesn't go underneath the low level . That's gravity bleeding .after that just put the bleeder back on . And test trial the pedal . Did that on mine last week or so . Before i was doing this but only till i couldn't see the bubbles coming out the slave , but that was not enough , i've done it maybe 5-6 times and it was still coming back . But since then no more problem Worked good for me Wish you good luck That help getting the dirty oil out off the system .
