2004 Mitsubishi Lancer clutch problems Sign In

Hi! I have an '04 Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart manual with a 2.4L engine, 140K miles. Last year I was driving somewhere and I lost my clutch pedal, it went all the way to the floor and the car died. We had it towed home and a mechanic friend fixed it for me. It's doing it again and he says it may be the fluid is low or I may need a new clutch master cylinder.

When I drive it, it does the same thing- once I get going, it drives ok for a bit till I have to downshift and put on the brake. Then the gearshift sticks and the car tries to die. I can restart it and pop the clutch to get going again for a few.
I know this is pretty vague, but I don't know exactly what my friend fixed last time, and he can't look at it until a week from now. If all I need to do is refill the brake fluid and it'll run till then, this would be awesome as I don't have money to take it in again. I'm checking the fluid levels tonight after work. Thanks!

Refilling the brake fluid likely won't help now. It has drawn air into the system. You need to stop driving it and get it repaired before someone gets hurt.

I have stopped driving it, thank you. As soon as the trouble started I parked it. I'd like to drive it again soon, which is why I'm here. :)

Then find and replace the leaking component and bleed the system and you'll be back in business.
