Got the foci back today. The slave cylinder, and front pads and rotors were done. I had them put synthetic gear oil in it and it came to $642. Which is actually pretty good. But if I let the car sit for a little while and I get back in it, the clutch pedal feels like it has a lot of play in it and it grabs right at the floor. After I pump it up a few times it returns to normal. Did he not bleed it fully? Or is that the new slave cylinder just re adjusting the clutch?

If it didn't do it before then I bet on air still in it. Any self adjusting should have happened in the first few times the pedal was pushed.

Don't go straight to bleeding, that's how this mess started.

Have you checked for a return spring on the clutch pedal yet?

If that isn't there & the master cyl. is less than perfect it can drop down while sitting.

I'm tempted to just bled it marked but last time I did that, the bleeder valve broke off and that's how all this started. I will admit though, it was totally my fault. I tightened up the valve and then I thought, "Der, maybe I should tighten it more. Uhdoy", so I gave it another crank, and bam!
