I have problems getting my '76 280z in to gear while driving down the road, in cold weather. I live in Florida so we don't get that much cold weather. But last week we did. And I had a terrible time driving down US 19 in heavy traffic. I first noticed this while pulling out of my High school this winter on the few cold days we had. Mainly after I got my master cylinder changed.

The first thing I did was go to K-Mart and by a 32oz contaner of dot 3 barke fulid. Then I took a red shop rag and soped up all ofthe fluid out of the tank. Then refilled it. It still did it but when it got warmer it stoped. What is wrong. Please help
Thanx,
Tom

<b>RE: Clutch in cold weather</b>

You should replace the clutch slave cylinder whenever you replace or rebuild the master. It sounds like your clutch is not engaging fully.
Does the stiffness go away after you've driven awhile?

That DOT3 'barke' fluid is for the dogs! But seriously, the shop rag could leave lint, etc in your lines. Use a sponge or suction it out with a syringe.
