Good. Help. What do you need from me? And who is we? And do you think it was normal for your clutch to stick? Because If nobody can accelerate hard in a Camaro SS then I guess its time to get a GT or Challenger. And that is very very hard for me to say I was born in a UAW GM house and have never had anything but and my dad will probebly roll over in is grave. I drove my friends GT last weekend just like I drive my Camaro and not a problem except for burnt rubber. He drove mine like he does his and stuck clutch. I thought I bought a sports car that was made to accelerate hard. But I guess what you see is not what you get.

Mike #A9198969, 8000 miles. Owned 8 vehicles with a stick over the past 28 years.

1. Inconsistent clutch engagement, mostly at the very top
2. Clutch feels like it doesn't fully engage going into second
3. Herky jerky cold start in first gear
4. Clutch burning smell starting on a mild incline (never happened in other cars)
5. Never drove this car hard. GM can download my driving habits thru Onstar
6. Smooth launch difficult at any RPM
7. Improper pedal feel, no breaking point, no clutch pedal play at the top when you first step on the pedal.

**Note, I took delivery right from the car hauler. Only assemby line worker, car hauler guy and my salesman drove the car. Salesman got gas next door. No one took my car for any test drives etc.

It's a normal issue in Corvettes, from what we know. If you want another car, no one is stopping you.
Try changing your reservoir fluid and bleeding the clutch a few times.


and by we, I mean us, the moderators, the ones that are asking questions and being attacked for it.

I guess it would be pointless to bleed everything right now since my new master cylinder cap has not come in yet which is leaking like crazy. And have been told by alot of people that that could definently cause my problem. Creates a nice hydro static lock. Kinda like a hydrolic hose on a back hoe put a hole in it and see what happens. But the dealer dont see it that way. And the 800# is not much help either.

I have some similar issues. VIN A9189529. Less than 500 miles. Haven't driven a stick in about 10 years so I thought I lost my touch until my cousin drove it (he drives stick daily) and said the pedal was too high and then couldn't find a consistent shift point.

1. Inconsistent clutch engagement, mostly at the very top
2. Clutch feels like it doesn't fully engage going into second
3. Herky jerky cold start in first gear
4. Clutch burning smell from time to time
5. Never drove this car hard. GM can download my driving habits thru Onstar
6. Improper pedal feel, no breaking point, no clutch pedal play at the top when you first step on the pedal.
7. Hate the 1-4 auto shift feature when driving in the city. Feels too steep to be in fourth gear when only doing 20 mph.

2000 miles on the clock and clutch stuck this morning for the first (and hopefully last) time.
Have had some minor grinding issues too when changing gears.

I have had an issue since day one of owning the car. My first ride down the road I down shifted from 4th to 3rd and it stuck half way. Then after about 500 miles I noticed that going from 1st to second my clutch pedal would stop half way. I wasn't trying to do a hard launch, just normal every day shifting.
Then one day I was attempting to release the clutch pedal in 1st and it became stuck half way. The next thing that happened was a large amount of clutch smoke coming through the vents and dash board. The car was shut down and brought to the dealership and was told they couldn't find an issue.

I have now had my car to the local dealership 3 times for this issue, and on the last time the dealership said they were instructed by GM to not work on the car unless I could reproduce the problem with a tech in the car. I have been able to get it to do it for a brief second, but not like it has in the past. So now, I'm at a loss due to GM not wanting to address the issue.

How about pressure and the slave cylinder, neither of which has anything to do with the driver. Thanks anyway for your opinion, but this is for those who are seriously experiencing clutch problems due to manufacturer defects.
I'm just trying to help you out man. I personally think if a whole bunch of people rant on and on about how bad the clutch is in their car then I think it would be better if they said along side their rants that, "yes I know what I'm doing". I'm not making an accusation that "you" don't know how to drive. That was not my intent and I apologize if you thought it was. I am trying to help "YOU" make "your" thread statistics look more concrete with GM.

Also, you asked for information on any clutch problem. Not ONLY the Hydraulic issue. And some clutch problems can be caused by "the driver" 5 miles from the dealer they bought the car from. So

Well, I am thinking, the next time my clutch sticks, either to the floor or 1/2 way, I am shutting the car down and having it towed to the dealer AS IS. This way they can see the condition it is in. However, I can say, since I had the break/clutch fluid cap replaced, it has not happened. I am not getting any burning clutch smell, however, the HERKY JERKY is really bad when cold and always occurs even after car is warmed up, 4th gear running about 45-40 decellerating, which is about 1800-2000RPMS ....The kids in the back seat complained yesterday, "Stop rocking the car". It's really bad.

Its cool. I understand the driver can cause a problem. But those people who have never drove a clutch usually kill it, slip it kinda like we all did the first time we drove one. And I dont ever remember the clutch pedal sticking.

Clutch pedal sticks 1/2 way down on an agressive launch (& smokes clutch).

Trans refuses to shift to second above 5000 RPM (just grinds, probably due to a warped clutch disc or worn throwout bearing/actuator).

Drive it in there. As soon as it cools down that pedal will come back where it should be. At least mine always does. There is a hydrolic issue and your cap is proving what I have been told. I have friends that build race cars for a living at Jerry Bickel that made the front page of camaro 5 a couple of days ago. They want to tear into it but Im affraid to let them. If all else fails that is what is going to happen new clutch, seperate resevoir and everything and just void the warranty.
