    Today I notcied my clutch has lost a lot of pressure. I have a 93 civic hatchback cx 5speed. It is stock, definitely not a racer. When I push the clutch in, it takes about 70% of it's throw to engage. The first few times it kinda stayed down, then pushed back up. I drove it 3 miles into work, and it didn't change at all. Would bleeding it fix this? I know it's hard to diagnose over the internet, just wondering where I should start. Lateley I've also noticed I have a bad habit of leaving my foot on the clutch, puching it down maybe an inch or so. Not enough to engage it or see a difference in power, but thought maybe that info may help someone figure this out. Thanks in advance.

    Ur clutch is about to go. Go change it while u can still drive it, before u need to tow it to the mechanic.

    check your clutch fluid.
    alot of 92-00 civic clutch master cylinders develop leaks after a few years.

    could be the clutch master cylinder.could be a small hole in the line..could be you throwout bearing,could be your clutch disk dying..might also just be air in the system..bleed it out and check the cap for rips in the boot..
