Losing Pressure in Clutch is a Common Problem. Dodge Dart.
For anyone who knows a manual transmission Dodge Dart owner: A sticking clutch means you need a Master Cylinder. Even if it hasn't happen to you yet, hurry to your dealer and tell them that, and you can do your own the research to see that this is impacting hundreds of manual Darts across the country. I had a couple of incidents where there was no pressure in the clutch while I was trying to start it, and got nothing when turning the key, and then after a few tries it started and ran fine. I mentioned it to the dealer but they could not replicate it. Then a few weeks ago I was pulling out of a parking lot and the clutch went right to the floor and would not come back up. I had to pull it up with my toe. I took it right to the dealer and then looked it up, finding it a common complaint. Even though I am a few thousand miles past warranty, the dealer covered it and replaced the Master Cylinder, though it took a few weeks to get the part. They told me that a few hundred Dart owners have had this problem, and local customers were starting to report it. Do not drive the car with the clutch sticking, it could be dangerous. This should be an official recall--Chrysler should cover this problem and provide you with a vehicle while it is being fixed--we should contact Chrysler and ask that they do so, but to date it is not part of an official recall.
