Difficult shifting in certain 2008-2013 Mitsubishi Lancer compact cars has lead the automobile manufacturer to notify owners to take their vehicles in for repairs. The problem is being blamed on a failing clutch master cylinder and affects 10,474 cars manufactured between December 12, 2007, through March 5, 2013. (NHTSA Campaign Number: 13V-446)
The clutch master cylinder is found on any vehicle equipped with a manual transmission. When it fails, hydraulic pressure is lost making it difficult to shift. If you start to feel or hear something unusual when you shift gears or press your clutch pedal down, pay attention, it could mean there is a problem with your master cylinder. Some symptoms of a failing master cylinder include:
- Soft Clutch Pedal
- Hard shifting
- Low Transmission Fluid
- Noisy Clutch Engagement
- Oil On The Cylinder
