How to Adjust the Clutch in a Chevy Camaro


Chevy Camaros have their fans, but there are many instances of clutch problems-especially the infamous "sticky clutch." Fortunately, there is more than one way to correct this problem and these solutions are something that you can do yourself.

Things You'll Need

  • DOT 4 brake fluid (for clutch reservoir)
  • Drill and 1/8 inch drill bit
  • Check to see whether you need to change the clutch fluid in your reservoir. A Camaro uses DOT 3 which emits steam or gas that will cause the hydraulic system to malfunction after it's compressed. Replace the fluid with DOT 4 brake fluid because it has a higher boiling point.

  • Remove the hydraulic line from the master cylinder and expand the hole in the brass fitting on the braided steel line. Use a 1/8 inch drill bit, and carefully advance and retreat with the drill. Remove any metal filings until you have lessened the restriction. You might have to drill about an inch or so. Make sure you don't drill through the line as you do this adjustment.

  • Replace the master cylinder for the clutch if no other adjustments work. Replacing the slave cylinder and the assembly for the clutch may also resolve the clutch problems.
