Will replacing the clutch/brake fluid make the clutch pedal smoother? It's a little uncomfortable to operate

Replaced clutch master cylinder - won’t shift right unless I remove free play in pedal?

Sometimes there is confusion between pedal free play and free pedal travel. The pedal free play for your civic should be 1 to 3 mm. This is to assure that the pedal is not putting pressure on the ...
