I did an intro in the Newbie intro thread. Anyway, I recently picked up an 03 WRX in Sedona Red Pearl (aw yeah). It has a few issues, one being the clutch is slipping. Well, I'm pulling the engine to replace the clutch, that way I can give it a good look over, get to know it and maybe replace some bits and pieces as preventative maintenance. Krazylegz was kind enough to give me a few things to look at but I kind of wanted to start this report on where I'm at and if I run into any other issues. If anyone else has any pointers I'm all ears. Timing kit was recently done and I've got new plugs. Once I figure out how to get my pics on here I'll add some of those too. One issue that it has though that I'm not too sure about is the clutch pedal sticks pretty bad. It'll depress (pretty soft) then either stick all the way down or half way up for a bit then spring back, or I'll pop it up with my toe. I was going to see if it still does this after replacing the clutch and bleeding the system but if anyone has any ideas before I get there I'd love to hear em. Wondering if it could be the slave cylinder and if I should just replace that while I'm in there or not bother unless it crops up after the clutch replacement. I'm not made of money so anything I don't have to spend on is a plus. I also noticed that I'm missing the little spring that goes from the clutch fork to a bracket on the front of the tranny. Not sure if that would affect the pedal return or not. Started in on the engine removal last night, got most of the way there and everything seems to be in pretty good order. Pretty clean and no big leaks that I can see at this point, that's always a good indication.
