Okay so I was driving around and decided to get on it and when I went to shift hard to 2nd and she wouldn't go in gear. I thought I just missed shift, but I never do. After that happend she wouldn't go into gear. I pumped the clutch pedal a few times then she went into gear finally. Ever since that happend, it's kind of rough to go into gears unless I'm shifting at low rpms then it shifts fine in all gears. It's even harder to downshift unless I'm going real slow and pump the clutch. The clutch feels still good and grabs good. I changed out the slave cylinder and bleed it numerous times, but same results. Tranny fluid and level checked good. I don't hear any weird noises either. My buddy told me to try and new clutch master cylinder. What do you guys suggest? Oh my car is a 99 gsr teg with jdm gsr swap.

Sounds like the clutch master cylinder.

Well since I went through this same thing about two months ago, I'll break the bad news to you. You can check around where the master cylinder attaches at the firewall for fluid leaks, which is a sure sign it's bad. Otherwise, I'd go ahead and replace it anyway since it's your cheapest fix as of right now. But it very well could be your clutch disc going bad..not because it's worn down, but because one of the springs is falling out (as long as it's a sprung clutch). I had the exact same problem as you and changed the master cylinder, slave cylinder, bled the system numerous times, and replaced the tranny fluid. But it all came down to having to drop the tranny and replace the clutch (when I took the old clutch disc out, two pieces were actually broken off the clutch and two springs were coming out). Good luck, and hopefully it turns out to be the master cylinder.

I had to replace my clutch when this happened as well. Eventually it got to the point where I would push in my clutch pedal and nothing would happen, I couldn't shift, and even starting the car it would lurch forward because the clutch wasn't disengaging. Now, I'm not saying this is for sure the problem, but where it happened so unexpectedly it leads me to believe that a new clutch is in your future. You didn't mention how many miles were on the car, or clutch if they're different?

Yeah, if you powershift and drive like that often, it'll kill your clutch AND your tranny.

Unless your synchros are bad, it's your clutch master cylinder.

That's if your clutch is still good as well as the slave, flywheel, pressure plate, etc.

Yea I have changed the slave cylinder and bled the fluid numerous times, and still same results. Goes into gears smoothe only when I'm shifting at low rpms or if I rev up alil. Majority of you guys on here and Honda-Tech say its the clutch disc. There are no leaks from the master cylinder, so I'm leaning towards broken spring from the clutch disc and also people are saying it could be a bad pressure plate or piece of metal broken off of it?

Transmission shifted perfect and still does (well at low rpms) so I hope it's the clutch disc.
