We just had a replacement used manual transmission installed into this along with new clutch kit. Transmission was replaced due to input shaft splines compromised / apparent former abuse.

The car drove fine after the repair. The car sat over 3 weeks then my daughter tried to drive it and she claimed it would not go into gear. I checked the car and noticed the clutch pedal was initially low to the floor. I pulled on the clutch pedal with my hand then the pedal kept firm after that. Car went into all gears and seemed to drive fine.

My mechanic says the clutch may need to be bled again. Not knowing anything about clutches, does this sound normal?

Thanks!

Probably it was incorrectly bled. The slave cylinder is hard to bleed in my opinion.
But I'm pretty sure you have air in the clutch hydraulic system.
The Slave Cylinder and the Master Cylinder have independent bleeders, they both need to be bleed

You'll need this CLUTCH section of the FSM.

bleeding is on Page 6. I hope it's just some air and not a leak... Let us know what you find.
