92 Eagle Talon Clutch pedal won't return fully

Does anyone have information about what type of clutch linkage this vehicle uses and ideas for troubleshooting/ fixing ?  
The car has sat for a number of years and been driven short distances a few times during that span.  Then I noticed the clutch pedal got quite a bit stiffer one time and then the next time it went to the floor and won't return fully.    Thanks- Mike

    i have the same problem, but i found out the solution. i have a 1990 tsi, and the pedal only returns half way and has 3 n a half inches of freeplay. now check under the dash and make sure the c. master cylinder rod is moving when you depress the clutch. on mine the pedal conection to the shaft, is stripped or broken, and only starts pushing the rod about half ways down and the adjuster rod is fully adjusted outward already. and the spring is missing under the dash, connected to the pedal. the shaft connected to the pedal is probably stripped or possibly broken. sounds stupid but thats my problem on my current talon, this is what i found.

Fill your clutch fluid, it tells you what kind of brake fluid to use on the cap, and then bleed your clutch system as you would your brakes, the bleeder is located on the slave cylinder i believe

Its not linkage.. its a hydrolic clutch.
I had my pedal go out one time, but it was a slave cylinder. Check your master, slave and fluids.

Clutch pedal goes to the floor and wont come back up unless i pull it up

Hello Mr. Hopkinson! Not knowing what vehicle you are having trouble with or any other information on how it is driving, I can only offer some ideas. If you have an older vehicle with a mechanical clutch and the pedal stays up when you pull it up, it tells me that the return spring is present and still has enough strength to hold the weight of the pedal. I can only suggest at this point to inspect the return spring, the area on the floor board around the clutch pedal and the linkage from the pedal to the transmission. Make sure the spring hasn't sprung, there are no obstructions and/or damaged linkage.

If your vehicle is newer, using a hydraulic system, you most likely are low on fluid. It isn't a bad idea either way to take a quick look at the components for your own knowledge and safety. By doing so you will know if there is an external leak or if there is more work to come.

I hope this helps.

I bought a 95 eagle talon and the clutch pedal goes to the floor and stays on the floor, I put the tranny in 1st gear to see if the clutch would disengage the drive but no luck, I topped off the fluid with...

there's also a clutch slave solenoid which typically sits on the firewall,. it's sort of like a booster to the clutch and would cause the problem you are experiencing... to locate, find your booster and follow the lines...
Best regards

New performance clutch, new slave cylinder and master slave wont go in gear, and when in gear and pressing clutch vehicle wants to go

You may not have got all of the air out of the clutch line Try bleeding it again. The sequence is as follows:
1. Start with the Master Cylinder full of fluid. (Don’t forget to check after a few bleeds that it stays above ¼ full so that you don’t introduce more air into the line).
2. Have an assistant pump the clutch pedal 2 or 3 times, then hold down.
3. Loosen bleed nipple to release any air & fluid.
4. Tighten nipple. Assistant then lets clutch pedal return. It may be necessary to manually pull back pedal if it does not return by itself.
5. Wait a few seconds then repeat the sequence from #2.
Bleeding is complete when no more air bubbles are visible in the fluid released from the bleed nipple. It also helps if you have a length of clear plastic tubing that fits securely over the bleed nipple which makes it easier to see if there are any air bubbles.

Clutch reservoir is dry on my daughters 96 Eagle Talon the car will not go into any gear.How do I flush the reservoir?If I add oil could this solve the problem

Do not put oil in this system.It uses brake fluid in the reservoir.If the system doesn't have any fluid in it, there is a leak, and both the clutch master cyl and the clutch slave should be replaced. They both were used the same amount of times, and wear evenly. When you add fluid, the clutch master cyl compresses the fluid down the line/hose into the clutch slave cyl. This depresses the clutch fork/arm and disengages the clutch disc so the input shaft into the transmission stops moving, allowing the trans to be put into gear. LOOK FOR THE FLUID LEAKING TO ISOLATE THE PROBLEM. This is a closed system, and the fluid never gets used, unless there is a leak.

Nothing happens when key is turned and clutch is down, no clicking, no lights, battery is fully charged and terminals are tight. 1994 eagle talon fwd 5 speed 1.8L

Sounds to me like the ignition module went out. I would test the ignition module, then I would test the clutch safety switch. If these test out fine I would test the starter and replace it if it is suspected to be bad.

No lights really seems like the battery might be dead, or a fuse is blown. Check the main and alt. fuses.

When I start my car there is a chatery kind of noise and when I push the clutch pedal down it stops the bad sound. The car is a 97 eagle talon turbo

sounds like the clutch "throw-out bearing" the bad news is the trans must be pulled back to access it ... let it go until it goes
