Check your fluid in the reservoir under the hood, on the firewall, make sure it's not low. If level is ok the pedal should be adjusted, and if that doesn't fix it, U will need a new clutch most likely. Try the fixes in this order, The 1st may do it. Let me know what u find. good luck! countrycurt0

Hi,2002 cavalier now the clutch pedal goes in to start the vehicle and once the pedal is released all the way car barely moves. i thought the slave or master cylinder could be shot

I would think that the clutch itself is shot. If it was the slave cylinder or the master cylinder, you would not be able to get the car into gear when the engine is running. If it goes into gear fine, but just doesn't want to means your clutch is not griping.

1999 pontiac sunfire clutch pedal stays down

The hydraulic clutch works much like the brake system, there is a master cylinder with a piston and spring that should keep the pedal up.
You may have to take the clutch master cyl off and inspect the internal parts.

I have a 77 Toyota PU. New Clutch installed. Slave and throughout adjusted properly. Adjustment under dash adjusted full out. Still I have to jam the clutch all the way to the floor and barely able to get...

if it worked good before the clutch kit was installed , but not after then the clutch installation is incorrect
probably find the the clutch plate has been installed incorrectly
with a correctly fitted clutch kit , there is no necessity to change pedal height or anything else

Is clutch adjustable? Engine revs,but barely moves

it's not if you have hydraulic system.
check to see if the clutch pedal is firm and has pressure
start your engine, depress the clutch pedal and put it in gear
if it goes in gear easily and the car won't move then you need clutch

Problem going into gear

Your clutch system works the same as brakes do. The necessity to bleed tells you that there is a malfunction permitting air into the system. Check where the pedal rod goes into the firewall under the dash, the line itself, and the slave unit (some are inside the bellhousing...look for fluid dripping from bottom to verify if leaking) Not unlike brake master, they can also internally bypass. If you find no leaks, change master. Bleed system and you should be fine

Clutch not working

You will need to replace the clutch cable, it goes from the top of the clutch pedal to the top of the transmission.
