    I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM BUT IT MAY BE JUST AIR LOCKED .
    EITHER THE MASTER CYLINDER OR THE SLAVE CYLINDER LEAKING.
    IF IT IS THE SLAVE CHECK IF ANY PATCHES ON GROUND WHEN PARKED UP IT IS PROBABLY A SEAL

Fiesta 1400 2 door clutch pedal pushed to floor and hydraulic fluid poured out. Coming from bell housing clutch to engine. Very big job to fix? Remove motor etc?


It is the slave cylinder inside the bell housing. These are notorious in going out and it looks to be quite entailed. I found a video on it but it only shows how to replace the slave cylinder AFTER the bell housing has been removed.

You will need an 8mm, long barrel, socket plus an extension( to keep from busting up the knuckles) to remove three bolts that holds the slave cylinder to the wall of the bell housing. Once the old one is removed, get some bearing grease and grease down the shaft. this will allow for an easier mount and get it ready to have the bell housing re-assembled.

Here's the link, though it the music is kinda creepy....

On a 2000 Ford Focus my clutch is stuck in the pedal won't go down


The focus clutch system is hydraulic therefor, if no movement is possible at all it is most likely that there is something at the pedal causing this. Get down there with a good light and look if the pedal swivel pin did not come out or is partially out, a foreign object that got stuck in the top movement area of the pedal ect. If there is nothing found it can be the clutch master cylinder that need repair/ overhaul.

Why cant my 2005 dodge stratuss pick up speed when i press on gas pedal


Sounds like a transmission problem, specifically that perhaps the transmission fluid is low if your truck has an automatic transmission, or the clutch is slipping terribly if it has a manual transmission.
- You need to include this information on such questions.

Ford Bantam rocam Clutch: How do I bleed the clutch?


Clutch bleeding on hydraulic slave cylinders are done in the exact same method as regular hydraulic brakes. If the slave cylinder has a separate reservoir, make sure it is above "MINIMUM" at all times. If it does not have a separate reservoir, then it works together with the master cylinder for the brakes, make sure that one is above minimum too. Pump the clutch pedal a couple of times (note you will rarely feel any resistance in the pedal), hold the pedal down, and have someone open the bleeder valve on the slave cylinder. Close it when no more fluid comes out with pressure, then rinse and repeat until the clutch pedal feels ok.

The clutch pedal on my 2000 Ford Focus ZTS broke. It seems the pedal itself is not connected to the clutch anymore. Only the pedal spring brings back up the pedal. I therefore cannot shift gears. The rest...


That car has a hydraulic actuated clutch so it could just be low on clutch fluid or one of the pipes going from the pedal to the clutch could be burst.
