Unfortunately if the clutch pack has failed there is really no option but to remove the transmission.

Sounds like your clutch slave cylinder is bad,it's bolted on the side of the transmission with a hydraulic hose connected to it,2 bolts hold it on,need to drain fluid first.Here's a Autozone repair guide on replacing your clutch slave cylinder,first check your clutch fluid reservoir,if low or empty,then it's the slave cylinder.it's located in the right corner under the hood,it uses brake fluid.if your broke down,you can add fluid and bleed it and it will work for awhile,mine went out at work one day,just added brake fluid and bled it and made it home.

How to install a clutch kit on my 1994 mitsubishi mighty max


Disconnect the battery, disconnect the Hydraulic Line from the Slave Cylinder, Remove the Starter (2 bolts, 2 wires. Bolts are 14mm, 1 wire is 12mm, 1 plugs in), Remove the Driveshaft(s) (4 12mm bolts) Remove the 6 bolts from the bellhousing (4 are 14mm, 2 are 10mm)
Remove the bolt from the Transfer Case Mount, 12mm (only if it's a 4WD, if it's 2WD this doesn't apply), remove the 2 bolts that hold the Transmission Mount to the Crossmember (12mm or 14mm, it varies)
Slide the transmission back on the crossmember, away from the engine, I recommend running a ratchet strap across the frame to balance the transmission.
Remove the Pressure Plate from the Flywheel (Six 10mm bolts), Inspect the Pilot Bearing (if it needs replaced, you'll need to remove the Flywheel which is held on with six 18mm bolts, drive out the old bearing and drive in the new one, reinstall the flywheel, using Threadlocker on the bolts, torque the bolts to 100 ft lbs) Install the new clutch disc and Pressure Plate, with the centering tool inserted through the disc into the pilot bearing. Use thread locker on the pressure plate bolts and torque them to 20 ft lbs. Remove the centering/alignment tool after you've bolted it together
Remove old Throw Out bearing from input shaft on the transmission and slide the new one on. Slide the Transmission forward (make sure the input shaft slides into the pilot bearing, don't force the transmission into place or you could damage the clutch disc or break the input shaft) Torque the Bellhousing Bolts to 40 ft lbs (4 14mm bolts), Torque the 2 10mm bolts to 14 ft lbs, Install the Starter (torque bolts to 23 ft lbs), Reconnect Hydraulic Line to Slave Cylinder. Torque Transmission Mount Bolts to 30 ft lbs.
Reinstall Driveshafts, torque bolts on flange/yoke to 40 ft lbs. Fill Clutch Master Cylinder with DOT-3 Brake & Clutch Fluid, Open Bleeder Screw on Slave Cylinder and bleed the air out of the system, close bleeder screw.
Reconnect the wires to the Starter, Reconnect the battery.

Where can I find the hydrolic clucth resivoir and why would it be empty. Daughters car she is in Illinois and me Florida. Not much help from here but can let her know where to look for sure?


There should be a small cup size reservoir on the fender strut tower. Looks like thing in upper right corner of below picture. What usually happens to hydraulic clutches when they draw air, it the slave cylinder on the side of the transmission leaks and must be replaced. The system can then be bled of air and proper clutch operation restored. It would be difficult to restore clutch operation just by refilling the reservoir, especially with such a small reservoir. If it is necessary to get the car moving to get it repaired (slave cylinder replacement is a big job on this car, as the transmission must be removed), one could bleed the system with the bad slave cylinder and then drive a short distance. The clutch will likely fail again after about 100 or so cycles of the pedal. I will paste the bleed instructions below. These require someone to get under the car to open the slave bleeder. If you have more questions, please let me know.

Bleeding The Hydraulic System

Note: brake fluid is corrosive--please wipe any spilled fluid from painted or metal surfaces.
Manual Bleeding

  1. Fill the clutch reservoir with brake fluid. Check the reservoir level frequently and add fluid as needed.
  2. Connect one end of a vinyl tube to the bleeder plug on the slave cylinder and submerge the other end into a clear container half-filled with clean brake fluid.
  3. Slowly pump the clutch pedal 10-15 times without bring the pedal the full way up.
  4. Repeat Steps 2 and 3 until all of the air bubbles are removed from the system.
  5. Tighten the bleeder screw to 62 inch lbs. (7 Nm).
  6. Refill the master cylinder to the proper level.

Replacing the clutch slave cylinder:


Removal & Installation Before servicing any vehicle, please be sure to read the precautions section, which deals with personal safety, prevention of component damage, and important points to take into consideration when servicing a motor vehicle.

  1. Disconnect the clutch master cylinder line from the transaxle by removing the C-clip.
  2. Remove the transaxle.
  3. Remove the clutch actuator cylinder bolts from the transaxle.
  4. Remove the clutch actuator cylinder.

To install:


NOTE Excessive amounts of lubricant on the input shaft splines can contaminate the clutch disc and cause clutch shudder.

  1. Lightly lubricate the inside diameter of the bearing with input shaft lubricant P/N 21005995 or equivalent.
  2. Install the clutch actuator cylinder (1) to the transaxle.
  3. Install the clutch actuator cylinder bolts.
  4. Tighten the bolts to 89 inch lbs. (10 Nm).
  5. Install the transaxle.
  6. Connect the clutch master cylinder line to the transaxle by pushing it in until it seats.
  7. Bleed the clutch hydraulic system.

Slave cylinder leaks


Remove the bolts holding the slave cylinder to the transmission. Disconnect the hydraulic hose. Reconnect hydraulic hose to new slave cylinder, and install the slave cylinder in it's original position.

Now proceed to bleed the line through the slave cylinder until a solid stream of fluid comes through, and the pedal pressure becomes firm.

My car sat for about 5 months in the yard. Clutch and transmission are new rebuilt. Went to move the car clutch went to the floor and stayed there. What can I do?


Sounds like you either need to bleed the clutch slave cylinder, or you need to rebuild or replace the clutch master cylinder and slave cylinder. You might want to check with the shop that replaced the clutch and rebuilt the transmission. It may be covered under their warrantee.

Change transmission instructions


this is for rear wheel drive only front wheel drives require removing axle shat and dropping tie rod end and lower ball joint to get tranny out. If you start this I will give tork setting when I know what you have as it is a lot of work to type this out.

First disconnect the battery, inside the cab pull shifter boot off and remove snap ring to remove shifter, next get a block to go under engine remove drive line bolts and be sure E-brake is set and block the wheels, next put bolts from driveline into the read differential in order so you will be able to find them next disconnect the two starter bolts from the starter and tie starter up as not to allow the starter weight to hang on the wires. Remove two bolts holding slave cylinder on let hang off the side do not lose the shaft out of slave. Next remove the transmission mount bolt out next pull four bolts out of transmission cross member, next remove 5 bolts out of bell housing now get a baggie and a couple of rubber bands and pull drive shaft slide baggie over the transmission tail shaft and put on rubber band on bag to keep from losing fluid move drive shaft out of the way. Next disconnect the Speedo cable and wiring harness the reverse switch is at the top so will have to drop the tranny down to keep from breaking wire. Once you have a gap between the transmission and engine put block under back of engine slide the transmission out let the front drop down then lift up on rear of transmission and slide the cross member out of the way. Next slide tranny out of the way next remove the 6 bolts on the clutch assembly turning each bolt 1 and a ½ turns each till clutch is loose remove the clutch pressure plate and the throw out bearing, remove flywheel take to machine shop and have surfaced, replace the clutch plate pressure plate and the throw out bearing reinstall in reverse if you see any oil leaks replace seals, also replace rear transmission seal now if you don’t it will leak next after it is back together be sure you put new fluid in the transmission and bleed the slave cylinder.
