The hydraulic clutch master cylinder is defective or the slave cylinder at the bell housing, it is recommended they replaced in pairs.

Will not go into gear


You may have to bleed the slave cylinder to get it to work. Bleed it just like brakes-pedal going to floor, open valve. Close valve, pump pedal and pedal to floor again with bleed valve open. When fluid comes out in steady stream with pedal pressed, done. Watch the plunger on the slave cylinder when clutch is pressed-it should move out to move the clutch lever.

The clutch pedal seems to be very flopy and is not going into gear easily


Can be broken spring on the cluch pedal in side the car, that hold the pedal all the way back for full amount of brake fluid to the slave cylender, can be checked by pulling the pedal all the way up before steping it to the floor and putting in to gear or just look up under the daschbord on the pedal. Can allso be to little brake fluid in container. To check the master cylender rubber, step on the pedal putt in gear with engine running and wait with pedal all the way to the floor, if the rubber is gone the car wil start to go after some time (1/2-1 min or less) To check the slave cylender rubber will be dune the same way and working same way but it will be leaking out and on the floor.

I have a 99 gmc sonoma that won't go into gear and there is no presure on the clutch pedal it goes straight to the floor but the fluid level is still on full and the fluid has some black looking gunk...


It is confirmed that the clutch hydraulics has faulted. Since there is no clutch the gear links are not engaged. Possible that the master cylinder has failed, possible a leak in the system.
You will need to overhaul this section and the pedal will respond.
Also check on the transmission fluid and the gear settings.

Clutch went to floor like nuthing was attached to it... runs fine just seems that the clutch pedal dont work or something it just floppy now...it happened when i was moving it in driveway was fine before...


There is a return spring that lifts the clutch pedal back to the original position. It seems that the clutch return spring has got disconnected. The pedal will do its job of disengaging the engine from the gear box, but will not offer any resistance to the foot and thus give an impression of doing nothing. So, that spring should be set right. For this the clutch housing will have to be opened and the spring reset.

Pedal is going to the floor and hard to put into gear.


you mean the clutch pedal? when asking questions it helps to tell which engine, trans, 4wd, 2wd, which pedal, what you have checked, ect......... ck the clutch fluid level ,you will need to replace the clutch master and slave cylinder, the trans will have to come out.

Clutch Pedal Very Soft


Air in the system. The shave is between the engine and trans and even a small leak won't show up. Look in the rubber piece on trans with a light and see if you see any fluid. If you see any then the slave is starting to fail.

I have a 94TR magna 4cyl 5 speed manual clutch pedal problem


prob has little to no clutch fluid, to check this open the bonnet, in the engine bay next to the brake master cylinder there is a round clutch master cylinder, unscrew the cap and topp it up with brake fluid.
If the system has run dry you may need to bleed the system, if not completly empty should be able to pump it a few times and will come good.
If this is the case there is a leak somewhere...
