Question about 1989 Jeep Wrangler

1 Answer

No clutch resistance

When i drive my clutch pedal goes completely to the floor when i press on it without any resistance, making it almost impossible to shift gears. This happens 4 or 5 times each time i drive it. I have to pump on the clutch pedal numerous times before it returns to normal. Its a hydraulic clutch and i checked for fluid which there is plenty, i checked for leaks and did not find any. Do the hydraulics of a clutch operate by means of a master cylinder like that of the brakes, if so could a broken master cylinder be the problem? If not what could be the problem?

Thanks

Bill

You seem to have a damaged slave cylinder, just going off of previous experience. The master would normally leak . Good Luck

Clutch pedal sitting on floor/no return.


It may be the clutch assy. but before I did that I would check the cable out as it seems strange the pedal would stay on the floor even if the clutch went out. There should be a return spring on the pedal.

New clutch installed. No pedal, stays on floor unless I bring it back up with my hand. No resistance.


`Did it bleed, did fluid come out in a steady stream? Isn't there a spring to bring the pedal off the floor?
Check the linkage of the pedal to rod to the clutch master cylinder, make sure that is all together. Any chance the master has an internal leak and won't build hydraulic pressure down at the slave? If you get it bled, then watch the slave operation while someone works the clutch pedal. The piston on the slave should extend and push the clutch fork enough to disengage the clutch.

THE CLUTCH PEDAL AS LITTLE RESISTANCE WHEN PRESSED AND PEDAL STAYS ON FLOOR HAD NEW CLUTCH AND CABLE AND PLASTIC ON PEDAL


Have you bled the clutch system? Any leaks in the cylinder? I would try those first. Is the reservoir full of fluid? You can also adjust the nut on the cable to adjust the clutch linkage.

Clutch pedal goes to the floor on A6 2.8 P 1997


It's a hydraulic system on the Audi. Using a master cylinder (nearer pedal and firewall) and a slave cylinder (at clutch release bearing itself, or on side of tranny. Owner's manual should give location for a reservoir to check. Similar but smaller than brake master cylinder reservoir if that helps. The system uses brake fluid, and you either have a leak, a lack, or a loss of this fluid, and/or pressure to the clutch. Sounds like you need qualified service, these systems need REAL diagnosis before you start buying parts. ALso can be hard to bleed completely free of air after parts are installed.
