    my car is not changing gears correctly. it tends to go past 5000 rpms and im not going more than 20-30 mpr and then it will tug the car when it changes gear to the next gear.

How much did you add ? lok for leaks around the master and slave cylinder, the slave will leak but the master probably wont as it has a seal to stop fluid leaks but not air leaks should the main fluid seals fail , this is to stop leaks on the carpet in the car , if their isnt any leaks then i would be getting a master cylinder repair kit or a decent used master cylinder, (now dont go buying second hand brake parts if a simmilar problem accours with the brakes , only fit new parts on the braking system

Hydraulic clutch problem


brake fluid goes in the reservoir on top of the clutch master cylinder. If there is no reservoir check for a line to the brake master cylinder reservoir as some cars use the brake master cylinder reservoir as a common unit . Check that that reservoir is full. Bleed out the slave cylinder to remove air in the system.

Ford transit 52 plate clutch pedal goes soft then csnt change gear then pump pedal pedal goes back to normal drive for a short while then clutch pedal goes soft again and just repeats as above just bought...


The clutch hydraulic system has a problem-either the clutch master cylinder or the slave cylinder on the bell housing may be at fault.

If the brake fluid is low in the clutch master cylinder reservoir, there may be a leak to the outside. Refill and check for leaks while someone pumps the clutch pedal. Check around the clutch master cylinder (also under the dash- if wet there around the top of the clutch pedal or if wet on the carpet below the pedal, the master cylinder is leaking.) Check the single line from the clutch master to the bell housing where the slave cylinder is. If no leaks found, likely the clutch master cylinder or the slave cylinder has failed internally.

Is it safe: there won't be any further damage caused by running it, but if shifting gets harder and harder to do, that may cause a driveability problem.

Clutch pedal goes almost to the floor before it engages


If your fluid was low (which is why you likely added some,) you may need to "bleed" your clutch master cylinder.

Clutch pedal has no pressure and goes straight to the floor when pressed. clutch disk is in good condition. parked the car the night before was working perfect. next morning no pressure and out of fluid....


Pump the clutch pedal and then check for leaks again, including under the dash where the rod from the pedal goes into the clutch master cylinder. Once you find the leak, replace what's leaking and bleed the system to restore the pressure (bleeds from the slave unit, just like bleeding brakes)

Its a 1989 nissan 240sx its out of fluid on the clutch resivor. will adding fluid bring the pedal back to operating?


If with brakes, your fluid is low, this is usually an indication you need to replace the pads/shoes or you have another problem, possibly a leak, the same goes for hydralic clutch systems. You should never have to add brake or clutch fluid.

You can add fluid the the clutch master cylinder but if it is completely empty you will probably need to bleed the slave cylinder. You need to check for any leaks and also you might be on the verge of a clutch replacement. I cant see the car so I am giving you general info.

Pedal goes all the way to floor and still in gear


YOUR CLUTCH IS NOT DISENGAGING. THERE COULD BE A PROBLEM WITH THE CLUTCH MASTER/SLAVE. CHECK FOR ACTION AT THE SLAVE. ALSO, A BROKEN PRESSURE PLATE SPRING OR THROW-OUT BEARING CAN KEEP THE CLUTCH ENGAGED ALL THE TIME.

Clutch pedal goes to floor


Its sounds like a bad clutch cylinder or bad slave cylinder or fluid leaking. First check brake fluid level in clutch master , and check for a leak in clutch system. If there are NO leaks, then you either have a bad clutch cylinder or a slave cylinder. Bleed clutch at bleeder screw on slave cylinder and make sure there is pressure from master cylinder. If there is pressure then slave cylinder may be bad replace slave and bleed and that should take care of you problem. If master is bad then replace bleed system ad you should be good. Contact if you need more help. Thanks for using FIX YA.

Soft/floppy clutch


This is probably a hydraulic clutch. check for fluid at the clutch master cylinder, if empty check for a leak at either master or slave cylinder (on the side of the transmission) if fluid is present in the reservoir try loosing the fitting on the slave and have an assistant pump the pedal while adding fluid ( this is called "bleeding", just like with a brake system). don't allow the master cyl. reservoir to run dry. Hope this helps
