I assume that the clutch pedal is going all the way to the floor... First have you checked the reservoir?? or has it been filled lately???. If there is signs of fluid leaking then replace it , or if it has been messed with lately possible air in system and it can be bleed....But chances are if you think its shot it probably is...It is fairly easy to replace just make sure you flush fluid to insure no particles or water can have an adverse affect on new slave cylinder ...and once installed (2 bolts and 1 hydraulic line..) make sure it is bleed properly....Remember its a lot easier to replace the slave cylinder than to replace a clutch due to premature wear from faulty installation....Good Luck

Clutch has no pressure


If it has a hydrolic clutch, the slave cylinder may be bad. There may also be a leak in the system. There should be a seperate master cylinder for the clutch system if it has a hydrolic unit.

Clutch pedal just goes to floor in L200


check the fluid level in the slave cylinder, near the master cylinder where break fluid goes in, if it is empty, fill it with hydrolic fluid...you may have to bleed the lines at the tranny if you ran it out which it sounds like.

(trick) take the master cylinder for the clutch off the firewall and tilt forward while pumping the pistron by hand and bleeding those fords are notorious for air locking in the master cylinder due to the fact!! they fasten to the firewall at a backwards tilt!! i have done over 2700 of them in 45 years

clutch hydralics is gone, meaning you have a leak, check clutch master cylinder, see if its empty, if so refill and pump pedal sevarel time may have to lift by hand sometimes then look for a leak,most times it the slave cylinder,thats what pushs clutch fork to disengage clutch. hope this is helpful good luck.

Hyundai tucson clutch


Thank you for the request. Since the car only has 24,000 miles on it, I would take it back to the dealer. It does sound like that your clutch needs an adjustment of some type. Since I do not own a Hyundai I have no idea what the actual problem might be. I just did some research and found out that the clutch in your car is hydrolic (meaning that it uses a master and slave cylinder with hydrolic fluid to push the clutch arm when you push the clutch pedal with your foot). Trying to work on this type of clutch system can sometimes be a very hard to do. With the small amount of miles your car has on it, I would get the dealer involved in solving this problem. It could be something as simple as bleeding air from the hydrolic system of the clutch or it might be replacement of either the master cylinder, the slave cylinder and/or the fluid line that goes in between those two cylinders.

Much good luck in fixing this problem.
