SOURCE: nissan clutch problem

If your not able to shift into any gear that means your clutch is not engage/disengaging. Check for fluid leaks, you said topped off and fluid levels were low? It sounds like you have a Slave cylinder or master cylinder leak, if its leaking its bet to replace both.

yes, Briong the pedal up where it belongs, then open an fill your master cylider. Then go below and open the bleeder intil the fluid runs/drips steady and free of any bubbles. Do not pump the pedal. When only fluid comes out, tighten/close the bleeder and give it a try. Good Luck. If peal dives again, replace the master cylinder.

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.

Why is my clutch sticking to the floor and why won't it shift into gear when the car is on?


Ok Matt,I got you covered,when your clutch master cylinder goes empty,your clutch slave is leaking and not holding pressure,you can fill reservoir and bleed to get you home,I've did it in my 85 nissan 720 4x4 before,you can have someone pump clutch pedal a few times and hold to floor and you open bleeder valve at slave cylinder till air is gone,just don't let resevoir get low.Here is a link to bleeding,your slave cylinder is bolted to side of transmission with 2 bolts.Be careful and don't strip bleeder screw,you can get part at Autozone,also get dot 3 brake fluid,this autozone iis not showing a guide to replace,here's one from a 85 nissan,very similar.

2008 hyundai accent clutch slipping, i think?


seems a bit early for clutch. how many k's? I would start by checking the intake tube for splits & security & airflow sensor. they will cause the engine to rev but no response (like a slipping clutch) so its manual right?

How do I fill up the clutch fluid resevoir?


If your clutch pedal doesn't quite have the pressure it used to, or your clutch fluid just looks old and dirty, it may be time to bleed and/or replace the clutch fluid.
Items needed:

8mm open or box end wrench
Clear tube (1/4" ID)
One bottle DOT3/DOT4 brake fluid (doesn't have to be full)
A friend to press the clutch pedal for you

Locate the bleeder valve on the clutch slave cylinder.

qk2cpkiyfjgaaaaasuvork5cyii=Use your 8mm wrench to open the valve one full turn, don't remove it.

Stick your hose over the bleeder valve and have it drop off into a container.
lpd+ipdyjdaaaaaasuvork5cyii=Be sure to check the clutch fluid level before bleeding the system, you don't want to let it get below the MIN line.

Have your friend pump the clutch pedal to start removing the fluid. Don't be con if they tell you the pedal went down to floor and won't come back up on it's own, that's normal. They'll just have to wedge it back up with their foot.

NOTE: When bleeding the system, make sure the cap is ON or you will just be sucking in air

Refill the clutch fluid as necessary to keep it above the MIN line. Since the clutch fluid reservoir is very small you'll have to keep a close eye on it.
zepo2bz1de6vgaaaabjru5erkjggg==I just had some extra ATE brake fluid left over from my brake fluid change so I decided to just use it since it is a DOT3/DOT4 fluid. But high performance fluids are not necessary for the clutch fluid so you can just use regular cheap DOT3 or DOT4 fluid and it won't make a difference.

When you see the fluid in the hose change completely from the old color to the new color then you know the system has been flushed and is now full of new clutch fluid. Have your friend do one l press of the clutch pedal and tighten the bleeder valve once the pedal hits the floor. Since you can't use a torque wrench on the bleeder valve, it's important to note it does not need to be very tight so don't try overtightening it and just snug it up with your wrench.

Pump the clutch pedal again and the pressure should return. And that's all, you're finished.

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 quit working while I was driving. It goes completely to the floor & now won't go into gear. What does that sound like happened ? Pls help I'm a women w/ no family alive


Check around the clutch master cylinder for leaks. Sometimes all it needs is a few seals and it's good to go. make sure the clutch slave cylinder is full off fluid.
If you still have fluid in the system when you apply pressure to clutch, fluid will come out where the line is damaged.
Another possibility could be that the reservoir may be out of fluid (which means you have a leak that needs fixing). Some more uncommon things that can happen is having a broken clutch release bearing or fork or release cable. just my opinion, get it looked at by a garage or friend that is a mechanic or knows cars. because if you take it to the dealer it usually will be a big ripoff in $$$. good-luck and may god bless !
