SOURCE: clutch pedal loses pressure. I keep adding brake

the throw out bearing is consolidated with the slave cylinder. That part will needed to be replaced if you are loosing your fluid all the time. The whole trns will needed to be removed so I would change evrything such as the clutch plate, pressure plate, and the pilot bearing as well. This is recommended if you do alot of shifting (city driving) with 80,000 miles or more on it.
If leaking you should show the leak between the engine and trans. If not the line could have a crack in it so I would investigate first where the leak is at. If between the engine and trans it is a bad throwout bearing

SOURCE: 2003 Cavalier clutch loses pressure

This is a tricky problem, but there IS a solution.
Get a mini hand Vac, most often referred to as the Miti Mini hand vac. Place the round suction cup on the end of the hose and place this inside your clutch master cylinder. With the master topped off, and the minivac in place, begin vacuuming your system to about 30lbs. Be sure that the little canister included with the vac is in place to catch the fluid as it vacuums, and you will see those nasty bubbles rise to the surface. WAIT for those bubbles to creep into the little canister and dissappear then push the release button. Do this several times till the bubbles are all gone. You will then have a completely clean, swept and sealed air free system.

SOURCE: Clutch pedal loses pressure while depressing,

Either your master cylinder is going ( I had the same problem on my F350 truck) or there is still a small amount of air in the system. As long as the air bubble are dispersed like when the pedal is pumped, it will most likely work. The solution is to properly bleed the system. The easiest is to borrow a vacum pump and **** a few oz of fluid through the bleed screw. The second best requires two people. Have someone sit in the drivers seat and as you open the screw have them press the pedal to the floor holding it there till you retighten the screw. Do this 10 or twelve times making sure you always have fluid in the resevoir. This will push all air out of the system.

I have a 2006 volvo 2.0 d we recently replaced cutch kit but the clutch is sticky and its losing fluid

If the clutch is engaging while you are pressing the pedal and you are losing fluid either the clutch master cylinder or the clutch slave cylinder is bad. If the fluid is leaking from the firewall on the drivers side its the clutch master cylinder. If the fluid is leaking from the transmission area its the slave cylinder.

Bled the clutch, happens lots of city driving, squeaks, then clutch pedal loses pressure, then comes back, fluid stays at same level.

If fluid level is full and there are no leaks, the most likely problem would be an internal clutch master cylinder issue. The internal seals of this cylinder may be causing a by-pass of the fluid causing a pedal/no pedal operation

Soft clutch

bleed slave cylinder of air. to do this let someone pressdown and hold on the clutch pedal, open bleeder screw let air escape close bleeder screw release clutch pedal, do this until a solid stream of fluid comes out of bleeder screw always close bleeder screw before releasing clutch pedal to avoid sucking in air into the cylinder. be sure you dont run out of fluid in the reservoir. and fill to max when done

How to adjust 98 ford explorer clutch play?

the clutch has no adjustment. the clutch is a hydraulic clutch,if you have a low clutch release then you may want to check the fluid in the reservoir on the left side of the engine compartment near the brake master cylinder. the clutch uses DOT 3 brake fluid.

I have a 89 toyota pickup 4 speed. When I'm stopped at a stop light, and let out on the clutch it seems like it has lost pressure. When I'm shifting down the road it shifts fine. I checked the fluid and it...

this sounds like the clutch slave is goin out, this unit is on the outside of the transmission. Possibly losing pressure!! Your transmission does not use transmission fluid, but instead gear oil. Have the following checked:
1. Clutch Slave (possibly worn)-this will cause soft or hard clutch pedal feel, slipping clutch, unintended clutch release, hard gear engagement, no/insufficient clutch movement.

*2. Clutch pedal Mounting Plate (possibly cracked)-this will cause improper gear engagement, hard gear engagement, soft pedal feel, insufficient clutch movement.

*this plate is located above the clutch pedal itself, apply pressure on the pedal with one hand while inspecting the plate for fatigue cracks(use a bright flashlight). This is very common on these models. This problem will eventually get worst and most mechanics never figure this out.

!991 Jeep Wrangler clutch pedal loses pressure. I have to pump it to get enough pressure to shift. I keep it full of brake fluid. I can see no leaks. Thanks for any help.

leaky slave or master cylinder - if you have someone listen to the slave cylinder while you press the pedal is should "squelch" if there is air in there, if the slave cylinder doesn't make a squelching sound then the master cylinder or a hydraulic line between the two cylinders is leaking - slave cylinder isn't very expensive but the master cylinder can be rather pricey. and any good parts shop or motor-factor can source or make-up a new hydraulic line if it is the line itself that is leaking.
