This happened about a year ago and all we did was bleed the line. Last time though, i just pumped the clutch and it would pressurize long enough for me to get home. This time it wont pressurize when i pump. It will go into gear when the car is off, but not on. Pleaaase help me. Any other details just ask. People keep telling me slave cylinder, and if so, how hard is that to change yourself??

Having to pump the clutch means there is air in the system, caused by a leak. Now it appears nearly all the clutch fluid has gone.

The leak could be in either the master cylinder, slave cylinder, or a hole in the line between.

With the car the age it is, I would put an overhaul kit (rubbers etc) in both cylinders, and inspect the line inch by inch for signs of a hole. You should be able to also buy the cylinders complete if you want, say from eBay.

Although for a later model, this should assist you

Clutch pedal sticks on floor


on the bottom of the clutch housing there is a bleed nipple, like on the brakes, if you have pumped the clutch with out enough fluid in the brake receiver container you would of put air in the clutch system, you need to keep it topped up all the time so its at max. and bleed the clutch, you will need to lift the clutch pedal by hand up and down a few times to get the air out, its not assisted like the brakes so it will take a good few pumps and tightening the nippel when it feels pressure.

So I just changed the clutch master cylinder and the braided brake line in my 2000 camaro ss and am trying to bleed the system. The routine I'm using is typical. Pump the pedal 30 times keep it depres


you have someone helping you right? cuz you cant do it yourself, and the brakes need to be pumped only enough to get a solid midway stop of pedal travel, and with the brake still depressed by your assistant, you open the bleeder a bit until the pedal goes to the floor, you tighten bleeder, they then release brake pedal and pump it up again, rinse, repeat, until there is no spongy feel in brake pedal

I have no pressure in my clutch unless i sit there and pump the clutch. Then I have pressure but still cannot put the stick in gear. Then, the brake pedal stiffened up. What is happening? Is it the ma


When you press the pedal, that pumps the clutch master cylinder and sends fluid to the clutch slave cylinder which pushes the clutch plate to disengage. Therefore you have a leak at either or both master and slave cylinder. look for fluid dripping and low level in the reservoir of the master cylinder (up near the clutch pedal)

I have a 2001 holden rodeo turbo diesel and only just got the clutch and pressure plate replaced two days ago and now when you put your foot on the clutch it feels as though you are putting your foot on...


possibly air trapped in hydraulic clutch system causes pedal to go low and hard like brake pedal,
bleed from bleed nipple on firewall (bulkhead) under bonnet, left side of vehicle then under neath at slave cylinder.
when left for a while or turn vehicle off it comes good again due to air in line shifts position
these can be tricky to bleed also due to pedal doesnt come up when bleeding must pull up with foot or hand do it slowly and pump it for a while before opening bleeder nipple again.
hopefully you put the clutch fork in the right way again if you replaced the thrust bearing and the bearing itself depending on engine configuration.

Ran out of clutch fluid now there is air in line...clutch is all the way to floor...how do i get air out of line...have tried everything


It's a matter of bleeding the clutch system completely. You do need to make sure you don't ,have any leaks at the Clutch Master Cyl. or at the Clutch Slave Cyl or the line running between both, and that you don't have clutch fluid in the drivers compartment just below where the clutch rod comes through the firewall. That would of course mean you have to replace the Clutch Master Cylinder due to internal leakage.

This isn't so unusual, you'll have to pull up on the pedal by hand & pump it a few times to get pressure enough to properly bleed the system, or, you will have to start with bleeding the Clutch Master Cyl. first by loosening the line there & have someone push down the pedal, then before letting up on the pedal, tighten the line to prevent air from being drawn in. Repeat two times to get any air out here.

If your parts and lines are all in good shape then re-fill the resivoir & have someone to pull up on the clutch by hand if needed & then if necessary, use their hand to depress & pull the pedal a few times to try & build some pressure so that you can bleed the Clutch slave cylinder a few times to get all of the air out. After you've finished bleeding the system, the pedal should stay in the up position except when being depressed and you should have consistently even pressure when using the clutch.

good luck.

Car dies while driving, now it won't start sometimes


Could be a fuel pump that is going bad. Some times when fuel pumps go bad they cavitate and pump not just gas but also air. If you get too much air in the line and not enough gas the car won't start. Have a mechanic check your fuel line pressure.

Soft clutch 1992 isuzu rodeo


If the seals around the shafts of master and slave are tight, they may be concealing a leak with fluid bypassing the piston seals internal to the two assemblies. Either your master or slave cylinders need to be replaced ot have new seals installed. Once you find the culprit and have installed a replacement, you will have to bleed the lines to evacuate air trap in the lines.

All gears grinding not going


You obviously need to bleed the line. You are not getting enough movement to disengage the pressure plate when depressing the clutch pedal. The systems can be a little tough to bleed air from. Keep at it. You will get it. The secret is to keep the reservoir full while bleeding and not let more air back it at the slave down below. Good luck.
