Check The Fluid Level At The Resevour First. If Extremly Low You May Have To Bleed At Slave Cylinder On The Side Of Bell Housing. Bleeder Is The Same As A Brake Bleeder.8MM Or 5/16. Same Fluid DOT-3.

SOURCE: Brake pedal goes down to floor. Putting brake fluid doesn't solve problem. Vehicle must coast to a complete stop.

First look for obvious leaks under the vehicle, especially the inside area of each wheel... If you see fluid, you have either a blown cylinder seal or a bad line (check the rubber hoses to the front and back brakes too) Repair the offending part and bleed the air out of the system... (remember to clean pads or shoes if they have fluid on them)... If you see no hint of leakage anywhere, then suspect the master cylinder... if you remove the master cylinder, check and make sure that it didn't leak fluid into the brake booster diaphragm (Brake fluid will destroy the booster)... as in any repair when you open the system (lose fluid), you will need to bleed out the air to restore function... hope this helps...;-)

hi, the problem you are having could be down to a couple of things the first and most likely would be that the clutch needs replacing so this would need checking, the problem could also be either the master or slave cylinder on the hydraulic clutch, but my best guess would be your clutch needs replacing.

if the clutch pedal goes to the floor and stays their when you take your foot off the pedal then this indicates are problem with either of the clutch slave or master cylinders but if the clutch pedal comes up on its own then this indicates the clutch needs replacing.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

if when you push the brake peddle and it is hard at first then starts to fade towards the floor and you have no visible fluid leaks or noticeable fluid loss then your master cylinder is bypassing internally and needs replaced

The clutch is not fully releasing. You can try putting it into some other gear first, then rapidly moving to first gear, but really, you need to either adjust the clutch, or get it repaired.

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.

With that much play on the clutch you will need to replace the clutch and in the mean time you can float the gears by matching your rpms and your speed you may scratch a little but you can get it to the shop however its nor recommended to float gears because you can damage the gears if you do it too much.

No pressure clutch pedal goes straight to the floor 1988 holden r


If hydraulic actuated mechanism, loss of fluid, defective master cylinder or slave cylinder at the clutch. Missing pin or other part between slave cylinder and clutch arm. Loose or broken slave cylinder mounting. Missing pin or broken part between pedal and master cylinder. If mechanical linkage, look for broken components or missing pins at moving joints. If you tried to shift into gear with engine running, you may have damaged the transmission gears.

Clutch pedal suddenly goes to the floor, no longer [dis]engaging the clutch


I found that having a wood stick on the clutch pedal down to the floor all night (the other end of the stick held by the seat. oh yeah !!! ) would help to ease shifting for the first hour the next morning, then it would come back stiff and hard to engage in gear.
