Are you loosing brake fluid from the brake master cylinder or the clutch master cylinder ? Either one could leak onto the floor.

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.

SOURCE: clutch fluid leak

the 900 uses the same reservoir for both brake and clutch; it's in front of the firewall on the side of the pedals, immediately visible when you open the hood. Milky plastic, with a screw top; max and min levels marked by lines.

clutch leaks can be at the slave cylinder in the clutch, which will likely cause slipping clutch; at the master cylinder, which may show as fluid inside the car; or in line between them (runs from master cylinder at firewall to front of engine, where the clutch is located).

Look for leaks on ground and relate to location above leak in engine bay

If no fluid loss,then i would squeeze the fluid line (rubber part) to the slave cylinder. If you now have pressure in the pedal replace the slave cylinder. If still no pressure then change the clutch master cylinder.

Hard to get my car in first or second gear,and reverse crunches,even when driving for a while it's really hard to change gears,what could be the problem ?


if it has a hydraulic clutch ,the problem is a failing clutch slave cylinder not holding pressure
the leak is probably from the slave cylinder
the indications are that the clutch pressure plate is not properly clearing the clutch plate and the drag is causing the problems

There is an oily substance running down the mat and carpet behind the clutch pedal on my for d focus


Depending on what you focus has there will be two reservoirs under the bonnet if the clutch is hydraulic there will be one for the clutch but there is a seperate one for the brakes check these reservoirs to see how full they are if either of these leak from the pistons inside the fluid will run past the seals and eventually in to the vehicle if your clutch is hydraulic the telltale sign will be if you look up behind the dash board where the pedals are one of the areas where the pedals are or even the top of the pedal itself will be wet with the fluid leaking back in best to change the master cylinder as there cheap enough then when new one is fitted bleed clutch this can be achieved by filling the reservoir then follow the pipe from that reservoir down to the gearbox there will be another cylinder on the gearbox where this pipe is joined look for a bleed screw on that cylinder

Check the level in the clutch master cylinder. If the fluid is brake fluid from the clutch cylinder, you will have to replace the clutch master cylinder. When bad, it is common for them to leak into the car and drip fluid on the carpet.
If you have the tools and so inclined, you can change it yourself. Not very hard,. 2 bolts hold it to the firewall, the pin or clip holding the clutch pedal rod to the cylinder (under the dash), then remove the steel line on the cylinder. (The steel line goes down to the transmission, to the little slave cylinder. After new master cylinder is installed, you need to bleed the slave cylinder to get air out of the lines.)

1993 toyota paseo. When i depress the clutch theres no pressure


Your clutch hydraulic system is compromised. Look under the dash, where the clutch pedal has a rod going thru the firewall. If it is damp with oily fluid, your clutch Master Cylinder is leaking. Also, on the side of the transaxle, there is another cylinder, the clutch Slave Cylinder. It can be leaking, also. In any case, with a condition such as yours, I would recommend that you replace both the clutch master and slave cylinders. Over time, they can wear ionterally, and no develop the proper flui pressure to release the clutch.

It's possible your clutch fork broke. Also, check to see if it's a hydraulic clutch. You could have a leak in the hydraulic system. Both would cause your clutch pedal to go to the floor.

Wet passenger side


I believe the problem is a leak in your heater core. The water would run down the inside of the firewall or near it thus running under the mat.
