Re: clutch sticks to floor or is slow to release?
Could be a couple of things check release bearing is not binding on output shaft or the arm which holds the release bearing is not bent or worn where it pivots also check where the arm pivots point is not worn out if all checks out replace the clutch pressure plate,clutch discs,throw out bearing and pilot bearing,one more thing is a clutch disc has some springs mounted to it to absorb some of the pressure when engaging the clutch and i have seen these springs come off and get in between the clutch assembly but usually when this happens you can feel and hear some grinding metal noise.but to check all the above the transmission will have to be removed.

It takes 2 people. Open the bleeder on the slave cylinder, hold your finger over it while the pedal is pumped, releasing the pressure when the pedal is down.. Once it starts pushing fluid thru, close the bleeder, pump 3 times, open bleeder with pedal down. Repeat till clutch feels good. If you are replacing the master cylinder, bench bleed it 1st. Be patient, this all takes awhile.
If you mean you step on the clutch, put transmission in gear and release clutch with no engagement (pedal returns to top position) there is a good chance your clutch disc or pressure plate, or both are worn out and need replacing.
If your clutch pedal is going to the floor and not returning there could be a leak in the system, a bad clutch master cylinder or a bad slave cylinder on the transmission. Check the fluid level in the clutch master cylinder. If it is low or empty you have a leak or component failure. Visually inspect clutch master, line, slave cylinder for fluid leaks. replace as needed. If hydraulics are o.k., suspect clutch disc/pressure plate.
You should not need to be filling the clutch master frequently. The system is "closed" and should stay full indefinitely. If frequent filling is necessary, there is a leak either in the master, line or slave. There should be a bleed valve on the slave unit mounted on the bellhousing. You can usually restore operation temporarily by bleeding it from there as you would a brake. (hold pedal down and open bleeder, let air out and close bleeder, release pedal and repeat 'till only fluid comes out) But you need to take a close look and find/replace what's leaking.
clutch master cylinder is located drivers side firewall,right next to brake master cylinder. it has small shot glass size fluid resevoir mounted above it,fluid is fed through hose down into clutch master. clutch master cylinder has a rod mounter on ft of it that goes through firewall and attaches to clutch pedal under dash . clutch slave cylinder is mounted on ft passenger side of transmission assy. most common leak is from master cylinder,you would be able to look under dash ,follow clutch pedal up to where it attatched to clutch master pushrod.follow that rod to wear it meets up to a small 1 1/2" or so rubber boot.fluid will be leaking from that boot if master is leaking.
Its sounds like a bad clutch cylinder or bad slave cylinder or fluid leaking. First check brakefluid level in clutch master , and check for a leak in clutch system. If there are NO leaks, then you either have a bad clutch cylinder or a slave cylinder. Bleed clutch at bleeder screw on slave cylinder and make sure there is pressure from master cylinder. If there is pressure then slave cylinder may be bad replace slave and bleed and that should take care of you problem. If master is bad then replace bleed system ad you should be good. Contact if you need more help. Thanks for using FIX YA.
check the slave and clutch master cylinder for leakage. look under the dash , at the clutch master) push rod attached to the clutch pedal) . try to see if there are any leaks around it. if so have it replaced and have the system bled to remove all fluid and air stuck in the system.
slave cyl is sepreate from master cyl you have air in the clutch hydraulic system replace slave and inspect clutch master for leaks on drivers floor board area pull carpet back and make sure to bleed system properly!!!!!!!
i think youre doing the right thing. they are very stubborn to bleed because the hyd. line goes up high across back of engine before droppiing back down to slave cyl., trapping air. could try to gravity bleed by opening bleeder at slave, cap off of master cyl, full with fluid then it may start to come out after a bit. then try your process again. or can try to bleed at connections further up the line, working your way back to bleeder. hope this helps. be patient.
