My clutch pedal in my 95 chevy cheyenne is just hanging there and will not return or anything it just sit there how can I fix that

if its hydraulic then you need to check the fluid level in the clutch master cylinder.if its out of fluid you could have a leak in the system or the clutch has gone bad.(throwout bearing,pressure plate).check to make sure nothing is broken under the dash with the clutch pedal mechanism.if its cable then check the cable for breakage,check to see if the clutch arm it attaches to at the transmission is cracked or broken.just suggestions.

Hi, Ref, S4 manual, petrol, 6 plate Trying to find out if the pin from the clutch pedel to the clutch master cylinder should be straight or bent please? Have had an ongoing problem with the clutch pedel...

Hi Julian,the pin should be straight.the only way it could get bent is if undue pressure was applied with limited travel.your mech will understand.

The clutch on my 1998 ford escort is not getting power

Hi Friend:

#1) On your Model you have a Clutch Master Cylindr, Check your Resevoir to see it its FULL of Fluid.

#2) If it is Then you need to Check to See if when you Push the Clutch Down its Pushing the Pin or Accuating Arm Under your Vehicle on Right Side of Car. You'll need a Helper to Push the Clutch.

#3) If its Not Moving the Rod to your Throw Out Bearing Accuating Arm Then You'll need to Replace the Master Cylinder and Possibly Your Slave Cylinder Underneath Its what Pushes the Pin To Disengage your Clutch.

#4 If its Moving and Pushing the Pin.Then Your Throw Out Bearing is Bad or Your Clutch and Pressure Plate.

#5) Which to Replace These you'll have to Pull the Transmission to Remove and Replace them with New Ones.

I hope this has helped you Please let me Know by Voting for the Solution I have Given You. Thanks For Using FIXYA From: d_hubbs

The clutch is stuck to the floor bord and i cant shift

you may have a faulty clutch master cylinder or faulty clutch slave cylinder- leaking clutch fluid. most of the time both are replaced at the same time which should be recomended by your mechanic, the bolts to the master cylinder are very hard to get to and require the right tool.
you should be able to move car forward by selecting 1st then cranking engine till it starts, gear changes while driving are hard but not impossible. i recommend a tow truck to a local repairer.

Hi ive got an escort gti.. i thought my clutch cable had gone but i checcked it and its not that,i think its the pedel that cnnects to the cable. can anyone tell me what its called and maybe give me a...

Just guessing you have a hydraulic clutch with a clutch master cylinder and perhaps even a slave cylinder as well.

First, I'd check the fluid in the clutch master cylinder reservoir. It should be described in your owner's manual.

I have a 1998 ford escort cx wagon, the clutch has it possible it could be the cable? does it have a cable? or is it a hydraulic clutch? or would I need to replace the clutch? :-)

There may be a possibility the cable has snapped, however Ford used a ratchet and pawl set up on the Escort which is made of plastic! when it reaches its full tension (Self Adjusting) it can break leaving you with a baggy soppy floppy clutch pedal. So a clutch replacement is NOT required!
If the cable has broken you should be able to see from under the Bonnet/hood as it is situated on top of the gearbox Bell housing. Again a Clutch is NOT needed.
Hope this sorts it?

it could be either, look at your master cylinder in engine bay and look for leaks, if you find none look inside the car up under the clutch pedel, check for fluid seeping around where the pedel arm goes thru firewall and possibly under carpet
