I would check where the rod goes off the top of your pedal through the firewall on the engine compartment side. There is a small plunger type set up there that also pushes fluid to the clutch. I dont know the name of this part, but i had this break on an 89 s10 from going over a large bump is the only reason I thought I might contact you with this info. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: no pressure on cluth pedal

You have air in the system, Keep the reservoir full, attach a hose to the bleed screw the other end of the hose in a small clean jar. Open the bleed screw, push the clutch pedal to the floor, close the bleed screw, repeat over and over till you are getting fluid and NO bubbles. do not reuse the brake fluid. When the bubbles are gone your clutch will work.

Cluth won't disengage


depends on what type of clutch meaning with or without slave cylinder. if with, slave cylinder could be bad or out of fluid. if without, throwout bearing and possibly fork could be damaged.

Started off with cluth sticking to floor.would have to pull clutch pedal back up with foot. truck would stick in gear. even with clutch fully depressed. seemed like spring had disconnected from clutch...


your clutch uses a hydraulic master and slave cylinder to disengage. It is likely that the slave has been leaking and the reservoir gone dry, thus allowing air into the system and reducing effectiveness. Check the clutch master cylinder reservoir (near the brake reservoir) fluid level. If low, also check the slave cylinder at the clutch for leakage. If leaking, replace the slave and bleed the system. If you need procedures or have more questions, please let us know.

The engine starts when in neutral but when i try to put it into gear, the cluth depresses to the ground like nothing and stays there. I can pull it back by using my hands but it has no pressure at all....


You have air in your hydraulic clutch. Check the clutch master cylinder reservoir fluid level. My guess would be that your clutch slave cylinder has been leaking and hes leaked out your fluid until it sucked air into the system. You'll have to replace the slave cylinder and bleed the system. let us know if you have more questions.

How do i adjust my cluth on a 2003 tacoma


The slave cylinder in these trucks makes the clutch non adjustable. If you have a soft clutch pedal which goes to the floor and can not shift as easy as it used to the slave cylinder is low on fluid or weak. Check the reservoir of the slave cylinder to see if its full. If low fill it with the recommended Power Steering fluid which is DOT3 approved I do beleive and pump the clutch pedal about 25 times with the engine off. The clutch should operate correctly. If it tends to get worse the slave cylinder needs to be replaced

The trans will need to come out. While your at it, just replace the clutch assembly, rear main oil seal, resurface the flywheel, and the clutch master cyl. Its not really a job you should do, find a repair shop to handle it.

300Zx will not shift out of 5th gear


is there any pedal pressure when you step on the clutch? I had a similiar problem with my 91 300zx tt....it was stuck in third gear, no pedal pressure on the clutch whatsoever....i had cracked the pivot ball and the clutch slave 'popped out'. i had to pull the trans to fx the problem because i could not reattach the clutch fork onto the release bearing with the trans in the vehicle....you need to bleed the system...gravity bleed the slave until there are no air bubbles. make sure you top off the clutch master cylinder in the process.....then bleed the clutch operating cylinder.....it is in the passenger front hood near the power steering resivoir....top off the clutch master cylinder again. i hope this helps.
