Question about 2000 Nissan Maxima
I was stopping at a stop sign and i shifted from 2nd gear to 1st and it was grinding i had the clutch pushed in all the way when this happened. I checked the fluid and I was empty so i added fluid and pumped my clutch and still nothing happened i don't know what it can be i been told it's my entire clutch is fried, it's because one of my gears has slipped a clutch slave I need help asap
Ok Matt,I got you covered,when your clutch master cylinder goes empty,your clutch slave is leaking and not holding pressure,you can fill reservoir and bleed to get you home,I've did it in my 85 nissan 720 4x4 before,you can have someone pump clutch pedal a few times and hold to floor and you open bleeder valve at slave cylinder till air is gone,just don't let resevoir get low.Here is a link to bleeding,your slave cylinder is bolted to side of transmission with 2 bolts.Be careful and don't strip bleeder screw,you can get part at Autozone,also get dot 3 brake fluid,this autozone iis not showing a guide to replace,here's one from a 85 nissan,very similar.

The syncro is about $185.00 and labor is hard to say, if it's been grinding and damaged hard parts tthere will be more money for parts and may mean the transmisson has to come out, and thats more money so it could get as high as $500.00 or more depending on what it needs. It's hard to say without tearing it down and looking at the parts.

I am dealing with a very similar issue on my 03 Spec V , So far i noticed the clevis pin was loose and the locking hitch pin that slips thru it had fallen out . this caused the gears to not wanna engage due to the bolt behind the clevis which runs to the master cylinder was not getting pressed in when i pushed the clutch pedal in because the clevis pin was slippin on n off giving me no pressure up top .. I had to remove my lower dash panel in order to get visual n hand access to this pin , it is a tight spot to work in as well . May be easist to remove the 4 14mm bolts that hold yur driver seat in to give ya more room to work n stretch out ur arms

If the clutch is good and no air in the hydrolic system, your synchronizers are most likely going bad.
