Well its just like the brake system, the fluid has to be going somewhere.
Is it leaking into the bellhousing around the clutch ?

Hydraulic clutch slave cylinder


this symptom would typically be solved with a new cluth slave cylinder. Check to make sure the fluid is full in the master cylinder reservoir. If the fluid is empty then there is either a leak, or the clutch is has worn. filling the reservoir and bleeding the system may get you back on the road.

Clutch pedal occasionally sticks half way down


This problem is caused by the hydraulic clutch master cylinder, you will need to get it replaced, there is no other part that will do this except that cylinder.

My clutch pedal goes to the floor like spring or cable is broken how can i check this


Most clutches are hydraulic. you should have a clutch master cylinder. check the cylinder if full of brake / clutch fluid. if empty fill it up but if empty will need bleeding.

Can 2002 sunfire slave cylinder leak and make the clutch slip from the fluid. their's no fluid in the resiver and car wont start


If the resivor is empty then when you push on the clutch it isn't disengaging allowing the engine to start. The best way to fix this problem is to install a new slave cylinder fill the resivor with fluid have someone push the clutch down open the bleeder valve to let the air out. close the bleeder valve release the clutch push down the clutch hold it to the floor open the bleeder let the air out close the bleeder and let up on clutch. continue doing this until you have a stream of fluid coming out of the bleeder with no air. after every 2 or 3 times check the resivor and fill as needed and dont run it out of fluid while doing this or you will have to start over. After you get a steady stream of fluid from the slave cylinder bleeder when you push on the clutch you will be able to feel the clutch disingage and be able to start the engine and drive.

The cylinder was empty this morning in the 1990 pathfinder for the clutch, pedal went to floor, filled master cylinder and holding fluid but pedal is still on floor. What to do....


you need to inspect the clutch hydraulic system to look for a leak.check in the truck were the master cylinder bolts to the firewall as if the master is leaking out the back it will show up the leak in this area.check around the master under the hood to see if there are signs of it leaking.check at the transmission were the slave cylinder is as this is another place they leak.if you have to fill the master because its empty there is a leak somewhere.you also may need the clutch replaced as the slave cylinder moves out to adjust for wear of the clutch which will lower the fluid level but not cause it to be empty.you will have to bleed the clutch system at the slave cylinder,there should be a bleeder screw to do this.if you find the leak in the clutch system you will have to replace the system as some come complete master lines and slave.some come with just the slave,lines,master as separate components.

Unsure if empty reservoir is for clutch.


If it is a bright green, it is probably antifreeze, the reservoir for that is usually around 1/2 to 1 gallon. If it is about a cup to pint size, it may be clutch fluid. It should smell about the same as brake fluid. Usually clear or brownish clear in color.

Will not go into gear(manual)


Pretty good chance it's the clutch but check the clutch master cylinder and slave cylinder for leaks (also line between). A drastic change often is caused by failure of either component...generally if clutch fails, it is a gradual process (similar to how a brake pad wears)

Clutch problem


Hi,

No there is no linkage to cause this problem. Your problem is most likly a bad clutch master cylinder or a clutch slave cylinder.

Lokk under the hood near the driverside firewall for a small little cup shape. it will be next/near the brake master cylinder. make sure it has fluid in it. Also look under the truck for leaks. It uses regular brale fluid so if low/empty fill it up and pump the brake.

So you will need to check those 2 parts out and see which one is leaking/failed. Replace it and enjoy.

Clutch fluid


I would first check for leaks, and if no leaks i would check your master and slave cylinders if they are working properly
