Question about 2004 Pontiac Sunfire

2 Answers

Clutch has no resistance and drops to the floor, fluid levels fine, no leaking, engine starts no problem. What could the problem be?

I have heard that it could be the clutch cable as there is no cable attached to the clutch at all. Please advise

As with brakes, no resistance usually means the master cylinder or slave cylinder has failed.

If you have a hydraulic system then bleed out the ait at the clutch slave cylinder. If you have a cable system check for missing/.broken connection at either end of the cable.

SOURCE: It feels like the clutch may be going out

you may have a hydrolic clutch .. check for a master cylinder similar to the brake master cyclinder near the clutch pdl .. it may be low on fluid .. .. i am assuming you meant that the clutch had to be near the floor before DISengaging .. if its a mechanical hookup instead then there is an adjustment for that (free pedal adj)

if the adjustment is out of range then you could have a bad throwout bearing .. but usually they make noise when the go bad ..

It seems like your Slave Cylinder for your clutch has a leak or you have a hose leak That part holds hydraulic fluid for the operation of your clutch assembly and linkage, I would refill the reservoir and have one person pump the clutch pedal while the other person is checking the part or ground to determine where the leak is originating from. I would replace that part or check the hose for leaks and replace as necessary.

Your Slave Cylinder is bad, it is not holding pressure causing your clutch pedal to not work, it located on the driver's side of the firewall in the engine compartment.

My clutch on my 92' Isuzu Trooper goes to the floor board without any resistance. (Too easily)... Does that mean I need to add more fluid to the clutch reservoir?


fluid level would be the first thing to check. make sure the fluid level is up to the maximum mark/line.
check for any obvious fluid leaks.
you may have to bleed the system to make sure there is no air in the fluid. there are various brake bleeding kits that will work, just follow the instructions on your kit.
if there is still a problem then you may have a seal gone in the master cylinder, or in the slave cylinder.

Clutch goes all the way down to the floor, unable ...


Does the clutch pedal offer any resistance? The clutch and brake system use the same reservoir, there is a hose coming out from the side of the reservoir that goes over to the clutch master cylinder. Sometimes the brake fluid level goes low as brake pads wear and lowers the fluid level too low to work the clutch. On the front side of the transmission, is a clutch slave cylinder, check it for leaks, if it leaks replace it. Hope this helps, let me know.

Clutch went to floor like nuthing was attached to it... runs fine just seems that the clutch pedal dont work or something it just floppy now...it happened when i was moving it in driveway was fine before...


There is a return spring that lifts the clutch pedal back to the original position. It seems that the clutch return spring has got disconnected. The pedal will do its job of disengaging the engine from the gear box, but will not offer any resistance to the foot and thus give an impression of doing nothing. So, that spring should be set right. For this the clutch housing will have to be opened and the spring reset.

I don't have the information on your particular car but if in fact it is leaking clutch fluid which I believe it is, you are sucking air into the system causing you not to have any clutch. The leak needs to be fixed before you will have a clutch.

well you need to fix the leak and then bleed it what you have is air in the lines you will eventually lose all clutch if not fixed and running it improperly where wear the clutch itself out sooner

Clutch Pedal Very Soft


Air in the system. The shave is between the engine and trans and even a small leak won't show up. Look in the rubber piece on trans with a light and see if you see any fluid. If you see any then the slave is starting to fail.

No clutch resistance on audi a4


This sounds like a common Audi problem but its usually in early shape A3s and TTs. If you heard a snap, then possibly the pedal has broken where the clutch master cylinder connects to it. In this case you can just replace the pedal but it can be an early sign of a faulty master cylinder. If the pedal is ok, it maybe the master that has failed and needs replacing. Worse cases, the slave cylinder maybe faulty or even the release bearing could be sticking on the input shaft. Bleeding the brakes will not help, the clutch shares the same fluid and reservoir but is on a different hydraulic system. The clutch would need to be bled from the bleed nipple on the slave cylinder on top of the gearbox. This can be difficult without the car on the ramp, but is worth trying before replacing parts. What engine does it have?
