If it suddenly failed then is probally a hydraulic problem, check for fluid in the master cylinder mounted to the firewall, id the small round one, if its empty, fill it with brake fluid and will need to bleed the system, there is a bleed fitting on the side of the gearbox and a secret one hinding in a supid place on the front strut tower, if you bleed both of these the hydralulic system should work.
If the flud is ok, then the clutch itself is prob stuffed and will require gearbox removal to replace it.

I have a 93 nissan 300zx non turbo. The clutch is still slipping when car is hot. I've replaced clutch and pressure plate, slave cylinder and clutch master cylinder. What else could it be??

Are you using authentic nissan parts ? If you are, not that is where your problem might exist .Have you checked the clutch pedal to ensure it is not sticking or binding somewhere ? If the master cylinder piston is sticking you may experience this problem .

I pressed on the clutch pedal of my 1986 Nissan 300ZX (manual trasnmission) and it stayed down after I removed my foot. Is the problem the clutch spring or could it be something else?

It's possible the fingers on the clutch plate are worn so bad that they grab the throw out bearing not allowing it to return to it's proper position. You may need to replace your entire clutch and bearing. It would be a good time to replace the input shaft bushing in the flywheel at the same time too.

1985 nissan 300zx has start signal failure how do you repair the problem

Start signal comes from the clutch engagement switch. When you press the clutch the pedal arm hits a switch and signals the motor to be able to start. Look and see if you have a little rubber piece pushed through a hole on the clutch pedal arm

1988 Nissan 300zx 5 speed clutch peddle does not

Sounds like you have a leak in your clutch master or slave cylinder. I had the same problem. They are not too expensive at kragen or auto zone. The master cylinder is located on the right side of your engine closest to the driver. Open the cap and check if theres fluid. If its low or empty then there might be a leak. The slave cylinder is located on the passenger side under the car bolted to the transmission. That could be leaking or not working properly. I would replace both if you can. Hope this helps.

I have a 1995 nissan 300zx twin turbo. lately it has been extremely hard to go into first gear. and sometimes it grinds even when the clutch is all the way in. and it usually grinds when going into second...

Clutch plate wearing out, this would be the less expensive fix. the other is that the syncronizers are going out. this would be a transmission rebuild. most likely yours is a clutch plate

The starter has a thing called a starter drive. It operates with a over running clutch that is a safety that keeps it from over speeding when still engaged with a started engine. That drive needs replaced, the clutch is bad.

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 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 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 is in the passenger front hood near the power steering off the clutch master cylinder again. i hope this helps.
