Hi, this is a result of a bad throw out bearing pack and, this may have damaged the pressure plate as well.

I recommend taking this vehicle in , if possible, for a thorough repair on these two parts. they are vital to optimal clutch performance.

Please rate and have a great day:)

New clutch installed. No pedal, stays on floor unless I bring it back up with my hand. No resistance.


`Did it bleed, did fluid come out in a steady stream? Isn't there a spring to bring the pedal off the floor?
Check the linkage of the pedal to rod to the clutch master cylinder, make sure that is all together. Any chance the master has an internal leak and won't build hydraulic pressure down at the slave? If you get it bled, then watch the slave operation while someone works the clutch pedal. The piston on the slave should extend and push the clutch fork enough to disengage the clutch.

1996 nissan maxima clutch squeals pedal stuck to floor


Sound like you're going to need a whole new clutch assembly, but if the fluid level was dry you may have sucked air into the system which means that the clutch will have to be bled at the slave cylinder, just like you would brakes. The squealing sound is coming from the throw out bearing, usually when the do that it means that the bearing is frozen and cannot spin. Either way it looks like you'll be dropping the transmission to work on the clutch.

Clutch suddenly has no resistance and car won't shift gears. Fluids were low, have put fluid in the reservoir but still doesn't work. How do you bleed a clutch line?


on the transmission there is a slave cylinder that works like a brake cylinder, when you apply pressure to the clutch pedal a rod inside the vehicle under the dash pushes into a clutch master cylinder, (almost like a brake master cylinder without the reservoir, as the clutch master cylinder works off the brake master cylinders reservoir) the plunger in the clutch master cylinder applies fluid pressure to the slave cylinder,(located down on the trans near the clutch fork assembly) which projects a piston rod into the clutch fork dis-engaging the clutch. To bleed the clutch slave cylinder locate the bleeder screw on the slave cylinder,break loose so it loosens and tightens easily. Check fluid in brake master cylinder reservoir,fill if needed, while bleeder on the slave cyl is closed have a helper push clutch pedal to floor and back 7-8 times, (At first the clutch might stay at the floor, just pull it up by hand or foot and continue) after several pumps with no rest time push pedal to the floor and hold down with foot pressure, at this time loosen the bleeder on slave untill fluid leaks out, watch for air bubbles, close bleeder and repeat untill there is no sign of air bubbles, (make sure to check fluid in the brake master cylinder and keep fill as needed, do not let fluid get less than 1/2 empty as it might **** air and you will have to start over) If this does not bring clutch to operate then you need to check if slave cylinder is reachig its full extension of push rod or not. If it is not then you will have to replace the clutch master cyl or the clutch slave cyl or both as seals are bad and wont hold pressure. Or you need to inspect the clutch fork,the throw-out bearing, or the pressure plate fingers and clutch plate for failure or broken bent parts. I hope it turns out to be a easy fix on that clutching thing.

My car nissan 1998 maxima clutch pedal stuck to the bottom suudenly. leave car over night again pressure build up and start working perfect until next time happen in 3-4 days. could you tell me what could...


it sounds like its either the clutch master cylinder or the slave cylinder thats causing the problem. This is generally a sign of that system failing. There are somethings you can do though First i would bleed the clutch and see if the problem persists if it does you need to diagnose if the master cylinder is bad. Second... make sure the master cylinder has the correct amount of fluid. If it does try this, If you have a bad master cylinder then you can do the following test with the help of an assistant. Have your assistant press down on the clutch while you look to see if the transmission fluid in the reservoir rises when the clutch is down and then rises again when the clutch is released. If it does then you may have a bad master cylinder. also feel under the master cylinder to see if there is oil if there is the seals may have gone bad and the unit will need to be changed. in my experience id go with the master cylinder, but it could happen with the slave as well. Usually if you change one you change both of them.
Its better that you had this problem now then no pressure when you are driving.

if you need further assistance please let me know and i will be glad to assist you further. if this helped please feel free to rate the solution. Thanks - Midwest-tek

Clutch pedal going to the floor too easily..


You likely have a leak in either the master for the clutch, the line going to the slave unit or the slave itself. You need to look at these items and replace any leaking components. If the master is full, likely it is internally bypassing and therefore needs replacement. Air in the system can only get in there from a leak. bleeding may make it work for a short time but is not a cure. After making any repairs you do need to bleed it though. (just like brakes)

1996 nissan maxima clutch sticks to floor


yes, Briong the pedal up where it belongs, then open an fill your master cylider. Then go below and open the bleeder intil the fluid runs/drips steady and free of any bubbles. Do not pump the pedal. When only fluid comes out, tighten/close the bleeder and give it a try. Good Luck. If peal dives again, replace the master cylinder.

The clutch on my car stuck to the floor. I check the reservoir was completely empty. I have a feeling the slave cylinder is filled with air. I'll need to get the schematics to see how to bleed the clutch.


Bleeding the clutch is similar to bleeding brakes. You'd pump the clutch pedal several times to get the pressure up, and then open the bleeder on the slave cylinder (mounted down on the transmission). Repeat and add fluid as needed until no air comes out.

Two things - first off, some cars have more than one bleed point (the Nissan 300ZX is one of those), so be sure there is only the slave cylinder to bleed. Second, if it went right to the floor, something failed - either the slave cylinder or the master cylinder. Changing the slave is relatively easy - usually two bolts and it comes off, you put on a new one, and bleed it as described above. Often the slave cylinder is less than $30, so it's worth it to try changing it if you can't get the pedal to come back off the floor on its own. A clutch master is significantly more expensive and more difficult to change, so start cheap and easy and replace the slave cylinder if you can't pump the pedal to get pressure built up for a bleed.
