Check the clave cylinder for leaks and if none replace the clutch master cylinder as the fluid is by- passing the piston cup back to the resevoir.

SOURCE: Clutch pedal sometimes engages when near floor

Hi. Let me try to lend you a bit of assistance, also.
My fellow expert Benimur is very correct with his input to you.

But...Air does not get into your clutch hydraulics unless the fluid has leaked out at some point. As long as the cylinders and tubes are intact, I would doubt that air is the issue. Short of pulling the transaxle, and inspecting the clutch, there is really no other way to determine your issue properly.

Personally, I think that you haven internal problem with the clutch assembly. It could be worn fingers on the clutch plate, a worn clutch disc, or something as simple as the throwout bearing is hanging up on the input shaft collar.

If Beni's suggestions does not help, you are going to need to pull the trans off, and inspect the clutch items mentioned above.

Thanks for choosing FIxYa, we wish you the best of luck; let us know how it turns out.

Yes, your clutch might be worn and/or out of adjustment or the trans is worn. Your clutch may be fine also. Toyota's have a problem with there shifter bushings and seats. They brake and crack also causing shifting problems. And some times only one gear depending on the condition.If yours is broken,crack or damaged, you can find the parts from Toyota and there a whole lot cheaper than a clutch. Also I recommend adjusting the clutch if possible. Not all are adjustable. Check your clutch fluid.

SOURCE: Clutch Pedal not returning 3000GT

Buy a seal kit from autozoe, wil cost you around 17 dollars. Remove clutch aster cylinder by firstly undoing the resevoir clamp and remove the reservoir to give you access to the hard hydraulic line and detach the line. Undo the two bolts holding the master cylinder to the firewall and then go inside the car and pull the cotter pin holding the end of the mastrecylinder plunger to the pedal (watch the washers and remember how they go back on). Remove the unit, and strip it down to replace the plunger and releif valve you get from the kit. Good Luck.

Need a clutch pedal diagram for a 1999 s10 2.2 4cyl manual trans


Sorry no diagram. But here is how it works. In the start position(Power) the wire goes to the start fuse, from the fuse it goes to the clutch pedal switch. Push the pedal and it goes to the starter relay. On the other end is ground. If it is good it pulls the relay closed. On the closed end is battery power to the starter.

Clutch will not engage when it was engaging perfectly to begin with.


Your car has a hydraulic clutch release system, it is defective, either the master or slave cylinder is leaking or pulling in air and this causes the clutch pedal to go to the floor.

Lost resistance on clutch pedal and hard to change gears also when topping up clutch fluid it does`nt last that much and leaks from slave cyclinder


If the slave cylinder is leaking, replace the slave cylinder. You are loosing hydraulic pressure in the clutch and is the reason why it is not engaging correctly.

Cannot engage reverse with engine running


Ideally, even if the clutch is worn, the vehicle should still shift as the hydraulic clutch system is designed to be self adjusting to compensate for wear. That leaves just the Clutch Master Cylinder and the Clutch Slave Cylinder.

First thing, check & restore fluid level to full if it is low.

You might just try to quickly pump the clutch a few times and then try going into reverse with the engine running, if it does, then you're going to need to check the entire hydraulic clutch system for leaks, repair any & then bleed the system to get it to work properly. The Clutch Master Cyl. can leak back through the firewall in the drivers compartment near the pedals and indicates seal damage within the Clutch Master cyl. itself.

If you still can't shift even with pumping the clutch it could still be the hydraulic system, it's just time to perform another test:

If the shifter goes easily from gear to gear and into reverse with no problem when the engine is off and sitting still, that confirms that the trans shift components should be in good shape. If you notice it binds, then there could be some internal damage to the forks or other parts.

Back to the hydraulic system, If you find it is the Clutch Master cylinder, it has to be bled itself before attempting to bleed the rest of the system once repairs are made. Once replaced, just keep the connection to the hose loose a small amount while someone presses the clutch, then tighten before they remove the pressure from the pedal. It may be necessary to pull the clutch pedal up by hand and operate it by hand a few times until you build pressure on the system to cause it to stay in the rest position. That will remove air from that part.

If it's the slave cylinder or just a line leaking, you can just bleed the system from the slave cyliinder.

good luck

No pressure clutch pedal goes straight to the floor 1988 holden r


If hydraulic actuated mechanism, loss of fluid, defective master cylinder or slave cylinder at the clutch. Missing pin or other part between slave cylinder and clutch arm. Loose or broken slave cylinder mounting. Missing pin or broken part between pedal and master cylinder. If mechanical linkage, look for broken components or missing pins at moving joints. If you tried to shift into gear with engine running, you may have damaged the transmission gears.
