Check the level in the clutch master cylinder. If the fluid is brake fluid from the clutch cylinder, you will have to replace the clutch master cylinder. When bad, it is common for them to leak into the car and drip fluid on the carpet.
If you have the tools and so inclined, you can change it yourself. Not very hard,. 2 bolts hold it to the firewall, the pin or clip holding the clutch pedal rod to the cylinder (under the dash), then remove the steel line on the cylinder. (The steel line goes down to the transmission, to the little slave cylinder. After new master cylinder is installed, you need to bleed the slave cylinder to get air out of the lines.)

SOURCE: 2006 Ford Crown Victoria HVAC only blows thru windshield defrost

You have a vacuum leak. Defrost is the default postion(no Vacuum). Start by finding the small black vacuum line near the heater hoses at the fire wall under the hood.Trace it back, it should go to a square black reservoir . Not totally sure exactly where it is located on this model,shop manual doesn't show a very good pic, but it states to remove wiper arm and pivot shaft to remove it. You will see a second line going from here to intake manifold vacuum port. Make sure you don't have a leak there somewhere.

Have the windscreen resealed. A tempory fix is to tape around the windscreen joint with a wide PVC tape to prevent the ingress of the water.

I have a 2003 Ford Focus lx and the clutch pedal has no resistance on it and it will not go into gear. Please help I need this car to get to work


Check the clutch fluid level. It will be a small reservoir close to the brake master cylinder. If the clutch reservoir is empty, add fluid.( brake fluid ) You may have to perform a bleed procedure at the clutch slave cylinder attached to the transmission Pump the clutch pedal several times and have someone open the bleeder screw until fluid comes out and the clutch pedal has its resistance back

There is an oily substance running down the mat and carpet behind the clutch pedal on my for d focus


Depending on what you focus has there will be two reservoirs under the bonnet if the clutch is hydraulic there will be one for the clutch but there is a seperate one for the brakes check these reservoirs to see how full they are if either of these leak from the pistons inside the fluid will run past the seals and eventually in to the vehicle if your clutch is hydraulic the telltale sign will be if you look up behind the dash board where the pedals are one of the areas where the pedals are or even the top of the pedal itself will be wet with the fluid leaking back in best to change the master cylinder as there cheap enough then when new one is fitted bleed clutch this can be achieved by filling the reservoir then follow the pipe from that reservoir down to the gearbox there will be another cylinder on the gearbox where this pipe is joined look for a bleed screw on that cylinder

The clutch pedal seems to be very flopy and is not going into gear easily


Can be broken spring on the cluch pedal in side the car, that hold the pedal all the way back for full amount of brake fluid to the slave cylender, can be checked by pulling the pedal all the way up before steping it to the floor and putting in to gear or just look up under the daschbord on the pedal. Can allso be to little brake fluid in container. To check the master cylender rubber, step on the pedal putt in gear with engine running and wait with pedal all the way to the floor, if the rubber is gone the car wil start to go after some time (1/2-1 min or less) To check the slave cylender rubber will be dune the same way and working same way but it will be leaking out and on the floor.

The clutch pedal on my 2000 Ford Focus ZTS broke. It seems the pedal itself is not connected to the clutch anymore. Only the pedal spring brings back up the pedal. I therefore cannot shift gears. The rest...


That car has a hydraulic actuated clutch so it could just be low on clutch fluid or one of the pipes going from the pedal to the clutch could be burst.

96 pathfinder clutch pedal has lost pressure,


usually when this happen you lost fluid pressure look for a fluid leak at the clutch master cylinder under the hood ,it should be by the brake master ,it has a small plastic tank on top with a black rubber cap or underneath on the transmission there is the clutch slave cylinder it will have a small 2 inch rod that pushes the clutch fork ,look for the rubber boot on it ,see if there is fluid coming out of it ,also follow the clutch fluid lines maybe somthing has damaged one and its leaking !
