at a minimum the pressure plate but not changing everything while in there would be silly

SOURCE: hard to change gear

sounds like your slave cylinder for your clutch is by-passing.

SOURCE: nissan clutch problem

If your not able to shift into any gear that means your clutch is not engage/disengaging. Check for fluid leaks, you said topped off and fluid levels were low? It sounds like you have a Slave cylinder or master cylinder leak, if its leaking its bet to replace both.

SOURCE: 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.

Where to put gear oil in gomoto 107cc engine, have gears but no cluch One side have oil cap to put oil other side have small cap to open where gear ratio is printed but everything is dry inside

Friend, you have a hydraulic clutch. Nothing to do with transmission oil. Use brake fluid and fill the empty container by removing the cap from the empty container. Fill the container and start pumping the clutch pedal, or go to the clutch slave cylinder on the transmission and open the bleeder at the slave cylinder top while someone pushes the clutch pedal down, close the bleeder then let off the clutch. Do this a few times and the clutch will begin to work. At times it will take a while before the clutch comes all the way back up, but eventually it will. Now, there has to be a reason the clutch master cylinder was empty. A possible leak. Check to see if any fluid loss while in use. You may need to replace the slave cylinder. I've been through this and it's fairly easy to do.

I have a 1996 Nissan Pulsar Q manual with clutch issues. I had both the clutch and the gear box replaced in 2013.

I suspect it has a hydraulic clutch - some hydraulic clutches share the brake reservoir for fluid. It sounds like there is a leak in the hydraulics for the clutch or the piston in the master cylinder for the clutch is allowing fluid to leak past it. Has the fluid in the brake reservoir been going down?
You may want to check the repair manual (buy a Haynes or Chilton at an auto parts store, or check your local library) to confirm what type clutch you have and the location of the components.

Any idea on what might be the problem with my hydraulic clutch system (and what/how to fix)?

Hi,if you are loosing clutch flued the most likely place is the slave cylinder as you have already replaced the master cylinder,its proberly leaking inside so you cant see it.
I mean all you have is one slave cylinder atached to a pipe wich attaches to the slave cylinder so if theres a leak it has to be from one of these parts.
let me know when you find out,all the best.

How do I check the oil level in slave cylinder for the clutch on 2006 chevy cobalt

First off, clutch hydraulics use ONLY dot 3/4 brake fluid, if you used any kind of petroleum product you have ruined the clutch master cylinder and clutch slave/actuator(GM's term)cylinder. The level is on the side of the reservoir. If you had to add fluid, you have a leak in the system, probably the slave cylinder first. A master cylinder leak would have fluid on the inside of the firewall, where the master cylinder is mounted(leaking at the back). You bleed clutch hydraulics as you would with brakes.

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 car wont shift into gear while the car is running. the clutch peddle is very loose and floppy

Make sure your Slave cylinder has the proper amount of fluid in it and check it for leaks. The clutch is hydraulic on your car so there is no cable to adjust or break.

Think of it exactly like your brakes. When there is not enough fluid or there is a leak, the brakes are soft and the pedal has no pressure behind it making your brakes not work.

Item B in the picture below is where your slave cylinder is. Again, check the connections for leaks and make sure there is enough fluid in the reservoir.

Where do i put clutch fluid

in the break fluid reservoir just use dot 3 break fluid. the clutch line is tapped into the break line so the one reservoir supply's both the breaks and the clutch fluid.

I dont know where to put the oil for the gear box

Brake fluid is the same fluid you put in the clutch master cylinder. Any mechanic will verify this.
