Clutch and brake fluid should be change every couple of years, Since the fluid does attract moisture, and degrade the efficiency of the brake and clutch action.

There is a bleeder valve located above the slave cylinder inlet on the side of the trans. you will need a length of clear tubing and a bottle to drain into, as well as a bottle of fresh dot3 brake fluid, and a small end wrench or pair of pliers. cover the end of the bleeder valve with the tubing and put the other end into a small amount of brake fluid in your fluid catching container. loosen the bleeder valve and unscrew the master cylinder cap. top off the resevoir and pump the pedal twice, add more fluid. repeat until fluid is clean and clear. close the valve and top off the fluid, replace the cap and you are ready to roll, this should be done annually for elongated hydraulic system life. (brakes as well, bleeder valve on the back of callipers)

1998 Honda Civic manual trans will not shift into gears. Car starts, push in clutch and it goes to the floor, release clutch and comes back up. Unable to put into gears. Brake fluid and clutch fluid seem...


Eric, how are you confirming whether or not the car goes into gear if you shift gears without the engine running? One way would be to put it in 1st and see if you can push the car. If you can't, it is in gear.

Another option is to roll the car slightly forward or backward (engine off) while trying to put the car in gear. Once it is in gear, then the car shouldn't move any further. However, if it goes into gear, DO NOT start the car without taking it back out of gear.

The clutch is much more likely to be the problem than the transmission.

If the clutch fluid ever ran dry, then the clutch hydraulics will need to be bled of air. Otherwise, the problem could be the clutch master cylinder, slave cylinder or throwout bearing. Since you didn't report the clutch slipping (e.g. engine revving without accelerating when in gear) it is likely not the clutch disks themselves.

Hyundai excel 1996 have to double clutch to change gears


Where is clutch engaging? close to firewall or up high on pedal. If up high, your clutch needs replacing, Low, your clutch is ok, maybe throwout bearing is bad or air in system or not adjusted correctly

Why does clutch leak off and wont go into gear 96 toyota tacoma when you push on clutch pedal goes to the floor it wont engage clutch to be able to put into gear


the most likely reason is either the clutch master cyl. needs to be replaced.or the.slave cyl. its mounted down on the transmation under the hood find the resivore for the clutch. check the fluid level.if its low , fill it back up , and look for signs of a leak
you will probally have to bleed out all of the air from the system.its done almost the same way as bleeding the brakes. Good Luck.

The clutch goes all the way to the floor and wont g into gear checked the fluid iy is low or gone what do i do and what kind of fluid do i use


If the fluid is low, fill it and bleed the system. Once bled and operating check for leaks which would all be external if fluid loss was encountered. Use ordinary good quality brake fluid. The bleeding method is the same as for brakes and the bleeder nipple is on the clutch slave cylinder on the bell housing.
