Question about 2002 Kia Sportage

1 Answer

My clutch pedal, after driving for a while, or even sitting idle for a while, will basically fall all the way to the floor if i touch it with my foot. it's like it's stuck down there, or won't release

The problem comes and goes. i've noticed it mostly after i leave the truck running but idle for a short while.

The spoongy feeling is a defective clutch slave cylinder. Generally a cluthc will not slip because of a pressure issue with hydaulics.

If the clutch is slipping with your foot off the pedal it defineately is time for a clutch job... Best bet is to get it inspected to be sure.

Depends on mileage.
If it's due to be changed, replace all parts, but I'd guess a hydrulic issue or adjustment problem.

Check Engine light is on. Find out what DTC (diagnostic trouble code) is set and I can help you more. You can get a code puller from your local parts store.

SOURCE: When I'm driving my kia sedona 2.9 automatic is

The throttle position sensor on the intake area and the kickdown switch are both suspect in this. If your pushing hard enough to shift down it could be that sensor is faulty, If not the change in position is to fast for the faulting position sensor. Those are the cheapest things to replace, The other maybe the transmission modulator that tells the unit to shift down.

Clutch pedal sitting on floor/no return.


It may be the clutch assy. but before I did that I would check the cable out as it seems strange the pedal would stay on the floor even if the clutch went out. There should be a return spring on the pedal.

Put in new clutch shifts fine but smell like it's burning, acts like it adjusted to much . it s a 97 bmw 540i, it has self adjustor, I thought i read somewhere that something has to reset in computer


Clutch doesn't have computer and is not monitored by any other system.
Very rare car here and I don't remember if it's hydraulic or cable clutch.
If it's hydraulic then there is no adjustment.
If it's a cable then it may have one.
In any case make sure that :
1)you are not riding the clutch , in other word you are not the cause of it.When you drive, keep your foot out of clutch pedal , exept when you shifting , even when you think you just have you foot on it without pressure you are wrong , little touch already apply pressure to the system disengaging the clutch.
2)Cable adjustment is ok if aplicable.
3)Clutch engaging at no more then 70% of pedal travel distance.
4)You replaced pressure plate when clutch has been done.
5)Flywheel was in a good shape(not grooved or burnt) at the time of clutch replacement.
There is a way to check if clutch is slipping.
When you go at 35-40MPH shift it to 3d gear , take your foot of clutch pedal completly then floor the gas pedal , if RPM rising much faster then you gaining the speed there is a possibilities that clutch is slipping.(you can also smell it if it burns)
Make sure you are not hazard for any traffic when doing this test.

Peugeot 106 1.5D. the clutch was slipping so new clutch fitted 2 weeks ago. It was still slipping so that garage replaced the clutch again. Guess what? It is still slipping. Any idea what is going on?


Yes clutch pedal should start to drive about 1inch off the floor and when driving keep your foot away from the pedal,/ also when new clutch is fitted did they fit a complete clutch assy /and did they surface grind the flywheel as if it was badly worn on the 1st one then the new one wouldent last very long.
as when the clutch starts to drive 1" from the floor clutch is good /when it engages right out its buggered and slips so ask about the f/wheel
