Your hydraulic slave cylinder for the clutch pressure plate has
a bad seal and is leaking brake fluid. It need to be rebuilt or
replaced.

You need a new clutch When your clutch pedal sticks to the floor means you have no brake fluid and that's whats leaking in the car so patch that up

SOURCE: brakes

Since there is no loss of fluid we can rule out any leaks. A poor booster would make you apply the brake much harder to stop. So somehow you are not developing the necessary pressure for the brakes to function. The pressure is developed by the master cylinder seals. You can get a rebuild kit or a rebuilt master cylinder but the real pain is bench bleeding the new one. Luck to you.

SOURCE: pedal goes to floor on 92 F250

I would strongly recommend checking your trucks R.A.B.S. (Rear Antilock Brake System) valve . It is located on the left frame rail just under where your left foot would rest . They can leak internally and exhibit the problems you are describing (loss of pedal , with no fluid loss) .
It is highly unlikely that a power booster would cause this , as a failed booster will show itself in these ways . 1) a hissing sound when you apply the brakes (indicates a vacumm leak) 2) rough engine idle/stalling when brakes applied (also indicates a vacumm leak) or 3) No power assist (brake pedal hard to push) .
If you do discover your hydraulic problem is in your RABS valve , don't forget to bleed it ,(there is a bleeder valve on it) and the rear brakes again after you replace it .
Hope this helps
Doug

SOURCE: Brake pedal goes down to floor. Putting brake fluid doesn't solve problem. Vehicle must coast to a complete stop.

First look for obvious leaks under the vehicle, especially the inside area of each wheel... If you see fluid, you have either a blown cylinder seal or a bad line (check the rubber hoses to the front and back brakes too) Repair the offending part and bleed the air out of the system... (remember to clean pads or shoes if they have fluid on them)... If you see no hint of leakage anywhere, then suspect the master cylinder... if you remove the master cylinder, check and make sure that it didn't leak fluid into the brake booster diaphragm (Brake fluid will destroy the booster)... as in any repair when you open the system (lose fluid), you will need to bleed out the air to restore function... hope this helps...;-)

Transmission wont shift it will go to 2 nd but not to third . but it takes it to be to the floor to make it shift to 2


I take it that you have a hydraulic clutch and you are saying that after 2nd gear there is no more clutch pedal . If that is the case replace the clutch slave cylinder and the clutch master cylinder as either or both is allowing the oil be bypass the pistons and cups.

1999 toyota rav4 wont go into first gear, i just repaced the clutch,clutch slave cylinder and clutch master clutch


Did you bleed the slave cylinder? Also, check pedal free play (about 1/2 inch) and pedal height (not sure on your Rav, you'll have to check with Toyota).
Only first gear, or difficulty going into all gears?

Clutch wont work


Check and make sure you have fluid in the clutch master cylinder. If it is low fill and check for leaks. Repair leaks as needed and bleed system. If fluid was full check adjustment and bleed system, if there is air in the system pedal will go to the floor.

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.
