have you check the slave cylinder to see if its moving when someone puts there foot on the clutch.
And check the adjustment on the master cylinder.

SOURCE: fitted new clutch and slave cylinder in 2.5 v6

crawl up under the dashboard & look where the clutch pedal rod goes through the firewall. look for traces of brake fluid at the rubber boot of the rod. a clutch master cylinder normally will leak to the inside of the vehicle & down the firewall when it fails. Replace as required & bleed clutch system using the bleeder valve that should be on the slave asy.

SOURCE: my clutch pedal sits on the floor, doesnt come up

pull up clutch pedal, all the way up. now fill fluid to top, now open the slave cylinder, it should bleed just with gravity. let it drip for a few minutes or until you have to fill it up 2 times. Make sure that when the pedal is all the way up, that the piston is all the way back on the master cylinder. look up at the back of the master cylinder under the dashl. there is an adjustment. you want just very little play between the pedal rod and the piston, just enough that there is some play. but you need some play there. if there isnt any play, adjust the rod.

My 94 f150's clutch was spongy and now it goes to the floor and won't come back up, there is no pressure, what do I do?


check the slave cylinder but I suspect that the clutch master cylinder needs replacing. If that is the case replace the slave cylinder as well as it will be close to failing as well

2003 f150 clutch goes to the floor and pops back up but wont shift


sounds like the master cylinder reservoir is empty of fluid. re-fill with fluid and bleed all air out of system all the way to the slave cylinder,,, this will / should restore the system.
also,, check to make sure there is not fluid dripping from under the truck when you press in on the clutch pedal ( could be a leak or bad slave cylinder (?) ),, but I would say that the system just needs to be bled.
