Clutch leaking Just got my car out of shop again. It is a 97 5 speed Pathfinder. When we got it home it started leaking all of the clutch fluid on ground. Apparently leaking from seal going into clutch.

My car starts just replaced an altenator belt and now the car wont shift into gear is making a grinding noise


Presumably manual transmission.

Car probably won't go into gear because the clutch is stuck or won't clear.

There is no obvious connection between the alternator belt and the clutch unless perhaps being careless in the engine compartment the clutch hydraulic pipe or cable adjustment got damaged.

I have a 87 5 speed pathfinder and the gears started to go on the transmission . now the transmision wont go into any gear.


Hi Robert,I have 85 Nissan 4x4,know these Nissan's very well,you stated your clutch fluid in reservoir was empty,which means your clutch slave cylinder is bad and leaking.It's located on the side of transmission with 2 bolts holding it on,may have fluid on it,they use brake fluid.Here's a guide on how to replace,here's the part,very easy to replace.You can fill up with fluid and bleed to get you where you need to go,will hold up temporary,best to get a bleeder kit at Autozone to bleed.

The cylinder was empty this morning in the 1990 pathfinder for the clutch, pedal went to floor, filled master cylinder and holding fluid but pedal is still on floor. What to do....


you need to inspect the clutch hydraulic system to look for a leak.check in the truck were the master cylinder bolts to the firewall as if the master is leaking out the back it will show up the leak in this area.check around the master under the hood to see if there are signs of it leaking.check at the transmission were the slave cylinder is as this is another place they leak.if you have to fill the master because its empty there is a leak somewhere.you also may need the clutch replaced as the slave cylinder moves out to adjust for wear of the clutch which will lower the fluid level but not cause it to be empty.you will have to bleed the clutch system at the slave cylinder,there should be a bleeder screw to do this.if you find the leak in the clutch system you will have to replace the system as some come complete master lines and slave.some come with just the slave,lines,master as separate components.

97 honda Ex Accord Standard Transmission. Having problem shifting into 1st or reverse when starting up car. while going down road it shifts fine. week prior same problem, told son to check fluid level,...


problem is in the hydraulic clutch system
low fluid indicates a leak at the slave cylinder and not holding pressure indicates a leak at the slave cylinder or in the clutch master cylinder
If the master cylinder and slave cylinder have not been replace in side 5 years ago , the have them replace by a specialist brake and clutch shop
at this point there is nothing wrong with the clutch proper

mcdevito75 here, By Clutch I figure you mean a manual transmission 3 or 4 speed. but in any case you see oil leaking for the right front of your car. True, engine oil and Power steering fluid if leaking would be on the left side of the front of your car. The only other fluid on the right side of the car from the front is Brake fluid, I'll bet your clutch is power assissted and the fluid is leaking out of the booster to assist the clutch and thus the clutch won"t work. See your local auto repair shop and have them check it out for you.

usually when this happen you lost fluid pressure look for a fluid leak at the clutch master cylinder under the hood ,it should be by the brake master ,it has a small plastic tank on top with a black rubber cap or underneath on the transmission there is the clutch slave cylinder it will have a small 2 inch rod that pushes the clutch fork ,look for the rubber boot on it ,see if there is fluid coming out of it ,also follow the clutch fluid lines maybe somthing has damaged one and its leaking !

97 Jeep TJ sport - Clutch Pedal has gone limp


It's possible your clutch fork broke. Also, check to see if it's a hydraulic clutch. You could have a leak in the hydraulic system. Both would cause your clutch pedal to go to the floor.

The clutch fluid is leaking on my truck and it won't go into gear right.


You need to fix the Leak in your hydraulic system to your clutch on your transmission. The reason that your transmission is not going  in to gear right is that the fluid is to low to push the throw out bearing to disengage the clutch fully. 
Once the fluid get's too low, you'll not be able to disengage the clutch to put it in to gear or change gear.
Check the fluid level to your hydraulic clutch reservoir and fill to the right level and fix the leak in the hydraulic lines.
Good luck and hope this helps. Keep me posted, glad to help.
