1996 nissan maxima clutch sticks to floor

I have a 1996 nissan maxima 5 speed manual....just recently did an engine swap and added a turbo/intercooler system.....a week into driving it my clutch pedal just completely sticks to the floor. I tried bleeding it from on top of engine bay and directly from transmission and it pushed liquid through but the clutch pedal stays soft as can be and sticks to the floor. i am told it is either my slave cylinder or master cylinder....any way to check these to be sure or if it could be something else?

Yes, Briong the pedal up where it belongs, then open an fill your master cylider. Then go below and open the bleeder intil the fluid runs/drips steady and free of any bubbles. Do not pump the pedal. When only fluid comes out, tighten/close the bleeder and give it a try. Good Luck. If peal dives again, replace the master cylinder.

1996 nissan maxima clutch squeals pedal stuck to floor


Sound like you're going to need a whole new clutch assembly, but if the fluid level was dry you may have sucked air into the system which means that the clutch will have to be bled at the slave cylinder, just like you would brakes. The squealing sound is coming from the throw out bearing, usually when the do that it means that the bearing is frozen and cannot spin. Either way it looks like you'll be dropping the transmission to work on the clutch.

Turbo installation on 1996 nissan 200sx


That vehicle never came with a turbo as an option. Therefore adding a turbo would be custom work. You may find someone online who has documented their modification process. If you purchase an aftermarket turbo system it will come with a manual. Short of that such a document does not exist.

How do I bleed the master clutch cylinder


It will take two people, one to push clutch peddel, and one to open bleeder, same as bleeding breaks, the person pushing peddel pumps peddel a few times and the last time holds to floor, other person opens bleeder to let air out, and then closes bleeder while peedel is still depressed, do this process over and over untill you get clutch or a steady stream of fluid with no air , while keeping an eye on fluid level in resavor.
