Question about 1993 Dodge Dakota
Vehicle: 1993 Dodge Dakota 6 cylinder manual transmission Problem: Clutch Description: I was driving to work when in the process of shifting from 4th to OD, my clutch petal depressed to the floor board. I pulled my vehicle over due to not being able to engage any gear. I sat there for about ten min and realized the clutch pedal would go down about an inch allowing me to continue to drive. Once I got to my destination I pumped my clutch hoping to get some pressure back, but nothing happened. After an hour I went back out to take a better look and pressure was back. I went ahead and started it and took it back home. On the way home the pedal lost pressure again, but this time it was associated with a squeal, similar to what a serpentine belt would do if it were needing replaced. I checked the fluid level and saw it was empty without signs of leaking, I added the dot 3, in hopes I could get something going on I drove around the block. The squeal dissipated slightly, but this time once I made a complete stop the clutch was no longer able to be engaged. I proceeded to try to pump it and the master cylinder seems to have pushed thru the floor board.
I would suggest looking at your slave cylinder first . Check for obvious signs of leaking . That is what generally goes out first then losing your fluid your master cylinder goes out or at very least needs to be bled . Sounds more like your master has also gone out .

Testimonial: "Thank you Andy. It was dry when I checked it. The slave cylinder anyway. Considering there's no pressure in the master I'm going to replace both just to be certain. I'm pretty sure when I pumped it it broke anyway. Just the squealing right now throws me off. Don't know if that is common or not."

you have to replace the master and slave. if there is no bleeder, you might get lucky bench bleeding it, but the whole assy, comes from dealer pre-bled. The system is sealed and even to do a clutch or trans, you shouldnt have to take it apart. DO NOT PUSH CLUTCH WITHOUT ALL PARTS HOOKED UP! youll break it.

Under hood next to master brake cylinder.it dos sound like a clutch / or clutch fluid problem / there will be a black rubber in it that you have to remove to add fluid / it is round / hope this helped Good Day.

This is most likely an issue with the clutch slave cylinder... Typically, if the clutch master cylinder fails, the clutch pedal will not return and [usually] sinks to the floor under it's own weight. If the pedal returns, it's typically a clutch slave cylinder issue. The best thing to do is to replace both cylinders so that you'll not have to worry about either cylinder failing again.
