You can see which it is by opening the bonnet and looking
if you see a clutch master cylinder it will be hydraulic and will need bleeding and fluid in the reservoir
If you see a cable then it will need a new cable.

SOURCE: Bleeding clutch slave cylinder

i think youre doing the right thing. they are very stubborn to bleed because the hyd. line goes up high across back of engine before droppiing back down to slave cyl., trapping air. could try to gravity bleed by opening bleeder at slave, cap off of master cyl, full with fluid then it may start to come out after a bit. then try your process again. or can try to bleed at connections further up the line, working your way back to bleeder. hope this helps. be patient.

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.

SOURCE: clutch pedal stays 2 the floor on a hydralic

Did you bleed the system? When you replace the the master and/or slave cylinder you have to bleed the system just as you would with brakes. There is a bleed screw on the slave cylinder. Open the bleed screw, have a helper depress and hold the clutch pedal down.Tighten the bleed screw, then release clutch. Repeat this procedure until you have removed all air from the system and the clutch pedal is firm. Keep an eye on the fluid level to avoid sucking air into the system. If you have done this, remember there is a possibility that the master or slave cylinder is defective.

SOURCE: clutch pedal to floor

the most common cause of this is the slave cylinder and not the master, but it is my experience that they should be repalced as a pair.

Hydraulic clutch in a 2001 nissan altima gxe 5 speed manual


Open the hood and look for the clutch master cylinder.
It is smaller than the brake master cylinder, but should be very near it.
The clutch master cylinder is about half the size of the brake master cylinder.
Take the lid off and see if it is full.
If it is empty, the likely problem is the slave cylinder (which is mounted on the transmission at the other end of the brake fluid line), has failed and needs to be replaced.
It will likely not do any good to fill the clutch master cylinder, as you will trap air in the line.
The slave cylinder will need to be replaced, and the line bled to get the air out.
Be blessed.
