Question about Nissan Pickup

2 Answers

I have a 1989 Nissan Pickup 2WD and my clutch pedal goes all the way to the floor board with little or no resistance. I replaced the master cylinder and bled the master and slave cylinders quite a few times. Still the problem is there. I haven't been able to drive the truck in a month now. Please advise. Thanks

    I did not replaced the slave cylinder. I only replaced the master cylinder. Should I replace the slave as well?

The clutch dropping to floor is a problem with clutch. When you apply pressure, springs in clutch give you pressure on petal. You have a bad clutch. You could also have a bad pressure plate. You won't know all damage until clutch is removed. Big job! Need to pull trans out.

    YES.

    Please make sure you stress it is a 2WD.


    The slave cyc. take a lot of pressure to move the heavy clutch.

    I will inspect all the metal line and see is it rusted.

    A little preventive maintenance will save you a lot of heart burn later.


    Fill and pump until ALL and I mean ALL the old fluid is out of the system.

    OLD fluid soak in moisture and it will give.

    After you pump and purge then start monitor the fluid level for other potential/undiscover leaks


    Good luck

New clutch installed. No pedal, stays on floor unless I bring it back up with my hand. No resistance.


`Did it bleed, did fluid come out in a steady stream? Isn't there a spring to bring the pedal off the floor?
Check the linkage of the pedal to rod to the clutch master cylinder, make sure that is all together. Any chance the master has an internal leak and won't build hydraulic pressure down at the slave? If you get it bled, then watch the slave operation while someone works the clutch pedal. The piston on the slave should extend and push the clutch fork enough to disengage the clutch.

1988 chevy k2500 clutch pedal has no resistance


Your truck has a hydraulic clutch release system, you have a problem in it due to a leak in the slave or the master cylinder, The slave cylinder which is the one that leaks most often is inside the bell housing and it requires the ****** be removed to replace it.

I have a 1990 nissan pickup with a problem with the clutch pedal. there is no clutch press at the clutch pedal when i press on the pedal it just falls to the floorboard and does not return. i can lift it...


First, try bleeding it. Put a 2 foot peice of vacuum hose on the slave cylinder bleeder screw. Loosen the bleeder screw. Put the other end of the hose into a clear bottle or brake/clutch fluid. ( have the bottle about half full). Now, have someone pump the clutch by hand while you watch for bubbles in the bottle. When it stops bubbling, you have all the air out, and you can tighten the bleeder, and remove the hose, and refill the reservoir.
If it won't bubble, and no fluid comes out, your master cylinder needs replacing.
( P.S. - The slave cylinder is down under the truck. It's what pushes the clutch rod.)

Clutch go's all the way to floor with no resistents can not shift gears engine won't stay on. 1987 5 speed pickup truck


Sounds like the hydraulic fluid may have leaked out of a line or the slave cylinder is leaking, or the master clutch cylinder has an internal leak that doesn't actuate the clutch effectively when the pedal is pushed to the floor.

Clutch goes all the way to the floor fluid comes out of cylinder under hood only shift when ignition is off


The problem is either the clutch master cylinder or the line going from the master cylinder to the clutch slave cylinder.Put some DOT 3 or4 brake fluid in the cylinder under the hood and have some-one look at it while you push the clutch pedal down a couple times. You should be able to see where it is you are losing the fluid.

No clutch resistance


You seem to have a damaged slave cylinder, just going off of previous experience. The master would normally leak . Good Luck
