SOURCE: Clutch pedal travel is excessive. Sits about 2"

A clutch pedal takes MUCH more travel to function correctly, when compared to a brake system...

A clutch needs to be replaced (maybe) when it SLIPS, Chatters, Or fails to release...

Other than that, the clutch will need to be adjusted to allow for total release of the relese bearing when pedal is released, and full disengaugement when pedal is depressed....Have a mechanic look at the adjustement, as proper adjustment gives longer clutch life. This is a periodic adjustment item.

SOURCE: Ford transit 52 plate clutch pedal goes soft then

Check your transmission fluid. If it's low, you could have a leak.
Try it again when the car is in your driveway. Give the clutch a few pumps and then check to see if you're not leaking transmission fluid.

If there's no leaks and the fluid is at a normal level, I'd say the Clutch Master Cylinder likely needs to be replaced.

Pushing the pedal pushes the piston in the cylinder. If the seal on this cylinder is bad, the fluid slowly leaks around the seal and the pedal goes soft. "Pumping it up" circulates fluid through the system and gets a normal amount of fluid "under" the piston again, so it feels better again, but when you press, it starts all over again.

Good luck!

Ford transit 52 plate clutch pedal goes soft then csnt change gear then pump pedal pedal goes back to normal drive for a short while then clutch pedal goes soft again and just repeats as above just bought...

The clutch hydraulic system has a problem-either the clutch master cylinder or the slave cylinder on the bell housing may be at fault.

If the brake fluid is low in the clutch master cylinder reservoir, there may be a leak to the outside. Refill and check for leaks while someone pumps the clutch pedal. Check around the clutch master cylinder (also under the dash- if wet there around the top of the clutch pedal or if wet on the carpet below the pedal, the master cylinder is leaking.) Check the single line from the clutch master to the bell housing where the slave cylinder is. If no leaks found, likely the clutch master cylinder or the slave cylinder has failed internally.

Is it safe: there won't be any further damage caused by running it, but if shifting gets harder and harder to do, that may cause a driveability problem.

I hardly have any clutch pedal and have to press it all the way to the floor to engage. Time for a new clutch?

Before condemning the clutch, check the clutch hydraulics. If the hydraulics are failing, the clutch it self could be fine. In your engine compartment, there should be two aluminum cylinders coming out of the fire wall. One will be attached to the brake booster and the other directy to the fire wall. Check the fluid level in the one at the fire wall. Top it off with Dot 3 brake fluid. CAUTION! Brakefluid will damage the paint on your car, so if you spill any on it or touch the surface with a fluid saturated rag, rinse it off with water!
If the fluid level is low, top it off and then pump the pedal rapidl rapiidly. It should come up to a normal height for a short period of time at which point you should be able to drive the car and see if the clutch it self feels normal, No slippage and no grinding of gears. The fluid loss is usually from the master cylinder. From inside the car, with a small light, follow the clutch pedal up to where the rod the pedal pushes can be seen entering the fire wall. Look for traces of fluid leaking out of the back of the cylinder. If the clutch master cylinder has failed, I usually recommend replacing the slave cylinder at the same time.

Can't get clutch to bleed on 1996 s 10 we have bleed bleed and bleed

Hi if you have done the following to bleed the clutch.
1 open bleed screw
2 push pedal to floor and keep on floor
3 do bleed screw up
4 lift pedal
5 undo bleed screw
6 push pedal to floor
7 do bleed screw up
8 lift pedal up
you need to repeat this a few times but making sure the fluid level dont drop below the lowest level else you will get air in the system.

right now if you have done the above properly and you still either get the pedal going to the floor and staying their or you have no pedal at all then this points to their being a fault with either the clutch master cylinder or clutch slave cylinder, now in most cases the one that fails is the master cylinder this is the one that is connected to the clutch pedal now its usually this one that fails and causes the pedal to go to the floor or have no clutch.

but it could also be the slave so bare this in mind, if the pedal comes back up after pushing it down then the chances are its the slave at fault and this is the one on the gearbox that operates the clutch arm.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

Have a 2004 jeep wrangler x with a manual transmission and when it is in nutral and the clutch out it rattles. Is this normal? i still have the factory warranty and went to a chrysler dealer and they tried...

A rattling noise from the transmission is never a normal condition no matter what anyone says, and the first thing to do is to check the transmission fluid level, but it sounds to me like the throw-out/release bearing is riding the clutch pressure plate, and when the clutch pedal is in the up position the throw-out/release bearing and the clutch pressure plate should not be touching each other, and the only time that they should make contact is to release the clutch disk in order to shift the transmission into gear. There should be about 1 to 2 inches of free play in the clutch pedal, and the clutch should start to grab within 1 to 2 inches of letting the clutch pedal up off of the floor, and if this is not the case you might need to have the clutch properly adjusted especially if the clutch does not start to grab until the clutch pedal is half way up from the floor. Also, the main bearing in the transmission could be going out due to low fluid, or a damaged pilot bearing that is allowing the transmission input shaft to wobble just enough to cause a rattle from the main bearing or even a vibration in the transmission.

Is there a way to adjust the manual clutch on a 2004 Hyundia Santa Fe? If not, how to read the feedback from the pedal?

No Adjustment. What is the pedal doing? does it "feel" normal? is the fluid level OK? If its low, there is a leak. Replace the Master and Slave cylinder. If the clutch releases at the top of the pedal travel, the clutch is worn out.

Clutch fluid leak

the 900 uses the same reservoir for both brake and clutch; it's in front of the firewall on the side of the pedals, immediately visible when you open the hood. Milky plastic, with a screw top; max and min levels marked by lines.

clutch leaks can be at the slave cylinder in the clutch, which will likely cause slipping clutch; at the master cylinder, which may show as fluid inside the car; or in line between them (runs from master cylinder at firewall to front of engine, where the clutch is located).

Look for leaks on ground and relate to location above leak in engine bay
