I am not a mazda guy but it sounds like the pressure plate is bad. Have you check the clutch linkage to be sure something did not slip or break. If so I would be looking at the clutch pressure plate.

How to adjust the clutch on a 1999 Ford escort ZX2


The clutch is not adjustable it is fully hydraulic. That means it is self adjusting, if the clutch pedal engages high on the pedal and the clutch is hard to push you need a new clutch plate and pressure plate.

Clutch not engaging


Well, it would shift easily with engine off, because the transmission input shaft is not turning. Engine running and clutch engaging good, the input shaft would again be stationary and allow smooth shifting.
What you have to determine is if the clutch disc or pressure plate is bad (a new clutch is needed), or if the pedal hydraulic system has a malfunction. When you push the pedal down, a rod from the top of pedal pushes into the clutch master cylinder bolted to the firewall under the hood. This cylinder has a reservoir filled with brake fluid. When the rod forces fluid from the clutch master down a steel line and into the clutch slave cylinder down on the transmission bell housing, the hydraulic pressure forces a plunger from the slave cylinder to extend and push the clutch fork lever a small amount, enough to force the clutch release bearing (aka throw-out bearing) against the pressure plate. This relieves pressure on the clutch disc and input shaft becomes stationary for easy shifting.

My 97 Trans Am clutch pedal stays on the floor and must be returned by slipping my toe under the pedal and flipping it back up. The clutch is a Valeo style (all LT1 engines with manual trans used this...


Have you checked the pedal spring?
Most cars but not all have a pedal hanger spring, this keeps the pedal up and off the floor even if not connected to anything.
These springs do break and when they do the symptoms you report are the outcome.
If you get on the floor and look up at your pedal hangers, and with your free hand check the pedal operation/swing. If your vehicle has this spring you will see it as you look up, if the spring is broken it is a simple job to replace it.

Some vehicle have a spring like this:

Clutch suddenly has no resistance and car won't shift gears. Fluids were low, have put fluid in the reservoir but still doesn't work. How do you bleed a clutch line?


on the transmission there is a slave cylinder that works like a brake cylinder, when you apply pressure to the clutch pedal a rod inside the vehicle under the dash pushes into a clutch master cylinder, (almost like a brake master cylinder without the reservoir, as the clutch master cylinder works off the brake master cylinders reservoir) the plunger in the clutch master cylinder applies fluid pressure to the slave cylinder,(located down on the trans near the clutch fork assembly) which projects a piston rod into the clutch fork dis-engaging the clutch. To bleed the clutch slave cylinder locate the bleeder screw on the slave cylinder,break loose so it loosens and tightens easily. Check fluid in brake master cylinder reservoir,fill if needed, while bleeder on the slave cyl is closed have a helper push clutch pedal to floor and back 7-8 times, (At first the clutch might stay at the floor, just pull it up by hand or foot and continue) after several pumps with no rest time push pedal to the floor and hold down with foot pressure, at this time loosen the bleeder on slave untill fluid leaks out, watch for air bubbles, close bleeder and repeat untill there is no sign of air bubbles, (make sure to check fluid in the brake master cylinder and keep fill as needed, do not let fluid get less than 1/2 empty as it might **** air and you will have to start over) If this does not bring clutch to operate then you need to check if slave cylinder is reachig its full extension of push rod or not. If it is not then you will have to replace the clutch master cyl or the clutch slave cyl or both as seals are bad and wont hold pressure. Or you need to inspect the clutch fork,the throw-out bearing, or the pressure plate fingers and clutch plate for failure or broken bent parts. I hope it turns out to be a easy fix on that clutching thing.

The hydraulic clutch stopped working.It won't shift.There is no pressure on the clutch whne you push it down.


The clutch hydraulic system is very small. Check the resevoir is full. If empty fill. Try clutch. Still problem ? Bleed the clutch slave cylinder at the trans bleeder. You dont bleed this clutch like brakes pumping up several times. Have someone push clutch to the floor and hold it there, then you open and close bleeder while keeping pedal to the floor. Check the fluid level every time you open/close the bleeder as this system is so small and will empty quick.

My cluch keeps stiking to the floor in my 1989 mazda mx6


check all mechanical parts of clutch pedal make sure there is no catching or draging in its joint lube if possible also check the spring that pulls the clutch pedal back up make sure not damaged or worn out, A different problem may be in your hydrolic clutch system, such as a bad slave cylinder or your system may just need bleeding, if you have a problem with your hydrolics when the clutch goes to the floor and stays you will not be able to disengage your clutch as well until you pull the clucth back up and pump it a few times.

Clutch slipping when it get hot


Check the adjustment of the clutch push rod. It is the rod that connects the clutch pedal to the clutch master cylinder.

1996 MX-6 V6 5 Speed: Clutch suddenly goes to the floor but....


It sounds like a fault with the clutch master cylinder or possibly the slave cylinder at the gearbox. With the age of the vehicle and the cost of the parts I'd recommend replacing both. This may not be something you want to tackle yourself, groveling around under the dash removing bolts for the master cylinder is not much fun, and clutch systems can be difficult to bleed up when they get air in them. I'd recommend taking it to a brake specialist (they do clutch work as well) and getting an estimate on costs before going ahead. Get a few estimates from a few garages to ensure that you are getting a good deal.

Hope this helps.
