Clutch pedal sticks on floor

on the bottom of the clutch housing there is a bleed nipple, like on the brakes, if you have pumped the clutch with out enough fluid in the brake receiver container you would of put air in the clutch system, you need to keep it topped up all the time so its at max. and bleed the clutch, you will need to lift the clutch pedal by hand up and down a few times to get the air out, its not assisted like the brakes so it will take a good few pumps and tightening the nippel when it feels pressure.

What does it mean when the clutch petal goes all the way to the floor in my 2003 suzuki aerio

Your clutch fluid reservoir may need brake fluid-yes, it uses brake fluid as a hydraulic fluid. Check reservoir on the firewall. It will sit beside the brake master cylinder. The reservoir sits atop the clutch master cylinder.
If it was dry, the clutch may need bleeding down at the slave cylinder on the transmission housing-where the clutch fork sticks out of the transaxle.. Open the bleed valve on the slave cylinder, and have someone slowly press clutch down. Keep bleeding until a steady stream of fluid comes out when clutch is pressed. Then close bleed valve, check clutch operation-pedal should have some pressure on it now.

The clutch pedal seems to be very flopy and is not going into gear easily

Can be broken spring on the cluch pedal in side the car, that hold the pedal all the way back for full amount of brake fluid to the slave cylender, can be checked by pulling the pedal all the way up before steping it to the floor and putting in to gear or just look up under the daschbord on the pedal. Can allso be to little brake fluid in container. To check the master cylender rubber, step on the pedal putt in gear with engine running and wait with pedal all the way to the floor, if the rubber is gone the car wil start to go after some time (1/2-1 min or less) To check the slave cylender rubber will be dune the same way and working same way but it will be leaking out and on the floor.

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

My vehicle, mercedes Benz ,124, 1989 manual's clutch pedal is pressed down to the floor and does not kick back.

sounds like the clutch fluid resivior is bone dry or you have a spilt or leak in the line wich is allowing all the pressure to escape hence the pedal not moving back up, start by checking your clutch fluid level

I have a 1983 nissan king cab pickup and the clutch is stuck engaged, how do i fix it.

Dear evictoria: I can only take a few educated guesses as to your definition of the problem: 1. The clutch pedal has gone to the floor and will not come back up. If this is the case, you have run out of fluid in the clutch hydraulic reservoir located next to the brake master cylinder. If you lift the cover and it is empty, fill it with brake fluid. Get in the truck, lift the clutch pedal back up to the top and manipulate it up and down several times to see if any resistance is felt and if the pedal returns to the top rather than remaining on the floor. Remember to keep checking the reservoir for fluid. If it was a fluid loss problem, you will be able to drive the truck again, but the problem will return again unless the problem is fixed. Depending on the severity of the leak would determine if you could restore your pedal at all. Most of the time I have found that the Clutch master will start leaking before the slave cylinder does. Look up under the dash where the clutch pedal attaches to the master cylinder VIA a rod which it pushes through the fire wall. If the master cylinder is failing, you will see signs of fluid having been leaking inside the cab, down from around the rod coming out of the master cylinder.
2. If the Pressure plate has failed, it can create a problem where when you depress the clutch pedal, even though it feels as though it is releasing, some portion of the plate is still touching the disc and applying force to keep the disc from spinning freely from the flywheel. Thus it will remain engaged.
3. If the truck had been sitting a long time, sometimes a clutch will stick to both the pressure plate and flywheel and will not release when you depress the pedal. It is rare, but not unheard of.
I have never had an experience which had required my having to take the car apart to fix the problem. The method taken to get the clutch to release, is one which nothing less than an experienced and skilled driver on a road or in a large area with a few hundred yards to move in. First, the clutch pedal must feel normal in travel.
You will be starting it in gear, so be ready to pull it out of gear and shut the engine off in a split second if needed.
READY? Run the engine until it is at operationg temperature. This is to take the variables of cold running engies out of the equasion. Placing it in 1st gear, put you foot on the clutch and start the truck. It will **** and shudder briefly and then it will go without any problems. Once you are up to about 20 MPH, floor the gas pedal and let off, floor it and let off, floor it and let off. At the same time, you want to be pumping the clutch pedal. The combinations of all of the above mentioned will break the clutch free if it has seized from sitting. In my career as a Nissan tech since 1968, I have run into only a few other rare instances causing the same symptoms but they were were extremely rare. The pivot ball that the release bearing fork rides on has broken on two vehicles in the 40 years as a Nissan tech.
I hope one of these fore mentioned Items has fit you description and solved your problem. I wish you luck and hope it is the lesser of the ones I have described. If you have experienced a Clutch master cylinder failure and/or pending failure....replace both master and slave units. They are the same age and 99 out of a 100 times when only one is replaced, the other soon fails, often leaving the driver stranded. I'm the new guy on the block here at "Fixya" If I have helped you..... Your input response would greatly help me in my rankings. Thanks...mybunkey.........
