The clutch is fed by the brake's .. its actuallly jsut break fluid.. if your low on clutch fluid it means you must have a leak check the master it self for leaks.

Clutch pedal falls to floor and does not disengage clutch

the clutch fluid maybe low or you may have a bad clutch slave or master cylinder

Manual transmission clutch will engage

There are two possibilities to consider:
  1. the master cylinder is leaking/by-passing hydraulic fluid
  2. the slave cylinder is leaking/by-passing fluid
You didn't mention a fluid leak, so that would eliminate the obvious cause of a leaking pipe. However, check for leaks around the master cylinder (on the firewall) and at the front of the engine by the clutch itself. This would indicate which of the two might be the problem, If they haven't been replaced in many years, it's probably sensible to replace both at once. The slave cylinder can be replaced without removing the engine. If you have ABS, you'll likely need to loosen/remove the alternator.

Good luck!

Lost my clutch in my saab 9000.. petal goes 2 the floor ..there is nothing there.. i checked the fluid and it was fine but added alittle more .. wondering if its the master or slave cylinder..? how could i...

if the fluid hasn't gone down, then likely no leak. therefore suspect either a mechanical linkage problem, or a by-pass problem.

Start by checking the linkage to the master cylinder to make sure that the pedal is actually actuating it.

Other possible causes are:
air trapped in the system which will give a spongy feel to the pedal;

fluid by-passing the piston, I'd expect that if the by-pass was in the slave, the pedal would have some resistance.

you can bleed the clutch system but need something like a radiator pressurising pump to pressurise the system (pump once or twice only to avoid over-pressurising! and don't let reservoir get empty) Otherwise it's just like bleeding brakes.

Hope this helps, if it does please give me a "thumbs up"!
