Sounds like a Clutch Slave Cylinder. Check under your front canopy for a small reservoir (looks like a brake fluid reservoir) on the firewall inline with the brake pedal or it may be up under the dash. Check the fluid level. If it is low or empty you could refill it and bleed (drain the air) from the slave cylinder line, found where the transmision and engine connect. Just adding fluid wont fix it, as if it is this simple, you have air in the hydraulic line. This would be an easy fix. However, I think your Slave cylinder failed or you have a more serious clutch replacement ahead. The slave is easy, bolts on and then you just bleed the line as noted before. Any shop could replace a slave cylinder for 2-3 hours of labor. Good luck

98 golf clutch pedal went to the floor. Car would not engage any gear. Fixed cable so pedal now feels good but still won't engage I can move gear lever any where, release pedal but nothing happens.


What do you mean when you say you fixed the cable. It sounds like the cable broke and you replaced it. Is that correct. If so, did you adjust the free play in the clutch pedal to the manufacturers specification. If you have not done this correctly the clutch will either not disengage, or no engage properly. From your description it appears as though there is n free play and hence the clutch is staying disengaged even when you release the clutch pedal. If this is the case, then try lengthening the cable until the clutch pedal moves with say 25 mm of free movement before anything happens, and try again.

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.

Need to adjust my clutch on a Fiat Strada


If you look up under the dash, there should be an adjustment, if its not there, then it will be on the other end of your clutch cable.

It sounds like the throw out bearing separated. You will want to change the clutch and pressure plate when you replace the throw out bearing.

IF you have bled the clutch system and managed to get a firm clutch then the clutch plate has been installed back to front and the clutch center is hitting the bolts that hold flywheel onto the crankshaft. If you have no not got a firm predal pressure replace the clutch master cyl

Intermittent clutch failure


Either there is low clutch fluid or air in the system. Or the clutch slave cylinder is leaking within itself.

After changing transmission and clutch in 91 Wrangler, clutch goes to floor. Tried bleeding line but didn't work.


The clutch should go to the floor =) But if it's not disengaging the clutch disk, there's definitely a problem between the pedal and the clutch disk. I'm guessing you have a hydraulic clutch?

Check your pedal height, make sure it is set to specifications. It has to be a certain distance from the floor, if not it will not disengage the clutch.
